Perry Case Threatens Big Baseball
War?Tener May Quit?Yankees Break Even Tener Hits Johnson In Letter to League Says He Will Serve No Longer as Member of National Commission Unless Perry, Pitcher of Athletics. Is Turned Over to Braves War clouds are rapidly forming on the baseball horizon. John v. Toner, president of the .National League, fired the first signal rocket calling his cohorts to arms yesterday morning, and Ban B. Johnson, presidenl of the American League, responded in the afternoon with a '..,_-.,- blast which makes it more than probable that hostilities between ?he two organizations will break out tit any moment. The casus belli, as announced by Tener, is the case of one Scott Perry, a pitcher, now with the Philadelphia Athletics, who was awarded t? the Boston Kravcs by veto of the National Commission. The real iUse of the threatened conflict, however, appears to be much deeper ,han a squabble over the services of a mere pitcher, however good he .-..?y be. For some time the relations between? the two leagues, or ratnor between the ' crucial? of the two, have not been of the cordial and friendly sort. Trouble ins beer, brewing fo? some months, and ng&rralh those responsible have chosen ?i time whoa the fate of the game itself is banging in the balance to air their ?jjle grievance >. Letter His Medium [he rocket sent skyward throughout bRsebaUdom by Tener v>as in the form , of a letter to "the residents of the Na- i tiopal League clubs, in which he noti? ced them he would have no further dealings with the National Commis? sion, of which he is a member. The letter criticises the American ; League with a violation of the national agreement and quotes the president of the latter organization as advising the commission when the Perry verdict was announced that "under no circum? stances or condition will Perry be turned over to the Boston (National League) club." Tener further states: ; "The case above referred to probably $s the first instance where a major league club has violated its agreement : by appealing the decision of the com? mission to n civil court." "? besr leave therefore." continues President Tener, "to advise you that hereafter I will give no attention or . consideration to any cases submitted to which the American League is a party." The loiter in full reads: "On the 12th of last month the Na? tional Commission, after careful con? sideration of all evidence, made de? cision in what is known as the Scott Perry case, and with which you are familiar, resulting in the awarding cf that player to the Boston c'.ub of this league. "As soon as the president of the American League had knowledge of the Unding he advised the commis? sion as follows: 'Lender no circum? stance or conditions will Perry be turned over to the Boston club.' Shortly thereafter the Philadelphia ciub of the" American League took the case to the courts of Cleveland ? and askc?! for and received an order restraining the . commission from putting its decision into effect and setting the date of July 20 for a i??'.&! nearinfr of the case. Ruling Is Final 'Under the terms of the National 3trre?nnni the ruling in any case brought before it in which it has ' jurisdiction is final. ?The ca*e above referred to is probably the first instance where a major league club has violated its agreement in baseball law by appeal? ing the decision of the commission to the civil court?. "In my opinion, the defiance of our laws by the Philadelphia club of the American League constitutes such a breach of tie agreement and good faith that this league can no longer with honor continue its representa? tive on the National Commission. I beg ?cave, therefore, to advise you that hereafter I will give no atten? tion or consideration to any cases submitted to which the American League is a party. We cannot con? tinue to maintain our honor and self respect by dealing with those who consider our agreements and baseball lav,- as mere 'scraps ,of paper.' "Baseball finds itself, with regard to its business, in an unfortunate position, due to war conditions. Nevertheless, it is most important to keep our house in order so that when business is adjusted to normal conditions it may be prepared for its share of prosperity, and that with honor." ATLANTIC CITY. N. J? July 9.? John K. Tener, president of the National League, put the survival of organized baseball squarely up to Ban Johnson and the American League here to-day when he declared that unless Connie Mack, manager of the Athletic.-;, promptly obeyed the ruling of the Na? tional Commission on the Scott Perry" case and turned the pitcher over to the Boston National League club he would no longer serve as a member of the commission, the supreme court of baseball. ? , "Here is my position," said Pr?s- '? ident Tener. "The merit3 of the case ! are inconsequential. The big issue . |? not who shall own Scott Perry; it j8 whether the supreme court of base? ball is indeed such. I decline to serve ': on a body which cannot enforce its ? own rulings, a body which is r?pudi?t- | ed by individuals who have agreed to ar.d created it. j "With the National Commission re- ' pudiated the national aerroement is ! Bimply a 'scrap of paper.' " "Does this mean that you will re? sign as president of the National League if the organization does not! back you up in your stand, or in the : Went of the league backing you up does ?t mean war with the American . <eaf?ue?" President Tener was asked. "War or no war?Hght is right and ?

