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
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

parks so'that umpires would not be

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.

tournament, the main feature of which

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

the fruits of th:s Initial move belonged :
to the Methodists as long as they wish- I

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.

? known that the squad would have about '
I two weeks of practice before playing a j

However. I'oai'li Stadsvold intimated I
j today thai lie will probably allow the ]
formation of three or four "barnstorm
i ing" teams front the varsity to play in
I various sections of the state. 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.

team of Fulton next Saturday evening
tn tho Warwood high gym. This Is the
first home game for the Warwood lads,
and they are confident of making a

lirocco at Madison Square Garden. On
paper, this patr is <the class.
Goullet Is one of the greatest six-day
bicycle riders of all time. And he is
right in his prime. Horn In Olppslund,
Australia, in 1891, ho won his tlrst slx
day rao? tenmeil with J<>e Kngler in
Paris in 1913. He repeated the f?at
that sfaion at MudUor. Square Garden,
and again In 1914. He was out of the
191K race, having enlisted In the Naval
Aviation Corps, where ho served dur
ing the war, hut won the all-around
championship at Newark and the s'.x
day race at the Garden In 1019.
Teamed with Goullet this year Is
Maurice Hrocco. winner of last year's
e\?nt. Hrocco is of Italian parentage,
horn at Kismes, France, In 1885. He
ran third in the world's amateur paced
championship at I'aris in 1907, and ts
one of the Rreatest road racers In
iluropo. In the Garden races Broccu

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
Burns deserves a tribute from the
fans. Quiet, gentlemanly, always hus

In him to his team, with a name that
never has been mentioned In any scan

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

chances are that the national commit

It would be possible under any prun-ss

Dropping: Ball Ov?r W?rt Virginia Goal
At Paircnont Tr?~m 51 Yard Else ?
Great Teat
Special to the Intelligencer.
Huckhannon, IV. Va., Dec. 13.?Wes- '
leyan does not exactly desire any ar
gument with the far west drop kickers,
but that there Is a misunderstanding
somewhere is very much In evidence
Judging from 1 arkc H. Davis' foot ball
review under the heading of "Football
Season .Marked by Notable Achleve
A'hievements." In Baltimore American
spurt section lor Sunday December
The article which has caused this ?;)
comment appears in the third column
of Davis' review. The article follows;' t
Three players share first place as
the premier drop kick men of the )
United States, all having kicked goals )
from the 48-yard mark. These three,
men ate Malcolm P. Aldrlch of ^ale,
who. scored his drop against Brown;,
1 (iul Custner, of Notre Dame, whoi yf
piade his record against Rutgers; and
Robert Flske of Wyoming, who covered*
this distance against Idaho. 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

Effect?Guards Piay Opponents
In h great fiamo, played before 400
ardent fans of the lloor game. Cathedral
high school's basketball team opened Its
season last evening by trouncing the
Br.ngeport high school quintette 41 to
15. The game was interesting from be- *
ginning to end, and many plays were
made that brought the crowd to its feet.
Cathedral started off like a whirlwind,
and before the Ohio lads realized It, had
scored several baskets. The score see
sawed for a few minutes and then the
Cadets forged ahead to a oomfortable
lead. At the half the score stood 22-8.
In the last period, Brother Constant'#
boys slowed up, and played easily, but
careful, using clever passing tactics, .
and shooting baskets with great accur
acy. * . ?
t or Cathedral, Captain Beattle .wag
easily the star, caging se\en baskets. '
Brindlcy, star forward for the visitors
was the best man on his team. Several
players were barred from the game on
personals, and Referee Woods' handling
was well worthy of praise.
