Motional Owners Talk Expansion By JERRY LISKA Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) - National League baseball club owners will meet Friday apparently intent on selecting two new franchises and deciding whether to play catch-up with the American League on the start of a 12- club circuit. The American League last fall approved expansion to 12 clubs in 1969, reviving a Kansas City franchise to compensate for the A's switch to Oakland this season and adding Seattle as a second new member. Warren Giles, National ,, League president, earlier this week said the meeting was aimed only at setting down ground rules to five cities seeking the two new franchises for operation not later than 1970. But one NL club executive said "there could be some definite action because time is getting short." The franchise applicants include Dallas-Fort Worth, San Diego, Milwaukee, Montreal and Buffalo.

It includes six world record holders plus Billy Mills, 1964 Olympic 10,000 meter champion. The 12 in danger are for the meet's 27 established events. This doesn't include open events set up for Randy Matson, world's best in the shot put at 71-5V 2 ; 28-year-old Ralph Boston, still co-holder of the world long jump mark at 27-4%; and world record sprinters Jim Hines and Charlie Greene in a special 100-meter dash. Jim Ryun of Kansas, the world's best middle distance runner, has a good chance at meet mark of 3:46.9 in the Glenn Cunningham 1,500 meters—equivalent to a 4:03 mile — even though he'll be running within limits to avoid re-injury to his leg. Mills will be running the 5,000 mpters this timo, where he might get the meet mark of 14:19.2. Hurdler George Byers Kansas is the other world record holder, in the indoor lows. The only major event today will be the Julius Marks 10,000 meter run, where the meet mark of 29:49 could fall to Pat McMahon of Oklahoma Baptist or Lt. Jim Murphy of the Air Force.