History of Perry Case and What Causes Wrangle COTT PERRY first attracted the attention of the big league scouts while play? ing with the Atlanta Club of the Southern Association in 1917. The Boston Braves bought Perry under an optional agree? ment for $2,000. According to the evidence submitted to the National Com? mission, Perry deserted the Braves in June, 1917, after the Boston club had paid $500 of the purchase price. Early this year Perry re? turned to the Atlanta Club and was sold to the Philadelphia Americans, with which team he is now playing. The Boston club put in a claim for the player a few weeks ago and the matter was taken before the National Commission, which decided on June 12 that Perry belonged to the Braves. The vote of the commission reaching this decision was 3 to 2, President Ban Johnson of the American League and R. H. Rough, president of the South? ern Association, not concurring. Upon the announcement of the commission ruling Connie Mack, manager of the Philadelphia American League Club, obtained a court injunction preventing the Boston club from interfer? ing with the activities of Perry until the case should come up for court judgment. President Tener of the Na? tional League say? that unless Perry is declared the property of the Boston Nationals, he (Tener) will quit the National Commission, and unless upheld by the National League will quit baseball. Ban Johnson, president of the American League, .says Tener expects to resign as head of the National League and that the National League will have little trouble in filling his position. also here for the Elks' convention, de? clared that he had absolutely nothing to say about Mr. Tener's announced policy. Mr. Herrmann's attitude was that, of a man entirely washing his hands of responsibility. CHICAGO. July P. President Ban Johnson of the American League, reply? ing to the statement of John K. Tener, president of the National League, that he would have no further dealings with the National Baseball Commission in any cases in which the American League is a part, said to-night that he feared no break in the relations with the National League, as he understood President Tener would shortly resign. "The contemplated resignation of President Tener from the presidency of the National League occasioned me no surprise," stud President Johnson. "From advices I have received from several sources, the course he has taken is absolutely necessary for the welfare of baseball, in view of the iact that he devoted so little attention to the affairs of the game. "Morally and technically. Manager Mack of the Philadelphia club can be justified in the position he has taken in the Perry case. Governor Tener has on one or two occasions been a party t<> decisions of the commission that seemed unfair and absurd to nie. but. I never accepted that as an excuse for de? clining to serve as a member of that body. "1 presume the parent body will find no difficulty in ably fulfilling the posi? tion Governor Tener has finally deter? mined to vacate." ? 0' ' - Women's Tennis Tourney Aids War Relief Fund Miss Elisabeth H. Moore, former na? tional woman champion, and Mrs. Percy Wilbourn conducted a highly successful women's round robin pro? gressive lawn tennis tournament yes? terday on the clay courts of the New York Tennis Club, at 233th Street find Broadway, with a total of thirty entries. The fixture was held for the benefit of the National Tennis Women's War Relief Association, and a tidy sum was collected for the war fund. Mrs. Albert Humphries, of New Ro? chelle, won fust prize, with a total of 43 panics, while close behind came Miss Helen Allison, 42; Mrs. W. H. Pritch ard, 42. und Mrs. Samuel P. Waring, 40.

