the action <>f the I'rep S- ln.n League
in refus.i'g to admi' the baseball tearn

was purely arbitrary.
It is all nonsense to SUggSal that
plans for the season ot Hal assn SS
matured eariy in uanuarv that any
inconvenience worth mentioning would
be suffered by any of the Associations
composing the League by admitting
another Association at the time the
application of Hene<lictine ?'ollege was

baseball schedule had not then been
made up. and I doubt if ' Secretary

amounting to a hill of beans that
would have had to be change^ hy any
of the Associations in the League if
the application of Henedictine ( ollege
had been approved
The whole thing boiled right down
to brass tacks is ??imply this:?A
majority of the Associations in the
T'rep School League did rest want
Henedictine College t.n.pcte this
season for pennan? honors and I leaee
it to a fair minded and disinterested
