V-fJ1 20 EVENING PUBLIC LEDaEIPHIEABBLPHIA, MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1021 Snnual Meetings of Big League Baseball Magnates Are Scheduled This Week in New Yerk I MAJOR LEAGUE OHWWIDUNDEE IN FIELD ALL PRIMED TO FIGHT MR RETURN OF DRAFT W'v-.t. - r A-i.-j i Mmufuuuni, r rices siskvu jur ittuiur ijt:uguu eiuis vjuuev Moguls te Talce Action in Meetings in New Yerk This Week By ROnEKT V. MAXWELL. Sports Editor Erenlnr TuMIe Ledger npttIB 1022 baseball season Is well under way, running smoothly and has JL grabbed the entire sport stage. The grand old national pastime usually horns in about this time of the year, nnd when it does everything ele Is for gotten. The football tcasen still is lukewarm, but that makes no difference. Ne sooner was the Army and Navy game ever than the owners and managers of blit league ball clubs stepped into the open, and are there te remain until further notice. Football took the count when Judge- Lnndl handed down his derision rntch flattened the bankrolls of Beb Meuscl and Bill l'iercey and slightly an noyed Babe Ruth financially. Before the fans ceased talking about this. Jawn McOraw up and buys Heinle (Iren for the Glnnts nnd scored a complete knockout when he handed out $".".000 for First Baseman O'Connell, who will be delivered at the end of the 1922 season. Frank Navin, of Detroit, and Garry Herrmann also kicked in with a ceuple of heavy financial deals, and this also made Interesting reading. New wc have the annual league meetings in New Yerk this week. To morrow the National League will meet behind barred doers at the Waldorf, and en Wednesday the American will be in action in the Commedore. A joint meeting is scheduled for Thursday, and by that time everybody will knew all about the prospects of the clubs for the coming campaign. When it comes tune te cop the spotlight, baseball lets go with both barrels. The usual business will be transacted at the gatherings, which means the owners will get together, try te arrange a few trades and discuss the high cost of playing. There also will be an attempt te shorten the World Series te even games, which should be perfectly satisfactory te both of our Philadelphia clubs, because it's just the same te them. They don't have te work after the Mtten ends. Anether important subject te be discucd is the draft. Since the miners decided te go it alone they have made mere money than ever before In selling layers and will attempt te keep conditions as they are. The recent transac tions virtually have killed all chances for the return of the draft, for when an owner can draw $75,000 for a player like O'Connell and retain his services for one year, and a club can get $40,000 and some players for a pair of pifhera ueh as were sold te Detroit there's no reason from the viewpoint of the miner leaguers te return te the old system, where the draft price was Around $3000. WtiyOR league ball players have increased in value and trill con IW tinue te increase se long ai exorbitant prices arc paid. The O'Connell deal has ruined the market, and unlesi a club owner talks in big figures when seeking an athlete the deal s off. Trouble Ahead for Club Oivncrs rTVILL net be easy sailing for the major league club owners this coming season. Disgruntled stars will become mere disgruntled, holdouts will be numerous and during the winter months we will read about the voluntary retirement of many famous players. The first will be Eddie Reush, of the Reds. Eddie wants te leave that dear Cincinnati and hook en with another club, meaning the Giants. He has demanded a salary which would make I'reMdent Harding jealous, nnd says there will be nothing doing unless the Reds come through. He is kicking in with the same stuff that Helnie Greh pulled. Heinle modestly demanded $24,000 for next year and was punished by being sent te New Yerk. Reush wanta some of the same punishment. However, Garry Herrmann says his star outfielder will net get the money he asked for. will net be sold or traded and will net play baseball unless it is wjth the Cincinnati Baseball Club. In ether words, he will receive the same treatment as Greh last year, when he was nllewed te remain idle five weeks and draw no pay. Garry pays he expects Reush te remain en hiw farm next summer, for there will be no room for him en the ball club unless he signs the papers-originally offered by the management. Milten Stock is in again and Branch Rickey is nnxleus te get rid of him. Milten is one of the best thlrd-sackers In the business, hits well nnd is a val uable man for nny ball club, but his business methods have net made a hit with the owners. Every year Stock is a holdout He demands a big increase In .salary and will net make a move until be gets a new contract. This has happened year after year, and Milten has been able te dodge the unprofitable iMw training trips down Seuth. fl?V ' " TJ . l.