Help from his friends

 

Manager Dallas Green and several Phillies players will go to bat for a friend Thursday night. Ed Com-pton voluntarily closed down his Log Cabin restaurant at Haddon Township, N. J., when a a number of diners became ill last month. He called in local and state health agencies, who found nothing amiss after an investigation lasting more than a week. The place has reopened and Green will be there for a 7 p.m. autograph party, along with general manager Paul Owens, Garry Maddox, Larry Bowa, Greg Luzinski, Mike Schmidt, Randy Lerch, Bob Boone and other players. Admission will be free.
