Johnny Evers made his debut

According to reports from
New York the National Commis
sion is considering a rule intend
ed to end all squabbling and un
savory gossip about the world's
series. The money division will
be revised. Under the proposed
plan each member of the winning
team will get $1,000 and the losers
$750. The remainder of the usual
percentage in the first four games
would be distributed among play
ers on the other fourteen big1 lea
gue teams. A de'finite sum will be
set-aside for each club, and the
other club owners will participate
in the surplus. -
This Is 'a clever idea for the
owners With every player in the
two big' leagues getting a cut of
the post season'moriey, the own
ers would dangle this bait before
the players' eyes, cut their salaries
and force the public which pays
admission to the world's series
' games to assist them in paying
the players. The present method
is all right. . There is more in
centive to fight for $4,000 than
for $1,000. Also, when only two
teams can get a crack at, the
world's series melon, there-iwill be
more effort on the part of the
players to get in on the cut.
If the National Commission is
really, sincere in its efforts to
make the world's series cleaner
and better for the spectators, it
might devote a little of its energy J
to keeping "tickets away from the
hands of speculators. That is the
only feature connected with the3
big games thus far that has creat
ed any scandal.