-.l ILL. ... t aU- Tl,n ic wufivt-u luis raiim en wiu uuui 1 rcMuunc xiUKcr iraeea nim 10 St. Leuis, nnd then Rickey fell heir te a let of trouble. The mere fact he wants te get rid of a high-class playpr is the Up-off. There Is a rumor that Pittsburgh would like te get Stock. Perhaps Barney Dreyfuss wants te try his hand nt taming the third baseman, as he Is a past master in that line of work. It Is said that a deal Is pending whereby "Whittcd, Tierncy nnd Barnhart will be traded, and while it seems te be a whole let for one man, the trade might go through. According te gossip, there were two factions en the Pirate club Iat fall when the'tcam cracked, folded up and lest the pennant, nnd It is up te Drey fus cither te dispose of Manager Gibsen or the malcontents. If such is the cake, several players will be sold or traded before the season opens, as Gibsen will be retained. THE Yankas also are in the market for players, and it is possible that Veach and Ehmkc icill be traded by Detroit for Mitchell and a pitcher. Trick Pass Decides Grid Title LEO CONWAY'S Philadelphia Quakers wen the Independent championship of Phl'adelphia Saturday when they defeated Frankford by one touch down. The game was hard fought and the seere came en n trick forward pass in the third period. Outside of that one piny the teams were about even. It wns impossible te gain consistently, as the opposing linemen, former college stars and coaches, knew tee much about the game and could diagnose thr plays tee quickly. The defense en both sides was superb nnd the football played was almet perfect. The Quakers attempted the open game in the first half and could de little against the Yellewjackets. In the third period they bucked the line, drew in the secondary defense and worked two preitj ferwurd passes, the last one coring the only touchdown. Johnny Scott is responsible for the victory. He put one ever en Frank -ford when he pulled a play which was net expected. Hinkey Haines carried the ball te the 11-yard line en a completed forward pass, nnd, nfter three shots at theline, the Quakers still had three vards te go en the fourth down. , There was a brief consultation nnd Scott drew Haines te one side nnd talked with bim. Frnnkferd was certain Hinkey was te run out nnd get a pass behind the goal line, nnd he was completely covered. The teams lined up and the ball was snipped te Scott. Johnny stepped back and Ilnines. closely pursued by nt lenst five Yellow Jackets, ran te the far corner of the field, wnvmg his hands and shouting for the ball. He didn't have one rhunee in a million of getting It. and Scott was aware of this. In the meantime, Heinle Miller ran behind his own line nnd then crossed into the 10-yard zone. He was all nlene nnd Scott threw the ball. It sailed straight into Heinle s arms, and the former All-American end touched the ball down for the winning score. In a way this wns one of the most unique Independent ganrM ever played There was mere spirit shown by the players thnn we ever hs.-e seen in a similar contest. They fought desperately nnd tried ns hard te win as 1' they had been en their college team in the biggest game of the year. The bright star of the game was Dr. Jee Alexander, of Svrncuse rx- anderwas a great lineman when in college, but is much better new. Time and ( again he broke up plays behind the line nnd was go i nt opening he'es en the attack. Whitey Themas and Williams plnjcd well at end nnd Remmey was an excellent halfback. AN EFFORT is being made te select an all-star team from Frank- ford, Ilelmcsburg, Conshehoclen and Union te play the Quakers next Saturday.

