A two-run homer by Bill Gra- barkewitz won far the Dodgers in their sixth-inning recovery as Feeney Favors Change In Clause NEW YORK (CP) The president of the National League agreed Monday it would be fair to relax some rules of baseball's strict reserve clause. Chub Feeney, testifying in federal court in the controver- sial Curt Flood suit against baseball, said he would favor a change in the reserve clause and let a player become a free agent at the age of 55. Major League owners have steadfastly refused to budge in contract negotiations with the players' association. Under the present system, there is no age limit when a player automati- cally becomes a free agent. Flood's suit charges the re- serve clause is, in effect, a form of slavery which binds a player to a team for a lifetime. Feeney, under cross-examina- tion by one of Flood's lawyers. Jay Topkis, was first asked if he would favor a change in the rules that made a man a free agent. "Yes. How about 55? asked Topkis, obviously trying to get something for the record. EXPORT 'K REGULAR AND KINGS "That would be said Feeney. Feeney, a former general manager of San Francisco Giants, also reiterated claims by many that in order to protect the owner's investments and the integrity of the game, "these rules ai'e necessary." Feeney was the only witness called Monday. He is to con- tinue his testimony today along with American League Presi- dent Joe Cronin and Bing De- vine, general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. Feeney, describing his deal- ings with players as a general manager, said: "'Contract nego- tiations are very real. The club needs the player as much as the player needs the club." Chicago pitcher Bill Hands suf- fered his third defeat in 10 deci- sions. After giving up three straight hits and two runs to Los Ange- les at the start, Hands held the Dodgers hitless until the deci- sive sixth inning. Willie Davis opened the win-1 ning rally with a triple and soored on Wes Parker's double. Grabarkewitz followed with his fifth home run of the season and second in as many days. The Dodgers' fourth consecu- tive win advanced them to sec- ond place in the West Division, half a game ahead of the third- place Atlanta Braves and 6% behind the leading Cincinnati Reds. At Pittsburgh, Dick Ellis scat- tered six San Diego hits, singled and scored twice as he posted his fourth victory of the season. Matty Alou and Willie Stargell hit two doubles each to pace the Pirates nine-hit attack on three Padres pitchers.
