Uiihin-iti, on his way lo Chi- cago for the meeting of owners, said tlie only mailer still in con- tout kin was the question of pay- ing the players for any games postponed by Ihc slrike but made up later in the season. "Kvcrything else is in Gnherin said. The players reported to have softened their rigid stand lhat they he paid their full sala- ries if they play a full lG3-gnina schedule. One report said that (lahci'in was carrying him a player jn'ouosal quite similar lo the last offer made by the cm'ticrs and that the strike could end today. ''I'm very optimistic lhat it_ might be settled this said Tom Halter, player repre- sentative of Detroit Tigers. Ilaller described Wednesday's meetings between Gaherin and Miller as "an inter-twining of the minds lor a soluble solu- tion." tlnlierin was more direct. j "We dUln'L resolve he' The issue no longer is Ihe pen- ion question which touched aseball's first general strike almost two weeks ago. That mailer was settled by a com- iromise contribution igreed (o by the owners during marathon negotiations Tuesday.

Gaherin. say, if we a I- :cmpt to make up some or any of the Raines postponed so far and in so doing we create a situ- it ion where an admission will be charged for the games, we'll pay them. But if we bring it in as a single admission double- leader, we owe them nothing additional." The owners first argued that it players are paid lot 1B2 days, not 102 games. By that reasoning, pay for the 13 days Ihe players have missed would be eliminated. The players argue that if Ihcy are asked to play the full 162- game schedule, they should be paid for thai full schedule. Complicating the issue Is a split between the two leagues on whether the games missed so far should be made up at all. National League owners are be- lieved insisting on playing the full schedule and filling lha postponed games into the sea son. American League owners are willing to forget Lhe post- poned dates and pick up the season in progress. WILL BE DISCUSSED That was certain to be one ot the main subjects for discussion at today's meeting. Dud Selig, owner of Milwau- kee Brewers, said the owners have offered to pay the players one day'3 pay for each game made up and "a normal day's pay" for a double-header, not two days pay for two games in a single day. "I believe that both leagues should work on uniformity ant. will pull for said Selig on Ihc question ot the schedules. Selig said he anticipated an excellent chance for a settle- ment, today. Another factor lhat migh' speed an agreement today is the owners7 desire not to lose an other lucrative weekend with its obvious larger gates and Hie na- tional television revenue ol about One such week end already has been lost ant tnorc is no way Lo make up thai lost income.

They were told the dales would be made available for a professional operation. "We fWHA) must operate in a first-class manner to gain the respect of the fans as wcl as the players we hope lo en lice." said Hunter.
