Federa! League Makes Legal Move Which Meaos Fight to Finish Against Organized Baseball
Baltimore Club Planning Appeal to Supreme Court Old Leagues Instruct Counsel to SInsile Case, but Litigation May Take Two Years; Manager Hug gins Still Angling for Dugan, of the Athletics By W. J. Macbeth Counsel for the stockholders of the Baltimore club of the defunct Federal League in Washington yesterday waived be fore- the District Court . of Appeals the right to new trial under the court's recent action in setting aside judgment of $264,000 for the club against organized baseball. The' court was asked to amend its decree ^> as to permit, direct application on appeal to the United States Supreme ?ourt. ?, All of which indicates clearly that?! the moneyed interests behind the old Federal League ciub of Baltimore, which claims it was left out in the cold at the time of the settlement of the "outlaw" war, intend to tight to the last ditch not only to gets its money, but to have baseball declared a "trust," as it was declared by the lower courts. Ever sin-'c this suit was inaugurated three years ago those who backed the Federal League in Baltimore have had visions of one day crashing into th<y major league circuit. For a short time . during the preliminary stages of the present suit it appealed as if the dream might be realied. An earlier suit was called off after having been before a Philadelphia jury for three days. Something GlfesWrong It was *umore?l at the time a com? promise was to be made whereby the Washington franchise, then in serious financial straits, was to be transferred to the Oriole City. Something went wrong with the scheme, if, indeed, it ever had been contemplated. Now capital was interested in the Senators, and shortly afterward the suit now sending was launched at Washington in place of the one withdrawn from the Philadelphia courts. - As organized baseball has every? thing to gain and little to lose, George Wharton Pepper, the eminent Phila? delphia lawyer who scored so heavily for the major leagues in the Court of Appeals, has been instructed;'to carry the fight through the Supreme Court as speedily as possible. It will pr-?r ably require two years at the vp\ earliest for the case to be reached on the docket. One important point seems to have escaped the magnates as the case now stands. It is a point that was called to the attention of his constituents by John Conway Toole, the new president of the New International League. Should the Supreme Cpurt uphold the ruling of the Appellate Branch, the major leagues would be vindicated of til suspicion of operating as a "trust"; they would likewise save the $2(14,000 and costs, and would have one? neces Bary evil of the existing contract? th/1 reserve clause?validated. But this substantiation of the re? serve clause might in the end act as a boomerang to the prestige of the twe major leagues. In case of a base bpll war there no longer could be | traffic in players such as characterized | the American League's fght against the National League in the oh! clays, and later the Federrl League's raid? ing of major stars If the reserve clavse in organized baseball had to be respected, then also the reserve clause of a league or leagues outside the pale would have to be respected. International Ambitions It is known the New International League for many years has been ambi? tious. Two years ago it asked for rec? ognition as a major league. If the Class AA leagues, in the settlement which is to be effected in Chicago at the big conference on January 12 next. can carry their point against draft privi? leges by the majors i and the New In? ternational and the American Associa? tif both have already declared against . the draft!, there is nothing to prevent either or both, perhaps by combination of the best cities in the two leagues, from declaring major league presump? tions and fighting out the issue, un? hampered, before public opinion. Here is a point th ? major league clubs should keep in mind during the big rally in the Windy City next month. Manager Miller Huggi?s of the Yan? kees is in Cii : iti for the holidays, but he expects ; t the big Chicago con- ' ference next month to effect several trades that will sand his team to Shrevcport the choice of the field for the 1021 pennai t race. Hugg;ns has not despaired of land? ing second baseman Joe Dugan from Connie Mack, even though Connie has spurned every advance so far. Connie is none too well provided with pitch? ers, while Huggina is overstocked in this commodity and may be able to oder for Dugan the equivalent in play? ing value. If a straight trade for Dugan cannot be effected it i? said a three-cornered trade among New York, Philadelphia and Washington may result. Connie Mack is very sweet on Wally Pipp, while Clark Griffith is quite as anxious to land Joe Dugan as is Huggins. Cos nip has it that Pipp may go to the Athletics, Dugan to Washington and perhaps Sammy Kice to the Yankees. This deal would involve a big money outlay on the part of New York, bat the Colonels are ready t?> spend some of the excess profita to strengthen the team. =?

The time was not taken, but Coach M'oakley said the perform- j anee was satisfactory. All the men, with the exception of R. ! E. Brown, who is suffering from a cold, aw in good condition and are expected to make as excellent showing as when Cornell won 3 he intercollegiate. The Americans are encountering1 some new conditions here, due chiefly to England's capricious climate, with extrem?' <. .x . / and drizzling rain, contrasting with Ithaca's line winter weather. There are also differences in the running.courses here, there being numerous water jumps, necessitating the runners taking cold plunges, hedges and hurdles and heavy going over plowed fields. Cornell's training will consist chiefly in practicing jumps and running over heavy roa li . Pal Moore to Oppose Sharkey in Garden Ring On next Tuesday evening at Madison !

