Because They Demand More Money Two Great Players Must Loaf OWEN BUSH AND CATCHER ED SWEENEY. Shortstop Owen Bush of the Detroit club and Catcher Edward Sweeney of the Highlanders are hold-outs. These stars, than whom there are no better playing, demand more money than their employers want to pay. The result? It's the old story; the managers have announced that they will get along without their services. Meanwhile the players are out of work. They cannot sign with some other club, for the "reserve rule" and the air-tight baseball cor poration bars them. It is this feature of baseball which Representative Thomas Gal lagher's bill will hit if congress doesn't let fne fire of investigation die for want of fanning. Bush and Sweeney, as human beings with something to sell, claim they are entitled to disiwse of their goods at the highest pos sible figure, but are restrained because they "belong" to the Detroit and New York clubs, which refuse to pay the price asked.
