Player ,representatives

pag~

By The Associated Press
The major league players repre-
sentatives unanimously turned
down the latest offer from the
owners in the pension dispute yes-
terday and a few regulars decided
to show up in the early training
camps.
Among the reporting players
whose names should be familiar!
to the average baseball fan were
Pat Jarvis, a 16-12 pitcher for
Atlanta, John Bateman and Ron-
nie Brand, two former Houston'
catchers who probably will be one-
two at Montreal, and Bob Bailey,
ex-Los Angeles Dodger who is ex-
pected to be Montreal's first base-
man.
Dick Moss, counsel for the Ma-
jor League 'Baseball Players Asso-
ciation, said yesterday the associ-
ation had been able to reach 22 of
24 player reps and all had declared
themselves in favor of rejecting
the owners' offer of an additional
$1.2 million annually for the pen-,
sion fund. The original offer was
$1 million additional. Under the
old agreement the owners paid
$4.1 million per year.
Moss said the association hoped
to reach the other two player
reps and then would contact John
Gaherin, the owners' representa-
tive in the negotiations, in hopes
of setting up another meeting, per-
haps today.
Pat Jarvis, leading pitcher for
Atlanta last summer; reported for,
spring training with the Braves
yesterday and became the 'irst
regular on the club to defy a
players' strike.
The Braves' pitchers and catch-
ers are scheduled to begin drills
today and club officials said ear-
lier they'expected only rookies and
reserves to show tip.

the staff last summer, also stop-

0 NEW YORK - Jack Kramer counted himself out yesterday
as a possible future czar of tennis and said, "I could never accept
such a post under any circumstances."
"It isn't that my other interests preclude such an assignment, if it
were ever presented, it's just that I don't feel I'm the man for the
job," said the Californian, once the most influential personality in
the game..
P1R0 BASKETBALL:
sdeny- secret dra

By The Associated Press
Lew Alcindor, the 7-foot-2 All-
American of UCLA's national col-
legiate basketball champions, has
been drafted by the New York Nets
of the American Basketball Asso-
ciation and the Milwaukee Bucks
of the National Basketball Asso-
ciation, according to reports issued
late Tuesday night.
But General Manager John
Erickson of the Milwaukee Bucks
of the National Basketball Asso-
clation yesterday labeled the re-
port "absolutely untrue," that the
Bucks had won Lew Alcindor, 7-2
UCLA star, in a secret telephone
draft.
"The report is absolutely untrue
and completely irresponsible,"
Erickson told The Associated
Press.
"I don't know how they can
print such things without check-
ing. We are proceeding exactly
along, the lines -of procedures set
up by NBA rules."
The ,alleged selections were
made in secret telephone drafts
last Saturday by the ABA and a
month ago by the NBA, it was re-
vealed Tuesday night.
The ABA disclosures were made
by the Oakland, Calif.,, Tribune
and the St. Paul, Minn. Pioneer
Press. Lee Meade, public relations
director of the ABA, told of Mil-
waukee getting Alcindor in the
NBA draft.'
But Meade denied the reports
of, the ABA draft.
"The ABA will not release any-
thing on the draft until after the
draft is held," Meade said. He
added no date has been set for
the draft.

The NBA draft, Erickson said,
won't be held until after the (ol-
legiate season officially ends. That
normally is at the completion of
the NCAA tournament March 21-
22.
"At no time has the NBA ever
bothered college players or coaches
until after the season is over, and
that hasn't changed," i Erickson
said.
Walter Kennedy, commissioner
of the NBA, said he assumed
"either Phoenix or Milwaukee"
would get Alcindor in the NBA
draft.. ,
Bob Fowler, basketball writer
for the St. Paul Pioneer Press,
said the ABA had held two -ounds
in its secret draft and he obtained
the complete selections from a
"qualified source."
Fowler, in his story, said that
the ABA and member teams are
denying they have drafted the
players.,
