SPORTS If Garvey Named MVP in 7-2 NL Victory By The Associated Press PITTSBURGH (AP) - For some it was a busman's holiday. For a busman's son, it was a dream come true. "The seeds were planted when I was four, five and six," said Steve Garvey of the Los Angeles Dodgers, named the Most Valuable Player in Tuesday night's All-Star Game after leading the National League to a 7-2 victory over the American League. "My father drove the team bus for the Dodgers in spring training and I got to know them all — Gil Hodges, Carl Furillo, Roy Campanella, Don Drysdale and Sandy Kouf ax. "They all were All-Stars and I always hoped that someday I'd be one. Gil Hodges was my idol and here I was playing his position in the All-Star Game." Garvey's name didn't even appear on the computer ballot for this 45th All-Star Game, but the nation's fans responded with more than one million write-in votes to make him the starting first baseman. Garvey responded to that by delivering two key hits and a sparkling defensive play during a full nine-inning stint as the National League continued its dominance over the American, winning its llth game in the past 12. The NL now leads the series 20-10 after being behind 12-4. Five NL pitchers held the American to four hits, causing losing Manager Dick Williams to lament: "You can't do much with four hits." Gaylord Perry, starting pitcher for the AL, retired the first five NL batters before Garvey singled in the second. Dodgers teammate Ron Cey then drove in Garvey with a double. In the third inning Garvey made a brilliant backhand stab of Bobby Murcer's hot grounder to end the inning. The. AL already had two runs in that inning and two runners on base. In the fourth, with the Americans leading 2-1, Johnny Bench and Jimmy Wynn, another Dodger, singled. Garvey doubled in one run and Wynn later scored onCey'sgroundout. And although it was not obvious then, Garvey, playing despite an ear infection, had done in the American League. Joe Garvey, who drives a bus in Tampa, Fla., and his wife were among the standing room only crowd of 50,706 at Three Rivers Stadium to see their son. Asked if he contributed any write-in ballots, the elder Garvey beamed: "I'd say the family contributed a couple of hundred. We weren't going to come here. Instead we were going to Atlanta next weekend so we could see three games. But I told my wife that we only live once, let's go." It was one of the best trips the Garveys ever took. In the AL dressing room Williams said: "With a group like that — Cey, Garvey, Wynn and Mike Marshall — that's probably why the Dodgers are where they are." Marshall pitched the last two innings, after strong performances by Messersmith, Ken Brett, Jon Carroll Daily Times Herald Section B Wednesday, July 24, 1974 Page 13 Matlack, and Lynn McGlothen. Brett, the only Pittsburgh Pirate on the squad, was credited with the victory after working the fourth and fifth innings. Luis Tiant, who allowed two runs in the fourth inning, took the loss. The Nationals added an unearned run in the fifth on Joe Morgan's sacrifice fly, scoring Lou Brock who had singled, stolen second and moved to third on catcher Thurman Munson's error. Reggie Smith homered in the seventh to make it 5-2 off Jim Hunter, and Don Kessinger's triple in the eighth was the key blow as the NL made it 7-2. The AL scored twice in the> third inning with Dick Allen driving in one run with a single. The Chicago White Sox first baseman arrived less than 45 minutes before game time. "The game starts at 8:30. And game time is on time," said Allen, who has a history of absences and tardiness and left here after 2Ms innings. So Allen put in little over an hour's work — apparently hating every minute of it. But Steve Garvey, the busman's son who always dreamed of his day in the limelight, was having the time of his life. Cancel the Season, Halas Suggests By The Associated Press With the National Football League players' strike entering its 24th day today and the prospect of resuming negotiations between players and management still dim, it's time now, it seems, to begin wondering, "What if?" Chicago Bears owner George Halas threw in perhaps the biggest "if" Tuesday. He said he would rather cancel the entire NFL season than allow the NFL Players Association to eliminate the so-called Rozelle rule. The Rozelle rule, which involves compensation decided by Commissioner Pete Rozelle for teams losing a player, is one of the "freedom demands" blamed for a current impasse in negotiations. Negotiations between the NFL Management Council and NFL Players Association broke off Monday, and no future sessions have been scheduled by federal mediator James Scearce. "It's impossible to give in on freedom of choice," Halas said in a telephone interview, "It's the backbone of the NFL." The 79-year-old Halas, a founder of the NFL, said he had not decided to cancel the Bears' season, but he said it was now up to the players to offer a counterproposal. "It would be tough to call off the season, but it would have to be done to save the league," Halas said. "Halas' is a very typical sentiment," said Terry Bledsoe, a spokesman for the NFLMC, who said there now are 123 veterans in NFL camps, after the arrival Tuesday of veterans Jim'Otto, Fred Biletnikoff and Jim Warren in the Oakland Raiders' camp. Another NFLMC official, chief counsel Theodore Kheel, was pessimistic about progress in resolving the strike and also disputed a players' contention that they had backed off some of their demands. - Meanwhile in Washington, Edward Bennett Williams, president of the Redskins, said he would field a team for all scheduled games, both pre- and regular-season. In Canton, Ohio, the public relations director for the Hall of Fame, Donald Smith, reiterated that the shrine's Hall of Fame benefit contest Saturday "still is on." It is scheduled for 4 p.m., EOT, Saturday at Fawcett Stadium between the St. Louis Cardinals and Buffalo Bills, and will be nationally televised by ABC with an expected 18,000 in the stands and 22 rookies, free agents and a few veterans on the field. In the training camps, preparations continued for other pre-season contests. The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers have a game-type scrimmage scheduled for Thursday, and NFLPA pickets say they will be there. No veterans have reported to the Bears' camp. In Hiram, Ohio, four more Cleveland Browns veterans checked into camp, raising the number of veterans in camp to eight. The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles each gained another veteran in camp Tuesday. At Wilmington, Ohio, the Cincinnati Bengals worked out with 18 veterans in camp, and cornerback Bob Jones, a second-year man, said he felt there will be some disharmony among players when strikers return to the team. IT'S NOT FLOWING TEL AVIV (AP) - "A land flowing with milk and honey" is how Israelis sometimes refer to their biblical home. But the price of milk has gone up more than 50 per cent in the past six months — to 25 cents a quart — and Israeli grocers report a shortage of honey.

