Tutldoy, Match 31, 1970 THi UtrlbKIDOE H6KAIO 9 Milwaukee May IVot Get Baseball Franchise Another Roadblock For Seattle Move SEATTLK (AP) The Amer- lean League was faced with an intriguing section of its own constilulion and the disquieting threat ol antitrust legislation today as the uinding judical road from Seattle to Milwaukee suddenly scorned just a little longer. The road the Seattle Pilots hoped to tread to Milwaukee was studded with legal rocks throughout a tearing in federa bankruptcy court. Then a bout der bounced down from the bar to slop the day's.travel alto- gether. And probably more important to baseball in the long run was the possible landslide started when Washington's two power- ful Democratic senators, Henry M. Jackson and Warren G. Magmison, announced they Tvould sponsor legislation put- ting baseball under antitrust laws. Rep. Brock Adams, an- other Washington Democrat, was to sponsor similar legisla- tion in the House. The senators said the anti- trust action wouldn't have any bearing on the Seattle-Milwau- kee situation, "but rather couhl apply only against the Ameri- can League in future actions." Bankruplcy referee Sidney C. Volinn's comment in lire Seattle hearing came in his usual quiet, calm tone, but the impact seemed to change Ihe whole mood of Hie proceedings. "I roust coi if ess I'm intrigued by this section in your conslitu. tion about proceedings in bank- ruptcy Volinn told the American League attorneys. an damage-antitrust suit lhal would follow a Pilot love. But when it came time for the specific show cause why the club shouldn't be sold to the Milwaukee Brewers Base- ball Club, sprang to life and began picking at the league constitution. argued In his closing statement thai under baseball law the league takes over any franchise as scon as it enters a bankruptcy court. He said thai being Ihe case the club cou'd hardly say it couldn'l meet its debts because the American League wasn't in financial trou- ble. Volinn then asked Dwyer If ur.der that same coasiilution the league wasn't free to sell the club anyway. Dwyer said no, not it the constitution was taken as a vvho'.e and especially in the light of league promises to keep the club in Seattle for the 1970 season and underwrite its ex- penses. ANDY CAPP With thai, league attorneys popped up aad declared the league never committed itsel lo operate the club in Seattle for the season. However, Volinn lei the nat- ter hang in She new uncertainly and recessed the hearing to this morning. He said he wanted to think about the constitutional question. Fans File Suit SEATTU; (AP) Two spec- tators at a 1967 Western Hock- ey League game filed suit Mon- day for in damages they said were inflected when they were liit by a fish thrown by Portland player.

WORD FROM CALGARY is that Alberta's only manufacturer of mercury fungicides, to treat seed grain, will he discontinuing the manufacture of this product starling this year. Al McKinnon, manager of Canadian Industries Ltd. opcrnlions in Calgary, said no raw materials have been stockpiled for use in production this spring, nor are there any plans to produce any this fall. Reasons for the stop are said to be linked in part to an expected lack in demand because of the federal government's program to cut back wheat production. Farmers are also showing marked resistance to the use of mercury based fungicides. It's noted however, that CII, does have a carry- over of mercury fungicides and fanners will be able to purchase this if they so desire.
