The ballots, cast by some 300 members of the Baseball Writers Assn. of America, have been under lock 'and key in Commissioner Ford: Prick's office.

Rules of the election require that a player's name be on 75 per cent of the ballots.

Why they stayed behind i» * small part of the profound migration mystery which has for 15 years haunted Dr. William Rowan, head of the University ol Alberta's zoology department. Lesi Discomfort Dr. Rowan, a. leading Canadian wildlife expert, said yesterday that the wayward fowl suffers less discomfort — even in 60-below-zero weather — than the weather-wise woodsman. Providing the ducks can find open water and food, they have as good a "deal" on the prairie as elsewhere. Dr. Rowan said this odd behavior appears to have some connection with the presence of "abnormal plumage,' the birds having failed to molt. Late arrival of the winter confused the migration schedules. Many ducks often remain until late in the year, Rowan noted, but relatively few hardy specimens elect to sit out the entire winter. Rocky Marciano's title. Dempsey, visiting hospitalized vets at the nearby Great Lakes Naval Training Center, said that 'ormer champion Emard Charles, while appearing a worthy con- ender, still should dispose of Nino Vsldes for the right to fight Marciano.
