Ruppert and Huston Score When Order Is Signecl
for Taking of Testiinony in Cleveland to Ascer
tain President's Counection With Dunn's CluL
By W. J. Macbeth
The Yankees yesterday opened the h'eaviest lega] barrage thnt has
yet been directed against Ban Johnson in the Carl Maya Avar. In filing
the thrce additional suits of the four complaints in actions instituted
.mmediately after the annual meeting at the Biltmore December 10 ]a*t,
C'olonels Ruppert and Huston asked:
That Ban Johnson be relieved of his office as president, secretary
and treasurer of tho American League and a referee be appointed t'o
function that office.
That Ban Johnson be obliged to pay the New York American League
sjatn tno sum 01 ;>o<?u,uuu aamngcs.
That Ban Johnson and tne five so-i
calied "loyal" club owrters be rcstrained
irons doing ar.y further acts in aid of
what ia said to be tho purposo and
plan of the defendant' (Johnson*) to
injure the plalntiff and to rinvo it out
of basrtall.
These suits wcre brought by Mesars.
Pitch and Grant, as attorneys, and
Joseph S. Auerbach and Charles H.
Tuttie, as counsel, for th.e New York
tlub. Tho rirst of thc four suits in
questior. was filed last Saturday. It
asked an accounting by Mr. Johnson j
of his administration, with particular
rcferenco to the contract he entered
:nto with the Western Union Telegraph
Company for the privilcge of sending
baseball news and scorea from thc
American League basebaii parks.
Scorc Against Indians
Aside from the thrce new suits in
question the battiiiiir colonels scored
uhat they consider a favorable inove
in thc tight when Jrstice Vernon M.
Davi* yesterday slgned an order for
the takiny in Cleveland of the testi
mony of James C. Dunn, president;
Walter McNichols, secretary, and E. j
S. Barnard, business manager of the!
Cleveland ball club, and requiring the
Cleveland club to produce for inspec
tion its minute books. stock books and
other records concerning th.e financial
interest of Ban Johnson in that club
atnd concerning his participation in its
aJfairs. *
The suit for $500,000 damages al
ieges that Johnson conceived thc idea
of driving the local owners out of base?
ball aiid to that end committcd various
acts injfrrious to the New York club,
mcluding the suspension of Mays. It
???as chargcd, also, that by crroneous
Statcments he (Johnson'' jnfluenced
the Giants to write rcfusing t<> con
*;n;;e permission to the Yankees to use
the F'oio Grounds after 1920.
Mr. Johnson is also charged with
having made public certain plans which
the Vankec owners had for a new ball
park site, preventing its acquisition on
advantagcous terms.
In support of the allegation that Mr.
Johnson had conceived the idea of try- i
injr to forcc Colonels Ruppert and Hus- '
ton out of the American League the
complaint submitted a letter of Mr.
Johnson m the ti?c "loval" clubs, dated
August G, 1919, which was written
shortly after the Mays controversy
arose and after it had become evident
that thc New York club would resist
the order of suspension. The letter,
which wa3 marked "personal and con
fidential," will be found in part in th.e
accompanying hox.

Would Cut Off Salary
; The other suit seeks to restrain
Johnson from paying lo himself or re
ceiving any s>i!ary or eompensution
jand to require him to account for and
restore with .interesl all sums he ma.\
j have taken ?s salary sinco the annual
meeting of December 10 last This
complaint is based on tho constitution
of the league, which requires the elec
tion of president, secretary and ttvu^
ure.r annually.
Mr. Johnson was not so elected a*
the last annual meeting. He main
tained he had been elected to the three
offices for a tenn of twenty years in
1910, at a salary of $30,000 annuallv.
Ihough he had faiied to obey an order
oi the board of dire'etors to produce
any such documer.t, tho five "loyal"
club owners vindicated Johnson's re
ifusal to eall for the election of such
I officers.
1 It is alleged in the complaint that
Johnson, in violation of his obligations
and duties, has attempted to unsurp to
himself all power and authority in the
league; cites his attempt to drive Rup?
pert and Huston out of baseball; his
threats to punish the former board of
directors; his refusal to submit a
tabular statementof the games won and
K.sr. m t;,:. 1919 <.Pason; his blocking of
the appointment of a new Nationr.l
( ommission chairman and his effort to
prevent the annual meeting called by
the directors in this city. The com?
plaint attaches a resolution adopted
by the board at its annual meeting de
claring Johnson's offices forfeited.
In discus.-ing the aeticna yesterday
afternoon, Colonel Ruppert, president
of the Yankees, said:
"I want it clearly understood that
the New JTork Giants aro in no manner
tmplicated in this light. The fight is
directed against Ban Johnson alone,
and will be continued rigorously until
we have attained our vn<\<*. \Y*e hold
nothing but tho friendliesl feelings
. toward our rivals in Nrew York and
hope they reciprocate tho sentiments."

