FOUR TOWN CIRCUIT ??,
STOUCH HAS ^?>EA
W. S. Lee Ha? Offered io Give
Anderson and Greenville $10
For Every Game Played
Tommie Stouch says that" an ama
teur association for baseball, compos
ed of tho towns of . Spartanburg,.
Greenville, Anderson abd Greenwood,
would pay aud Tommie Ought to know
because ho has been in the game long
enough to know all Mere is to know
about lt. Fans in Anderson have
been discussing the proposition for the
last few days and'a majority or them
seemed to think that the o^m~?iirvber
put through if Stouch will push lt
like be intends doing. .
D. C. Garvin said last night that he
had talked with Stouch while he was
in Greenvilie and that the veteran ball
player. ls strong for the organisation.
He .says that Stouch intends visiting
all the towns in the proposed circuit
and trying to get some interest arous
ed and says that that he has already
secured Greenville's consent to the
plan and '.that town will be ready to
go tn as soon aa.the other three will
be. It .is a foregone conclusion that
QUK...U?I.. -.11, ~2-A Al.--.-C
atlon a trial and therefore tho <pae#*? ?
tion is Bimply up to Anderson and I
Greenwood. Greenwood already nab; H
a ball team organized and it is thought I
ihat thc people there would ?usnaos
long before they would enter mich ail
lt has been pointed out that in auch
an organization as this, composed
largely of college men and amatuers
here at heme, with not more than two; I
professionals os tu? p*y roll, tho.
monthly expenses could not be Tory

on the Interurban and it would bo
possible to save hotel billa in almost
every instance. With the lowest raJX
road rate obtainable and co hotel '
bills to pay Ute expense of the lean gue I
should be low every month.
W. S. Leo of the Piedmont & North
ern linea bas agreed to give Anderson
antL Greenviiiu7gtb^**eacfr,r"tar every
game played and this would be a big
start on the ov?ry-day average ex
pense With this suth for a startor it
would not take more than 815 or $20
:.he sims pay. !
Tho plan to .be put into operation
here doea not. include paying the play
ers ? salary. U Would be ? co-opera
tive scheffii? entirely" anfct the players
would share equally what, .was made
out of the game. Therefore there
would be no heavy salary list hanging
over the heads of the promoters.
All in the world that the propos!-'
tion needs now ia for some one to
take charge of it and push it and the
new league , will be a reality. The
next day or BO will toll tho tal? and
if the moveca?Mit ls started Anderson
people are urged to buy a season tick
et when lt. io presented . and tn this
way UBdlst the movement.
