The Federal Is coming strongly.
President James A. Giliaore and
Secretary Lloyd Rlckart say the
league la prepared to spend a for

The only law the Federal lies
violated is that one which organ

complacency. And tlie public to
day does n«it recognise the right
i,l' ilii- National, American and
thi-11 minor league associates to

The attack upon the baseball
(ioliath by the baseball Oavid is
centered in the vulnerable point
of the big fellow's armor—tha
reserve clause —and before the
mil season opens thla will be
threshed out in court to deter
mine whether a baseball contract
is worth the paper it is printed

Rather the sort of players they
are after and play good baseball
the fans will be with them.
The Federal, If successful, can
force upon baseball a sense of its
di-bt to the public, something few
magnates have realized. It cnn
give recognition to young players
who have heretofore been forced
to seek allegiance with organized
baseball and accept whatever
terms were offered, and, having
signed a contract, be sent from
team to team, without having a

With the Federal ia the field
and outside of the fold, this will
cease and organized baseball will,
If forced, treat players more like
men aud less like chattels.

While for convenience the plays

These plays are all well tried,
