, ALL rttttft, torn., April a, im WCW HottlS for Bills? .By KEARNEY EGERTON ; "And I say I am the most loyal Phoenix Giants fan — after all, who else has Charlie Fox's portrait on his cufflinks?" San Diego signs Hadl SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) Quarterback John Hadl ended his holdout siege with the San Diego Chargers yesterday /signing a 1969 contract with undisclosed terms. Hadl, 29, a seven-year American Football League veteran, signed his contract with one month before he .would have been a free agent under the option clause. He played in 1968 without a contract. He reportedly sought a three-year contract in the $50,000-$60,000 range and a $250,000 loan for investment purposes. The Charger management had said it would .hot grant such a loan. ' "The club and John are very well pleased with the Contract and everything is behind us," said Sid Gillman, Charger general manager and coach. "We can now start concentrating on football." Hadl had been quoted in recent weeks as saying he intended to play out his option, and he thought he had done So at midnight Monday SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Times quoted Ralph Wilson yesterday as saying he was "a little pessimistic" about the prospects for a new home in Buffalo, N.Y., for his American Football League team. "My lease is up this fall," Wilson said in a telephone interview from his home in Miami, Fla. "If something isn't done in Buffalo I'm going to make a determination by next fall." The newspaper considered the comment an indication Wilson may move the Buffalo Bills to Seattle, where he has inspected the University of Washington Stadium as a possible interim facility while a new $45 million domed stadium is being built. The Bills have been playing in the 44,000-seat War Memorial Stadium at Buffalo. A $50 million bond issue was passed last year to build a new stadium. But the Times article said, Buffalo failed to land a major league baseball franchise an dthere is doubt that Erie County "wants to build a stadium strictly for football." Listoii hurt, cancels bout Sonny Listen yesterday informed fight officials here that that he has been forced to cancel his scheduled Tuesday bout with Dave Bailey due to an injury. The former world heavyweight champion said he hurt his arm in his 10- round win over Billy Joiner last week. Liston wired matchmaker Paavo Ketonen of his decision to forego the fight with Bailey and Ketonen said he would line up two 10-round fights to take the place of the main event—one of the 10-rounders pitting Tucson's Arnie Cota- Robles against Charlie Shipes of Los Angeles.

PETERSBURG, Fla. — The St. Louis Cardinals traded inflelders Jerry Buchek and Jim Hutto to the Philadelphia Phillies yesterday for first baseman Bill White. It's the second time the Cards have traded for the 35-year-old White and the second time they've traded away Buchek. White came to the Cardinals from the San Francisco Giants in 1959 along with Ray Jablonski for pitchers Sam Jones and Don Chotte. White a lefthanded hitter, who will be used primarily as a pinchitter, had his best years with the Cardinals. He hit over .300 and drove in over 100 tuns between 1962 and 1964. He was traded to Philadelphia in 1965 with catcher Bob Uecker and shortstop Dick Groat for pitcher Art Mahaffey, outfielder Alex Johnson and catcher Pat Corrales. White hit .239 and drove in 40 runs in 127 games with the Phillies last year. Buchek, once the Cardinals' regular shortstop, was first traded to the New York Mets in 1967 for utility infielder Ed Bressoud. Buchek, 27, hit .182 in 73 games with the Mets last year. He was reaequired by the Cardinals' Tulsa farm club from the Mets' Jacksonville farm last winter for pitcher Jim Cosman. Hutton, 21, is a catcher whom the Cards were trying to convert into a third baseman. He hit .256 and drove in 44 runs for Tulsa last year. Both Buchek and Hutton will be assigned to the Phillies' Eugene, Ore., farm club. RCA Widen* The Gap!!! See Your Dealer Today and Kind Out How!! AVAILABLE NOW!