Mr. Manes stated that action had al- i ready been taken on the stand of ; Columbia's oafsmen in demanding a return to the former four-mile course for the Poughkeepsie regatta, and there was great possibility that the old dis- ! tance would again be in vogue before ! many years had passed, if not next spring, ilr, Mapes communicated the; position of Columbia to Charles Tre- i man, of Cornell, and Arthur Brown, of j ?Pennsylvania, the other Poughkeepsie stewards, and their replies were Borne- ! what unexpectedly in favor of a return. Mr. Mapes, however, said that in all j ' probability the 1921 Poughkeepsie race | would be over the three-mile course ! ; determined on before the war. The Navy, Wisconsin and other crews have I already been invited to take part, in the j regatta and have been told that the | '?distance would be three miles. It would ! therefore be too late to make any I change for the coming season at least. Mr. Mapes expressed hope that the | Navy would*enter the Poughkeepsie regatta. lie said he had conferred with Commander Morrison on the subject ; and there was every possibility that the Poughkeepsie contests would be se lected for the Navy's big regatta of the year.

The report that Messrs. Huston, Ruppert, Comiskey and Frazee will drop something into Pan Johnson's stocking is absolutely unfounded, as it is strictly against the law to send nitro-glycerine by mail. It is difficult to say just at this moment whether it is easier to estab? lish peace in the Balkans or in the A nei ?can League. Both are charter 3nembers of the Off-Agin-On-Agin Club. Why Not? "Ty Cobb will never lead the league again," says a contemporary. "He held the winning paco until he reached the age of thirty-four and then he fell back. At thirty-four his day as a league leader is over." Possibly, but in no way a certainly. Hans Wagner led the National lx?aguo for the last time i^i 1911. In 1911 Wagner was thirty-seven yeai% old, several seasons out beyond Cobb's duration upon this whirling circle. Wagner at thirty-seven had n hing like Cobb's speed at thirty-four. It might be mentioned on the side that in 1911 Wagner had no George Sisler and no Tris Speaker to beat. But he was at least able to prove that thirty-four was no barrier to leadership. 1921's Chance Nineteen twenty-one can get away to a running start in the sporting whirl of time if some court can fasten a conviction not only upon the ballplayers who sold out, but upon the gamblers who framed the deal. It is a mistake to assume that during the lull this case has been for ' gotten and therefore should be dropped. The appointment of Judge Landis was a big factor in the general clean-up, but it doesn't end the argumi nt. Not as long as the main crook? are still untouched.

Jones to Give Decision Soon On Yale Offer Football Coach to Return Only Provided He Can t4r * range His Business Affaire By Ray McCarthy Tad Jones, Yale's football coach, stopped oiT in the city yesterday on his way froi3i New'Haven, to Kis home in E>:e?"'o. Ohio, where he will spend the holidays. The popular mentor and former star quarterback has been dis? cussing the football situation with' the authorities at Yale, but as yet has not decided as to whether or not he will return. He is in hopes of reaching a decision on the matter during the holi? days. All Yale men are clamoring for the return of Jones and it would seem to the bystander that it should be an easy matter for him to decide to go back. However, such is not the case. Ta i i doing his best to arrive at a satisfac? tory conclusion; in fact he is quite concerned about the whole matter. Hindered by Business Affairs Jones must, first of all, make a sat? isfactory adjustment of his business affairs so that he can get away to dc ?the coaching. He feels he is in duty bound to heed the call of his *lm? mater,, and he is more than anxious t( ', fulfill the mission, but it ii3cans a tre mendous sacrifice on his f>art to go t< New Haven. Jones doesn't intend te make football coaching his professioi and intends to remain at New Haven in the event that he does not return only long enough to install a footbal system. It was only the constant urging o the Yale committee that induced hin to return last season and he feels tha to make a success of the job as grid iron coach he should devote a fe\ weeks to the game in the spring. Jones wih spend much time in think mfr the matter over the coming wee and is in hopes of giving the footbal committee a satisfactory answer short ly after January 1.

Rogers Peet Company Broadway Broadway at 13th St. "Four at 34th St Convenient Broadway Corners" Fifth Av?s. at Warren at 41st St Pittsburgh Boxer Gets Verdict Over Local Champion Jack Stark, 325-pound metropolitan champion, was defeated in the final of the fWtercity boxing tournament at the Crescent A. C, Brooklyn, last night by . Billy Linder, of Pittsburgh. The bout waa very close throughout, but it , seemed that Stark did the cleanest punching and the spectators were not at all pleased with the decision of th'j judges. Stark was the aggressor in the open? ing round and Linder's efforts were I very ragged, but the Pittsburgh youth came back strong in the second and evened up matters. The third round was the fastest of the bout, both men ; exchanging heavy blows and neither giving ground in the rallies. It ap : poared to be a good draw, but the i judges were impressed with Linder's i ability and a victory was chalked up for the Smoky City. Willie Singer, the 115-pound metro i politan champion, gave R. Honeyford, ?mother Pittsburgher, a severe drub? bing in three rounds, but the judges disagreed and the referee ordered j another round. After the fourth 1 stanza the judges were again at loss to select the winner and the referee*! .??warded the verdict to the local man, who easily earned the honors.
