Frank Chance Gets Tenth
Interest in the Yankees
CHICAGO. Jan. 10.?Frank Chance,)
who signed a contract yesterday for
three years as manager of the New
York American League, at $40,000
a year, is also said to have secured an
i interest in the club. While in Los
Angeles recently Chance said that to
manage the Yankees only under an
agreement whereby he could get part
! of the stock. "A salary alone would
j not tempt me," Chance is quoted
[ as saying. "They must give me a
tenth interest in the club or I will
stay right here on my orange farm."
This announcement bears out the
predictions of Chance's friends that
he would not return to baseball un
less he got an interest in the club
with which he signed. Chance had
an interest in the Chicago club, and
it was the sale of this stock that
caused his break with President
Murphy of the Chicago club.
Chance's friends say that there is
only one reason why ho will return
to the game, and that Is to vindicate
himself in the eyes of the baseball
world of the charges made by Mur
phy that he was physically and men
tally unfit to stay in baseball any
longer. Chance according to authori
tative information, is in good shape
mentally and physically and has the
word of the most expert New York
physicians that he will not be trou
bled with the ailment which was
caused by being hit in the head with
a ball some time ago.
A close friend, who has known
Chance for many years, said in rela
tion to the case: "I have had Frank
Chances' implicit confidences for
years and feel free to say that I do
not believe any financial temptation
would have been strong enough to
have him remain in baseball if he
? had been permitted to retire quietly
~ after disposing of his Interest in the
"His is not a nature that requires
the excitement of the strenuous life
to make him enjoy living. He natur
ally prefers the simpler life and has
enough Interests outside of baseball
to keep him as busy as he wants to

bo. Only the belief that the public
and his friends would think that he
was pushed out of baseball as a 'has
been' could change his desire to
stay out of it, but that belief would
not be strong enough to tempt him
back without a stiff financial argu
ment in addition.
"It will take a pretty high salary to
make Chance take a second look at a
manager's contract, and If the Amer
ican League forces have an idea that
he will return to the game for any
thing near the salary called for in
his Chicago contract they will find
that the big deal has been pulled off
Christy Mathewson, real estate
agent, author, billiardist, motorist,
checker expert, and also a baseball
pitcher for the Giants, is Just now In
the insurance business, but he Is hav
ing a hard time making people believe
it. When Matty begins to talk Insur
ance with a prospective customer, the
conversation for five minutes is about
Insurance and for the next hour base
ball. So Matty had to call a halt.
He doesn't mind talking baseball in
summer, but in winter he wants to
talk insurance. So many people have
dropped into Mathewsons' office to
talk baseball that he had to put up
n sign. It reads:
"This is an insurance office and
not a lounging room. Christy Mat
hewson is interested in anything that
has to do with insurance. Ho does
not recall the score of the last game
of the World's Series."
But there is a lot of people that
the sign has no effect on. The other
day a man dropped in, sat down, and
lighted a cigar, and said: "How are
you Matty? I've seen you pitch many
"You've got the wrong man," an

hide his identity he might sell more