Tumiey Knocks
Out Al Roberts
In Eighth iloinnl
Gene Tunney, the A. E. V. cham
pion, knocked out A.1 Roberts in the
eighth round of a pectacular bout
at the NTewark Sportsman's Club last
night. A right hook to the jaw brought
Kobert, the Staten Islander, down for I
the tfull count. The end came after
some of the hardcst givo and take bat
tling tnai has been shown by heavies
in t his vicinity for > ome time.
For a brief space it looked as though
Tunney would win in the first round,
when he dropped Roberts for the count
j of three, but thc Staten Islander arose
and weathered the round. In the sec
ond Roberts started to fight back and
i gaye Tunney plenly of work. In the
i third round the Staten Islander was
^ getting the bctter of Tunney, rushinj;
him savagely and huving the bettor of
' the infighting.
But the ex-marnie stood toe to toe
with Roberts in the fourtji, and they
put up some slump-banlg iighting,
noither man puying much attention to
lelf-defenae. After the fourth Roberts
seemed to tirc, and Tunney quickened
the pace. In the sixth Roberts was
tottering on the vergc of laking the
drop morc than onc?- as Tunney forcod
him against the ropes and administered
! a severe beating.
I In the seventh round Tunnej
I dropped Roberts twice, one for a
quick count and onee for the count
ot nine. It became evident that the
Staten Islander had foughl himsclf
out, while the ex-marinc seemed fresh I
and vigorous. Thc end came quickiy
after thc opening of the eighth round.
Tunney pressed in elose and shot al
right hdbk righl to the poinl of the
I jaw. Roberts dropped like a Iog and
. did not rnove.
Eddie Fitz3immons, who is "Dumb"|
Dan Morgan's candidate for lightweighl
' honors, outfought Jimmy Duffy in every
, round of the eight in the scmi-finai.
Duffy was game and stood in elose to !
.play for the body, but Fitzsimmons
gave him a hard lacing. In the fourth
Fitz opened a cut over Duffy's left eye
and slowed him down with a right to I
the bodj. Th.e Morgan entry made
; .1 hard finish of it, but while he pun '
ished Duffy aeverely he could not drop i
Benny Valgar scored a victory over
Joey Fox, the Englishman, in the final
i bout of eighl rounds. At times Fox!
rallied and staved off the attack of his
1 rival, but theso spurts were only flur

In the preliminary Charlcy Beecher
I rushed "Battling" Reddy righl out of
the ropes in the fourth round. Reddy
fell to the floor, striking on the back
I of his head, and was unconscious for I
several minutes.
Skeeters Played Well

98 games topped all others with .966.
Bauman, of the Skeeters, led the sec
ond sackers with .975 for 136 games.
Kingston, of the same club. had a per?

games. The real championship, how
cver, was won by George Whiteman, of
Toronto, with a mark of .983 for 119
gam?s. *?[

The Hon. George Baleh, on the board of directors ?>!' the Cincinnati
Reds, informs us that Pa1 Moran will very likely conduct the next world

"He is the only National League manager since Stallings who could stop
tho American League rush. in itddition to this he has improVed his 1019
machine, and that machine was the best in baseball. Pat has bolstered
up both infield and outfield, and I don't believe there was over niuch
orgumenl as to the general worth of his pitching staff."
Quite Different
At this date a year ago no one had time to give the Keds any eon
sideration. It was largely a matter to be decided betwecn the Giar.ts
and the Cubs. Noav for the first winter in fifty years eveiy one t3 Avon
dering what, club will he strong enough to hold Cincinnati in check.
Xeitiiov the Gian';s nor White Sox last season could stave off the
Red rush at critical moments, and Pat's machine will be stronger in 1920
than it was in 1919.
The Xational League hasn't won two world series championships in
?uee.ession since the Cubs were on top oi' their stride in 1907 and 1908, to
be followed by the Pirates in 1909.
After Lost Titles
American sportsmen haven't yet forgotten that two of their leading
?itles haA'e been carried several thousand miles away.
The poio trophy stiii remair.s in Great Britain's possession and the
Australian contingent still remain in control of the Davis Cup.
The tennis jaunt to Australia wil! be made late next fali or early
While Wilding has passed and Brookes has slipped over to the down
ward slope of the hill, Australia still has two young stars ready Avith
Patterson and Anderson.
This pair will be even Letter with another year's experience, and it
ia no light assignment to travel 12,000 miles and overeome such opposition.
But with Johnston, Tilden and Williams, the United States has never had
a stronger enmbinatnon to send after the i'ar-away cup. If this trio can't
turn the trick in 1920-'21, Australia will be the tennis capital for some
years to come.
Great Lines from Literature
While hall players in the American Association wili be aliowed to
j make only "gentlemanly remarks" to umpires this scason, nothing Avas
! said ahout biting an umpire on the oar or stamping on his instep. Very
j likely the powers that be decided not to make the restrictions too drastic
| the first year. The enraged athlete must be given some leeway in which
: to express his growing annoyance.
A golf professional has devised a certain harness to prevent the
jduffer from iooking up or ovorswinging. It is very probable that dire
penalties will be infiieed upon caddies who persist in Avhistling "Only a
bird in a gilded cage."
Babe Ruth recently drove a golf ball 270 yards, landing on top of a
latchen roof. Golf scientists haven't yet decided whether thia long flight
was due to Ruth's follow through or whether the golf ball was merely
"Pinding minor leaguers who are fit for major league jobs is no easy

