Spitter Ban Is Own Affair of A. A. • mm Coast Hurler Breaks Down “Agreement” m m m “Wampum” Makes Appearance in Sports B“ ; LEAGUE experts have been compelled to pull their punches on Commissioner Judge Landis again and re tractions are in order. Once before the major scribes climbed on “hissoner” and razzed him for not slashing his fat salary. Later it was learned he had put through a vol untary cut of $25,000 and said nothing about it, all of which caused the scriveners to back track and throw him a bouquet. A few weeks ago there was announcement to the effect Clarence Mitchell, veteran southpaw spitball pitcher, had a chance to hurl for Minneapolis ‘‘if Landis would lift the ban on the moist delivery in the American Association.” Dave Bancroft, new Miller pilot, a former team mate of Clarence, was willing to take on the old timer. A cry arose in big league cities panning Landis for not stepping right out and making an exception to the rule for Mitchell. The major scribes became bitter about it and several pointed out that the judge was stand ing in the way of employment for a grand guy who had served baseball long and faithfully. Landis kept silent, bore up under the printed onslaught and permit ted the writing boys to put their necks in the noose. A. A. writers were aware that Landis and the big leagues had no jurisdiction in the mat ter. Big league scribes finally learned the true facts in the case the other day. The ban on the spitter in the American Association is and was its own affair. The A. A. w'as the leader in the outlau-ing of the saliva ball, shine ball and other freak deliveries in 1920. Rex Dawson, Indianapolis, was one of the popular mainstay pitchers who lost out when the restriction went into effect. He was one of the league's first-flight flingers at the time. u a a a a a REPORTS SAY OLD SHELLY BEAT THE RAP THE sum of $450 a month was supposed to be top salary for players in the Pacific Coast League this year. “Gentleman's agreement,” by the club owners, it was announced. No player would be paid more than that amount; not a chance for the holdouts to win, it was said. The moaning of the Pacific had not a thing on the wailing of the athletes. Frank Shellenback, veteran Hollywood pitcher, received SBBS a month last year, according to the San Francisco News. He held up his end of the team’s success in his customary winning style. Now it is reported Bill Lane, Hollywood prexy, decide'd to make Shelly's case an exception to the rule and offered him $550, or SIOO more than the “gentlemen’s agree ment” called for. Some coast scriveners declared Shellenback declined the $450 first and then declined $550, fina#y reaching a compromise, which the “San Fran” News believes was S6OO or $650. Shelly is a box office attraction and is usually regarded as the leading twirler in the far west circuit. TRADING POST AT ROLLER TILT SUNDAY USED safety razor blades, wornout phonograph needles, stringless ukuleles, left-handed corkscrews and glass eyes are about the only things that will be barred as tokens of admission to Sunday afternoon’s roller polo game between Indianapolis and Ft. Wayne at Tomlinson hall. Due to the scarcity of two-bits pieces among the fans, the management has decided to establish a “trading post” at the front door, and accept “wampum” in exchange for a look at what promises to be a fast game of polo. Clothing and canned goods will be the most acceptable form of barter, but, in lieu of these, anything that may be sold for 25 cents or more will be accepted, it is said. City Purchasing Agent A1 Losche will be on hand to appraise the “wampum.” Captain Otto Ray will take charge of the stuff after the game and see that it gets into the proper relief channels. For those of the fans who still have two-bits tickets are on sale all over town. A1 Feeney has charge of sales at the statehouse, Ira Hay maker is looking after tickets at the courthouse, while Gar Davis and Hendricks Kenworthy are bearing down at the city hall. The polo game will start at 3 p. m. There will be an amateur tilt at 2. COLONELS “SAVED” DESPITE RECEIVERSHIP DIAMOND fans of Louisville were “down in the dumps” Friday as the saying goes, following announcement Thursday that the Louis ville Baseball Company had gone into voluntary receivership. They were under the impression that professional baseball was to be a thing of the past in Coloneltown and that Parkway field would grow up in weeds, Today it was a different story. Thomas A. Barker, appointed re ceived for the defunct baseball company, announced there is no doubt in his mind that the Colonels will be permitted to operate. Receiver Barker works under orders from Judge Lafon Allen's court. The receiver started plans to protect creditors and at the same time give Louisville fans a baseball team. Some of the players already have ar rived in Louisville to open spring training preparations Monday. They will be permitted to go on with plans as per schedule, it was said today. a a tt a tt tt THE rumor that A1 Simmons’ hand was pierced by a broken golf club is incorrect, according to George Earnshaw, of the Athletics, for several years a team mate of Al's before the big slugger was sold to the White Sox. George says Simmons took a swing with an iron and the club struck a rock, the shaft cracked and the vibration sent pain tingling through Al's right arm. The pain failed to respond to treatment, Earn shaw declares, and finally the doctor ordered three infected teeth ex tracted, which eased the trouble, but complete relief was not felt for some time. tt tt tt tt tt tt Few factories are running in these wide United States, except the rumor factory, which is never idle.
