Pro-Player Union Accepted
By NFL Commissioner Bell

WASHINGTON () -Pro foot-
ball Commissioner Bert Bell, act-
ing singlehandedly, yesterday
granted recognition to a National
Football League players union.
Bell made his bombshell an-
nouncement before the House An-
titrust subcommittee, which is
surveying professional sports oper-
ations.
He said he decided to, accept the
NFL players association as. a bar-
gaining agency without consulting
club owners.
The owners last winter had re-
fused to recognize the association,
formed during the 1956 season.
They reacted to Bell's surprise de-'
cision mainly with approval, al-
though some questioned the Com-
missioner's authority to make in-
dependent agreements with any
outside individual or organization.
Miller Gratified
Creighton Miller, a former Notre
Dame back who is attorney for the
association, said he was "most
gratified" as long as Bell could act
for the league.
The commissioner, had told the
subcommittee he recognized the
association "on behalf of the
league."
While he said he had.not sought
prior assent from club officials, he
testified he "told some of them"
what he planed to do.
Bell announced In a prepared
statement at the outset of the
final day of the football phase of
the subcommittee's investigation
that he is prepared to "negotiate
immediately" with association rep-
resentatives "concerning any dif-
ferences between the players and
the clubs that may exist."
Sore Point
Failure to recognize the organi-
zations previously had been a sore

point with several subcommittee
members.
Miller said he would confer with
Bell at the All-Star football game
in Chicago next Friday.
The attorney said the associa-
tion is-'not a union in the ordinary
senese" but patterned after the
major league baseball players' as-
sociation.
Initial subjects for negotiation,
he said, would be a contract
clause guaranteeing pay for in-
jured players and pay for presea-
son games over and above contract
salaries.
Miller emphasized the associa-
tion had no intention of bargain-
ing for individual player salaries.
Ith primary function, he said,
would be to negotiate on working
conditions' and possibly a mini-
mum salary for the league.
Oliver's 6
Heads Tam
Golf Field
CHICAGO (P) - Ed "Porky"
Oliver, whose four children 'keep
him busy as a main breadwinner
on the tourney circuit, shoved his
way ahead of the younger set yes-
terday with a fabulous 66 to take
the first round lead in the $25,-
000 All-American golf meet at
Tam O'Shanter.
The 40-year-old pro, now regis-
tering out of Canton, Mass., never
missed a green as he putted for a
birdie or an-eagle on every hole
in shooting a pair of 33's against
Tam's par 36-36-72.
Biss Casper Jr., 26, of Bonita,
Calif., upheld the hope of the
younger players by carding a 34-
33-67 among late' finishers.
Followed by Snead
Oliver, who has finished in the
money in 10 out of 14 starts with-
out a victory this season for earn-
ings of a mere $3,789, was followed
closely by 45-year-old Sam Snead
and. two comparative upstarts.
* Coming in with 68s in the chase
for a $3,500 first prize - a prelude
to next week's $101,200 "World
Championship" for men pros -
were Snead, Shelley Mayfield, 33,
of Jericho, N.Y., and Tommy Bolt,
36, of Los Angeles.
Bunching the field were eight
69 shooters. They included two
younger hopes - Paul Harney, 28,
of Worcester, Mass., and Arnold
Palmer, 27, Latrobe, Pa.