McGraw Calls in Hubbell JOPLIN, Mo., July 9.?"William Hub bell, pitcher, was ordered to report to the New York Nationals at Pittsburgh in a message from Manager McGraw to-day. Hubbell is owned by the New York Club, but was sent to Kansas City of the American Association this year and later to the Joplin Club, of the W?etorn T>?teue. which closed its sen S Patriotic Fire Sweeps Crowd At Aqueduct National Colors, Winning Race, Stirs Thousands to Prolonged Cheering l he Kaiser, speaking of the Amcri-I ? can army, said it was made up of mer ! canary men, and therefore was worth- j less as a fighting unit. If the man- j who-is-afrald-of-his-Bon had been at j the Aqueduct racetrack yesterday he would have witnessed a scene after the finish of the fifth race which would , have taught him a lesson and caused ! his mustache to wither and droop. j Garbage, carrying the red, white and | blue racing colors of Major E. B. Cas ! sntt, had scarcely Hashed past the win- ? ! ning post in front when a demonstra- j ; tion began which rolled on and on and | increased in volume of sound until the j air was torn asunder with yens and cheers which lusted fully ten minutes. ! No similar demonstration has taken ; place on a race-trace in this country m the last two years that has equalled ! in intensity and patriotism that at j Aqueduct yesterday. It was a tribute | of affection for the colors of Old Glory. i it was also a mark of respect for i .Major Cassett, a loyal American and i a graduate of West Point. Garbage, the winner, was merely an incident, i It. was no big event this race that called forth the jubilant cheers of the ! crowd. It was merely a selling race , over the mile and a sixteenth course. , As a contest it could be dismissed with j a few lines, because there was really I no contest. The calibre of the horses | which took part in the race was so ? poor that only a starving Hun would ? have given them more than a second j glance. Air Man Favored Three horses made up the field of ; contestants Air Man. Garbage and Bar j of Phoenix. Air Man, not more than : a fourth rate selling plater, was con i sidered so much better than his op ; ponents that he was made an odds-on ; favorite at 1 to 3. Garbage was quoted ; at 3 to 1 and Bar of Phoenix at 8 to 1. ; 'l hese odds tell how much the men of the odds considered the chances of , Garbage and Bar of Phoenix. To Air Man was practically conceded the purse. Garbage was making his first appear? ance of the season. In fact, he had | not raced much last year, and Major Cassatt kept him only btcause he has * always been a favorite with Mrs. Cas ; satt. Garbage, an erratic gelding of ! uncertain temperament, has at times ; in the dim and forgotten past shown ! good form. He had a concession of ! ten pounds of actual weight from Air [ Man. i This was a big concession to Gar ; bage, because when he is good and at i top form he can beat Air Man at even i weights. But the question in the I minds of the racegoers was: "How good is Garbage?" Nobody seemed to ? know; therefore, the layers, With a reckless courage .which is foreign to them when they know a horse has a chance, offered 3 to 1 against him. Many Bet on Garbage Many in that crowd of 9,000 per? sons bet on Garbage. Some were in JUienced to do so because of his old prestige, but most of them because he carried the red, white and blue. This particularly was the case with the women. Sentiment, swayed them. They were patriotic and would have no other horse as their favorite. The way they talked about Garbage and praised him one would think he had suddenly been transformed into Cudgel, one of the best racehorses on the American turf. The crowd was fairly sizzling with excitement when the three horses pa? raded to the post. All the applause was for Garbage. When he dashed to the front a running lire of comment, a machine tattoo of verbal bullets, ac? companied him on his trip. "Go on, Bed, White and Blue!" such were the yells of the women. They did not call him by name. The colons were domi ! nant. As though spurred to his best | efforts by the cheers of the crowd, Gar? bage held his lead down the back stretch, around the turn and into the I homestretch. Air Man, the favorite, was pinched 'off by Bar of Phoenix as the horses made the turn out of the hackstretch. That settled Air Man's chances, for he dropped back last, sulked and would not try his best for the remainder of the trip. Garbage kept in front, and though hard pressed at the finish by Bar of Phoenix managed to hold an ad ! vantage of a length to the end. Band Leads in Demonstration The horses had scarcely dashed home i when the band struck up one of the finest quicksteps ever written?"Three Cheers for the* Red, White and Blue!" ; It was the: signal for the crowd to give vent to their feelings. And, oh, boys, how they yelled! And the women, too, were not "at all backward. Hats were thrown in the air, the women waved their handkerchiefs, while the men ? roared their approval. It was the first :time this year that the red, white and ! blue racing colors of Major Cassatt had i won, and the racegoers took advantage ?of it to show their affection for the colors. To say that Major Cassatt was de? lighted is to make a mild statement. His horses have won many turf classics, but not one of them has afforded him the keen pleasure that Garbage did yes : terday. It was the demonstration that ?made the triumph a notable one. He : had just arrived at the track a few i minutes before the race was called. 1 "If I had missed that race and that 'demonstration," he told some friends, ? "I would have been the most disap : pointed man in America to-day."

