Just Doesn't Like Bowie> That's All By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Editor MILWAUKEE (UPI) - Better 10 friends than one enemy. If Bowie Kuhn never knew that before, he does now. Wittingly or not, he made an unforgiving enemy of Charlie Finley and there's a good chance now that will cost him the baseball commissionership. , Charlie Finley never was a big Bowie Kuhn booster to begin with, and Kuhn only succeeded in alienating the Oakland A's owner more and more by some of the actions he took against him the past few years. Remember how Bowie Kuhn interceded in behalf of Vida Blue when Finley was having trouble signing him a couple of years ago? Charlie Finley remembers. Then there was the famous Mike Andrews affair, and the action Kuhn took against Finley when he turned on the lights during a world series game in Oakland. Kuhn imposed fines on Finley both times and Finley remembers that, too. It was never any secret. Charlie Finley simply didn't think Bowie Kuhn was a good commissioner and he felt Kuhn had jumped on every possible opportunity to •embarrass him. Charlie believes in an eye for an eye. If Bowie Kuhn was going to embarrass him, he'd do what he could to embarrass Bowie Kuhn. The perfect example was last fall after the A's beat the Dodgers in the world series. Finley felt he had the perfect chance to get back at Kuhn for some of the indignities he believed Kuhn had inflicted upon him. Traditionally, the commissioner presents the championship trophy to the owner of the winning world series team and in last year's case that would have been Charlie Finley. A call was made to Finley asking him whether he would come down to accept the trophy from Kuhn and his booming angry answer was - no, no, a thousand times no - not from someone like Bowie Kuhn. Then Charlie came up with art idea. He would have his clubhouse custo- ,dian accept the trophy from Kuhn so the whole world could see what he thought of the commissioner on TV. Somewhere along the line he had a change of heart and, in the end, Sal FAST Rips Rochelle Bando, the A's captain, Joe Rudi and Reggie Ja'ckson made the acceptance. Kuhn was aware Finley purposely had snubbed him, but there wasn't anything he could do about it. What could he do, fine Finley again? Even should the move to fire Kuhn be tabled today, there is the strong likelihood he will simply finish his present term and be let out after the world series or at the winter meetings in Hollywood, Fla., four months from now. That means he will be nothing but a lame dttck; a token commissioner until then. No matter what, you have to score this one for Charlie Finley over Bowie Kuhn and in a way it is ironic that the Yankees were the fourth and final club to swing over to Finley's side in the consolidation against Kuhn. Only a year and a half ago, Charlie and the Yankees had no use for each other whatsoever over the question of Dick Williams' managerial services. The Yankees signing of Catfish Hunter seven months ago didn't endear them any more to the anguished A's owner. Now, though, they are united in a common cause. Politics makes for strange bedfellows. Baseball makes for stranger ones yet. FAST, the Freeport Park District AAU swim team, defeated Rochelle 832-311 Wednesdaay night in dual meet competition here.

Thereupon South leads a spade. West must win and return a diamond, permitting declarer to win a trick with the queen of diamonds. Expert Maneuvers An expert West might discard the jack of diamonds, saving K-7 of diamonds and the ace of spades. If South leads, a diamond, instead of the spade, thinking that the king of diamonds is unguarded, he loses a diamond and a spade.
