Amateur sports always have been di

Baseball probably will continue the
uneven tenor of Its long nnd troubled
existence. The professionals will con

baseball Is so decidedly lacking In at

become accustomed to seeing high

no hold on the nation.

public will continue to patronize thu
professionals instead of staging Its own