I Huggins s Men Again ; Take Second Place Polo Grounders Come From Behind Twice to Win First Battle?Lose Sunset Finish Through Poor Base Running By Charles A. Taylor The Polo Grounds is no place to take an afternoon nap when the Yankees are there. When the Giants are performing' on the home lot very often it happens that a fellow can get a few innings of refreshing sleep. In fact, it has been the custom this season of a large percentage of the fans to go up and watch the Giants with this idea of a possible nap in mind. The score at the opening encounter was'' 0 to 1 in favor of the home boys, while the ia--'t battle of the twin bill went against them by a 4-3 count after ten innings. As the Red Sox beat the In? dians the Muggins nine jumped into second place. The Yanks came from behind in both games, and the l(),U00 present were kept in a state of frenzy during the entire afternoon. See-saw in the First The first contest was one of those see a\v affairs, the Yankees being forced ' o overcome one-run leads twice before they put over the winning tally. The bosnien were Caldwell for the Huggins men and Dan forth and Cicotte for the White Sox. The Chicago twirlers were fount) for ten hits, including triples by Red.

Un? fortunately for Kay, one of the blows struck against him was a home run into the light field stand by Eddie Col- ; lins. This ciout, which scored Leibold as well as Collins, put the White Sox one run in the lead. The three-base hit by Elmer Miller, which came in \ the eighth, brought two runners across ; the plate and won the gamo for the ? Yanks. The Muggins crew scored two runs in the second, after two men had been re? tired on Bodie's single and steal, a base ' on balls to .Miller and Waiters's safety to left. The visitors went this one bet? ter ?<i the third as a result of Schalk's single to centre, a sacrifice hit to Dan i'orth; a single by Leibold and Eddie Collins's smash for the circuit. The Yankees tied the score in *he ' fourth, u single by Pratt and atriple ; to right centre by Bodie manufactur- j ing the run. The White Sox shot into ? the lead again in the seventh when they tallied once, following a base on | balls to J. Collins, a sacrifice hit. a ? steal and a single by McMuIlin. The ' hour? team tied ihings up once more in 1 heir hail of the seventh. With one ? out Miller singled to left, advanced to third on a long foul "nit by Hyatt, who batted for Wallers, and scored on Caldwell's single to centra. Yanks Sew Up Came In the eighth inning the Yanks sewed tip the game, waiting until two men had expired before they began their I assault on Cicotte, who had replaced Danforth on the mound. Pipp singled to left. Bodie was hit by a pitched ball and then Miller inserted his triple, scoring Pipp arid Bodie. Slim Love was the Yankee pitcher for the second game, his rival boxraan being old Joe Benz. Both twirlers were pounded hard and Love was taken out in the eighth for the pinch-hit? ting Caldwell. Robin3on pitched the ninth and part of the tenth innings and Finncran finished the game. The White Sox scored their first run ! in the second, thanks to two doubles, o lie hit by -Ta cobs, the White Sox catcher, and the other issuing from the bat of Pitcher Ben?. The. Rowland men added two more runs in the fifth, singles by Leibold. E. Collins and Eis? berg and a stolen base being the con-j Lributing agents. Tho Yankees collected their first j counter in the sixth when they had ] a fine opportunity to do much more damage, but failed by reason of some poor base running by Ai Walters. Walters opened the inning with a single to left, and although Leibold had the ball in his hands when A! rounded first the Yank catcher keDt right on going, to be thrown out at second. Slim Love followed with an? other safe blow to the same field and ?vent to second on Gillhooley's hit ?o centre. Peck walked, filling the bases. Baker grounded out to Risberg, Love scoring. Weaver threw out Pratt. The Yankees tied the score in the ? ninth and again poor base running lost '.hem the chance to win. Baker beat ut a hit to Khbcrg, went to third <->n Pipp's single to right and scored while M.-Mullin was throwing out B'-?die. Miller singled to centre, tallying P;no with the lying run, and took second on the throw-in. Wa'ters singled to left and Miller foolishly tried to score on the blow. He was thrown out at the plate. Tito White Sox put over the winning run in the tenth on Risberg's double ; nd a -ingle by J. Collins. Ham Hyatt was once more injected into thf pas? time as a pinch hitter in the Yanks' half of the tenth, but Ham merely popped to Risberg. GUhoo'ey fli^d to | E.

