o'clock with a toast to the league's

composed of B. F. Shibe of Philadel
phia. J. I. Taylor of Boston. V. H.
Yawkey of Detroit, and R. Hedges
of St. Ltmis. The directors are chos
en by clubs, which alternate each
year. It was Washington's turn to
have a place on the board, but. in the
absence of a permanent organization
in that city, Mr. Shibe was reappoint
ed. The league voted President John
son a continuous salary of $10,000 a
year by acclamation, which resolved
itself into something resembling a col
lege yell. A stt of resolutions intro
duced by Secretary Bruce of the na
tional commission was passed to make
more specific the league's bylaws re
garding the securing of waivers when
it is desired to dispose of surplus
players. It has the effect of doing
away with indefinite waivers and tho
securing of waivers on newly drafted
minor league talent during the win
ter. This will prevent to some extent
the practices of covering up promising
young players by American league
clubs as favors to minor league man
