LOS ANGELES (UPI}- There was so much rain around here lately one guy at the baseball meetings came up with the suggestion a reward be posted for the return of the sun. Ernie Banks arrived. He showed up here the same way he does everywhere. All smiles. "Why not?" asked the Cubs' indefatigable Mr. Effervescence, who's an aquarian along with it, and will be 40 next month. "So what if it's been raining a few days? I never use the weather as a crutch. What for? Life is too beautiful for that." He's For Real There are some people who blieve Ernie Banks is one great big put-on. They get you off in a corner of the room and tell you nobody can be that happy. Not all the time, anyway. The people who try to'sell you that simply don't know Ernie Banks. "How do you stay so happy all the time?" a guy here at the meetings asked him. "It's not really that hard," Banks ansered him. "I don't work at being happy. It's just...well, I look at baseball and all sports as fun. Don't you?" People still ask you how long you're gonna keep playing?" "Yes, they do," said Banks. "What do you tell 'em?" "I say I'm gonna keep • playing as long as I can be of some help to bhe club. I know it sounds corny but that doesn't matter." "Life Begins At 40" "Don't you think you're slowing up?" "No. I'm just beginning to pick up. I'll be 40 January 31st and I believe life begins at 40." "Would you like to manage when you finish playing?" "Well, maybe. I suppose maybe I'd like to. Not to prove anything, though. Managing Isn't a matter of life or death with me." "What brings you to these meetings?" "These are the first I've ever been to. It just kinda happened. My in-laws live here, so my wife, the chifdren and I came out to see them for Thanksgiving. Then I was asked to come over here because I'm up for one of the awards." The award Ernie Banks talked about will be presented at a special dinner tonight. It is an award bestowed upon the player who best typifies the game on and off the field. In addition to Banks, the other candidates are Felipe Alou, Harmon K i 11 e b r e w, Willie Mays, Brooks Robinson and Pete Rose. Each would be an ideal choice but with Ernie Banks' track record he'll probably just miss and the award will go to somebody else. Nobody will ever be able to tell the difference if he doesn't get that award. Ernie Banks win be right there applauding the winner the same way he always does. All smiles.