Yesterday afternoon, on the clay courts of the Terrace Club, of Flatbush, Cecil won his way into the final round of the metropolitan junior championship singles by defeat? ing ilaroid Taylor, playing-through champion, bv a score ox 8?C, 1?-^6, 8?6. There was no hint of fluke in the tow-headed boy's sensational victory. Facing what seemed almost certain de? feat in the third set, when Taylor led at 4?0 on pames, Cecil proved the metile of the man within by staging the most spectacular uphill battle ever seen in n junior championship tourna? ment. Kea?zirg that only the most daring tactics would suffice to stave off impending disaster, the stripling be p-an a brilliant session of playing at the net Following in on service with a rush, Cecil got into position for the volley in splendid stylp and literally carried the champion off his feet by th? sever? ity, speed and remarkable accuracy with which he shot the ball into the corners of the court or down the side lines. Taylor, taken by surprise at the_ sudden turn of the tide, lost con? trol of his strokes temporarily-, and the little blond whirlwind on the other side of the net swept straight throue'h the next five games in a row. bringing the games' score to 5?4 before the hard pressed champion could call a halt to make it 5?ali. But by this time young Donaldson had scented victory, and there were a dash and vigor about the manner in which he went into the rallies that boded il! for the title holder. The games alternated at t?- -5 and 6?all, with Cecil holding the advantage. Ho then took the next, to make it 7?6, making his severe "topped" service count to the utmost, and began the fourteenth and final game with Taylor serving. T'ne champion was palpnblv nervous at this, staere and his strokes were L'oinp raggedly as he attempted to pull h'mself out of a difficult situation. Donaldson never let an opportunity go by. however, and fenced for his open? ings with the skill of a veteran. His own anxiety to score on placements caused him to overshoot the lines by inches only, at times, but his winning sho*s we-e sufficient to pull him throue'h. and when Taylor made a dou? ble fault on his last service, Cecil won the match and his greatest victory on the courts. For a moment the. youthful victor was in a flutter of embarrassment, but an instant later he threw his racquet to the ground and ran forward to shake hands with Taylor across the net. The champion congratulated his conqueror and the boys left the court to the sound of loud applause from the gallery. While this match overshadowed all else on the Terrace Club courts yes? terday, there was plenty of good tennis in the other enchanters. Frank Ander? son, Long Island and North Side cham? pion, who is regarded as a probable finalist in the other half of the draw, came through by defeating Arthur Bacharach at 8?C. C,?2. Young Ander? son was not travelling at his best pace and had a'l he could do to take the onening set. apparently not being nerv;d up to his greatest efforts. In the last set. however, he brought to hear some of his sparkling volleys and beautiful drives down the side liner, and Bacharach was forced to acknowl? edge defeat after a worthy struggle for the honors. Gerald Donaldson, jr., Cecil's elder brother and new Canadian junior cham? pion, eliminated Lionel Lefkowitz at i??;_'. (1-3, for a place in the round be? fore the semi-finals, while Gerald Emerson, the hard-hitting youth from New Jersey, took the measure of Percy Kynaston at li?:>, C?-1.

Former Cowboy Brings Victory To Navy Yard John R. March, a former cowboy from the wild and woolly town of Duncan, Okla., showed himself to be an athlete of exceptional ability in earning the in? dividual honors in the dual track and li o ! d m.eet between the Armed Guard of the Brooklyn navy yard and the Fed? ern! Rendezvous on Brooklyn Athletic Field yesterday. March represented the gunners of the Armed Guard, and hi-; versatility enabled his team to win by 53 points to 20.
