Kuhn s action last week to invalidate Charlie Finley 13 5 million Sale re three top ballplayers bears a resemblance to Landis handling of the Black sox scandal baseball Ami most other pro sports for that matter a been suffering in the Public eve because of growing list of court Case and player negotiations Etc Finley Trade grew out of a court decision that baseball s Reserve clause was not constitutional current regulations allow a player to play oui hts contract years plus one Tan option year and become a free agent All three of the players Finley sold were playing out their option years Kuhn saw Finley s Sale of the players As dire predictions rom my True owners had Long contended that without a Reserve clause the Richer teams would be free to buy up Talent As it became available Boston and new y Ork Are certainly two of the american league s More prosperous teams and there they were buying Talent Kuhn saw the voiding of the Sale As necessary to keep pro baseball credible As Competition Between 24 teams with almost equal chances at gaming and keeping Talent and not As a Battle Between wealthy owners to see who can outbid the other the difference or at least one difference Between Kuhn and i my is is the times they live in before Laking his Job. Landis demanded and received carte Blanche in All matters he deemed detrimental to baseball in these Days of lawyers and agents for everyone involved with the team except the Bat boy. Such Power would never be Given to Kuhn liven though none of the eight White sox players were Ever convicted in the court. Landis order to ban them from baseball stuck it does i appear however in the Wake of Finley s suit to strike Down Kuhn s ruling that the voiding of the Oakland Sale will stick it also does i appear that the Days of a benevolent dictatorship of a Man like Landis who became known As the ballplayer s Friend for All his strict ways. Will Ever return to baseball or any pro sport again Hie interests of baseball Are no longer As simplistic As they once were and deriding How to Rule the sport is no Hinger As easy Asti once might have been.

Somewhere quite recently i read a splendid fable next week or the week after i will try to remember to look it up the Story had to do with a philosopher who. Once upon a time became the prisoner of an Oriental potentate he was about to be put to death when he made the potentate an offer in two years said the philosopher. He would teach the despot s horse to talk the bemused tyrant granted a two year reprieve Why had so absurd an offer been tendered said the philosopher Quot in two years i May be dead anyhow or the potentate May be dead anyhow or the horse May talk Quot an eminent historian once observed that the happiest hours of Mankind Are inscribed on the Blank pages of history toward that cond Hon of National Contentment our party pledges it a Yawn a unrelenting inattention the Art Buchwald column he never met miss Ray Washington a i know it hard to believe but i met a High government official the other Day who never met Elizabeth Ray the reason ifs hard is that according to miss rays Book Quot the Washington fringe Benefit Quot she met every person of importance within a 50-mile radius of the nations capital in fairness to miss Ray she did t claim she slept with everyone she met though the guinness Book of records has suddenly shown a great interest in Hen but she does insist she knew everyone from Eugene Mccarthy to Henry Kissinger. The High government official who asked that his name not be mentioned because he had never met miss Ray did t seem to have any logical reason to explain Why their paths had never crossed Quot in a not much of a party Man Quot he said so maybe that s the reason she left me out of her Book Quot Quot but surely i said Quot you could have been in a restaurant where she was dining she said she met a lot of important people in restaurants Quot in be wracked my brain Quot he replied. Quot but i Don t think i Ever ran into her in a restaurant if i had she surely would have remembered what about at the Washington Redskin games a in her Book she claims she met almost everyone of importance at the Redskin Quot i must admit that puzzled me because that would have been a place we could have met. I guess it was just Chance that we did t. My seats Are behind the goal posts at the West end of the Field and i understand she sat in a Box on the five Yard line on the East end of the Field ifs possible we could have waved to each other when the redskins scored a touchdown but if we did i guess she forgot if Quot Quot what about up on Capitol Hill in one of the orgy rooms she wrote about Quot Quot i never did hear about those rooms until miss by started talking about them in the newspapers i believe they were on the House Side of the Capitol and i spent most of my time on the Senate Side i wish i had known about it in those Days it certainly would have been a Nice place to wait while i was waiting to testify in front of a Dull Senate committee Quot but didst a congressman offer to introduce you to miss Ray and recommend her As a dinner date9�?T�?T he said. Biting his lip Quot it s hard for you to believe this. But the answer is no i Don t understand Why i have a lot of Power. In a not bad looking and i like to have a Good tune As much As the next person but neither or Hays nor anyone else on the Hill had the Courtesy to say to me. I d like you to meet my Secretary she can Type four words a minute Quot Quot sir. Do you think the fact you weren t mentioned in miss Ray s Book could Hurt your career a Quot Well.
