Mi Her Cferrqes Confracf OSe-$Tcfe<^ Pro Grid Players use-Trapped by Dictatorial Policies of Clubs By WHITNEY SHOEMAKER WASHINGTON to - Creighton Miller, the ex-Notre Dame back, told Congress today that pro football players have been mouse- trapped by what he called dictatorial policies of National Football League (NFL) club owners. Miller, appearing as attorney for the NFL Players Assn., said in testimony prepared for the House Antitrust subcommittee that pres­ ent practices invite such things as blacklisting and mistreatment of injured players. Legal Monstrosity He called the NFL player contract a "legal monstrosity" which is one-sided in favor of the owners. He termed pro football's player draft a medieval system that "violates the basic concepts of American employment tradition." And he said the newly formed players* association'— a short of football union—may go to the National Labor Relations Board to gain bargaining recognition denied by NFL owners. Can't Obtain Audience "To date," Miller said, "we have been unsuccessful in even obtaining an audience with them to discuss our difficulties." Miller said he was authorized to represent moro than 90 per cent of NFL players. The association reportedly includes members' from all 12 league teams except the Chicago Bears. Miller testified as the subcommittee headed by Rep. Celler (D- NY) opened the second half of its football inquiry. The group is checking into all professional team sports to determine if any legislation is needed to correct an Times Herald, Carroll, lows Wednesday, July SI, 1957 apparent inconsistency created by Supreme Court decisions. Subject to Antitrust The court has held football subject to federal antitrust laws but baseball exempt. Miller said he favored bills that would cover commercial features but exempt-playing rules, league organization, territorial rights and employment of players. Complete antitrust immunity, he said, "would sanction restrictions, broadcasting and telecasting agreements, the exclusion of new franchises, the blacklisting of players who refused to comply with the clubs' own agreements and any future .restraints of trade that football might establish." Monopoly Miller suggested pro football Is a monopoly and that its contract reserve clause illegally restrains trade. But he. proposed a limited exemption- for the clause, which gives each team a year-to : year option on its players. Eliminating the reserve provision, he said, "might act as a cure that killed tht patient" by enabling rich clubs to grab oft all the best players. At the same time Miller Insist* ed that any exomptlon be accom-' panied by recognition of the play.'- ers association and legislation to • provide additional protection,; Players then would be able to ar» bitrate with the owners, he said, and together wipe out what ha called abuses of the clause. Northey's Poke Keeps Phils Even With Bums By ED WILKS The Associated Press Ron Northey, too slow for the American League's "go-go*' Chicago White Sox, is "back home", again just doing what comes naturally to keep the Philadelphia Phillies on the move in the National League race. The husky, balding. 37-year-old slugger, in a Phillies uniform for the first time in 10 years, walloped a game-winning two-run homer in Tuesday night's 8-5 victory over Cincinnati—coming up in a pinch-hit rolo only hours after being picked up from the White Sox on waivers. Northey's shot, his first home run of the year, hoisted the Phils within one percentage point of third-place Brooklyn and kept Philadelphia within 2% games of first-place Milwaukee. Lead Shared The Braves defeated Pittsburgh 5-2 but saw their lead' shaved to a mere two percentage points over St. Louis as the Cardinals socked the New York Giants 7-3 on Joe Cunningham's pinch-hit grand-slam homer In the ninth. The Dodgers split a pair with the Chicago -Cubs, losing 4-3 after a 1-0 victory to fall 2% games behind. Sox Keep Pace In the American League, where ELKS DINNER 7«00 P.M. THURSDAY For Elks Only the first-place New York Yankees have been forced to fight for their "run-away," DicK Donovan tossed a three-hitter'to beat Washington 7-1 and keep the second-place White Sox within three games of the top. The Yankees whipped Kansas City 10-4. Boston smacked Detroit 4-0 on the four-singles pitching of veteran Bob _Porterfield, and Cleveland replaced the Tigers in fourth place with a 6-0 decision over Baltimore behind the three-hit pitching of Johnny Gray, back in the majors for the first time since 1955. Three-Run Rally Northey c a pp e d a three-run eighth inning for the Phils with his sock off losing reliever Hersh Freeman. Stan Lopata had opened the rally with a homer off starter Joe Nuxhall after the Redlegs had fashioned a 5-3 lead on homers by Frank Robinson, Smoky Bur gess and Don Hoak. Bob Miller won it in relief. Lew Burdette tossed a five-hitter for the Braves. The veteran right-hander gave up a home run and sacrifice fly to Gene Freese while the Braves scored three un earned runs to hand Art Swanson the defe?t. Overcome Deficit The Cards, junking a 3-0 Giant lead for their fourth in a row loaded the bases on walks to Don Blasingame, Stan Musial and Wal ly Moon ahead of Cunningham's payoff smack off Ruben Gomez, now 11-9. Blasingame, 3-for-4, drove In run and scored the tying marker after Moon, hitting in his 16th consecutive game, had paired doubles with Del Ennis for the first St. RUB OF THE GREEN . . . Third basemen make spilt decisions • just like umpires. Jerry Coleman of the home club has no play on a swift runner, so waits until a topped grounder rolls foul at Yankee Stadium. After all, what can Jerry lose? Louis run. Larry Jackson won his 12th in relief. An eighth-inning homer by Bob Speake did it for the Cubs, although Dave Hillman needed relief help to win it after Sandy Amoros homered in the ninth. Don Newcombe lost it for a 9-9 mark.

