Protest Against Pact Pro
visions Expected to Come
Out at Next Joint Meeting.
International News Sports Editor.
NEW YORK. Dec. 28. Sentiment
against several provisions in the pro
posed new national major-minor lea ;ue
agreement is growing among the minors
and will be strongly voiced at the next
Joint meeting in Chicago Jan. 12, it de
veloped today.
The minors agreed to act jointly with
the majors In reconstructing the govern
ment of the game, it Is pointed out. with
the understanding that they were to have
an equa’ voice in all future councils In.
which they might have any Interest, and
they will Insist on this right.
While the text of the proposed agree
ment has not been made public, it Is
apparent that, although sitno of the
minor leagues may be satisfied with the
pact, this sentiment Is not unanimous.
In a circular sent out by George H.
Maine*, president of the Michigan-On
taTlo League, and a member of the minor
league committee, sentiment as expressed
by the objecting faction Is set forth In
a lengthy statement embodying the fol
lowing principal points:
An important clause In any major
minor pact should provide for the settle
ment of disputes between leagues, clubs
or Individuals of the parties to the agree
That it should provide for making
rules, regulations or amendments of mu
tual interest to both parties.
That it should officially recognize
Judge K. M. Ijtndls as the commissioner
of organized baseball, empowering him
to act for majors and minors alike.
That It should provide for some voice
for the 'minors except where "action di
rectly - fleeting a minor league club is
to be taken."
And that the minors should have a
voice on any advisory council which is
ft rmed.
The circular also voices objection to
the manner in which the proposed agree
ment treats settlement of the draft ques
tion. As some of the minors see it. one
section of the tentative part could be
used as a settlement of the draft ques
tion by the commissioner and a leage
made to accept the terms decided upon
by him.
The suggestions embodied in the cir
cular are not antagonistic. They are \
meant to be constructive and to strength- j
en the position of the minors.

Line-up for Clash
With Normal Quint
Locals Have Chicago Star and
Bacon to Help in To
night’s Game.
Reports have it that all who have seen
Indians State Normal In action on the
hardwood state that Normal has one of
the best teams it has had In years.
Normal has been the only team In the
state able to hand the Vincennes “Y"' the
short end of the score and only last
night Wabash fell before the "Y ’ team
bv a six-point margin. Therefore it
looks like one of th*-e last ditch battles
again tonight for the Merchants at the
Y. M. C A
In view of the fact that Normal ap
pears so strong and the Merchants will
be without the services of Btonebreaker,
they hate looked in other directions to
strengthen their lineup. Johnson, of Chi
cago, has been signed to take his place
and in view of the fact that Johnson Is
supposedly one of the best forwards In
the West he will fill the position with
out the last bit of trouble He held
down a forward position with the Illi
nois Athletic Club when they won the
A. A. I'. championship, and was n mem
ber of the famous Great Lakes team
Since then he has played with the Wait
ing Owls .ind the Fort Wayne K of C„
and ba organized the Big Five Pro team
at Chicago.
Bacon will be at his regular position at
floor guard tonight, and along with Stev
ens will make a hard life for any for
ward. H. Stevens will he :-een at the
other forward and Taylor has been
switched to center. The game appears
on paper to have all the marks for a
thriller ar.d everyone should come ex
pecting to see a hair raiser.

Just Closing.
Fnited I’ress Sport* Editor.
NEW YORK, Dec. 28.—Few new kings
were crowned during the most eventful
year of sport just coming to a close.
Champions came and champions went,
but most of the old timers like Willie
Hoppe survived the rush of another year
and retained their places on the throne.
The list of 1920 "bests" includes:
Boxers—Heavyweight, Jack Dempsey.
IJglit heavyweight, Georges Carpentier.
Middleweight, Johnny Wilson. Welter
weight. Jack Britton. Lightweight.

