Ferguson Jenkins, but "no deal has been completed CHICAGO (AP) American League owners named Lee MacPhail, general manager of New York Yankees, to succeed Joe Cronin as president of the league Tuesday, effective Jan 1, 1974 Cronin, 67, will preside over the American League meetings in Houston next December MacPhail, 55, said he would like to have a couple of months to clear up his business with the Yankees MacPhail, who resides in New York, said he hasn't decided on where he will re- establish the American League office and said it is 'quite possible to leave Boston "I have no immediate plans for any changes as of now I want to have time to talk with Joe because we have a lot of things to discuss I hate to change from being active or leaving I spent one year in the commissioner's office and I don't like being neutral "But neither did I want to miss this opportunity MacPhail and Cronin said the owners discussed other league matters and that the American League will make every effort to make the designated hitter rule per- manent Now it is on a three- year experimental basis Cronin read a statement from the Yankees that it was with great "trepidation" that the Yanks gave MacPhail per- mission to accept the ap- pointment The Yankees said they regretted his loss but that the loss to the team was the gam of the league "I echo those sentiments said Cronin "We couldn t have a more qualified man to represent the American League MacPhail said "The new ownership of the Yankees had nothing to do with my leaving the club I found my relationship with the new owners excellent Cronin, who still has two years to go on his contract, said he will remain as chairman of the board Thus Cronin is ending a 14- year reign as the league s fourth president, during which it expanded to 10 from eight teams adding the then Los Angeles Angels and the new Washington Senators the old ones had moved to Minnesota and then to 12 with the addi- tion of Seattle Pilots, now the Milwaukee Brewers and the Kansas City Royals When he succeeded the late Will Harndge in 1959, Cronin moved the league offices from Chicago to Boston Cronin has achieved virtual- ly every attainable success in the game of baseball, beginn- ing with his selection as Most Valuable Player in the American League in 1930 when he batted 346 for the original Senators Three years later he was named the team's player- manager

For you see, we've spent the last eleven years design ing and refining things into it that take almost that long to fully savor. You'll probably sense the advantage of Volvo's 4-wheel disc brakes the first time you come to a panic stop. But it may take you ages, if ever, to appreciate our triangular-circuit braking supplies about 80% of braking power if one circuit should ever fail. And it may take a long trip with the family before you get the full taste of Volvo's interior. With orthopedically-designed bucket seats that adjust to the needs of your spine. With about as muclj legroomand trunk space as some of the largest luxury sedans made. And a ten-outlet heating system that warms the passengers in back without wilting the ones in front. Tuck into enough tight parking spaces, weave through enough frantic cities, and you'll revel in yet another Volvo virtue that seems to grow more virtuous with time. A turning circle actually as small as the Volkswagen Beetles. Wait for a foggy freeway night and you'll gain a clearer understanding of why Volvo is surrounded by 3800 square inches of glass. With no so- called opera windows to heighten the drama. And you'll probably have to travel over some of the worst roads imaginable to completely respect the integrity of Volvos body. A body welded in one of its thousands of spot welds strong enough to support its entire weight. What we now suggest is that you go to your nearest Volvo dealer and take a test drive. And if, after testing it, you nod your head approvingly, remember: You've had a mere taste of things to come. VOLVO ;
