12 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, February TO, 1973 Reserve clause an issue Miller keeps silent NEW YORK (At" - Marvin Miller still isn't, tn.lk.ina, but the executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association will hold a news conference Monday to respond to club owners' latest contract proposals. An association spokesman sairi Friday that Miller was not polling the player representatives on each club but was 'waiting to see if the offer by t.he owners stands firm." On Thursday, the owners made what they termed a landmark proposal in an effort to avoid a repeat of last year's strike. But at the same time, they told the players not to report to training camps if cur- rent negotiations aren't settled. The owners' representative. John Gaherin, said the offer called for arbitration in settling salary disputes between teams and players. Gaherin said the players' union has made salary talks a key part of negotiations, along with the reserve clause, a pension- benefit, plan and the ''basic agreement" covering all other player-club relationships. The players have sought to alter or eliminate the reserve clause, which binds a player to one club until he retires or is traded or released. On Jan. 5, they proposed discussions on this issue be put off for a year. Local karate stars shine Lethbridge competitors won their share of honors recently at a karate tournament at Medicine Hat.

Will try it on one-year basis Eastern playoffs sudden-death By GORDON GRANT Canadian Press Sports Editor TORONTO (CP) - Playoffs in the Eastern Football Conference will be sudden-death this year, Jack Gaudaur, commissioner of the Canadian Football League, said Friday. Previously, the EFC had played a sudden-death semi-final and a two-game, total-points final. Gaudaur told a news conference that the EFC will use the new system on a one-year trial basis. The Western Football Conference used it last year and will again this year. "It should be noted that the EFC has determined it will follow the same pricing concept as adopted by the WFC last year," Gaudaur said following the wind up of the CFL annual meeting. "For the semi-final game it will be a $10, $8 and $5 price level and for the final it will be $12, $10 and $6.. "A factor in the decision was a general commitment made in discussions with the Canadian Football League Players Association last year that the EFC would go to the sudden-death concept if the experience in the West determined that the West would conitnue." The WFC has decided the sudden-death format is superior to its former system where there was a sidden-death semi-final and a best-of-three final. Gaudaur also said playoff salaries will be the same in both conferences: Players with the first-place team-it receives a bye into the final-will get $600 HARDLITE LENSES For everyone who wears glasses Available m ALL prescriptions.

Each player on the winning team in the final will get $800 and the losers $600 each. Thursday, he said the Grey Cup winners will receive $3,000 a man, up from $2,000 in 1972, and the losers $2,000 each, up from $1,500. That would mean the Grey Cup winners will earn an extra $4,400. The EFC has also decided to increase its schedule to 16 games from 14 in 1974. The two extra games will be between EFC clubs-there will be no extension of the interlocking schedule.
