New York. July 26.-Terry Turner
has emitted a loud wail over the
fact that he has been released by
the Cleveland American league club.
He claims that Lee Fohl, Cleveland
manisger, has consistently treated
him with injustice and that if it
were not for this fact he would be
playing shortstop now for the In
dians, or eect. d base, with Wan!by
covering the short field. The height
of injustice was reached. he avers.

was sent to shortstop to replace Ray
Chapman when the latter was itll
jured, leaving Turner on the bench.'
To which the Cleveland club makes
reply that Turner has been prac
lically valueless to the Indians for'
four years, in spite of the fact that
far a number of years "Cotton Top"
was known everywhere as the best
ilffielder in the American league.
Turner also spilled a long protest
over the fact that when he was re
leased last fall the release was re
called, leaving him the property of
the Cleveland club. instead of per
nmlting him to dicker with other'
clubs for a 1919 berth.
Turner, until his release, was one
of the oldest players in the American
league, in point of service. His first
major league engagement was with
the Pirates, but it was of brief dura
-ion and he was shunted to Colum
bus ini the American league, with
whllich organization lie remained.

boosted himt up again in 1904. He

the Americo-Liberians. There was

It is possible to live in Liberia with

On the other hand, not a few of the
