BASEBALL OUTLOOK IMPROVING
1 921 PROSPECTS ARE VERY GOOD
By JACK TBIOCK.
8W YORK. Jan. 12 Baseball mag-
nates. Dig and ZKtle, are preparing-
to enter another leaf immh
of prosperity, and, la the case of the
big majority, the era ahead will be a
peaceful one from present indications.
Since the recent baseball season
came to a close the magnates hare
adopted much useful legislation. The
selection of Judge K. 3C. Landis as
baseball's high commissioner and the
adoption of a new national agreement
covering a period of 25 years were
two important moves In the right di
rection The rowers Tested in Judge
Landis are far reaching, hut the men
who elected him to the high office he
liolds feel that their affairs are Id the
hands of a man fullly qualified to
handle them. Everybody Is satisfied
with Judge Landis.
Heydier Gets Increase.
The action of the National league
in extending president John Heydlers
term to 1324 with a generous Increase
in salary was another sound and saae
more that met with general favor.
Heydier has proven himself a sub
stantial, capable and methodical head
for the senior major1 just the Id ad
of a president the league has always
sought and while he may hare made
some mistakes ho cannot bo accused
of having committed errors that wore
He contends that he had bo
Xesntl proof in the Chase ease In
MIS and la faee of the absence
of sueh proof he did the only
thing that he couM have done
when he ncqultled the player or
eharges of gamhUnf made against
him. Had the Xatlonal league
been in possession of valid proof
against Chase It Is only logical to
heMeve that he would have been
expelled from the xrame at once.
On the ether hands if any National
league magnate or piayer did any
thing ta cover Chase's trail, that
asagnate or player committed a
grave mistake, for an expose of
Chase In 1918 would probably
have averted the 1019 world's

Nineteen- twenty-on e looms ahead

1020 season was a prosperous one for
nearly every clab In the country, and
even after baseball was placed under
a cloud by the expose of the White
Sox. major league games continued
to draw big crowds and the world's
series was played under ideal cos
ditiona. When the majors and minors get
together in Chicago this month for
their next big powwow It Is expected
that the new sgreensent between the

work on the side of a mountain, and
there was little space for kicking the
pigskin around. The linemen had no
bucking machines, and the backs were
sans tackling dummies, so Pittser sent
bis men up against huge boulders In
