Before Flood's Suit Owners Had Negotiated NEW YORK (API John Gaherin, labor relations nego- tiator for the major league baseball club owners, testified Friday in the Curt Flood case that the owners had negotiated in good faith to modify base- ball's reserve system before the suit was instituted. Gaherin characterized the rek ative bargaining strength of the clubs and the players in nego- tiations "as about as equal as any situation can produce." Gaherin testified for base- ball's defendants in the anti-trust suit that the owners h'ad recognized their ob- ligation to bargain collectively witli the players over the re- serve system during 1967. "Did the owners ever assert it was not a subject for collective asked lawyer Sandy Hadden. replied Gaherin. Gaherin then said there had been a period when the two par- ties engaged in a joint study, and finally, in August, 1969, the players association had asked that negotiations be opened on the subject of the reserve clause and related rules. Gaherin said the owners 'were shocked by the extent of the proposals" made by the players association because of what Ife said' would be the "ob- vious harm they would do to baseball." LISTS PROPOSALS He said those proposals In- cluded a provision for a base- ball player to gain free status after three years' service; a re- Edmonton Car Has A Driver EDMONTON fCP) Gra- ham Lawrence, 28, of New Zea- land has been named drivei- of the Edmonton-owned racing car "Spirit of Edmonton."

Baseball's defendants are ex- pected to call one more witness, an economist, before resting.

"irst Major Struck In World Cap Aci'wn without Ncwlon, the England defence looks much more solid than lhat of Brazil. England captain Bobby Moore announced: "The Mexican fans will see the real English team Sunday."

Even some English writers wavering in then- pre- iously-sti'ong support of the earn which won the Jules limet Trophy four years ago in he last World Cup finals. Frank Clougli of the London Sun wrote: "I've a hunch that nngland will get a draw in what ihould be the classic match of he competition." Brian Glan'ville of the London Sunday Times wi'ote: "The Bra- zilian 'attack is one of the finest n the game. Pcle still is in orm and that counts considera- I pick Brazil and England or the final." Since two teams quality for :he quarter-finals from each of :he four groups into which the .6 teams have been divided, joth Brazil and England are likely to advance from Group III. But the winner Sunday will a tremendous psychol- ogical lift. Brazil was disap- )ointing in 1966 after winning the World Cup in 1958 and 19G2. STYLES CONTRAST Two rival brands of soccer will be on flair and attacking brilliance against England's solid defen- sive system. England shut out Romania 1-0 last Tuesday and Brazil trounced Czechoslovakia 4-1 Wednesday. Pele turned in a "We will meet violence with he said. "I don't think England plans it rough game, hut if it does, we are pre- pared." In the other three matches Sunday, Mexico meets Kl Salva- dor in Group I, Israel clashes with Sweden in GiBup 11 and Bulgaria goes against West Ger- many in Group IV. But before then, the eight other teams will give clear incli- oilier, anil the teams appear so cation of their eventual fate in a closely matched lhat a dray quartet of second-round games would not be surprising. today. Russia, which managed a scoreless tic wilh Mexico in its opener, will be looking for a de- cisive victory over Belgium in Gi'oup 1. The Belgians beat El Salvador 3-0 earlier this week. Uruguay and Italy, each with a victory in Group II, face each great performance against the Czechs, and winger Jairzinho looked like a world-beater with two goals. England's strategy will be to give the Brazilian aces no room to manoeuvre. Since 1966, Eng- land manager Sir Alt Ramsey has sought to produce a team that can hold the ball in mid- field, seeking to dr'aw the oppos- ing defence forward so that stri- kers Geoff Hurst and Francis Lee can pounce. The efficiency of his 4-4-2 sys- tem depends largely on the form of Martin Peters, who probes to the left to make the scoring chances for Hurst. Brazil's midfield powerhouse, Gerson, is having trouble with an old back injury but the Eng- lish players think he'll be in ac- tion against them. Keith Newton, England right back, has an injured knee, and may be replaced by the less ex- perienced Tommy Wright. Even WINNIPEG (CP) Both sides exude confidence as they prepare for the first mind of Ihe North American zone Davis Cup competition. Non-playing captain of the Ca- nadian team, Lawrie Strong of Toronto, says his team of Mike Belkin and John Sharpe is capa- ble of taking the best-of-five ten- nis series. The playing captain of the Commonwealth Caribbean team, Richard Russell, is equally optimistic that his team can pull out a victory. Davis Cup, every match j is important and we'll be going in willi the attitude that we can win ever one of said Strong. "That's the way we're think- ing." Russell, on the other hand, feels he can take one singles match and the doubles team of himself and Lance Lumsden can capture a match. That would leave the deciding game in the hands of Lumsden and Canada's No. 2 player, Sharpe. Sharpe, of Toronto, and Rus- sell will' play the first singles today at the Winnipeg Canoe Club. In the second singles match Lumsden meets Vancou- ver's Belkin. The only action Sunday is the doubles competition. Teams in that confrontation are yel to be named, although it is expected both teams will enter top players. Van Burkleo Seeks Money OTTAWA (CP) BUI Van Burkleo, defensive halfback and back-up quarterback with Ot- tawa Rough Riders last season, has filed a suit to recover said to have been loaned to Red O'Quinn, former Ottawa general manager, and Rick Black, a retired Ottawa player.

Briere, 20, underwent brain surgery following a May 15 au- tomobile accident in Malartic.

This is the familiar "hit- ting through-the ball." It merely means that you should not do anything to impede the foreward pro- gression of the clubhead in the impact area. Since golf is indeed a game of feel, I think most club players would benefit, from this practice exercise: Using a short iron, swing back on more than three- quarters, then wilh the left hand in control get the feeling that you !'ing" the ball.
