The reserve clause...
.a bit of Ameriana
T[HE DECISION of Judge Irving Ben Cooper Wednesday up-
holding baseball's reserve clause may be heralded by Bowie
Kuhn and club owners everywhere as a great victory for base-
ball, the flag and the American way of life, but in their hearts,
Kuhn and the owners know that the battle has just begun
Judge Cooper's decision was but a meaningless skirmish,
the opening volley of a legal struggle that must inevitably
wind up in the lap of the Supreme Court. The court has
seen the reserve clause before, for the clause is as old and
controversial as organized pro ball itself.
Like many other fallen- idols, baseball started out as an
amateur pastime, growing immensely in popularity during the
years immediately after the civil war. Inevitably, interest grew
to such a point that winning became paramount to all other
considerations. Amateurism became so much bunk, and one New
York City team in the early 1870's was employed to the man
by the city's Sanitation= Department, which meant that the tax-
payers were footing the bill, some $30,000 per year. Under the
table incentives kept good players bounding from one team to
another like so many over heated jumping beans.
Finally, some fellows in Cincinnati got wise to the whole
system and formed an open, honest, no holds barred pro-
fessional team. The American sports scene would never be
the same. The Red Stockings, while not exactly getting
Namathian salaries, did manage to compile a 69-0 record,
and if there's one thing Americans love, it's a winner.
With pro teams emerging in great numbers in the 1870's
and salaries put above the board, owners had to wave bigger
and bigger salaries in front of the panting players' noses to lure
them into the fold, and it didn't take a genius to figure out
that this was bad for business. So a clever man who owned a
Chicago club corralled some of the best talent around, formed
the National League in 1876, and three years later rammed the
reserve clause into its constitution.
The man's name was William A. Hulbert, and consider-
ing his contributions to the game, it is surprising that Abner
Doubleday, who didn't invent the game and never thought
he did, hogs all of the glory. Hulbert, after all, was the
entrepreneur, the man who made it happen. We don't hon-
or whoever it was that invented the automobile, we laud
Henry Ford for mass-producing it. Certainly Hulbert de-
serves some credit for making baseball available to us all.
And so pro baseball meandered toward the 1920's, appar-
ently without a care in the world. Of course, gambling among
players was rampant, but no one was terribly impressed. Finally,
the Black Sox scandal blew the whistle on the more flagrant
abuses. A crackdown on gambling would take the sport as well
as the money out of the game, and, perhaps motivated by a
fear of loss of income, a suit was brought by some players chal-
lenging baseball's reserve clause on the grounds that it violated
anti-trust laws. After Congress and the Supreme Court played
catch with the question for a few years, the high court finally
decided that baseball was exempt from anti-trust laws.
Now Curt Flood has again challenged the system, and
I cannot help but feel that once the dust is settled, the re-
serve clause, old and faithful servant though it once was,
must die simply because it is outmoded.

overrides veto

ATLANTA (A) -- Promoters
confidently proclaimed yester-
day that the way is virtually
clear for Joe Frazier-Cassius
Clay heavyweight fight in At-
lanta, but Frazier's manager
immediately branded it non-
"It's a lie. There is no truth
to it at all," said Yank Durham
in Stateline, Nev., where Frazier
is appearing with his rock mu-
sic group in the lounge of a ca-
sino-hotel on the shores of Lake
Durham's wet blanket was
tossed over the proposed fight
less than three hours after state
Sen. Leroy Johnson said only
t h e fighters' signatures on a
contract stood in the way of an
Oct. 26 bout in 5,000-seat City
Clay, t h e former champion

stripped of his title after con-
viction on charges of refusing to
report for military service, at-
tended the Atlanta news con-
ference in which Johnson made
his announcement. He said he
would be willing to fight Fraz-
ier here.
"I don't know who they are
or what they are trying to do,"
Durham said when informed of
Johnson's plans. "We aren't
dickering with Cassius Clay. We
aren't interested in dickering
with Cassius Clay."
But Durham left the door
open for a possible bout with
Clay next year.
"We have a commitment to
fight Bob Foster," Durham said.
"Clay will not be fought until
we fulfill our obligation to

"If Clay has a license, then
we'll fight him next year. Let
him fight someone else and
prove to me he has a license."
Robert Kassel, a New York
attorney whose Sports Action
Inc. sponsored the Frazier-Ellis
fight and would underwrite the
Atlanta fight, also attended the
news conference a n d said he
was confident.
"All that is really necessary
now is for us to complete the
negotiations with the fighters,
sign the contract and have the
fight," Kassel said.

