"My chief aim at president of the
Three-Eye kague will be to enforce
economy all along the line so that the
owners of the different clubs may, if
possible, partially recoup for their
losses of several seasons and become
a more cheerful lot," said M. H. Sex
ton, president-elect of the Three-Eye
"Of course the salary question Is the
biggest one we will have to deal with
If the limit that has been set is ob
served, mileage, umpire's salary and
other questions will be of secondary
mportance. With normal weather and
a good schedule the league should be
in better financial condition next fall
than ever before. This disposition
to give up franchises or shift the owner
ship of clubs to other shoulders which
has been so generally manifested par
ticularly since the close of last season
is a bad sign and I am in hopes that
the magnates may be brought to a
better framo of mind."
Mr. Sexton is in favor of a 140-game
schedule, instead of one of 126 games,
as recommended at the Chicago meet
ing, for the reason that the longer
season will do away with 12 or 15 open
dates and will give each city 10 Sun
day games. It costs about $150 a day
to run the ' average Three-Eye club
and open dates are costly.
Mr. Sextan also says he believes that
Rock Island and Davenport should
waive objections to conflicting dates,
at least as an experiment, to give the
schedule makers a wider range In their

tomorrow afternoon and evening wit
ness their first game of indoor base
ball will see a game that is almost the
same as their favorite outdoor game.
Just such changes as were considered
absolutely recessary to make it pos
sible to play the game within doors
were made by the originators of the
game and the result is that the bug3
can easily Imagine they are at the Is
land City park again. In the first
place there are the same number of
players as the fans are accustomed to
seeing and. they will probably be plac
ed in the same general locations,
though one of the outfielders may be
brought up to the diamond to serve as
an additional shortstop between first
and second base. The bases are any
where from 27 to 35 feet apart, accord
ing.to the size- of the-halL and the
same base lines .and foul lines are
used in the indoor game as are used
in the outdoor game.
The ball used Is considerably larger
than the .ordinary baseball and is
rather soft so that if anyone happens
to get hit with it he will not have to
1 lay off the next day from Injuries. The
bat, too, is a little less dangerous look-
ing than the kind Murphy, McBrlde
and the rest of the bunch used to land
on the ball with in the games out at
the park. --The bat the players will use

comparison with a real bat but it does
the business just .the, same. It is be

The actions of the pitcher will soem
a little strange to the fans for a time
at least, as he is the only man who
does not perform about the same at
the outdoor players do. He is not al
lowed to throw the ball as his more
fortunate outdoor brother Is. He must
confine himeelf to pitching the ball
with an underhand swing which makes
speed and curves almost an Impossi
bility. He stands from 30 to 37 feet
away from the batter and has to be
careful to have both his heela on the
line at the rear end of his pitching box
before he pitches or a balk will be
called upon Lini. He does not get the
advantage of foul balls, -either, as does
the outdoor performer. A foul ball,
