MAJOR LEAGUES MAY BOYCOTT THE BIG MINORS!
! "'-v$ PROHIBITIVE PRICES ASKED FOR | STAR PtRFDRMERS ARE RESENTED New York. In-c. 13.? (My (he Associated Press)?A proposal to boycott class AA and class A minor baseball leagues, insofar as the purchase of their ! players wa- concerned, was made at the annual National league meeting to-: day by Charles H. Kbhetts. owner of the Brooklyn club. Other league officials i were said to have favored the idea after discussing prohibitive prices asked) by the minors for star performers, and suggested that the matter be placed i before the joint major leagues' meeting Thursday. "We thought at first," said' one club owner, "that we could tix a limit i price to be paid by majors for minor league players, but decided that this ! would not help matters. The only way to get around high prices is to adopt Mr. RbbettC suggestion and refuse to buy players at any price from leagues refusing to draft." The suggestion of the >KT> n owner. i if adopted by the majors. wuuM place a "stone wall" about the minor stars, even higher than that built by drop ping of thu draft. according to some of the International league owners, who i nntshe<l up their atmual meeting today. ] They asserted that a boycott would servo to antagonise the minors and cause iv br?v?\;ug ui> of the trlenrtly re lations now existing t'ommissioner l.andis. they sail. would hardly stand I for such a condition. N??d of Mor? Player*. In his report to the National league president H?*ydlcr said he believed the time had come when the major leagues should consider means of Increasing the supply of skilled players, and to give proper training opportunities to young men desiring to enter the professional game from the college tield or the sand lots, but who decline to join minor league clubs for fear that their ad vancement to higher classes and higher pay would be restricted. The rulirg permitting clubs to ar range their own spring training dates was retained. A discussion of all mat ters regarding the league's relations with the imnois was postponed until tomorrow. Heydler'o Suggestions. For consideration of the league, which will meet again tomorrow. Mr. Heydlcr made the following suggestions: Legislation or action looking to the arrest and conviction of pop bottle throwers In baseball parks. " l*rotection of umpires in exhibition games between American and National league clubs by giving umpires power oi>r de| ortmcnt on the field. Arrangements of exits from the play ing fields at several National league parks so'that umpires would not be compelled !?> come In contact with players of either club when leaving the Held. Joining with leagues in an effort to secure a return to normal railroad rates, and especially to secure elimination of the iO percent surcharge on 1'ullman tickets. Dreyfuee Chairman. Barney Prevfuss of Pittsburgh was elected chairman of the new board of directors of the National league. Other members are: William Yeeck. Chicago; Charles A. Stoneham. New York, and George Grant. Boston. Mr. Heydlcr's report showed that the salaries paid last season to managers and players in the National league alone were over $1,000,000. Compared with five years ago. this is an Increase of approximately seventy percent. STANSBuht FAVORS SECTIONAL TOURNEY Mountaineer Director of Athletics Dis cusses Stat* Basketball Tournaments. Special to the Intelligencer Morgantown.

During this per iod. too, an animated discussion has been going on in state newspapers about i th:s very thing, so that to-day. In reply to a direct query from the Parkersburg j News. Dire, tor Stansbury gave out a I ' statement in which he said that there | were several reasons why the Unlver- j sity could not he drawn Into the high j school basketball situation. In the firs; ' place. a<i ording to Stansbury. the tour- j nament for state high j. hool.s was orlgl- I n ite l at Weslevan eight years ago am) ' the fruits of th:s Initial move belonged : to the Methodists as long as they wish- I cd to run the affair, or a? long as they j had the support of the high schools of j the state in carrying it on.^ In the next place, till the new gymnasium Is pro vided heie. no adequate facilities are av u.'able for the tournament. In any i event. Director Stansbury said, West Virginia would not carry on the tourna ment as now conducted because of the numberojH complaints about five games in two days placing too great a strain on the players. The sectional tourna ment idea ought by all means to be adopted and Director .Stansbury Inti mated that If Weslejan did not adopt this new plan by the time the new Mountaineer gymnasium ts available, the state university might initiate a tournament ?n this new basis.

