BALL PLAYERS IN
WHY DON'T THEY DO SOMETHING NEW?
Organization Has as Purpose
Betterment of Conditions
Boston, Mass., Aug. 15. Coopera
tion with club owners, the national
commission, and the other powers ia
baseball Is the keynote of the frater
nity, brotherhood, or "Ancient Order,"
whatever legal title its charter may
contain when granted, which has been
Quietly formed among the major
league ball players in the last year
and the formal organization of which
is set for this fall, probably during
th next world's series.
Instead of the belligerency with
which the Infant generally is credited
nnd the compulsory elevation and reg
ulation of players' salaries, which is
believed to be its cnief object, the bet
terment of present relations between
the diamond workers and thir bosses,
improvements In the physical and
nvr.tal condition of the players, and
in' identally th elevation of the sport j
itseir are tne main purposes of the
rn-n who have done most to get the
Willi th" question of salaries the.
fraternity will have nothing whatever
to do. Irs authors are wise enough
to understand that an attempt to mon
key Wth players' salaries by estab
lishing scales of any kind would only
work harm in the end. St) far as the
organization is concerned, salaries
will remain an individual and person
al matter between player and club
owner, as heretofore.
To avoid the idea of unionism and i
wage si-ales, it was decided to avoid j
calling the organization anything that '
savored of "players' union." It has I
been organized along the lines of a j
fraternity or protective order, with ;
the secrecy left out. The Initiation
f -e is nominal --$." so as to keep out I
no one on financial considerations, j
and the annual dues- yet to be agreed '
upon will be equally within the !
reach of high and low salaried play- :

How does the organization expect I
tc help 1rie ,all players if not by boost- !

Walking from coast to coast is now being regarded as a rather everyday sort of stunt. There are now
enough cross-country pedestrians to fill a ball ground at a double header. One comic artist suggests that those