JAFFE JOHNNY DUNDEE Is in Philadel-j t phla today, nnd he brought evcr with him from New Yerk a fine line of conversation speaking of large gobs of money nnd nlse of chnmplenships. The jumplng-jack jabber is being recognized ns the junior lightweight tltleheltlcr since winning en a foul from Geerge . Chancy recently. But Dundee is net all contented with I one mere crown. He wants mere laurels in fact two additional titles. Yes, I thnt's right, Johnny wants te go Johnny i Buff one better, nnd that in te become a triple titlcheldcr. Speaking financially, Dundee said to te day: "I am rendy te pest a certified check of $10,000 for a bout with Johnny Kllbane at 120 pounds nt 2 o'clock te n decision, nnd if he shows n willingness te talk business I will go ns fur as te mnke him n henu te step into the ring with me.

Seme times the papers gave me the verdict, etner times they favored nim, but at no time did Leenard return a winner decisively. I feel sure I can win from Benny en points In n decision scrap." Light Heavyweights A pair of big boys, who pr ed them selves light henvyweights that i-, light en their feet are Eddystone Ml'lir, whose first name is Alex, nnd Frankle Brltten. This pair. Miller weighing 1C" and Brltten 170. put en one of the most interesting, one of the hardest and closest battles teen in a Philadelphia rlnir. They clashed In one of tlie prelim inary at the National Saturday night, and It was net until the flnnl sound of the gong that a winner could be picked. Brltten earning the laurels chiefly en his work In the last round. Miller had geno tired, and se did Brltten, but the latter continued te punch mere con sistently, and thereby bung the deci sion. Throughout the match Brltten, the boxer, and Miller, the slugger, Dntticu all ever the ring. It was n vicious scrnp exceedingly se, nnd, while each connected with some terrific punches' the end of the match found neither very much marked. Slackening up In the final frame of an eight-round bout caused Jee Nelsen te lese his match with "Irish Johnny" Curtin In the wind-up. Curtin's mar gin of victory was of the hair-line va riety. Jee had a geed chance of win ning the bout had he kept going in the eighth round, but he didn't, and the Irish lad finished a winner by n blinde. .Tee .mcksen sinmDuiiKi'u -w cr Geerge l nip wnuepeu '','. v'"". nnd Geedie eisu dexuu iuiuu) ! en a draw Snaring the Easel Bebby uarretr. ei umuuin will make an effort te snare the I.agel by clipping Geerge's wings in he ir match nt the Ice Palace tomorrow night.

NOT TOO IMPROBABLE It May Belong te a Future Generation, but Wouldn't Be as Upsetting te Tradition as Fifty-nine Heme Runs By GRANTLAND HICE TIie nig Fourth Three teas the finure when the pig Skin game was m its infancy ; Yale, Harvard, I'nnccten were tnc nig. The rest came scarce up te their knee Infinltesimally wee. Then did the name Big Four appear. Hut new, despite the V. of P., There is a new Fourth every year. 'Twas Penn, indeed, dancing a jig On Harvard's hide decisively That caused the alien world te twig That 'twas in fairness nccess'ry Te add one te the holy Three. But Penn dropped out; yet strangely here Came no return of trinity: There is a new Fourth every year. Old Dartmouth, caring net a fig Fer crowns, -fomented anarchy And forced the critics te rcnia On Big Thrce stuff; and the Xavea Occasionally went en spree. Pitt, State, Cernell and Army, clear Established new and then their plea: There is a new Fourth every year. Envoi Thus has this sweetly come te be: Ne football season can be drear As fencr as all the teams agree There is a new Fourth every year. STANLEY K. WILSON.

Nine seconds flnt mny belong te a future generation, but it would net be surprising te see the old mark cut down te i) 2-5 seconds within n year or two or three.

GEORGIA TECH next fnll is plan ning te meet both the Navy and Pcnn State, in addition te looking nfter its Southern clients. There is certainly no tendency here te duck the issue, Seuth or North, THE big wonder in se many football attacks is that the clement of crnft or surprise was missing. Penn State led in this matter of offensive deception, with Harvard next in line. Geergln Tech, for one example, proved te have n strong line ngainst straight rushing. Tlie Tech line, held Kcnyen and Flavin, of Georgetown, two of the hnrdest run ning backs of the year. Auburn, nn old rival, only made something like one first down. But Penn State, striking with Killinger nnd Wilsen en split plays, delayed passes nnd fnke thrusts, romped through for four touchdowns. The clement of deception upon nttack in the liast is entirely tee thin. AFTER spending seven years in the cellar. Cennie Mack denira that he , hns bought the place for permanent hapltntlen.
