For Instance a combined population
of 400,(X)0 is necessary to give a Class

the minimum for Class C. The
Three-Eye league, as at present coa

or rather remain in Class B
in the matter of population, . ;1
though nobody disputes that it is en
titled to the higher rating on the sco;e
of quality of baseball furnished. The
Central association can never be
higher than Class C. Out of the two
circuits it will be impossible to make
better than one Class B league and

This is one of the dismal pictures

to finish in time for next season, it
will be far better to wait till next fall,
making only such changes as are ab

While Dick Kinsella since his re
turn to Springfield has been guilty of
some rash assertions, his idea of a
baseball circuit for next season is not
unreasonable. He says:
"I am in favor of a change in the
circuits of the Three-Eye and Central
leagues. My idea is to transfer
Quincy from the Central to the Three
Eye league and to give the Central or
the Iowa league Dubuque and Cedar