St. Mary's (Cal.) names
woman to be tennis coach
MORAGO, Calif. (P)-All-male St. Mary's College has jumped
ahead of the women's liberation drive by naming Lynne Abbes Rolley
as intercollegiate tennis coach.
The pretty 21-year-old brunette from Orinda, Calif., is one of the
youngest and no doubt prettiest coaches of a men's team in the
St. Mary's officials said Wednesday they did not know of any
other woman coaching a men's team on the college varsity level.
"I'm really thrilled about this," Mrs. Rolley said at a news con-
ference. "I like working with men."
Mrs. Rolley, who was ranked seventh among U.S. women tennis
players before retiring in 1967, has been a teaching professional three
years. "I'm teaching my husband how to play tennis, too," she said.
Recently she has been an assistant to Kevin Merrick, the tennis
pro at Orinda Country Club. Merrick, also coach at the University
of California, recommended Lynne for the St. Marys job.
St. Mary's is admitting women for the first time this fall, and
Mrs. Rolley plans to start a women's team. The Catholic school's en-
rolment is about 1,100 and about 130 women are expected to enroll for
the coming term.
For the past several years, the school has had no tennis coach.
A player-captain has been in charge of the squad. Victor Gill, last
year's player-captain, is one of the lettermen returning from the team
that was 4-10 last season.
Mrs. Rolley, who won several national titles as a junior player,

WASHINGTON (P)- President Nixon
broke even on two big veto battles in
the House yesterday, winning on an $18
billion bill and losing on a $4.4 billion
The House re-passed and sent to the
Senate the $4.4 billion appropriation bill
for the Office of Education for the pres-
ent fiscal year. It will become law over
the President's 'objections if the Senate
follows the House lead and gives it a two-
thirds vote of approval.
The $18 billion bill financing the De-
partment of Housing and Urban Affairs.
the Veteran Administration and a score
of smaller agencies was killed by the
House vote sustaining the President's
veto. It does not go to the Senate.
A new measure to replace it will be
started through Congress after Labor
Ronald Ziegler, White House press se
retary, said Nixon was pleased that his
veto of the independent offices appro-
priations bill was sustained and now
hopes that Congress will proceed prompt-
ly with a measure in line with his recom-
On the House's refusal to accept the
President's veto- of the education bill,
Ziegler said, "We will see what steps
need to be taken to minimize the harmful
consequences which result from the over-
The agencies financed in the larger
bill are receiving operating funds now
through an emergency bill which expires
on Oct. 15.
The vote to re-pass the education bill
was 289 to 114. That was 20 more than
the reqpired two-thirds.
The bigger Independent Offices bill got
a majority, 203 to 195, but fell 63 votes
short of the needed two-thirds.
A major factor in defeat of the $18
billion measure was refusal of many Re-

publicans to vote for it after having sup-
ported re-passage of the education meas-
In his two vetoes last Tuesday, the
President said the aggregate increase of
almost a billion dollars in the bills was
inflationary and could drive up prices
or make a tax hike necessary.
Democratic leaders disputed this, say-
ing the responsibility for inflation must
be shared by the President and claiming
he was not putting proper emphasis
on education and human needs.

reVA a sure
They argued during yesterday's debate
that the administration was spending too
much money on missiles, bombers and
the supersonic transport program.
Nixon vetoed the education bill because
Congress put $453 million more into it
than the requested. Much of the extra
money was for elementary and secondary
education programs and for aid to schools
crowded by children of federal workers.
The school aid goes to an estimated 350
congressional districts.
