Supreme Court Rules PGA Yells Tore!' When Against Curt Flood's Suit Dave Hill Starts to Talk For the third time in SO years, the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to overturn baseballs unique status as the only sport exempt from antitrust laws. The highest court in the land thus threw the matter back at a seemingly disinterested Congress, which has adopted none' of the more than SO bills introduced in the last two decades to change baseball's reserve system which binds a player to one team indefinitely. In a 5-3 ruling Monday against a suit brought by former outfielder Curt Flood, the court's refusal to redefine the reserve clause raised the possibility of another and more massive general strike next spring than the one which delayed the start of the 1972 baseball season for more than a week. "Technically, it is a subject for collective bargaining," said Richard Moss, counsel for the Major League Baseball Players Association. "But practically, it is the subject for a strike, a long strike. You either forget it or strike over it, and both are unfortunate courses." The so-called basic agreement between players and owners expires Dec. 31, along with pension and health Insurance agreements reached after the recent strike in April. The basic agreement covers minimum salary, expenses and many other rules. One baseball executive, asking to remain unidentified, said, "I hope we're intelligent enough—players and management alike—to negotiate this before we're forced to do it." That power rests with Congress. But Justice Harry A. Blackmun, delivering the Supreme Court's majority opinion, noted that Congress has had a long time to do something about it and said the fact that it did nothing indicates more than "mere Congressional silence and passivity." In fact, he said, the Supreme Court "has concluded that Congress has had no intention to subject baseball's reserve system to the reach of the anti- Matt Mills In NIRA Rodeo PORTALES, N.M. -Matt Mills of Pampa is one of the contestants representing Eastern New Mexico University in the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association championships in Bozeman, Mont., this week.

Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn said the decision "opens the way for renewed collective bargaining on the reserve system following the 1972 season." : Exactly what the players want was explained by Milt Pappas, player representative of the Chicago Cubs: "The ruling doesn't make a lot of difference and the players were not looking to make utter chaos, which complete elimination of the reserve clause would do. However, some owners now have an idea how the players feel. "What we are going to seek at the meeting table is an agreement that will give veteran players some freedom in negotiating. After a certain time with a club, say five years or eight years, a player should be able to sit down and negotiate on whether he can get more money if he's worth it, or be free to bargain with another club."

Olympic Trials Boycott Threatened By Women LOS ANGELES (API-Two American record-holders in women's track events said Monday they would boycott their Olympic training camp if the site was r&t moved from Champaign, III. Discus throw or )lga Connolly and long jumper Martha Watson said they wrote a letter to Amateur Athletic Union President Jack Kelly and sent a copy to Nell Jackson, women's Olympic team coach who lives in Champaign, home of the University of Illinois. "We shouldn't have to compete where it's hot, humid and always raining," said Miss Watson. She said her letter was also signed by nine other Olympic qualified girls. Miss Watson, from Long Beach, Calif., made her statement at the meeting of the Southern California Track Writers Association. "There is usually so much wind that people have to hold the high jump cross bars. It seems that Miss Jackson would like to have the camp close by so that she doesn't get docked any pay. I'm going to lose money by going to this camp." SHAVING STROKES by Frank Beard 57-Anti-SHcing Tip Here's another thought that may help the nine out of 10 golfers who slice. Imagine that the ball is marked off into four parts. Now instead of thinking about just hitting the ball, think about hitting the inside back fourth. You might even want to paint that portion of some of your practice balls to help you concentrate on iV. You soon will be swinging on a more inside-out path that will straighten out your slice.

By FRANK LINDY DENVER, Colo.—(NBA)— "Most guys playing the pro golf tour," says Dave Hill in no uncertain tones, "seem to be afraid to voice an opinion about anything." That has never been said about Hill, his sport's most outspoken individualist. Me has strong opinions about virtually everything and will express them at the drop of a tee. He has been fined for his remarks, and last year sued the Professional Golfers' Ass o c i a t i o n and its Tournament Players Division for, among other things, "violating his constitutional right to free speech." (The suit was settled out of court with neither side publicly proclaiming victory.) "I don't see why athletes cannot have the freedom to say what they think," Hill says. "Especially in a sport like golf where I'm my own boss and have to foot all my own bills. "I keep hearing that I'm controversial, but I don't go around looking for trouble. Most of the things I've said that got a lot of attention were in response to reporters' questions. I've never ducked a question and I don't plan to start now. "I suppose the writers come to me because they know most of the other players aren't going to say anything. There are more than a few guys on the tour who arc glad when I speak up, because then they don't have to." A couple of Hill's more notorious remarks were directed at a U.S. Open site and British galleries, respectively. His views probably were concurred with by most of his fellow players but they remained quieter. When asked what was lacking at the 1970 U.S. Open site, the II a z e 11 i n e course in Minnesota, Hill cracked: "Just 80 acres of corn and a few cows." The nation's headline writers went wild. After an unhappy experience with a customarily patriotic British golf crowd, Hill was asked if he would return to Great Britain. "Only," he replied, "if I die and my casket is shipped here by mistake." Lost in translation, unfortunately, was Hill's puckish sense of humor. He intended both remarks as much in fun as anything else. "Nowadays everybody takes golf so deathly seriously," he says. "It's strictly business with guys like Frank Beard. They're always complaining how much work it is. This game wasn't meant to be played so seriously. It's for fun—it's not a religion. "I get as fed up with it as anybody else who does something to excess. I can get to where I hate tournament golf, but I still love to come home to Denver and play with hacker friends. It's still only a game, you know." Because he gets so tense if he plays the tour for long stretches, Hill is cutting down his schedule. He has played in only about half the tournaments and has come back from a slump by winning one title and earning more than $65,000 already. "In the past I've stayed out here and beaten my head against the wall and lost 35 pounds in a year," says Hill, who weighs only 155 top weight with a couple of clubs under his arm. "It isn't worth it. Now I gel away and forget about it and relax. I pick my spots," On the course—not when he thinks something needs saying. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)
