» - \ VI Durocher signed Miller criticizes Kuhn to new contract CHICAGO (AP) - Leo Durocher. still colorful and controversial at 64, was given a vote of confidence by owner Phil Wrigley yesterday in the form of a 1971 contract to continue managing the Chicago Cubs. Terms were not disclosed. At the same time, Durocher hired an old buddy and one of his former New York Giant coaches. Herman Franks, ex- San Francisco Giant manager, as a Cub coach. Franks replaces Joe Becker, who collapsed with heart trouble at Wrigley iFeld Wednesday. "Yes, you could say this was a vote of confidence," Wrigley told The Associated Press. "I think Leo has done an excellent job." Durocher, after a 10-year managerial hiatus, was hired by Wrigley to take over the down-trodden Cubs in 1966. Leo's first season under a three-year contract found the Cubs finishing 10th and last in the National League. But in 1967, Durocher perked the Bruins to a first divisipn finish for the first time in 20 years, taking third. That year, Leo's contract was extended through 1969 and in January, 1969, Wrigley signed Durocher through 1970. As ever, Leo was not at loss for words, asserting: "It's great to be invited back by Mr. Wrigley and Trio lapped by PPBA Three Valley high school journalists have been awarded $1,000 college scholarships by the Phoenix Press Box Association. The trio are Nancy Louk of Alhambra, who will attend University of Arizona, and Robert Snider of Saguaro and Nancy A. Houle of St. Mary's. Snider and Miss Houle will attend Arizona State. All three have served as editors of their school newspapers. "Since the beginning of the program in 1947, the association has awarded more than $50,000 in college scholarships to area high school students who have pursued college degrees in mass communications," said PPBA president Wally Dwyer. John Holland, general manager. Simply marvelous. This is some kind of organization. "To me contracts don't mean anything. People want you or they don't want you. I've worked for some great organizations. I never worked for a bad one. It's just that soiae are better than others and this happens to be a great one." Asked if, reaching the working man's normal retirement . age of 65, he might quit after next season, Leo snapped: "Retirement? I've given that subject no consideration." Durocher said he was elated to hire Franks, dismissed as San Francisco manager after the 1968 season and since directing his private business interests in Salt Lake Citv. Glotzbach grabs pole CAMBRIDGE JUNCTION. Mich. (AP) - Charlie Glotzbach of Georgetown, Ind., drove a winged Dodge Charger at 157.363 miles per hour to win the pole for Sunday's Yankee 400 stock car race. The 34-y e a r -o 1 d veteran driver topped 29 other drivers who earned starting positions in the 40-car field that will run for just under $80,000 in prize money. Bobby Isaac, driving a Dodge similar to Glotzbach's, was the second best qualifier at 156.294 m.p.h. good for the other front row spot in the starting order. The second row berths went to Richard Petty in a Plymouth at 155.837 and Lee Roy Yarbrough in a Mercury at 155.635. Associated Press NEW YORK - Marvin Miller, executive director of baseball's players association, criticized Commissioner Bowie Kuhn and other officials yesterday for suggesting negotiations to modify the controversial reserve system when a contractual ban currently prohibits such talks. "Speeches are one thing,'' said Miller, "a concrete coming forward is another. We cannot require the owners to negotiate. They can, however, voluntarily waive the contractual bar that exists. But it has to come from them, and it hasn't." Miller's criticism of Kuhn and other baseball officials was made in light of their remarks following Wednesday's decision by Federal Court Judge Irving Ben Cooper upholding the legality of the sport's reserve system in the Curt Flood case. Taking note of Judge Cooper's suggestion that any change in the set of rules that binds a player to the club that signs him until he is traded, sold or released should be made through player - owner negotiations, Kuhn commented: "I have consistently maintained that the clubs and players can bargain out solu- tion to any problems that arise. I share Judge Cooper's conclusion that any changes necessary in the reserve system can be achieved by bargaining." Miller pointed out that had been the players' position for the past three years, but at the time the last basic agreement was siped in May a contractual provision was included prohibiting such talks. "At tbe time we signed the basic agreement they — the owners — said they didn't want to negotiate on the issue while there was a case pending." Miller said. "So there is a contractual provision that they cannot be required to negotiate while a case is pending." Miller said he had not heard from Flood, reportedly in Copenhagen, but that it was likely an appeal to Judge Cooper's decision in the antitrust suit brought by the former St. Louis outfielder would be filed next week. Flood filed suit when traded to Philadlephia last year. Frank Gianelli is on vacation. His column will re- some upon his return.