Three ring champions were displaced.
Georges Carpentier won the light heavy
weight title by knocking out Battling
Levinsky; Mike O’Dowd lost his crown
to Johnny Wilson on a decision, and
Joey Lynch beat Herman for the bantam
The mooted question of the heavy
weight wrestling championship was set
tled when Joe Stecher threw Earl Cad
dock In a bout accepted as a world's
title affair and was himself beaten by
"strangler" Lewis in New Y’ork the night
of December 13.
William M. Johnston lost bU tennis
championship to William T. TUden, who
also annexed the British court champ
ionship. S. Davidson Herron also failed
I to hold the amateur golf championship,
! which was won by Chick Evans. Ted
, Bay, the British star, took the American
open title from Walter Hagen. Hobby
McLean lost the title in skating to Oscar
Matheieson, the Norwegian.
After being missing from the top
circle for some time, Ernest Barry, the
British pro-sculler, returned to the se
lect circle by beating Felton for the
By Resolute's victory over Shamrock
IV. America retained the championship
of the seas, and the Olympic champion
ship was again annexed by the Yankees.
NEW YOB A, Dec. 28.—With three com
i anions passing over the stage In action
at the Garden —Dempsey, Leonard und
Herman —it appears to be about time for
Johnny Wilson to speak hi* piece. John
ny !s the owner of the middleweight title
through the kindness of a friendly deci
sion. He wrested the crown from Mlxo
O'Dowd through a lueky streak of for
tune in Boston .Since that epoch In
Wilson’s career he's ke.pt away from
.best* diggings In fact. John has done
llitle quarreling: his last efforts reunit
ed In his being pasted freely by a George
When Wilson was given ©'Dowd's silk
hat he premised the latter a chance for
his old title. Mike has awaited the
chance, but up to press time Wilson
hasn’t paid the slightest attention to
• •'Dowd’s plejs. There was a big offer
dangling before Wilson to fight O'Dowd
In a tit!.* event. Wilson declined on the
ground he wasn't in good physical shape
Now Ms value as a drawing card bn* de
creased to a terrible extent and the best
offer be could get would be on a per
centage basis.
As long as O'Dow.l had not heard
from Wilson he’s beginning to get heart
and ser.d out alight claims on the crown.
If Wilson doesn't defend it soon t ere
isn’t the least doubt that he will h<* de
throned and O'Dowd's claim recognized.
The manner in which Wilson wu the
title from O'Dowd will help Michael lu
claiming his former diadem.
OSHKOSH, Wls., Dec. 2*. In a fast
match before a large audience, Henry
StoeiT of this city, mi I lie weight wrestler,
successfully defended his laurels against
Martin Zoll of Green Bay here. The first
fall went to Stoeff by a double toe bold.
Zoll got the second fail with a scissors
and liammerlock. In the third fall Stoeff
won after fine minutes by a scissors and
double wrist lock.

Wabash Basketeers Lose
to Vincennes ‘Y’ Five
in Thrilling Struggle
VINCENNES, Ind., Dec. 28.—Baffling
their opponents In the early moments of
play with a brilliant dash of speed and
some remarkable goal shooting, the Vltt
cennes Y. M. C. A. basket athletes regis
tered a 81 to 25 victory over Coach Pete
Vaughan s strong Wabash College quin
tette here last night. It was Wabash’s
first defeat.
Both teams were in splendid condition
and played remarkable basket-ball
throughout the contest, keeping the large
crowd In an uproar from the first to the
last minute of play. After Vincennes had
gained a whirlwind start and appeared
on the road to an easy win, the Scarlet
athletes rallied and fought like fury to
capture the first half lead, but were one
pi hit shy of the Vincennes dozen total
when the rest period arrived.
The second naif was almost an exact
re etitioii cf the first, with the exception
the the locals boosted their lead five
points late in the session.
G. Ki.xmiUer and M-Clure led the scor
ing for Vincennes, getting six and three
baskets, respectively, while Goldsberry
and Adams carried the brunt of the Wa
bash offensive work. Goldsberry counted
five times from the court and three tiroes
from the ftul line, while Adams caged
four field goals.
Members of the 1920 Belmont football
team who are Interested la the receipts
and disbursements of the team should
call M. W. Davis, Main 0939, or address
him at 225 North Cupitol avenue.
WHENEVER Ty Cobb's advent as a big league manager is discussed
some gentleman in the party usually chimes in with the thought that
Cobb can not ej.pect to hold a team to discipline when he never has yielded
to discipline himself. But these birds are shooting wide of the mark.
They point out that Cobb reported late for spring training and ignored
other club rules. These rules are designed for the good of the players
who do not study, judge for themselves or consider seriously their own
good. No one ever has accused Ty Cobb of injuring his playing ability
or lessening his greatness as a super-star through “breaking rules."
Cobb studied his own makeup and physical needs as thoroughly as he
studied pitchers and batters and baserunners. That he schooled himself
to be the brainiest, greatest player in the game proves that he managed
himself successfully.
When Ty knows that the responsibility for the success of a ball club
rests on his shoulders alone he’ll study that ball club —the players on it —
with the same thoroughness. If he enters his managerial career with the
same spirit he entered the playing end the gang is sure to hear from Tyrus
Raymond Cobb, alias the Georgia peach.

bers of the De I’auw basket-ball squad
arrived here today front their homes to
begin practicing for the game scheduled
for Jan 11 with the. Vincennes Y. M. C. A.
Coach Buss plans to hold practice every
day this week.
Tiger bnsketeers bad planned to spend
the entire vacation at home, hut an early
return was made necessary by the sched
uling of an extra game with the Vln
neeces "Y" shortly after the squad left.
The game will be played at Vincennes.
Another reason for the early return
Is to enable Coach Buss to pick n man
from the squad to fill the place of "Tiny'’
lllrt at back guard. Because of a del!
c'eiicy In studies, Hlrt recently was de
clared Ineligible to play for the re
mainder of the season by Dr. W. M.
Blanchard, secretary of the faculty, and
Coach Blit, B. This Is a serious problem,
as there doesn’t seem to be any back
guard material in the squad. Hlrt is a
local athlete and has been making an
excellent showing at his position.
Following the “Y” contest, the Indiana
Dentals will a 1 pear here ' -e,,. :1