None of I these, however, will contain all the varsity players, and all tho teams j played will be given to understand that ( none of these outfits represent the unl | verslty. A general warning to the effect that teams purporting to be the Moun ! talneer varsity were giving false im pressions has already been issued. This ! action was taken because of the fact I i that several "pickup" teams have gone | out in the past and been beaten while ! represented, or rather misrepresented.i I as being the varsity, when at times ' they had no varsity players whatever, j and never mor* than two or three. It ! seems certain that at least two t?ann composed of members of the varsity | squad will go out from her* during the holidays, but It has been mado clear that these teams are not to represent the university or to be advertised as ? the Mountaineers. There !s also a strong possibility that | Stadsvold, who is one of the cleverest forwards In tho country, and who is too I far away from his home in Minnesota I to return for the holidays, may go out and play with one of the teams He h is not et deycided to do this, but Is said to he considering ^thc matter and will probably reach a decision within the next several days. His presence will greatly strengthen the lineup of one of the teams. NAMES ALL-VALLEY SEMI-PRO ELEVEN Sports Kdltor Intelligencer.

" ..? . New York -wants a winner. The base ball fans of New- York are about as hardbolled as any in the country. They will applaud a safe cracker If he can hil a baseball, arid they seem to care little about what a man is If he plays (food I ball. Hut deep down in their hearts the fans aro sound. The passing of George Burns has perhaps raised more real sentimental protest than anythliiK that hs hastened in New York, not excepting i the passing of Iairry Boyle. I The New York fans aro paying? a Just tribute to one of the finest characters the sport has produced. Th? fact that perhaps his legs are not as good as they were?possibly his eyea are not as quick, due to the fact that he has play ed In the ruinous Bun field so many years. But the fans of New York, vic tory lovers as they are. would roor harder for Burns In left field than they will for many a year for any hero who comes along. There Is no sentiment In business or in baseball, of course, but In spite of that claim of owners and managers the fact Is that If all sentiment goes out of tha game the game Itself loses stand ing. Burns deserves a tribute from the fans. Quiet, gentlemanly, always hus tling. always giving the best that was In him to his team, with a name that never has been mentioned In any scan dal, In any rowdyism, he honored the game he played and gave to It more j than he took out. He won respect, which Is finer than applause, and he never alibied. A clean, decent man, on and off, the field, a great hall player and a great man?he was as near the type of finest sportsman as baseball pr >duees. When the fans hid good-hve to "Goorgle"?the Georgte they have | cheered so long?It will be with sincer ity, which will find expression when the roar of welcome greets him on his first return In another uniform. At to Johnny *awllngt. The deals that the Giants have made probably will relegate Johnny Ham-lings to the bench, and perhaps to some other club. Bawling*. the real hero of tin : last world's series, who did more than ? any other Giant to win and then to save ' the series, seem destined to follow the footsteps of othor world's series heroes who flashed, who won for their tcan.s an?l went out entirely. There was Kddle Huhn and George Rohe. Hahn saved one series for the I White Sox and dropped l?ack to the minors. Uohe. with his sensational hit ting, won that series and was hack In j the minors the next spring. Olf llrnrlk son with his timely trip's broke Math ewson's defense and won a series for the Boston K"d Sox, anil he, too, dtsap. peared. Another remarkable case was that of Whltemun, who won for the Bos ton Bed Sox against the I'ubs. playing the most sensational ball over seen In any world's series, excepting that of Charlie jforzog for !be Giants In tliut series against flic ll.-d Sox. of all tip records of reaching ilrst, bitting and fielding ever made in h series Whlteman holds the palm, and lie wound up his re markable performance with a diving cat.-h of a fly ball which saved a game , and almost broke bis neck And tbo next spring he was ha. k In the sii -k ; It seems the fate ,.f these shooting ' stars to go out quickly.

