Yank-Red Sox Deal of Last
Winter Creates Suspicion
of Syndicate Ball.
CHICAGO, Nov. 23—Evidence that the
consideration l-y which Babe Ruth, the
world's greatest home run swatter, was
transferred from the Boston Red Sox
to the New York Yankees last winter
amounted to something besides the $125,-
000 purchase price announced at the
time of the deal, has percolated into the
offices of President Johnson of thu
American League.
It came in the form of the transcript
of a part of the records of the County
of Suffolk, Mass., in which is located
the city of Boston, showing that on
May 25, 1920, there was executed by the
organisation controlling the Boston
American League Club a mortgage for
$.200,000 in favor of Jacob Ruppert et als.
Jacob Ruppert is the principal stock
holder of the Yankees and the “et ais"
probably represent Colonel Huston and
the minority stockholders in the Yankee
club, although that is a guess.
Tho mortgage covers the real estate
holdings as well as the baseball fran
chise of the Boston American League
Club and represents nearly 3<t per cent
of the maximum pri e of $1,200,000 which
Harry Frazee has fixed on the property.
The real estate Involved In Fenway Park,
exclusive of improvements, was about
SIBO,OOO when the Red Sox plant was
built some years ago, but the ground
value has increased since then.
This evidence of at least a
interest in the Boston American Leagfle
Club by the owners of the New York
Yankees came to President Johnson
without solicitation on his part, accord
ing to his statement. He admitted hav
ing heard recently of the existence of
such an arrangement.
The evidence is Interesting to Ameri
ican League club owners in view of the
propaganda issued by the New York
magnates during the Carl Mays con
troversy to the effect that the purchase
of the * Cleveland club from the C. YY.
Somers bankers was partially financed
some years ago by President Johnson
and by Charles A. Comiskey of the
White Sox.
The constitution of the American
Teague forbids the owners of any club
to hold stock in any other club In
the same league. Whether or not that
prohibition applies to the holding of
notes or mortgages against a club in
the same league appears to be a mat
ter or the directors of the league to
NEW YORK, Nov. 29.—Because, he de-
Lares, he holds the welfare of baseball
more sacred than vindication in petty
squabbles with hired help. Col. Jacob
Ruppert thinks it best to leave un
tnswered for the time the insinuations
f president Ban Johnson of the Amerl
i:i League that he (Ruppert) and his
;.:irter. Col. T. L. Hustou, are engaged
.a ..; oinotlou of syndicate baseball, con
r . ,'y to the constitution of the Ameri
ca League.
• , do not wish at this time to an
- . r Johnson's story, or the story attrlb

■‘i intend to embrace the oppor

iJianapolis Grid Team
Walloped by Gary Elks
< ARY, Ind., Nov. 20. —Swept off their
•et by t-rrific drives through their line
. i.u a series of dazzling end runs by
Dixie” Levcrett, former Georgia Tech
iu.l all-Southern quarter back, the In-
Jianupolis Football Clubbers suffered a
54-to-o defeat in the advertised State
aumpionshlp battle with the Gary Elks
here Sunday. The locals scored eight
touchdown* and kicked six goals after
l>uriug the iatter half of the third
l>erlod and throughout the fourth, the
iearns staged a great battle on even
terms, the ball being held iu the center
of the field. Indianapolis was weakened
shortly after the opening of the first
period through the loss of Johnny
Ferree, star tackle, who went out with
a twisted ankle.
Sharing the starlight honors with
I.everett for Gary was Czarnecke, left
tackle, who formerly played with Penn
Fox, Platero. Yott and Ruddles were
the best men in the Indiauapolis llue-up.
Platero plared an especially strong game
for a losing team.

Wilce Views Eastern Games
and Will Adfd Plays for
Coast Contest.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 29.—When Ohio
State, Western Conference football cham
pions, goes west to meet the University of
California eleven at Pasadena on New
Year's day, it is probable the Buckeyes
will be fortified with offensive formations
not seen In their contests with other Big
Ten elevens.
Shortly after Ohio's victory over Illi
nois, Jack Wilce, Buckeye coach, went
East to soe the clash between Penn State
and Pittsburgh and the annual Army and
Navy struggle. W'hlle Coach Wilce may
have gone on a pleasure Jaunt, It is likely
he took the trip to increase his football
The Ohio eo-ich is a smart mentor. He
believes a lot of football can be learned
through observation and be knew the twa
big Eastern games would show the bedit
they had In the East. Asa result Wilce
has returned to Columbus with some
first-hand information about Eastern of
fensive and defensive football.
Having won the Big Ten title. Coach
Wilce will work his men Just as hard
to win the big intersectioual contest.
Ohio already has a strong combined open
and close attack and this offense will be
strengthened by the plays Wilce has
brought back from the East.
The University of California eleven ha
been developed by Andy Smith, former
University of Pennsylvania player, who
coached football at Purdue. When his
playing days were over, Smith became
an assistant mentor at the Quaker instl
tultlon. Then he came to the Middle
West. Since going to the coast, Andy
has developed strong teams, but this
year’s eleven Is the first to wla the
coast title.
Having coached in the Middle West,
Smith probably has a fair Idea of the
caliber of football played In this sec
tion. Whether he has a good knowledge
of Ohio’s system seems Improbable, as
Wllce’s open attack is much farther ad
vanced than It was a year ago. In addi
tion Ohio has a powerful smashing
offense which may cause the coast eleven
some trouble.
The game Is certain to attract at
tention from Middle West gridiron fans.
Eastern enthusiasts also will watch the
result closely because of Smith's former
affiliations with Penn. It is understood
Ohio will start practice Dec. 4 and
leave for the coast two weeks later.
Coach Wilce saw the Harvard-Oregon
game last year at Pasadena and Is aware
of the conditions out there. He rea
lizes his men must be taken We?Ls*6ell
in advance of the contest to beec/V
cllmated. <' ma
