Offer to
isolate
compensation
issue in
negotiations
NEW YORK (AP)-Movement, ab-
sent for so long in the baseball
negotiations, continued to surface
yesterday with a proposal offered by
the players association which would
isolate the troublesome compensation
question from the rest of the issues.
Marvin Miller, executive director of
the union, said his group would with-
draw all of its demands in the area of
free agency and the reserve clause, if
agreement could be reached on the
other contract matters. Those would
include among other items, player pen-
sions, health and safety questions, and
minimum salaries.
"Since we are reasonably close on
issues outside of compensation and free
agency, we have offered to withdraw all
our proposals in these areas uncon-
ditionally," said Miller.
If the owners accpet that proposal, a
joint study committee would be
established to examine the ram-
fications of the current free agent
system for the next two years. At the
end of that period, if it is unhappy with
conditions, management would have
the right to demand that the contract be
reopened to deal with the issue.
Management negotiators asked for
time to. study the proposal and talks
were recessed until later in the day
when the owners' representatives were
to reply.
Ray Greybey, chief negotiator for the
clubs, declined immediate comment on
the players' proposal.

Flyers roar back
Philadelphia's Bobby Clarke flips the puck between the legs of New York Islander goalie Billy Smith, as the Flyers
score the first goal in last-night's 8-3 win over the Islanders. The Flyers thus tied their Stanley Cup final series at one
game apiece.

SPORTS OF THE DAILY

The compensation question has been
a cornerstone on management's
demands since these contact talks
began last winter. The clubshavetsaid
throughout they would insist on some
form of it being written into a new
agreement so that teams losing
premium free agent players, would
receive replacements.
The players association has been just
as adamant in its refusal to accept any
form of compensation and the talks
have been deadlocked for sometime on
that issue.

Jab bar to
LOS ANGELES (AP)-Los Angeles
Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar,
suffering from a sprained ankle, will
not make the trip to Philadelphia for
tonight's National Basketball
Association championship game again-
st the 76ers, the Lakers said Thursday.
Dr. Robert Kerlan said: "It is
extremely doubtful that Kareem would
be able to play. By keeping him in Los
Angeles and treating him here, he will
be much better prepared to play on
Sunday if that game is necessary."
Kerlan added that the prognosis for
the 7-2 center playing on Sunday in Los
Angeles-if a seventh and final game is
necessary-would be only 50-50.
Abdul-Jabbar injured the left ankle in
the Lakers' 108-103 victory over the
76ers Wednesday night that gave Los
Angeles a 3-2 advantage in the best-of-
seven NBA Championship series. He
hurt the ankle late in the third quarter
but came back to score 14 of his 40 poin-
ts in the final period, including the
three-point play with 33 seconds to go
that broke a 103-103 tie and resulted in
the victory.
