usual House subcommittee ap- .
pearance, Sen. Sam J. Ervin
announced yesterday he will in-
troduce legislation to exempt
professional athletes from "slav-
ery" through antitrust exemp-
tions and the reserve clause.
"I hope you will all join with
me in trying to pass this legis-
lation to help vindicate the cou-
rageous sacrifice of Curt Flood
so that those athletes that come
after can say truthfully and
proudly that 'I am not a piece of
property,' " the North Carolina
Democrat said.
Declaring it "is easy to become
very emotional about the plight
of American professional ath-
letes," Ervin said "even though
their numbers are small, they
are slaves. Even though many
of them are well paid, they are
well-paid slaves,
"In this land of the free and
the home of the brave, we have
a group of citizens who cannot
sell their talents in the free en-
terprise system," he said.
Ervin said his bill would per-
mit an athlete upon expiration
of his contract to enter into a
contract with any other person.
Appearing before a House judi-
ciary subcommittee, Ervin said
athletes are held in bondage by
club owners through such de-
vices as the reserve clause, op-
tion clause, league rules and
court decisions exempting base-
ball from antitrust laws.

HE ALSO SPOKE against o
bill before the subcommittee to
permit the merger of the Na-
tional Basketball Association and
American Basketball Association.
"The basketball owners are
asking Congress to give them the
same type of monopolistic pow-
ers over their players and I
think it is atrocious that this He
servitude is going on in 20th lie
century America and any sports fo
legislation that passes Congress sta
should abolish it," Ervin said. far
