By DAN BORUS
With all the grace of a whoop-
ing crane and the power of a
bald eagle, the Gooney Birds,
named after B.F. Skinner's im-
mortal pigeons swept to a.14-10
victory over the Computer Num-
mies in Championship Slow-Pitch
IM action yesterday.
Manager Don Powell celebrat-
ed his birthday by slamming an
opposite-field round tripper in the
fourth frame as the Gooneys,
composed of primarily psychol-
ogy students and teaching fel-
lows, rallied to outlast the older
Nummies.
Powell w a x e d philosophical
when questioned about the blast,
"I had one strike on me, so I
had to protect the plate. (Only
two 'strikes are allowed in slow-
pitch). The guy (Nummie pitcher
Dave Flower), fearing my power
pitched me outside. I went with
the pitch with a nice easy
stroke."
The contest opened with what
looked to be an easy rout for the
Gooneys. They tallied twice in
the first, one driven in by a
Powell shot in the hole. The
Nummies, meanwhile were sty-
mied by hurler Kerry Meyer,
knocking three easy ground balls.
The Gooneys came back with"
two more in the top half of the
second inning. But the game was
far from over.
Powerful Jeff Anthony, Num-
mie clean-up swatter, resisted
taunts from Gooney benchjockeys
and lashed a two-ball offering for
a tremendous home run deep to
straightaway center. Next follow-
ed five consecutive singles pro-
ducing three Nummie runs.
With the score knotted at 4-4,
the Birds took the lead in the
third by one run. But the pro-

digious Anthony arched a two-
run shot for the circuit over the
right fielder's head. His blow was
followed immediately by another
home run and the Nummies had
a 7-S lead.
The Birds came storming back
with four runs in the fourth and
three in the fifth to take a lead
they were not to surrender.
Though they stung the ball, the
Gooneys were by numerous field-
ing miscues and misjudgments
on the part of the Nummies.
For their part, the Gooneeys
settled down defensively and with
the exception of a three-run sixth
inning for the Nummies the new
champs blanked their opposition
the rest of the way.
Needless to say, jubilation was
the word of the day on the
Gooney side. "We got the big
one," an elated Powell crowed.

BALTIMORE (P -P J o h n n y
Unitas, benched and then traded
by the Baltimore Colts, sued his
old National Football L e a g u e
team for $720,000 yesterday on
charges of a malicious breach of
contract.
The suit, filed in Baltimore
Superior Court, contended that
Colt General M a n a g e r Joe
Thomas had made it impossible
for Unitas to carry out his play-
ing contract or a 10-year agree-
ment that was to follow his
active career.
Unitas signed the multi-year
agreement in 1970 with Carroll

"We were really doing well with
that easy stroking and we figured
that if we went into the seventh
with a four-run lead, it would
be all over.
There had been some rough
words between the contending
squads, especially- in the pivoted
fourth inning. Nummie coaches
were irked by Meyer's delivery,
w h i c h they claimed failed to
adhere to the one-second hesita-
tion rule. And a flying elbow in-
cident at second base in the same
frame proved to be a spark of
contention between the two top-
flight squads. But Powell passed
over the incident lightly, "These
things happen in the big games."

Rosenbloom, former owner of the
Baltimore franchise.
The veteran quarterback, now
40, was paid $125,000 annually for
three years as a player, and was
to be paid $30,000 annually under
a 10-year pact in a non-playing
capacity.
The suit charges that starting
from Oct. 15, 1972, Thomas had
"engaged in a course of conduct
which was designed to and did,
in fact, embarrass and humiliate
Unitas and otherwise made it
impossible for Unitas to carry
out his obligations under the
agreement."
