He sat in on Holtzman's hearing as team player representative. "I don't know if I'll bring a lawyer or just go in myself and say, 'Here's what I did last season. Where's the the World Series and American League most valuable player said. "If I were him, I'd bring a whole bunch of said reliever Rollie Fingers whose hearing was scheduled for Tuesday. "If he loses three cases, it could cost him about Before the hearing, Finley declined to comment on the team's unsettled managerial situation. However, he said that a federal court ruling here Monday meant "I am now at liberty to go out and employ any manager I wish." The ruling barred former manager Dick Williams, with two years left on his contract, from working for any other team for the next two seasons. Williams reacted in Florida by noting the Athletics open spring training late-next week in Mesa, Ariz., and "I just may show up there." "I wouldn't be said Fingers and added that he thinks the 1974 manager will be someone from within the club's organization if Williams doesn't return. "I think it's, too late to go out and get someone who isn't familiar with the Fingers said. Holtzma, Knowles and Fin- gers are all represented by Jerry Kapstein, a lawyer from Springfield, Virginia.

(AP) In a turnabout, former Oakland Athletics manager Dick Wjlliams says he may report to spring training camp and manage the baseball club for another season. "I just may show up he said in an interview. I'm under contract." Williams, who has been feuding with Charles 0. Finley, owner of the American League team, in attempt to get released from the remaining two years of his contract, made his comments following a federal judge's ruling Monday in San Francisco. United States District Judge Lloyd Burke ruled Williams 'had breached his contract with Finley and therefore could not manage another major league baseball team until after the 1975 season. Williams announced his resignation at the end of last season and accepted the managerial position with New York Yankees. That agreement was ruled invalid by American League president Joe Cronin. Finley has yet to name a new manager and Williams said Monday: "I'd hate to see another manager appointed."

MONTREAL (CP) Coach Scotty Bowman of Montreal Canadiens says the so-called "million-dollar malaise" has not spread noticeably to his National Hockey League club. "We're fortunate 1 think that we have players who Tiers around when it wasn't a market as it is Henri Richard, Frank Mahovlich, Jimmy Roberts and Claude they sUH set the said Bowman Tuesday. Bowman was commenting on remarks made by Bobby Hull, playing coach of Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association. Hull said in a recent interview Quit some players were just not putting oat for the money they were receiving "Why should a guy with a half-million dollar contract want to have blood dripping down hss face, or sweat, or play with Hull asked. "Hell, they won't even play with braised feelings now." Bowman said that no matter bow lucrative a player's con- tract might be, he as a coach still had the power to bench him when he wasn't producing. And there are players on the Canadiens "who really want to play for said Bowman, citing Steve Shutt, a sophomore left winger, as a prime example. "When he wasn't playing much last year and Billy Har- ris, his winger with the (To- ronto) Mariboros, was getting ail the ice time be could handle, Shutt was quick to point out that it is much better to spend a season with a winner than with a team that's oat of it in November." Bowman said the age of af- iioence has caused some prob- lems but the full effects will not be known for a while yet. "It has created problems with he noted. "Let's face it, when you're making so much money, you're more likely to take a few people out and linger over a long dinner, that kind of thing. And the ccmld have a more serious cfftxt on mental conditioning. "Take a young player like Denis Potvin of the Islanders.

Each year he keeps adding to this so that in five years or so, he's guaranteed to 130.000 for life.
