Officials of the Government’s j Salary Stabilization Board con-! firmed that they have acted on; “certain requests” of the two Na tional League clubs. They refused to reveal details,' saying they had agreed to leave; such an announcement to the Dodgers and Giants. But sources in New York said; that the National league cham-, Dion Giants had asked for per-i mission to exceed Government; payroll ceilings by 5 per cent, andt the Dodgers had asked to be; allowed to top ceilings by 10 per cent. Apparently, most, if not all, of the requests of the two clubs were granted in decisions mailed out to them. This could not be con firmed, however. Under board rules there is no ceiling on how much a club may pay an individual player. But the club must keep its payroll within the total spent in (1) the year 1951, or (2) any single year from 1946 through 1950, plus 10 per cent of the year chosen. This rule is only tentative. But the board Is expected to adopt it as a permanent regulation at a meeting March 12, with certain amendments. One of the amendments is a new proviso exempting baseball “bo nus” payments from any ceiling. This means the bonus paid a play er for signing an original contract won’t be considered as compensa tion. The bonus exemption was one 3f the suggestions made to the board recently by John Kieran, former sports columnist of the New York Times, who conducted hearings on baseball salary regu lations in New York in early February. jffqreo Veteran Once iT bought Dead Boxes On TV Bout Tonight By lh.
