Bergesch. 38, was the last survivor of an experienced five-man front office staff Finley employed when he purchased the American League", club last December, The owner said their job was to build the Athletics, who had finished last the previous year, into a pennant contender. But before the halfway mark last season, Finley had fired three .of the five—including General Manager Frank Lane and field ,manager_-Joe,..Gordon. The fourth, /player:, personnels-director George Selkirk, quit during the season.
