Chandler said the caliber of
major league baseball has slipped
25 per cent in the last few years,
and predicted it will continue to
deteriorate as the minor league
training empire dwindles.
"We have a limit on how little
a fish can be caught," he said,
"but baseball has no such limits
on ball players. They've vetoed
the rule which banned signing of
high school and college players,
and they're paying these huge
bonuses to untried youngsters.
"Major league ball players must
be smart and mature - or at
least mature. But you'll find a lot
of kids up there who just aren't
ready, and a lot of old timers who
should have retired years ago.
Baseball just isn't as good as it
used to be. ,
"They hit a new low last week
when they passed that rule to al-
low inter-league trades without
getting waivers. Frick was against
it, but that made no difference to
the owners. It just shows how
much power Frick has. I just
wouldn't have permitted it, no
matter what the owners wanted."
On the third major league plan
which is being studied, Chandler
"If baseball is to survive - andI
I think it's headed for destruc-
tion - you must have local ri-
valries. Who cares whether the
Phillies beat Los Angeles or San
Francisco? You can't find out un-
til the next day anyway, if they
play on the coast.
"The three-league answer is to
set up one circuit on the east
coast, one in the mid-west and
one in the far west. It would cut
traveling expenses and set up ri-
valries which do not now exist.
"I also think umpires should be
handled only by the commission-
er, and that they should be offi-
cials of baseball -1 not of the
National and American Leagues.
That would get away from World
Series and All-Star game inci-
dents such as choke-up signs.
Umpires should work in both
leagues during the season."
FOLKESTONE, England A) -
Denis Pearson, 26-year-old South
Rhodesian sergeant, yesterday
swam the English Channel in 15
hours, 36 minutes -- the first
swimmer to make the crossing
Pearson plunged into the water
off France early yesterday and
waded ashore at Folkestone about
1 p.m. (EST).
The Rhodesian's successful
swim across the 22 miles of water
marked the start -of another Eng-
lish Channel swimming season.
By the end of September about
a dozen swimmers - men and
women - will have added their
names to the list of Channel
swimmers started by Capt. Mat-
thew Webb in 1875.
HONOLULU (A) - Ralph Lar-
rabee's 161-foot schooner Good-
will moved to the front yesterday
as leaders in the Trans-Pacific
Yacht Race neared the finish line.
But because of her handicap,
the Goodwill, only 188 miles from
Honolulu just before dawn, was
far behind in standings.
The handicap leader was the
Chubasco, of Newport Beach,
Calif. The Chubasco was 215
miles from Diamond Head.
Race officials said the leading
boats probably passed Diamond
Head last night or early today.
The record, set by the ketch

The Goodwill, with a crew of
more than 50, had moved well
south of the rest of the fleet,
seeking better winds which
brought her to the front. Most of
the other boats were strung out
northeast of the Hawaiian Island
At the 5 a.m. (HST) roll call,
the schooner Constellation from
Los Angeles was third in fleet po-
sition - 232 miles from Hono-
lulu. The Constellation is skip-
pered by Sally Blair Ames, 19, the
only woman skipper-owner in the
race. She was in seventh place in
fleet handicap standings but in
first place in Class A handicap.
Third in fleet standings was
the Jada, a 56-foot yawl owned
by George Stugis opofNweifthe
by George Stugis of Newport
Beach. She was 336 miles out.
The Honolulu catamaran,
Aikane, which was not allowed to
compete in the race but made the
run anyway, crossed the finish
line at 7:30 a.m. yesterday. Her
time was 9 days and about 221/2
hours. Owner Ken Murphy made
the crossing to show the sea-
worthiness of twin hull cara-

BOSTON (P) - The Chicago
White Sox yesterday announced
they have hired Bill Norman,
former Detroti manager, for a

The White Sox said Norman

Reporters Gather Stories
The lobby bustled with activity,
too. Interpreters helped reporters
gather information from the
Russians, who, in turn used the
interpreters to gather informa-
tion about all they saw.
"That's Filipe Alou and Willie

Giants' baseball team," an inter-
preter told one group of Russians.

"They were very intense in
their questions and certainly en-
grossed with my answers," Bragg
said. "I think they want to buy
the same type pole I use- to take

Excludes Politics '
Asked if they'talked about any-
thing besides sports, Bragg said:
"If 'you mean politics, no. After
all they're here for only a week
and I'm not going to ask them
what they think of Poland.'
They're friendly, cooperative and
interested in track."
Frank Potts of the University
of Colorado, head U. S. coach,
said everything was r u n n i n g
smoothly with Russian coach
George Korobkov. "He's very co-
operative," Potts said.
"The only questions that came
up were on the use of asphalt
runways and the schedule of the
broad jumping event.
"The Russian jumpers are used
to performing on clay runways.
We are getting them needle
spiked shoes suitable for asphalt.
If they like it we'll use the as-
phalt. If not, we'll go back to the

out a spectacular No. 2 iron shot
from 200 yards for a double eagle
on the 477-yard par 5 18th.
That gave Casabella a 69 to
match his opening round score.
Keith, missing a 12-foot side hill
putt that curled away at the last
second, finished with 71. Palacio
had 69-69-138. Hal McComas, 24,
Dallas favorite who shot 67 Mon-
day, slipped to 72 and was brack-
eted at 139 with Gene Dahlbender
of Atlanta who shot 70-69.
Following them were Gene Dix-
on, Memphis, 69-72-141; Don Es-

champion, 72-69-141; Rolf Dem-
ing, Minneapolis, 72-70-142; Ray
Patak, Dallas, 68-74-142; and Al
Benefiel, Denver, 68-74-142.
Dallas won the Warren G. Hard-

pion ship with a three-man ag-
gregate score for the 36 holes of

and Patak was Gene Towry. San

To End Early
MARBLEHEAD, Mass. (A') -
Early afternoon Coast Guard re-
ports indicate leaders in the
Marblehead-Halifax, N. S. yacht
race might finish last night, ear-
lier than expected.
Because of limited visibility in
fog; the, Coast Guard cutter Yak-
utat could not tell which craft
Was in the lead.
The 43-foot yawl Aquila, owned
by George H. Clowes Jr., a Woods
Hole, Mass, doctor, was sighted at
noon headed northeast, tabout 24
miles off Liverpool, N. S.
The Aquila was carrying a spin-
naker and rode a 10-knot, south,
southwest wind. Visibility there
was 300 yards.
The Aquila is a Class C craft,
much smaller than any yachts
sighted in the area so far. Her
position indicated that larger
boats are near enough to Halifax
for an evening finish.
