Sports Roundup bit Ljayte .Uatbol TV - Baseball's Bread Winner NEW YORK (AP) — Great alarm already is being voiced in .some quarters over the drastic dropoff in big league attendance. It has, indeed, been a disturbing feature of the new season. But note thai there have been no howls of anguish to speak of from the club owners, the men who should be most concerned. The truUi is that, through the golden harvest from television and radio, the majors year after year are approaching closer lo semi independence ,of the fan who only a short time ago supported them totally by the dollars he left al the turnstile. The fan still is pick ing up the tab, all right, but he's doing it at the drugstore counter and in the corner delicatessen. A live audience of only 3.87-1 showed up nt Ebbeh Field on a re cent day to watch Robin Roberts, the game's greatest pitcher, try to stop the Brooklyn Dodgers short of a record 10 straight opening vie lories.

And he needn't have been from whai we were told by the man ol nnoiher bin league club about a month ago. Mr said that hi.s team— no pennant winner—would have a guaranteed income ol .something over $800,000 before the season opened, and he estimated thai several others would exceed that fiRiirp, possibly reaching the million mark. That is better, he pointed out, thHH »n added million in attend anee, for it Is pure velvet and there i.s no accounting to visiting clubs, who cut in for 20-plus per cent of the i^ate receipts.
