The question of improving the ineld so that something may be done was discussed at length. The playing schedule for next season wasU also gone over. It has been decided by the I owners of the Boston club that their team will play yunday ball in the west next year. it has not yet been settled wheter the league win elect va president or remain un- J der the -government of an executive comn- a -mittee as at present. Consequently no sec- r retary was elected.
