Ciiilierin called (lie to submit llic dispute lo arbitration 'particularly offensive" to the owners, lie then suggested that be players open ttie season vhilc "the. parties, with the as- iislnncc of. such experts us may )c necessary, continue lo nego- ft in faith." He said "such experts" coukl be actuaries, adding: "We don't consider arbitra- ors to bo experts." "We offered that if they like, he arbitrator could be an ac- said Miller. "Since Ihey haven't bargained n good faith yet, there's no rea- son lo believe they would do so Miller said in rejecting hat offer. WANTS SECRET POLL Gaherin also suggested that be players be secretly polled again on a strike. He said lie "lias received communication from almost every major league club indicating that some, and probably the majority, of the Dlayers want to return to the "We believe the players gen- erally agree with us and that :hey would, if given the chance to express themselves privately, vote to honor their individual contracts and play hall." "We're prepared to call our board inlo replied Miller, "if the owners make some counter-proposal." Ile said, however, he has "talked to the player represent' atives constantly" since the strike began last Saturday, cur- tailing spring training, "and tho sentiment I get is lhat tbe play- ers are solid and getting angrier by the niiuute. "f believe that II the owners were polled again you'd find Ihe biggest split you ever saw." FOURTH DAY, NO DAT.L Meanwhile, today was the fourth day nf c'-'V Fon, and for the fourth day .1 -n also were no further meetings .scheduled Lo deal with lue strike. The dispute Is over the amount the owners ivill contrib- ute to the players' pension fund. The owners have offered an In- crease of on top of their annual contribution of fSA mil- lion, wilh tbe new money lo be earmarked for the health care part of the pension package- The players want a 17-per-ccnl cost-of-living increase In retire- ment benefits. Miller has suggested such an Increase could come by reallo- cating money from increased in- terest in the pension fund, gen- eral overfunding and a leftover surplus from payments to per- manently disabled players. Hie owners liavo rejected lhat pro- posal. "The said Gaherin, "Is whether the players are reason- ably entitled to a 17 per cent in- crease In pension benefits, or, for that matter, any Increase nt all." "The players' benefit plan Is easily the most generous benefit plan In America. It has many unique provisions, including a variable feature which was built into the plan lo protect the play- ers against changes in the cost of living.
