pute between players and owners d a iy
has been settled, it was officially

to four years,
Under the old agreement, the
owners put $4.1 million into the
plan in 1967 and 1968.
The players originally had ask-
ed for a $6.5 million package but
then pared this down to $5.9 mil-
Under the new pact, retired

Although the baseball pension
plan looks alluring to an outsider,

Miller, the players' spokesman,
says that 59 per cent of major
league players today will not re-
main in the big leagues long
enough to qualify for it.
Just how alluring it is can be
seen from the fact that a 20-
year player who waits until 65
would get $1,487.50 a month.
The catch is that aside from
Stan Musial, 20-year players are
almost non existent. Mickey Man-
tle is only an 18 year veteran.
The players look on their pen-
sion as deferred pay, since they
are boxed in on personal negotia-
tions by the reservesclause. Under
this a player can only negotiate
with the team that originally sign-
ed him. Or the team to which his
contract is sold.
Miller had stated that the play-
ers may next attack the reserve
clause in the courts.
Miller termed the pension nego-
tiations "vary difficult"and own-
ers' representative John Gaherin,
when asked what was the main
stumbling block, snapped back
"Money. First, last and always,
money, the source of all evil."
Bowie Kuhn, baseball's n e w
commissioner, said that the "set-
tlement, is of course, still subject
to the ratification by the players
and the owners."~
"I am immensely pleased with
the settlement which I feel is fair
to the players and the clubs alike.
"I urge the players and the

Ten Commandments, but it is broken just as much. The fans ofI
the Fighting Illini demonstrated this beyond a doubt last Saturday asl
they put on the most disgusting exhibition of crowd behavior that I
have ever seen.
The Illinois supporters made a concerted effort to break every
one of the ten points within the first three minutes of the contest
and they succeeded admirably. I imagine talent like that comes from
a great deal of practice, though.
When the Michigan players were introduced before the game,
they were greeted with a solid chorus of 16,128 people booing. It was
so intense that people listening on radio could not hear the intro-
But that was just the tame stuff. The fans didn't really get intoj
form until the game started. At that point every referee's call was
soundly cheered or booed, depending on which way it went. And Mich-
igan players were not even accorded the respect that is due for ac-
complished athletes.
