Written Especially for The News By John Thomas Wilson Thru Autoeaster Service. New York January 18, 1926— Victory where is thy thrill? That is the question one asks himself after mingling with baseball powers in their mid-winter confabs, since the December meeting at Chicago, wherein one Bancroft B. Johnson, President of the American League, was slapped down by the club owners in his league in sustaining Judge Landis, baseball dictator. In truth, there is no thrill. There is uneasiness. There is a feeling that the battle is not yet ended. The voice of the fan is beginning to be heard on all sides. And when Mr. Fan speaks Then baseball powers must listen— and make satisfactory reply. It seems that making reply in this instance is the very thing baseball powers do not want to do. It would be much beter were all details of the matter dropped right now. Fact of the matter is, baseball pow ers are not at all pleased with the actions of Ban Johnson since his humiliating ordeal at Chicago, whun seven of the eight club owners be had so successfully served turned upon him. It was expected that the great chieftain would step down and out rather than submit to such public In sult. Instead, Ban Johnson is sitting tight and sawing wood. Therein Um thé cause of uneasiness, ) "Isn't is possible" asked a seasoned baseball authority the other day, "teat ^hen a man is right and! knows whereof he speaks, that he is a hard | man to defeat? Perhaps Ban Jehn i son knows what he is talking about when he speaks of baseball having put the dollar mark above honor—and that there has been 'queer' stuff across' in our big league races. "Is there crookedness in baseball? 'put; j has charged? If these facts j then isn't Ban Johnson correct, that I NOW I. a. , u ^ w regardless of the cost at the box office? Is Ban Johnsoa right in the things he. are true the guilty thrown out of baseball and prosecuted. 1 for one will never be I think ao—and until the I whole affair is gone into thoroughly and fairly; all the facts made known; the same enthusiastic supporter of the game. Say Ban Johnson Ha« the Evidence, Such is thc pointed talk of the fan. And it is the very talk that makes the powers-that-be feel that possibly the death knell of Ban Johnson has not yet been sounded. Followers of sport, "those in the know*', say that Ban Johnson know« what he is talking about; that he has! every bit of evidence he claims to have that the magnets are afraid to let him talk; and that in many decisions the dollar mark is above honor is base ball administration today. All of this gossip is brewing a big 'showdown in baseball. Fan* of the great game are first, last and all the time American—and it is a trait that they will not stand for unfairneu, crookedness, a covering up, or the kicking of a man when be ia down. Perhaps Ban Johnson did not have the rank and file of baseball's fans up to place, power and wealth in base ball, turned upon him-not because he was proved wrong—b»t seemingly "because it was the best thing for baseball"—which in this day is of course the gate receipts. Johnson May Yet be Biggest Figure in the Game \ It is not amka here to point out that Ban Johnson has not as yet subscribed to the "Chicago deal". In a way it has offered him the opportunity to prove his greatness. He is sitting tight and awaiting his hour. Those dose to him say that he knows the hour will come. It promises to furn ish some startling news. If Ban Johnson is right; if there is crookedness in the game and our great ctional pastime has been commercial-' Ized to the point wherein all honor is lost; if Johnson stands by his guns and with the fan's help can force a showdown and a clean-up: then he wiH be the greatest figure the game behind hire during all thc years that he tM putting the American League on fte feet and making it the great organization that is is today. It is a fact, however, that since the "Chicago muzzling" the reaction has a!) been in his favor, and many supporters are found on every hand. Fans cannot overlook the fact that Johnson was bitten by the mouths he had fed for these many years; that in some instances the men he had lifted aas ever known—and will have served all baseball, as he conceived, launched, .ought for and made successful, the American League Awaits HU Hour ."1 „ . . , _ _ - - iEN furelluRY \IiTH un Jftnumu ^uiii| I u Ban B.
