But Kuhn displays gritty confidence that he is running the game right and that it is prospering as never before. As the major leagues pause this week for the All-Star break, Kuhn reflects on the free agent problem, the lack of a contract with the players' union and his big decision to kill Charlie Finley's meat sale. Kuhn describes his job this way: "Sometimes it's like standing next to a tornado." A lawyer himself, Kuhn heeds the advice of his counsel and won't comment on the Finley deal, in which the Oakland A's owner is suing him for striking down the proposed sale of three Oakland stars to the Yankees and Red Sox for $3.5 million. But in a mood of reflection, he talked about the future of the game, the unique powers of his office and the big question of why baseball is so like other businesses-and yet so different. Contract Soon With several Louisville Slugger bats lined up behind his desk in a Rockefeller Center skyscraper, Kuhn rolled up his sleeves and offered some ideas: --The major leagues and the players' union are making progress in their negotiations and probably will have a contract before the end of the season. This will answer a lot of questions about free agent status and the reserve clause, which has been nullified by the courts. That clause bound a player to one team. --There will be need for greater use of power by the commissioner to keep the game balanced and solvent. --Despite its problems, baseball can adjust to new laws, player power the eccentricities of individuals in the game so that the national pastime will not be wrecked or even damaged to any extent. To back up that point, Kuhn points to the obvious fact that the game has gained its greatest popularity. Attendnace is up about 1.4 million over the same time last season and seems certain to set a season Sandra Palmer Has Women's Golf Lead PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Sandra Palmer, the defending champion, dueled Jo- Anne Carner head-to-head Saturday and took a two-stroke lead after three rounds of the U.S. Women's Golf Championship at Rolling Green Golf Club. The 35-year-old Miss Palmer, at 5-foot-l the smallest woman on the tour, shot a two-over-par 37-36-73 for a 54-hole total of 217 over a small but tricky course that has defied the best field of 150. Although she lost her twostroke second- round lead, Mrs. Carner, recognized as the longest hitter in women's golf, was still in contention as she carded a six-over-par 38-39-77 for a three-round score of 219. Mrs. Carner led Miss Palmer by two strokes starting the third round, but a triple bogey on the par-three third hole and a double bogey on the 10th turned the struggle around. Jane Blalock also was in contention as she carded a 35-38-73 for 220. She actually tied for the lead after 10 holes, but fell back when she double bogeyed 14 and went one over par on 17. The rest of the field appeared to have succumbed to the deceptive looking 6,086-yard Rolling Green course with its treelined fairways, slick, elevated greens and deep-set bunkers. There was only one round of par or better Saturday--eight for three rounds-and that was a one-under-par 70 by Susie McAllister, who wound up at 224, eight strokes off the pace. Amateur Debbie Massey of Bethlehem, Pa., shot a threeover 74 for a 54-hole total of 223. At 225 were Sylvia Bertolaccini who shot 74 in the third round, and Amy Alcott who came in with a 78. Bowie Kuhn Gritty Confidence record-going beyond the 30 million ticket mark it has hit the past three years. Off-the-field problems and wrangling obviously have not affected the desire of the fan to pay money to watch the game, which prompts Kuhn to say, "Maybe the fans are shrewder than some of the commentators. 'Best Buy' "I think the fans understand that baseball can not be immune from problems that beset other businesses and that, whatever its problems, maybe baseball is still the best buy in entertainment," he said. "Problems between people within baseball and the commissioner? What's new?" he asked. "Baseball has been that way for 100 years. All commissioners have had strong critics. The leagues have fought as long as I can remember. All that is a perfectly healthy manifestation of our business. Ball clubs trying to win sometimes feel the commissioner is trying to interfere and you hear screams. That's perfectly healthy. It would be odd and antiseptic if we didn't have it." Critics have assailed Kuhn for killing Finley's deal because, they say, any businessman should be able to sell his property. Without addressing that directly because the issue now is in court, Kuhn explained why he thinks baseball is different from other businesses. "You have two major leagues and 20 minors. In order to succeed, competition must be regulated. You can't let the stronger teams put the weaker teams out of business. If the No. 1 steel company puts the No. 5 steel company out of business, that's okay. That's competition. But in baseball, if you destroy one of your partners, you ruin the league. You have to have organized rules, a commissioner and league presidents." Consistent Moves Kuhn sometimes has refrained from wielding his tremendous power because he LAST CHANCE!

Or the other hand, some of the decisions hf has made are consistent with the move to stop Finley's sale. Items: -In 1969, Montreal tried to trade Don Clendenon to Houston for Rusty Staub. Clendenon did not want to report to Houston, whose owner, Roy Hofheinz, then wanted the deal nullified. Hofheinz threatened legal action but the commissioner not only worked out a new trade agreement between the teams but ordered the Houston owner to apologize for intemperate statements or be faced with a severe fine. Hofheinz apologized and Kuhn talked Clendenon out of retiring. When the 1974 season opened, Hank Aaron had 713 home runs and the Atlanta Braves indicated they would not play him until the team got home. That would hype attendance. Kuhn ordered-the Braves to play Aaron as they normally would. Aaron hit the record-tying 714th homer in Cincinnati. Then he got the record-breaker in Atlanta. In the off-season of 1974-75, Kuhn suspended a rule which liberalized the drafting of college players after the clubs had approved it. He felt the issue had not been given sufficient study and he directed baseball to work with the colleges to seek a solution. That was done. Kuhn overrode the continuing objection of a number of owners last spring when he directed that spring training camps be opened even though an agreement had net been reached in contract talks between the owners and players.