Jackie Jensen batted in three Sox runs with his 14th homer and a single as Frank Lary lost his 14th. Ted Williams went 3-for-4 to push his league-leading bat average to .384 Gray, a 29-year-old right-hander recalled from San Diego Sunday, hadn't worked a big league game since starting five with the A's two years ago. He nursed a 1-0 lead with a one hitter for eight innings. The Tribe then scored five in the ninth as Billy Loes lost his sixth. Yogi Berra, again wearing specs shook a slump with his 17th home run and three singles for four runs batted in, Whifcey Ford won his sixth with a 13-hitter that was good enough for his first complete game since opening day. New-Look Carroll Meets Churdan Don Burgess Seeks Vital Win Tonight Carroll's battling new-look Merchants, striving to overcome a two-game deficit, will entertain fourth - place Churdan here Wednesday night. % Big Don Burgess is slated for mound duty as the Merchants find themselves faced with the necessity of winning to stay alive in the pennant fight. With six games left on the calendar, Carroll cannot afford to drop many more games. Audubon in Third While Churdan is at Carroll, third-place Audubon will entertain front-running Coon Rapids. Now that lefty Carroll Scott has rounded into one of the loop's leading hurlers, the league leaders might find themselves confronted with an exceedingly difficult task . in downing the Cardinals.

That would put Ronnie Rested on third base and Bob Simpson in right field with the rest of the lineup the same as it has been throughout the season. Gayle Swansen is the probable starting hurler for Churdan as the Indies battle to get back into the first division. When Coon Rapids journeys to Audubon, Elmer Prescott probably, will get" the pitching assignment for the league leaders. Only one of the rain-out dates has been rescheduled* to date, secretary Mark Ahmann reports and that is a make-up between Breda, and Audubon at Audubon on Friday night. REMINDER: Thursday evening looms as the most important date on the calendar in the Carroll County Parochial League. That's the time set for the big play-off game to decide the league championship. Defending champion Halbur will play early front-runner Arcadia at Merchants Park in Carroll at 5:30 p.m. Thursday. The game will precede a regularly scheduled high school game between Kuemper and Boone. The winner of the Parochial League play-off game will be the host team when all-stars from the other league clubs assemble to do battle with the champion on Sunday. * * • HONOR LEAHY: Bob Leahy day will be observed in Denison next Thursday in honor of the golfing star. The Denison school teacher will be honored with ceremonies at a banquet for his feat of winning the Iowa' In awhile. Amateur and Iowa Masters crowns this year. Leahy also will get a lifetime membership in the Denison Country.Club. * • * ATHLETICS: The Kansas City Athletics are either tired of taking-Yankee castoffs and thereby leaving themselves open to the charge of being Casey Stengel's number one farm team, or they have decided to start from the absolute bottom on a farm system that may produce more stars to be traded away. In any event, they have lured another .youth into the all-rookie league in Nebraska. Latest addition to the roster is Roger Aceto, Drake University football regular who will pass up his final year of competition at Drake to play with Grand Island of the Nebraska State League. By the time he makes the big show, the Athletics may even find a way to beat the Yankees once Champion to Go All Out Against Pete Rademacher CHIEF 'V"\ PAINTS Kid Gavilan Is Underdog MIAMI BEACH, Fla. t* - Tonight's nationally televised fight could be billed as a battle between two former child prodigies — Kid Gavilan of Cuba and Gasper (Indian) Ortega of Mexico. Gavilan, now 31, claims he started fighting as an amateur at 11 and turned professional when he was 16. He has had 137 bouts, losing only 27. Ortega, born in Mexicall Oct. 21, 1926, says he quit a bull-fighting career at 15 to turn ring fighter. He has won 40 of 49 professional fights and will be a slight favorite over the former champion. Bad Luck Gavilan had bad luck In each of his other two appearances in the auditorium. He decisioned Johnny Cunningham in 1954 but injured his right hand and blamed this for his loss to Bobo Olson in Chicago six weeks later. A year later Gavilan lost a close decision to Hector Constance and blew his top in the dressing room afterward. The Miami Beach Boxing Commission hit him with a fine for those remarks. Lost Decision In Ortega's only local appearance, he lost a split decision to unranked Larry Baker four weeks ago tonight. Ortega has twice defeated former welter champion Tony DeMarco and claims victories over such fighters as Gene Poirier and Isaac Logart. , MOVING Local ond Notion Widt Storage •> Cretins/— Peckine Ph.