Pick your size-the price is right 2 Could Reclaim Celtics LOS ANGELES (AP) Two businessmen could reclaim the Boston Celtics under terms of a federal court jury decision in a breach of contract suit over sale of the National Basketball Association team to its present owner. The jury awarded $4.2 million to Harold Lipton and Irving Levine, deciding that Celtics owner Robert J. Schmertz broke an oral agreement made when he purchased the team from them in May 1972. Lipton, an attorney, and Levine, a business consultant, bought the Celtics in April 1972 for $3.7 million but were forced to sell the club when the NBA Board of Governors refused to approve the purchase. The league said ownership was rejected over possible conflicts of interest because the Beverly Hills businessmen were both on the National General Corp. board of directors with Sam Schulman, owner of the Seattle SuperSonics. The sale to Schmertz, who also owns the World Hockey Association New England Whalers, was for the same amount Levine and Lipton paid for the club, but included an oral agreement for an additional $250,000 payment and an option allowing the two businessmen to repurchase half of the Celtics'stock. The suit by Lipton and Levine contended they never received the $250,000 and Schmertz refused to honor the repurchase agreement. The jury verdict Monday in the court of U.S. District Court Judge Manuel Real came after an eight-day trial gave Lipton and Levine $3.42 million in compensatory damages, $500,000 in punitive damages and the $250,000 plus interest. But attorney Frank Rothman, who represented the two, said Tuesday that because the jury decided fraud was involved in the breach of contract, Lipton and Levine now have the option to break the original contract with Schmertz and reclaim the Celtics.

WHITEWALLS SLIGHTLY HIGHER GOOD/YEAR WAYS TO CHARGE • Our Own Customer Credit Plan • Master Charge • BankAmericard • American Express Money Card • Carte Blanche PAUL & WAYNE SKELLY SERVICE East Hwy. 30 - Carroll CASH WITHOUT A CATCH WASHINGTON (AP) - It won't be long before Americans can get cash from their banks any time they want — and not be arrested. Today there are more than 1,500 automated tellers located throughout the United States that allow customers to perform 90 per cent of all their banking business around-the-clock without ever stopping inside a bank, the American Bankers Assn. reports. These tellers are the evolutionary link between the paper-based (cash and check) banking of today and the electronic banking of tomorrow. Some seven million Americans already hold the magnetically encoded "money cards" that activate these robot tellers which can supplement or even replace branch banks.

Possible Boycott— A coalition of civil rights groups has warned baseball officials of a possible boycott by black fans if major league baseball can't come up with a black manager. "Our boys can play baseball on the field, but when it comes to the managing jobs a few white men play musical chairs with the jobs," said Robert L. Pitts, spokesman for a group of pickets, on Tuesday. "If blacks have all that talent on the field, chances are there is some managing talent there, too,"hesaid. Canadian Golf- Arnold Palmer returns to the scene of his first victory — now almost 20 years ago — and Tom Weiskopf returns to the site of his last triumph, in this week's $200,000 Canadian Open Golf Tournament at Port Credit, Qnt.

In the next eight weeks, more than $1.8 million in prize money will be at stake, and the big guns of the game, many of whom haven't played in the United States since the American Open, are moving back into action for a shot at the big money events.
