PLAYERS GET TOO MUCH COIN
Magnates Anxious to Revise Rules for

If certain baseball magnates have
their wny tho rules governing tho di
vision of world's series receipts wilt
be radically amended.
It will bo suggested that tho mon
ey set nsldo for the players of tho
two contending teams In tho world's
series bo limited to a guarantco for
each man instead of a percentage.
No less a person than August Herr
mann, chairman of the National base
ball commission, favors a plan by
which each member of tho winning
team In tho world's series will re
oelvo $1,000 while each member of the
losing team will get $750.
This money, according to tho Herr
mann idea, will be deducted from 60
per cent, of the first four games, the
balance to be distributed equally
among the players of the other four
teen major league teams.
If such an amendment should be
adopted, tho world's series would de
velop into a big benefit for all tho
major leaguo players.
It Is also hinted that tho national
commission may find its 10 per cent,
rakeoff reduced one-half. Tho com
mission's sharo of tho spoils has stead
ily increased each year until $50,000
was set asldo after tho recont strug
