Many of the class just mentioned who
were aided by the general calamity
shrieker, put the Fourth of July down as
the time for the 1 1 k-ague to go to pieces,
but from the way things are beginning to
shape up again the league will pull
through the season if only the four Illi
nois clubs are in it. A meeting of the
league directors is being held in Chicago
today, the outcome of which is not yet
known, but in all probability the two In
diana towns will remain in, as both have
plenty of money back of tnem, the only
difficulty being that they do not
think they are being treated fairly.
is to be hoped that President
McKee and Secretary McCaull will com
promise their differences and allow things
to again settle down so that the league
affairs can be conducted without a con

This will, of course, help out the club
financially, but will certainly weaken it
very much in playing strength. g
League Director Moore, of the Twin

meeting, and on the result of which de

two-eyed league will weather the storm
of invasion from without and dissension
from within. As far as the the matter of
finance goes each team seems to be well
fixed, and as stated above, if the organi
zation should collapse it will be due en
tirely to a wrangle among the officials of
the league as to who shall constitute the
power behind the throne. The league so
far has made an enviable record, with
much faster company than it has ever

she decide to resign the position she has
acceptably filled here during the past nine
years. She carries with her the kindest
wishes of appreciative patron3, pupils
