THE EVENING WORLD, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1922.. 27 YANKS ISSUE ULTIMATUM TO TWO STARS HOLDING OUT FOR RAISE W St. I ve. St. Second Baseman of Champions Returns Contract Unsigned for Second Time. IV Aaron Ward Is determined to Ikj paid $10,000 ii season for per forming at second buso for the Now York Americans, tho club man agement Is equally determined not to pay it to Ulm, and tho chief reason for 'this determination on the part of the Colonels Is that their payroll is as heavy now as they can comfortuoly stand for it to be. Despatched re ceived from Kort Smith, Ark., statu that tho second contract forwarded to AVard for his bignaturo had been sent buck unsigned. "Such being tho case," said Ed Bar row, business manager of tho Yan kees, "1 fear Aaron must begin a period of inactivity." Mr. Bariow is h practical man. Ho lets the dead past bury Its dead. A lilayer may havu been a wonder in 1921. but 1321 1'ci.orda make no base hits or put outs In 1U22 for Kdwurd. iimvever. when Til Huston, tho more talkative ot Uiu paying Colonels, backed up Mr. Barrow, IMnga Degan 10 iook bad for Ward of Tort Smith. "Mr. Ward Is not talking to the Yankees when he asks $10,000 a year through the newsp-ipers," said the Colonel. "We hive offered him a. Hue increase for a young ballplayer 'over hi last year's silary- We like him and his work, but he Is talking In figures that would mean rum for us or any ball club that tried to pay them. We will have to get along without Ward. Thoro are some luxuries that wo can't enjoy." Col. Huston didn't say it, but the tact that Mike McN'ally and "ChlcV Fewster, both of whom can play a rmart game at second base, have signed contracts probably influenced the In flexible, unyielding stand of Messrs. Huston and nnrrow. However, there's a bad Mutation In the Yank pitching corps. "Fiullft Joi" Euan and Sam Jones, obtained from the Doston lted Sox, feci that with their ad MAYS MUST LIVE UP. TO YANKEE CONTRACT OR REMAIN OUT OF GAME Carl Mays, pitching ace of tho champion Yankees and star twirler of the American League, will either carry out his contract, which does not expire until the end of the 1923 season, or else spend' his time in fishing end hunting In the Ozarks, according to the ultimatum the Yankee Colonels have delivered to him. Mays is reported to be getting $10,000 a year under his three year contract but he wants $15, 000 for 1922 besides a bonus, for winning a certain number of games. The Yankee owners are determined that he carry out his agreement. ISN'T IT THE TRUTH?