On Yale Court

By A. C. Cavagnaro
A double aurprise feat?r?d the semi
final round of play in the Class B
Xational Squash Tennis Association
championship tournament on the Yale
Club courts yesterCfty. Alcck H.
Tomes, Harvard Club, scored decisive'y
over Junius A. Richards, a clubmate,
while William Adams jr., Yale Club.
took the measure of Stuyvesant Wain
wright, also an Eli member, in a grue!
ing four-set issue.
Tomes and Adams will meet in the
fina 1 match for the title to-morrow af?
ternoon at 5 o'clock.
The defeat of Richards by the raih ir
inexperienced Tomes was totally ;;::
expected. However, in this instance a
change of pace attack and rernarkab'.p
placement shots proved more formid
ablo than terrific smaehing of tho ball.
Tomes suffered the humiliating ro.it of
i ?">?0 in the first game, but then '
ehanged his attack to win the next!
three games, 15?3, 15?7, 18?13. It
the fourth game, Richards led his op
ponent, 11 to 4, but this advantago was
wipod away in quick order.
.Adams outdrove Wainwright in a
match that found both players trying
to score points by almost eonstant use
of smasfiing shots. In thi< rp-p* t
Adams was the steadier a? cru
I eriods, especially in the fourth game,
?'hen he overcaire a big lead obtainod
by his rival. The s-core was 16 ~.
15?7, 8?15, 18- 14. Th<; men pounded
fche ball so hard that five new spheres
were used during tlie wa'ch,
Steadiness and an ability to locate
his rival's weak point- accounted for
the victory of Tomes. Time and again
tho latter forced his man or.:. of posi
tion with beautiful placement shots
along the side walis and a change of
pace that had Richards scurrying
around the court to intercept the ball.
Richards depended princinally on hard
shots. but. Tomes met thi- ttack with
beautiful volleying.
Tomes failed to score : ti aee !n tho
frrst game, durinj? which he attempted
to maich his speed with that of Rich?
ards. Tho drives of the latter, a south
paw. puzzled Tomes, who qulckly
brought about his own defeat in this
gam<> by inaceurate driving. ln the ?
second game, however, Tomes char.ged
his attack entirely, He resorted to a
"soft" game, in which iie barely grazed
the telltaie with tlie ball, and also
"laid" his shots close to the side wall.
The third game saw Richai.'s having
better success against his opponent's
ehanging attack. Tomes, playing cool
ly, thrilled the onlookers Avith splendid
racquot work, and in a s'noit time had
piled up an a Ivantage that Richards
tound insurmountable. At the outset
of the fourth. game Tomes began
smashing the hall, with the result *ha'
Richards soon compiled a lead of 11
to 4 before Tomes braced.
ln three successive hands Tomes
managed to collect two aces and r-'-en*.

side wall shots were eti'ective. and in
the extra live-ace set he literally swept

of his playing.

English Henley Regatta
Will Not Be Postponed
LONDON, Feb. 2.?The rumor cur
rent here that a postponment had been
ordered of the English Henley regatta,
which is to begin June 30, is withoul
teuVuiation, aecoruing to a statement
rpade to-day by the Amateur Rowing
An informal request that the Henley
regatta dates be set back a week, so
that Harvard University, holder of the
grand challenge cup, might send a crew
of oarsmen to defend the trophy and
so that Yale possibly could challenge
for the cup, was made last month. It
was pointed out that inasmuch as the
Yale-Howard regatta at N'ew London
would take place June 25 it would be
imi)ossible for Harvard to send a crew
across seas in time to reach England to
defend the gratid cliallen^e cup.
