THINKS JOHNSON SHOULD
RESIGN HIS PRESIDENCY
NEW YORK, Sept. 12. If Ban Johnson, American League presi
dent has any sense whatever of the fitness or the 'unfitness of
things hell quit his job, was the opinion expressed today by Col.
Jacob Uuppert, part owner of the New York Yankees.
Johnson's throne is about to topple, anyway,, according to Rup-
pert, and abdication now would be a timely act.
ine lecrai action started oy me
Tankce owners to prevent Ban from
interfering with Pitcher Carl Mays
ended yesterday with a hearing he
fore .Referee George Gillespie. The
testimony is now in the hands or
Supreme Court Justice "Wagner. The
final hearing brought a statement
from Johnson that he had owned
stock, in the Boston team, as well
as the Cleveland club.
He Skoal Reatga.
'Johnson should resign after these
disclosures." Ruppert said today. "He
has a long time contract, and it
would be hard to unseat him, but the
club owners, after learning the meth
ods pursued by Johnson In directing-
league affairs and after hearing that
he owns stock in several clubs, cer
tainly will take action to curb his
power and 'make the board of direc
tors more than a figurehead."
Weald "PBBlsk Both Club."
Johnson admltted-that he suspend
ed Carl Mays, the pitcher, on July 31
"'because he was transferred to the
New York club without being dis
ciplined." fie admitted that his ac
Ition was taken to punish both the
Boston and the New York clubs, and
1 asserted that he had ppwer under
the American League constitution to
take such action.
Johnson was more warlike in
his demeanor than on the first appear
ance before the referee. He snapped
his answers to C. H. Tuttle, of counsel
for the Yankee management, who con
ducted the examination, and he found

emphatically that enmity for Frazee

Johnson denied that he had any

tory over Kerr. 4 to 3. Claud Williams
went out and paralyzed the home boys
with as pretty an exhibition as has
been seen here this season. He won
under wraps, 5 to 0.
Eddie Collins' failure to throw the
ball when Joe Judge stopped ebtween
first' and second in the opening inning
of the first game decided the victory,
for both Judge and Foster were safe.
They worked a double steal and then
Rice singled and Pat'Gharrity dou
bled. Result, three runs. Three hits
produced another tally in the second,
just enough to keep the Grin's in front.
The Griffs were held ltlesa for six
frames in the second game. Then
Rice smashed Williams' attempt at a
no-hit game with a single to right.
Picinich followed with a double, but
neither could score, and after that
nobody could hit, cither.