He has been playing sev eral years, seems to bo a fairly con sistent man. anil he Improved during the last year, although the scouts say no has not shown anything to Justify those high hopes with which the Cincinnati fans try to solace themselves every win ter. The acquisition of Yitt to play third for the Reds really Is another of those smart moves that has made Moran sland out as a manager. Jle has a whnle of an outfield not and VItt Is n corking third baseman, admitting the fact that he has nut shown much with the Red Sox.

Fordhruu Meckel! a Move. l-'ordihain Cni vei sity, the scrappy, ag gressive Catholic school lip in the Bronx, seldom does things by halves. It tried a season of what was practical ly semi-professional athletics and when It decided to clean house it had the heart in it. Fordhant lias gone the entire limit in turning from questionaide to clean ath-i leties. it lias adopted student manage-' ment. graduate coaching and lias shown the way toward finer and better relations with other colleges by insti tuting the otto year residence rule for athletes. Korilham's nttempt $)?> build up a great athletic record by p <. rmlttlr.g lux method* in selecting failed, because at heart the school was not back of tho Brlckley regime. The majority of grads. and perhaps of the midurgrads. wanted graduate coaching jmd sttaight spurt. Frank ilargan, who was a hero when lie was at Fordhnm, is lack in charge and the houser leaning is to be complete. Ford bam takes u great for ward step in athleti -s in this move. The New Tennis Plan The next national amateur tourna ment III tennis is 11Ki-1> to lirlng one of the most diastic changes ever made in sport. The move to 1 the draw" for. the amateur championship is back ed by the great majority of the first fifty players in llo- coijntiy. and the chances are that the national commit tee, when it mee'.s in New York next week, will vote t.. make this change In the drawings of the tournament. Arbitrary placing of the players. In stead of leaving the pairings entirely to chance, is fa\ort 1 by the majority of experts and, l?\v einl doubt It would result in letter mat hca and more sus tained interests in a tournament such as the national has eorne to ive. The question is whether sufficient faith would lie placed m tbr governing body's honesty ami lack of prejudice. It would be possible under any prun-ss of ? ? . llig the draw for a prejudiced committee to make or unmake cham pions. and it might l>e well before adopting any such arbitrary system to weigh the chances of such a thing hap l cuing hi the futuie.

Tbua * happily the cast, the middle west and' the "west share equally In the honors achieved hv these three great football) men." , With all due respect to the above, named tientlemcn, and their cnvlable* records, it would seem that the feat performed by Lester W. Radrnan on September -till, at Fairmont, W. Va when West Virginia Wesley an met West Virginia University has been for^' goticn. Had ma n in the second quarter of that game standing on his own b\r yard line drop-kicked the ball over West Virginia's cross bar for the lone thiee point tally scored by West Vir ginia Wcsleyun for the entire season. The Lucky Kick The drop-kick came as a complete surprise and was easily the outstand ing feature of the game. The ball wit Wesleyan's on the 51 yard mark, and fourth down. Wesleyan had been punt ing right along, and West Virginia play crs set themselves for another punt" w hen the Wesley an backfield lined up in kick formation. Radman received the ball glanced toward the goal posta and kicked. The bail sailed through, the air landed on the cross bar and bounced o:i over for Wesleyan's loaf counter of the game. West Vlrglnfh papers for the next week commented' upon this kick and said that It was doubtful it if would be equalled during' the year. Aceordln gto above article' ? it has not. Is Speed Demos ?. Inside information discloses that" Ka'lman had only reported back to thg' Wesieyan squad two days before the West Virginia University game. ThiS* adds more luster to tho feat, and It la) only fair and right that the little speejf demon with the lucky toe be given the place he has earned, that of being the l'remler Drop-Kicker of the United Suites for the season of 1921. Radmalr Is called a speed demon for the slmpW reason that he has a long record of track performances behind him. ThV little fellow modestly admits that the Elgin watch he carries around Is a prize he won In 1916 when he ran the 100 yard handicap In nine and three fifth seconds. So far as Is known at \ this time Radman holds the record for the :.u yard :r.door dash. In 1918 In Pittsburgh he ran the 50 yards in five end two-hfths seconds, and established a record for the Allegheny Mountain Association of the A. A. U. CATHEDRAL 41; : !
