Mo. (UPI) Charles O. Finley, embattled owner of the Kansas City Athletics, jumped from the clutch es of the American League back into the collective lap of the city council today. The unpredictable owner pulled the unexpected again Sunday night by accepting the city's demand for a four-year lease on Municipal Stadium, a lease he repeatedly had vowed never to sign. But the city was in no hurry to put its signature on the dotted line. Finley, who has threatened to sue the American League, made it clear he was accepting the lease in the face of a league threat to kick him out of baseball. Mayor IIus W. Davis, to whom Finley addressed his telegram of acquiescence, said he was happy that the owner had accepted the city's proposal. But the mayor and other city officials declined further comment until after a meeting today of the city council's baseball committee. Davis said he also would confer with Joseph | 50 yd. breast — 1st, Bruce Kocsis, time: 38.3, Phillip Davis, 2nd 39.9. 50 yd. backstroke — 1st, Bill Brimberry, time: 37.4, 2nd.

Game. ican League, to determine the| Brian Connor. Bot Atkinson. Belinsky says he had too many distractions By HAL WOOD UPI Sports Writer PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (UPI) —The trouble with Bo Belinsky last year, he claimed today, is that he had too many distractions. The rangy left-hander is working harder than the lowliest rookie to regain his place in the sun with the Los Angeles Angels this year at their spring training camp. The 27-year-old hurlcr says he isn't about to get into trouble again. "I needed that engagement (to actress Mamie Van Doren) like a reservation needs more Indians," says Bo. "I became so preoccupied with other things that I didn't retain a good physical condition." Belinsky reached the peak of bis young career on May 5. 1962, when he hurled a 2-0 no- hitter against the Baltimore Orioles. Since that time he has been more or less on the skids —at least as far as pitching baseball for the Angels is concerned. He reported into camp underweight at 184 pounds. "I lost ten pounds during a night club engagement at Las Vegas." he says. "I've got to get that weight back before the season starts." The colorful character has put himself on a strict routine. He reports to work on time and he shows up at camp every day—which is an innovation in itself. He pitches batting practice and he listens intently to manager Bill Rigney when he is given instructions on how to bunt. "What I've got to do is win at least 15 games this season." he says. "Then when I talk to (general manager) Fred Haney at the end of the season about a new contract I can demand and get at least $25,000. "But what I really want to do is to establish myself as a winning major league pitcher over a five-year period. That's the kind of performance that really pays off." Belinsky was the first man on the Angels club to sign his contract this year. He was in that much of a hurry to make good on a comeback. Last year he had a 2-9 record with Los Angeles in two different whirls with them. In between he refused to report to Hawaii of the Pacific Coast League for a while. When he finally did he turned in a fine 4-1 mark with a 2.50 earned run average. In addition to that, he packed 'em in at every city in the league, drawing record crowds. The PCL could afford to pay him $50,000 a year just to play for them. But Bo doesn't have that in mind at all. He wants to make it big in the majors. Manager Eill Rigney listens to stories of Bo's claims of walking the straight and narrow. But he has no comment to make on the "new" Belinsky. He just shrugs his shoulders. He'll take the wait and see attitude. Rigney has heard Bo make these "adjustments" before. league's reaction to Finley's lat est move. Cronin received 1 copy of Finley's telegram. The baseball committee meet ing was scheduled to begin at 11 a.m., EST. Runs lasting about an hour each are expected to begin about 11 p.m. on February 29. 11:30 p.m. on March 1, 12 midnight on March 2, and 12:30 a. m. on the night of .March 3.

Huntington Beach Belmont, Long Beach, Cabrillo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Venice. Santa Monica, Malibu, Santa Barbara. Pismo Beach, and the beach between Morro Bay and Cayucos. Grunion may be taken on the beach or in the surf by hand only. No device of any kind may be used, and it is unlawful to dig holes in the sand to trap the fish. A sportfishing license is required for persons 16 years of age and over. There is no bag limit on grunion, says the DFG, but don't take more than you can use.

Hayes of Duquoin, 111., was named to a fourth straight one- year term as president of the Harness Racing Institute on Sunday. Also named officers of the research and development arm of harness-racing were James J. Dunnigan Sr., vice president; Louis L. Lobel, secretary; Preston Jenuine, treasurer; Stanley F. Bergstein, assistant secretary and Earl Flora, assistant treasurer. two were taken within the past year off the central California coast. Skipper Jack Baker of t h e charter boat radioed ashore as soon as t h e fish was hauled aboard, a n d a telephone call from his wife to DFG Marine Biologist Jack Carlisle, a Redondo Beach resident, brought Carlisle to the sportfish landing to pick up the fish. The rare specimen is being studied by DFG biologists at the California State Fisheries Laboratory on Terminal Island and afterwards will be lent to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco and given to UCLA for its scientific collection.

Slammin' Sammy Snead comes through By OSCAR FRALEY PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (UPI)—Slammin* Sammy Snead held his 114th golf cham pionsbip today after winning the PGA Seniors but argued that "only age makes it necessary." "Man," be said when he holed his final putt to win the Teachers Trophy and a trip to Scotland to meet the British Senior champion, "I don't feel like no 51." Actually he looks it and yet the old strength, suppleness and that famous fluid swing still all are there. Only four players broke par on the new PGA National Golf Course. Sam just broke it best of all, being nine strokes under par for the four rounds as he captured the Seniors on his first shot at the title. Slambo finished up at 279 with a final round of 71 and he was playing just as well as he ever has. For this was a long course swept by whistling winds. The rough is hardpan of] the worst sort and the greens j were so bumpy that the longest;bad." putt he holed in 72 holes was a 12 footer. Three shots in his wake came big John Barnum, the six foot, five inch giant from Grand Rapids, Mich., with a closing 69 for 282. The only other par busters were Dutch Harrison, the old Arkansas Traveler shooting a 74 for 285 and Leland (Duke) Gibson with a 77 for 287. Jim Turnesa, in fifth place, wound up with a 73 for even par 288. 'I just couldn't sink a long putt," Snead moaned even in victory, "I never putted route he fired 53 pars, 11 bu\. ies and two eagles against a mere six bogeys. In his most halcyon times he never polished 'em off much better than that. Old Sam refused to play in the Seniors last year. Feeling at a mere 50 that it was an "old man's" tournament. But at 51 he changed his mind, asserting that he could ride a cart "because of a doctor's prescription."
