HERRMANN SAYS RULING
WILL SMOTHER BASEBALL
That professional baseball as
played by the major leagues will be
struck a death blow by the strict
interpretation placed upon the "work
or fight" order by Provost Marshal
General Enoch Crowder is indicated
i in the official statement made public
by Chairman August Herrmann, of
the National Commission.
The bifj leagues have on their re
serve lists 369 players. Of this
number 258 are within the present
draft ages and compelled, under the
"work or fight" order, to tiuit base
ball for some "essential task."
"It will absolutely crush a business
that has millions invested," says Herr
mann. "The book value of the combined
sixteen clubs, not including the
franchise value or the value of the
players. Is J8,C37.7j4.1C. while the
amount subscribed by the official.'
and stockholders of the various clubs
for Liberty bonds was S,S2J,i50."
Army Has Taken Many.
On October 1, 1917, according to
' Herrmann's official records, thero
were 331 players on the reserved list
of tbe sixteen major league clubs.
Of this number 81, or 17.1 per cent.
, have volunteered for military duty.
3 and 63, or 11.8 per cent have been
;J i drafted.
Herrmann calls attention to the
fact that the average salary of those
I volunteering was 2,521.;4 and of
I those drafted SS.ttl.Ze. showing that
entering the service could not have-
bettered their situations financially.
"Attention Is called to
says Herrmann, "that the professional
"aseDau player is employed only dun
Ing six months of the year, and that
all of them stand ready during the
off season rrom October to March
to leek essential employment.''
Mast Start Over Again.
If professional basebsH'ls compelled
by tha Government to cease after next
October Tor the duration of the war,
1U leaders believe that it will have
to start fresh all over again. It is not
considered likely that many of those
players now In tha game, will be able
to stage a "come back" after resting
even one season. Because of this pos-

Walter Might Have Woa Sooner
Had Milan Held BodJc's High Fly
By WTLLIAM J. SLOCUM-.
NEW TORK. June 22. Walter
Johnson bad to go thirteen Innings
to win a ball game that should have
been a shutout In nine innings, but
be got there finally wtlh the victory.
But for a wild throw to third by
Eddie Alnsmlth and a horrible muff
In left center by Zeb Milan, tha
Tankees would have found third base
a dead line In the third game of the
series. These mlsplaya furnished two
runs, and made the going all tha
more difficult for the Kansas Cyclone.
It was fitting that Milan should
finish up by striking the deciding
blow for his team. The usually re
liable Zeb forced a few thousand fans
to freeze for four more innings when
he let an easy fly get out of his
clutches with two down In the ninth
and a runner jogging home from sec
ond, simply because running is cus
tomary. Pratt Scored On MntT.
Pratt had no idea as he moved
slowly toward the plate that he was
carrying a tielng run on his shoul
ders, bust such proved to be tha case.
Then In the thirteenth, with one out
and Nationals on first and second
base, Zeb atoned for his mlsplay by
smashing a single over Peck's head,
and Foster carried in what proved ta
be the winning marker:
Johnson held the Yankees complete
ly under his thumb. In thirteen in
nings he allowed exactly five hits
and they were scattered over four In
nings, two arriving in the eighth.
Only two of the hits were solid slams,
Marsans getting one In the eighth
and Pratt one in the ninth. Pratt
and Gilhooley got Into the hit column
on scratches and Hannah on a little
Texas leaguer that fell out of the
reach of Judge. Morgan and Shotton
near the right field line In the eighth.
None Reached Third.
Except In the eighth and ninth in
nings, when loose playing made pos
sible the New York runs, not a Tan
kee reached third base. In fact only
one reached second in the innings
other than the eighth and ninth. That
was Gilhooley, who was sacrificed In
