UPDATE : got home and I tried the clear plastic tube suggestion... What I noticed was rather puzzling....Once I started the car, the clear hose went flat... Looks like the carb vacuum can't suck anything. When I popped the PCV valve off the cover, the little rattle inside the valve was stuck upwards. I guess from the suction. However If I put my finger tip on the PCV valve it quickly sucks my finger. So I know its sucking in the air. I guess the hose is just flimsy....I didn't see any oil going up the hose.

So now i tried the second suggestion of spraying carb spray into the valve cover hole for appx 15 seconds. The idle did not jump up either.

The valve covers do not have baffles. I can see straight down into the head....

All of this was tried under idle. I didn't drive the car around....
