American and National League Chiefs Gather for Meeting
••(By G. N. LAWS)
(Here are eagles in Kansas,
as the smoke-house song would
liavg im 'believe, those birds which
fly above Newton must have scream
ed gaily Sunday afternoon, when
the coyn-fed apprentices from the
middle-western town wrested the
championship of the Santa Fe sys
tem from San Bernardino at city
park by a score of 25-7. What
sii'rte’d’as a very good game, with
no particular advantage apparent,
ended in a rout, with Newton run
ning - the Californians ragged in the
dual' quarter.
’TV.stinging wind which angled
across the field from the southwest
made the game a straight football
contest, and Newton’s superior
strength in the line finally made
the big difference. That and tak
ing advantage of the breaks. The
chilling gale numbed hands, and
filled eyes with sand; it is no won
der. that fumbles were numerous,
San Bernardino’s lone touchdown
camg.fis. the result of a fumble and
a heroic dash of 60 yards by Mort.
Newton’s first score came as the re
sult of a recovered fumble, and a
long pass, Clauson to Haen. Cau
sqp ran the rest of the distance on
a line play.
As an exhibition of football as
the stands like it, the game was
a flop. For three quarters it was
anybody’s game, but in the fourth
period came the anti-climax, when
San Bernardino relaxed and allow
ed Newton to score three times,
Newton hart the best club, but it
didn’t seem that the difference
amounted to 18 points.
Californian Injured
Perhaps it was Scheppers injury
in the last minutes of the second
quarter that lost for San Bernard
dino, for the towering fullback, who
carries a majority of San Bernar
dino’s load on both offense and de
fense, was unable to do much In
the last half. In the early part
of the game the curly haired
plunger made long gains consist
ently, and shook the Newton backs
with fierce tackles when she for
ward wall yielded and he was
brought into the melee from the

games, the under dog rallies fierce

dino’s spirit sank as Newton’s to
tal soared, and after Taylor had
Recovered a fumble and scored a
#iird touchdown for Newton, the
squad became careless, and
ihe fourth score was just so much
Unnecessary punishment.
„ Benjamin’s performance was
brilliant. His bulk and speed, his
Jjhiftinoss and craft made him

K Many Severe Penalties
" A superfluity of officials made
Jhe game slow, with many severe
•penalties called on both squads.
•Two field judges were added to the
Jsual quota of referee, umpire and
*eadlinesman, and the congestion
jfcade much argument. Five men
van hold at least three different
•opinions, and some of the argu
ments almost came to a pass

fiiean 15 yards either way. In
Justice to the officials, the plays
were all called on the square, but
|o game is perfect, and calling
Ahem too close slows a contest
tlown considerably.
» A gang of urchins, using caps
4.0 r footballs, staged an exhibition
between halves, and a few showed
jparked ability in using the straight
firm, reversing a field of about fifty
and hard tackling.

of argument at this juncture. A
whistle had been blown, it seemed,
but the congestion of officials had

that nobody seemed willing to ad
mit they blew the blast. The
tochdown was allowed amid moans
from Newton, and Pickard convert
ed with a place kick. Score, San

NEW YORK, Dec. 13 (AP) —A proposed salary in
crease of SIOO,OOO for baseball Commissioner Landis was
received without enthusiasm today by National League club
Although the magnates
mously favor re-election of Landis
to another term of seven years,
they indicated today on the eve of
their annual meeting that the cir
cuit. will oppose a move to boost
his salary to $60,000 annually.
Furthermore,, they feel that the
commissioner should increase the
usefulness of his advisory council,
which includes the president of the
National League, and'the American
League vice president, league
spokesmen said.
To Pick Chain]) Batsman
The magnates will go into ses
sion at 1 o’clock in the afternoon
with President John A Heydler,
who will ask the owners to draft
regulations to govern the annual
selection of the league’s champion
Indications are that the league
will approve opening the season
on April 12 and concluding on Oc
tober 2, thus returning to the late
closing date in effect last year.
Barney Dreyfuss of Pittsburg,
spokesman for the National League
schedule makers said, the Septem
ber 25 closing date tried out this
year had proved unsatisfactory.
Only one club in each league he
explained, had been able to com
plete play on schedule time, and
the world series was not advanced
as Commissioner Ladis hoped it
would be.
Even Landis lias been won over

Dreyfuss announced he would

He complained that one national
league team alone owns six minor
league clubs, which he described
as not only unfair to other owners,
but to the minor league player.
“We preach the draft, but we
practice the ‘farm’ he complained.
We're just a hand of hypocrites.”