By MURRAY ROSE NEW YORK W — Heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson says the hospitalization of Tommy (Hurricane) Jackson won't deter him from going all out against Olympic king Pete Rademacher in their Aug. 22 title bout in Seattle. Jackson, floored three times and dealt a fearful beating by Patterson at the Polo Grounds Monday night, was reported "resting comfortably" today at Meadowbrook Hospital at East Meadows, N.Y. He went to the hospital five hours after he was stopped in the 10th round of the title fight. Confined for Observation Physicians said Jackson had suffered a bruised kidney as a result of the beating and recommended that he be confined to the hospital for several days for further observation. Patterson visited him at the hospital early Tuesday. Asked if he feared he might injure the professionally unproven Olympic heavyweight champion of 1956, Patterson replied: "No. I would have to regard htm like I did Jackson and other strong opponents. He's a big, strong fellow, I hear. He's been boxing 10 years and anyone who wins an Olympic title has to be good to beat the world's best amateurs. I'm going to be fully prepared." Patterson, who^won the Olympic 165-pound crown at 17 in 1*52, said he will resume training at Greenwood Lake, N.Y., Thursday, TODAY'S BASEBALL By The Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE W L. PCT G.B.

Only game* scheduled • Former Football Player Rademacher, a 6-1%, 212-pound former football lineman from Washington State and Grandview, Wash., captured the Olympic title at Melbourne with three straight knockouts. He is slow moving but can toss punches fast. Amateur fights usually are for three-rounds only, however. Asked if he thought Rademacher was a fit opponent, Patterson said, "I'll fight anyone my manager matches me with. He does the matchmaking. I do the fighting." Patterson has been guaranteed $250,000 for the fight and his manager, Cus D'Amato, said that Rademacher's backers also have put an additional $100,000 in escrow to guarantee a return bout should Pete win the title. No Television D'Amato said the Rademacher fight won't be televised. "And further," added D'Amato, "the heavyweight champion's fights will not be available for home television until one of the weekly network television fights shows is operated by an independent promoter." '# D'Amato, feuding with the Inter*national Boxing Club which promotes the weekly Wednesday and Friday night TV fight programs, said competition would enable fighters to get more money. The white-haired manager then announced that he and Patterson had- waived part of their, $175,000 guarantee for the Jackson fight and were returning $51,140 to independent promoter Emil Lence, who staged the Monday scrap. Gardner Is Star Player After Trade j By GORDON BEARD BALTIMORE w - Two years ago^ while riding the bench with, the New York Giants, Billy Gardner tried to buy up his contract to make himself a free agent. The Giants turned down the offer but in 1956 dealt Gardner off to the Baltimore Orioles, where he has become a solid starter while hitting and fielding better than he ever did in the major leagues. Typifies Scrappers Gardner typifies the scrappy Birds, who refuse to play dead for the American League leaders despite their sixth-place position. "Aggressive." is the word Manager Paul Richards uses to describe the 30-year-old second baseman who leads the league in doubles with 25 and is tied for fifth in hits with 112. Good Base Runners "Billy's batting average has Increased because he's laying off bad pitches this year," Richards said. "He also has improved greatly in the field and is developing into a good base runner." Then in the typical don't-go- overboard Richards manner, the manager added: "He could be one player." Baltimore fans and Billy's teammates thing he's already reached that stage. In addition to leading the Orioles in hits and doubles, Gardner also leads in total bases (153) and stands third in runs batted in (33) although batting in the leadoff spot in all but one game. He's hitting .272. In the field, Gardner shows a .992 average with just four errors in 521 chances at second base, Nellie Fox of Chicago (1954) and Bobby Doerr of Boston (1943) hold the league record for committing the fewest errors—nine-^« at that position during a season. Cohn and Cahill In Second Round CHICAGO (B — Iowans Andrea (Andy) Cohn of Waterloo, and Linda Cahill of Keokuk, faced each other Wednesday in the second round of the Women's West* ern Golf Assn. Junior tournament at suburban Barrington Hills. They were paired against each other after winning their first round matches Tuesday. Miss Cohn, the Iowa Junior champion, defeated Leda Mathews of Portsmouth, Ohio, 3 and 2. Miss Cahill was * extended to the 19th hole in the longest match of the day before she ousted Karen Schull of Kansas City, oite-up. Bill Sharman led the Boston Celtics in scoring during the National Basketball Assn. 1956-57 season by scoring 1,414 points in 67 games. Done Take It for Granted!
