that any deal is on, or has even been
considered, for the sale of Frank Ba
ker to the Yankees.
The latest story of peace in base
ball is about the best pipe dream that
has been stoked up so far. Accord
ing to this yarn, which escaped from
Philadelphia, the Feds were to be
taken in by organized ball and pro
tected under the national agreement.
In return for this they were to re
move their teams from Chicago and
St Louis and clubs were to be placed
in Detroit and Washington. The plan
to invade New York, also a dream,
was to be give up. What was to be
doie with Newark and Baltimore had
not been decided before the shot in
the arm wore out its effects.
Isn't that a swell yarn? Detroit
is not the best ball town on the map,
by any means. When the Tigers win
the crowds turn out, but they refuse
to patronize a loser. Which means
both Fed and American teams would
have to be fighting for the pennant all
the time or money would be dropped
in large chunks.
' 'The same goes for Washington.
The Nationals lost money until Clark
Griffith took the team and provided a
first division club. It won't support
two teams, even though both are
winners, and a couple of second divi
sion clubs would be flivvers. Wash-
ington has too much goo damateur
baseball, and the attraction of ama
teur baseball over poor major league
ball has been proved in Cleveland,
where the American and Association
teams have been neglected.
In spite of the impossibility of this
yarn, several so-called wise people af
fected to believe it untd Charley
Weeghman said he had never heard
about moving his club.
Federal officials will be suspicious
of the organized magnates in the fu
ture when peace talk is started. They
will remember last winter, when they
were double-crossed after acting on
the square themselves.

local lightweights, who will meet in.
