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

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
"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
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.' "

History of Perry
Case and What
COTT PERRY first attracted
the attention of the big
league scouts while play?
ing with the Atlanta Club of
the Southern Association in
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
President Tener of the Na?
tional League say? that unless
Perry is declared the property
of the Boston Nationals, he

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

no difficulty in ably fulfilling the posi?

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
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
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
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
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
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."

Polo Grounders Come From Behind Twice to Win First
Battle?Lose Sunset Finish Through Poor
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
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

they put over the winning tally. The

Displays Brilliant Ability
at the Net
By Fred Hawthorne
The name of Cecil Donaldson, the
fourteen-year-old phenomenon from
Borough Park, Brooklyn, takes its
place to day among those of the great
"men" of the lawn tennis world, past
and present. 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,
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
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
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. The doubles
will start to-day.

John R. March, a former cowboy from
