Pro gridders threaten strike

Football League players have
voted to strike unless club owners
grant their demands for increased
exhibition game pay, a higher
minimum salary and an improved
pension plan, The "Associated
Press learned yesterday.
It was learned that all 640 NFL
players were polled by telephone
and that a vast majority approved
a strike.
It also was learned that an

emergency meeting between rep-
resentatives of the Players' Asso-j
ciation and an owner delegation
was scheduled for today in Detroit.
John Gordy of the Detroit
Lions, president of the association,
and vice president King Hill, Phil-
adelphia Eagles quarterback, re-
portedly led the association dele-
Owner Art Modell of the Cleve-1
land Browns is the chief spokes-1
man for the owners.
The association not only took
a strike vote but also wrote to
Rep. Emmanuel Celler, (D-N.YJ,
requesting that the congressman
check alleged inequities in the
players' financial situation as a
result of the pro football merger.
Celler reportedly replied to the
association letter. He allegedly
promised to look into the situa-
tion and to reopen congressional,
hearings on the football merger if
it violated any trust law.
The players wrote Celler that
pro football commissioner Petej
Rozelle had promised the merger
would benefit the health and
welfare of the players.
They reportedly contended that
Modell has contradicted Rozelle's
statement. The Cleveland owner
reportedly said that if the current
player demands were met it would
jeopardize the merger.
Earlier, Hill was quoted in a
newspaper story as saying, "I
think we've made it evident we
can carry out a strike if neces-

Hill discussed from his Houston
home the worst labor crisis in the
history of the NFL. The owners
and the Players Association ap-,
parently have reached an impasse
over association demands. Among
other things the players are ask-
ing $500 each for an exhibition
game, $100,000 from each club
in the pension plan and a $15,000
minimum salary.
- The owners reportedly would
try to field teams of their rookies
and farmhands if the association
struck. Hill said of this, "I don't
think the young players would
go through with it. There are 640
of us and they'll have to play
against us some day. Anyway,
we're doing this for them, too."
Hill said the association is
ready for give-and-take negotia-
LOS ANGELES (4) - Michi-
gan's Ron Kutschinski was in-
cluded in a list released yes-
terday of 16 athletes who will
be allowed to attend the final
U.S. Olympic trials at Lake Ta-
hoe despite not having pre-
viously qualified. All of the
track stars were prevented from
qualifying by illness or injuries.
Kutschinski, who recorded,
the world's fastest half mile of
the year three weeks ago, .was

at the NCAA championship
meet and failed to place.

tions. "We don't feel that every
rookie on the squad should get
$500 for an exhibition," he said.
"There could be some kind of
scale. But the way things go, it's
the veterans, not the rookies, who
play in these exhibitions."
Hill broke his hand last Aug. 12
in an exhibition game against the
Minnesota Vikings and didn't play
for two months. That was for the
$10 a day the NFL pays in train-
ing season.
The owners have agreed to raise
the minimum salary to $10,000.
Hill says this is meaningless since
nobody is making less than $12,000
now. "That was the figure agreed
upon when the leagues merged.
'And something must be done
about our pension plan, which is
about one-third that of baseball.
Most veteran players without
carryover contracts have not been
signed by NFL teams. Hill, said of
this, "that's going to be a prob-
lem. Let's say we have only three
or four days to negotiate our con-
tracts. That puts a lot of pressure
on us. And I hear there are 30
Eagles unsigned." "
Hill said he believes both sides
have been afraid of losing face.
"Well, we're willing to make the
first move. We'll exhaust every
possibility before we do something
drastic. We know a strike could
hurt football. After all, we're foot-
ball people not labor people. It's
tough getting in shape running up
and down these hotel corridors."

Odom of Oakland and Jose Sani-

It's the third time McDowell
and Stottlemyer have been se-
a lected for the team, the second
time for McLain and the first for
all four others.
The staff was picked by Dick
Williams, manager of the de-
fending ,champion Boston Red
Sox, who will lead the AL team
in its effort to break a five-year
losing streak against the Nation-
al League the night of July nine
in Houston.
McLain was the starting pitch-
er in the 1966 game at St. Louis,
pitching three perfect innings.
McDowell, 7-6 and the league
leader in strikeouts, pitched two
innings in the 1965 game at Min-
nesota, giving up a run in the
seventh and winding up as the
losing pitcher in a 6-5 NL vic-
tory. The Cleveland fireballer was
also selected for the 1966 squad,
but came up with arm trouble
and was replaced by teammate
Sonny Siebert.
Stottlemyre, 9-4, was 'picked
to the 1965 team but didn't get
into the game. He pitched two
scoreless innings, giving up one
hit, in 1966. The Yankee sinker
ball ace has three shuouts to his
credit this season.,
Tiant has pitched six shutouts,
including a two-hitter and a pair
of three-hitters, in compiling an
