It will not (bring 'out any legislation on the important questions now con fronting baseball, such as length of schedules, .player . limits, War taxes; and salary reductions. , Various club owners, including Eb bcts, Herrmann and -Dreyfuss, say these matters cannot be touched upon until the two leagues thoroughly air the subjects at a Joint meeting. ' ' "I believe that a meeting with the American league is of utmost impor- ; tance at ; this time," said President Ebbetsi of Brooklyn, "and .we will meet the American league in Chicago at the expiration of our meeting here. T do; not expect any four day National league season. "It appears to me to be absolutely necessary that the two leagues should act in unison on the question con fronting us.- For that reason I favor BUCh a meeting. I .believe Governor Tenor's position on this matter has been misunderstood. , IMy opinion is that the two leagues should tackle this problem as one.

' WORKERS READY TO WITH THE AMERICAN mt'-;f'.wa'i'fAiifiiiiiinvfM Yale Will Try To Ad just War Time Sports Efforts will be made by the Yale athletic council and the university faculty in a short time to formulate a definite general policy regarding the three major spring sports, baseball, track' athletics and rowing. In none has it been decided whether meets with outside colleges "will be arranged any whether any definite varsity team, will be organized or not. In none is a captain chosen for the or- j ganizing of the material and the planning for the coming season. There j was no reason in any of the three branches of sports after the declara tion of war last spring. The baseball nine was allowed to complete its Eas-' ter trip, which was begun at the time the declaration of war was made, the crew its two races with the Univer sity of Pennsylvania two days after war was declared, and the track team took part in an outside event the same week, but all three sports were dropped immediately and no scheduled event of any of the trio was held before the close of college in June. " It was believed that when the fall term of college was begun' in Sep tember an attempt would be made to organize' the spring teams through the appointment of , undergraduate managers, and captains. . No step whatever in this direction has. been taken, however, and it is now certain that the Christmas vacation will be begun the coming week Without any plan , being announced.. A special meeting of the board, of control, how ever, to discuss the situation will be held, but indications are that the only decision which will be made will be to wait till close upon the opening of the spring term before deciding to organize any teams whatever. -.The. main reason for expecting this action is that a 'national call is ex pected, about Feb.1 for members ot the Officers Reserve Training Corps at Yale to report at Plattsburg. If. this should be made several hundred young men who are now Yale under graduates and are enrolled in the present Reserve Officers' 1 Training Corps, would immediately report to win their commissions as army ffl cers, and the .university would again lack material for its spring teams as completely as it did last "spring when not a single veteran member of the baseball, rowing or track teams re mained in college, following the de claration of war. Under such condi tions the likelihood of teams in any of thethree branches of sports nett season- is slender. ,.. .... , -- GOULLET-KRAMER . .FUED STILL ALIVE New York, Dec 11 The Goullet Kramer feud is still on.
