The Game's Travail
If a casual visitor from Mars or the

Btatea it would be his Immediate opin
ion that sport In this country was
swiftly speeding: to wrack and ruin.
In baseball he would see a wild smear
of magnates, players and lawyers' rals
Ing the well-known dickens; among tho
colleges he would hear a loud Wall and
uproar concerning summer ball play
ing; he would hear the charges of pro
fessionalism in golf and the track
game, attached to charges and counter
charges among members of the Tennis
He would hear the charges of com
mercialism In regard to football, con
cerning the employment of paid
coaches and the rearing of mighty
stadiums and Immense gate receipts.
"Sport In this country," he would say,
"Is going to Grandold Gehenna on the

lead to this opinion, but after all It Is
only a natural development.
Twenty years ago sport in tho U. S.
A. wns a limited arrangement. There
were few tennis players and still fewor
golfers. Baseball was staged upon a
far smaller scalo. Most of thoso inter
ested In Bport were spectators. And
only a small portion of the populaco
were Interested to any degree even as
But within the last 10 years condi
tions have been overturned. There has
been a vast and sudden rush to sport
from every walk of existence. The man
today Is tho exception who Isn't at
tached to some game, cither as a parti
cipant or spectator. This now interest
has brought millions of dollars Into tho
game and tho wild rush of newly ar
rayed enthusiasm has upset the order
of things. Hence a readjustment was
due and a rearranging was in order.
Then and Now
At this Juncture fully $150,000,000 is
being spent on sport in America. The
change has been sudden and over
whelming. Borne time ago we were talk
ing baseball with a club owner who
held a major league franchise in 1890.
That season, he said there were only
13 men on his payroll and not a man
was getting over $2400 a year. Yet he
lost money and was glad to sell out at
a small deficit.
There were simply not enough fans
in those days to Justify any heavy ex
penditures. This club owner's payroll
was about 120,000 a season. Today the
average big league payroll Is over
In spite of tho fact that thousands
every year are taking up golf, tennis
or other games of their own, new fans
have been added and the rush of all
this money has naturally upset the old
arrangement of things. The player be
lieves each magnate Is making a mil
lion dollars. The magnate believes the
player is being overpaid and Is raking
In all the surplus kale. It was only
natural that a mix-up should follow,
hut readjustment Is now under way
and It will be only a matter of a short
while before the situation will be han
dled in the proper way. All that is
necessary is that the readjustment be
made as quickly as possible and the
tangle be unravelled without too long
a delay. But don't get it Into your bean
that Interest in sport is waning. It Is
only at its first rush. For the man who
once finds the great benefit to be ob
tained by a close Interest in some good
game Is a life member.
