He was all set to relax a little and enjoy himself and .some of his friends even came down to the ship the Leonardo da Vinci, to see him off Monday and bid him bon voyage. . The ship was due to sail at noon. Twenty minutes -before then a sheet of paper>with a message on it was ^slipped under the_ door of this |guy's stateroom. "The Italian Maritime Union has called a 24-hour strike read the message. "Try tomorrow." The guy with the Mets shrugged. "That's the kind of year it's been," he said. Ron Swoboda, the outfielder the Mets have up on the block for money, marbles or anything, laughed when he heard about the Leonardo da Vinci episode. "I know what he means," Swoboda said about the other member of the Mets left standing in shallow water so to speak. When Ron,Swoboda previously was last heard from he was somewhat unhappy and that's putting it . mildly. He was particularly unhappy with Gil Hodges, who manages the Mets, because Hodges has been playing him increasingly less the past few years and last season he played him less than at any time since originally coming to the club six years ago. • Swoboda Gives Interviews Ron Swoboda gave out a couple of interviews the past summer in which he came out and said loud and clear he didn't care if be once was considered the "darling" of all the Mets' fans, he wanted to be traded now because he felt Hodges had lost confidence in him. Three things have happened since Swoboda made that original announcement. One, he,and teammate Ed Kranepool opened a restaurant called "The Dugout" in Amityville, Long Island, not too far from where both live. Two, the Mets have done their best - to accommodate Swoboda by offering him around to everybody but you'd never believe how little they've been offered in return. And three, Swoboda is still with the Mets. This is the time of year to show a little extra good will toward your fellow man and Ron Swoboda certainly is ready. He isn't getting down on his knees or anything like that but it's obvious he has been doing some serious thinking about some of the things he said. "My opinions haven't changed. I still believe in them, but I realize now that to say some of the things I did and say them the way I did was wrong," Swoboda says. "Getting into the restaurant business helped, I think, because I'm the boss there and I see that an employer and employe never see thinge the same way. Maybe some of the problems we've bad, I mean Gil Hodges and I, are not problems anymore because I understand our relationship a little better now. Did Not Call Yankees "What I'm saying is that there has to be some growing. up on my part, a little more experience and maturity, and I think there has been. Incidentally, I read or beard someplace that I was supposed to have called the Yankees and have asked them to get me. That's not true. I never called them. I was thinking about it, but I know you're not allowed to do that." Was Swoboda aware of the second- and third-line players the Mets have been offered for him? "I'd heard about that, too, and I wasn't so surprisedn" be" said. "I know how the other guys think. They think look, Swoboda is in bad graces because he's mouthing off and he's become a problem but the fact is in the end I'm not the big problem they might think. "What do I think of my status now? I think the club still is trying to trade me but if it can't I'll go to spring training like nothing even happened. I think I've learned a great deal in . the past six months. Gil Hodges? I wish him nothing but the best." Swoboda means it. It's not generally known, and you won't get it from Swoboda, but he paid a special visit to Gil Hodges' home not too long after the Mets' manager suffered his heart attack two years ago. Hodges wasn't home. He was still in Florida recuperating. That visit by Ron Swoboda doesn't really prove anything pf course. But then again, maybe it does after you think about it for.a while. McGINN SIGNS MONTREAL (UPI) -Smuth- paw Dan McGinn, 7-10 last season, signed his 1971 contract with the. Montreal Expos Monday.

(UPI) Whenever Lew Alcindor and Wilt Chamberlain meet on a basketball court, people talk as if it is going to be a fight to the death. The two of them met Monday night here, with Alcindor winning the battle and his team the war. Alcindor and his Milwaukee Buck teammates won a sloppy, ragged game, 113-88, by being less sloppy and ragged than Chamberlain and his Los Angeles Laker teammates. The game started out as if neither team wanted to win. Alcindor was taking 10-foot jump shots that weren't going in so Chamberlain stayed away. But Alcindor wasn't the only non-hitter on the court. The first half ended with the Bucks leading, 50-42, and a national television audience was probably just as disappointed- as the 10,746 fans who filled the Milwaukee Arena to capacity. Bucks Coach Larry Costello characterized the first half as "some really sloppy basketball by both teams." " Alcindor finally started hitting in the third quarter and his 14 points equalled his entire first half effort.

The Cardinals*, now 5-1, were the first team to score more' than 80 points against Kansas, which had held its opponents to an average of 63 points in running off : six straight victories.

(UPI) The Sports Car Club of America's Trans-American sedan championship, plagued by the withdrawal of factory- backed teams, will be richer in 1971 than it was this year. The SCAA announced a 20 per cent increase in guaranteed purses over 1970. with $360,000 in prize money being awarded for the 12 races. However, the big manufacturers' battle for the 1970 title will be missing. Ford, which won the title in 1970, has withdrawn all racing support, and Chrysler also has pulled out of the Trans-Am. The lone factory representative is expected to be American Motors Javelin team, directed by Roger Penske. However, a change in the rules that raises the limit from two to 2.5, liters is hopefully expected to attract some Vegas, and Pintos from Detroit to challenge the imported Alfa Romeos, * Datsuns, BMWs and others for the small-engine title, . named the two-five challenge. . Races for the bigger Mustangs, Javelins, Camaros and Barracudas will carry minimum of $24,000. The small car races will have minimum purses of $6,000.
