Senators pitcher:Bob Porterfieid also returned his contract unsigned, ' while third 'baseman. Eddie Yost and outfielders Gil Coan and Jim Busby squawked about terms but didn't go through the formality of mailing back the contracts. • Club President Clark • Griffith said he expects all four will "fall in line at the right time" and added, "they all know if they're not satisfied with the terms, I'll raise them if they get going good during the year." But Vernon. pointing to the batting crown he won with a glittering .337 average, indicated he wants , more cash now rather than sometime during the season. .The 35-year-old first baseman said Griffith offered him a "slight raise," believed to be $2,500 .over his salary of S18.000 of last season, and sa,id emphatically, "it's not enough money." Porterfieid, a 22-game winner for the fifth-place Senators last season, also was offered an increase, estimated at $3,000, but also didn't think that was enough. . The Philadelphia Phillies, who already had contract rejections from five players, got still another headache when pitcher Bob. Miller balked at signing. Righthander Miller, who had an 8-9 record last season, thus followed in the steps of pitchers Robin' Roberts and Curt Simmons, and outfielders Richie Ashburn, Jack Mayo, and Clyde Shell. Old Satchel Paige wa s having his contract troubles, too, but his complaint was that the Baltimore Orioles haven't even sent him a contract yet. "I don't know anything about being released or about waivers being asked on me by Eeltimore,' 1 said Pagie in New Yoik. "All I know is I don't have a contract. They haven't let me know anything." The venerable pitcher issued a new estimate of his age, "about 49," but added, he thought he still had "about a pitch and a half—a piece of a curve and a high hard one." If the Orioles aren't interested. Salch said he will tour the country as in the olden days for "about another five years." Down in Walnut Ridge, Ark., pitcher . Johnny Sain said he'd heard he was getting *a contract from the Yankees — reported to boost has salary from $20,000 to $25,008—but said he just wasn't interested. The veteran of 16 years in the game stuck by his earlier announcement of retirement and said he would stay in the automobile business now. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Dodgers announced the signing of Pee Wee Reese, while others were announced by the Phillies, A's, Red Sox, and Indians. LONGVIEW.

Jan. .14 —UP— Ex- champion Ezzard Charles was . a "hungry" fighter Thursday, aiming for the steaks and chops he might buy should he -beat Rocky Marciano in a fight to regain the world heavyweight crown. . Charles, a 189 pounder from Cincinnati who succeeded Joe Louis as the heavyweight king by winning .an elimination tournament, became the hottest Marciano challenger Wednesday night when he finished Chicago's Bob Satterfield with a left hook knockout at one minute of the second, round. "Sure, we want Marciano." Manager Tom Tannas announced. "But we don't want to quit fighting until we get him.' We'd like a couple of more fights, with Nino . Valdes. or Dan Bucceroni, or anybody, until we can get Marciano. "Charles isn't a hungry fighter, lik e that," he said. "He's Sot property, but he isn't at the -point where he can quit fighting. And he won't be for a while." Charles' win over Satterfield.for which he received $4,000 Irom television, plus 54,882.23 as 35 -per cent of the net gate of $13,949 paid by ' 4,921 fans, didn't come easy. "He hurt me,.in the second round," Charles, 32, said, "he hurt me with one punch, just before I got him. But in the first round, he was just coming close. Had figured I'd get him in eight rounds, but I'm sure glad I didn't have to go that long. Not the way he was swarming on me.'' Diamonds range In color from pure white to coal 'black.
