THE NEWS SCIMITAR. . FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1K0. CHANCE FOR CROOKS TO RETURN Major League Magnates - Would Not Dare to f Employ Them. It was amazins " find a belief among many baseball men that the public will iorgn the erundal, writes Hugh Kullerton. Tho attfndanee upon and the enthusiasm over the Cleveland gomes was pointed out as proof that the farm already are for Bettlns. The faith of the public, ihey said, wn not shaken. The pub lic Iwltevts all the crooks are caiitfht and that the others nre Innocent. So real harm done, after all. Thty talked aloni; that line. They probably bellevo It. They said that the clamor against the slacking play er who dodged military service died out quickly and that the public for got it as soon as the slacker made a, few base hit. Meaning that they would forget In this k They do not believe in the force of public opinion, or else they believe that baseball fun 1 not cure. I heard one wiiRcr offered that two club owners who were named would be bidding for the services of Buck Weaver and Joe Jackson next spring. I heard one man assert that It would 1. possible to create a public de mand for the return of Joe Jackson to the game. In spite of the low opinion these persons hold for the force of public opinion, no one need to be alarmed. No matter what the legal technicali ties may be there is no danger that any one of tho crooked players oust ed from oasebull ever will have the nerve to face an American league crowd in a baseball game. 'IT WAS LIKE THIS, JUDGE- HEYDLER DENIES HE PANNED BAN National League President ; Says Somebody Mis V quoted Him. it is with no little astonishment that we read the application or jonn A. Heydler, president Of the National league, for membership in baseball's "I-Dkln t-Kay-lt ' ciun, writes ua mon Runyon In tho New York Amer ican. , . !, Mi YTuvHlor miw rienlen according to ati interview, that ho said any of the things about mn jonnson, at tributed to the Heydlerlan tongue. In Mr. Heydler says it is not true that he considered suspicious cir cumstances In the first game of the world's series, and that Johnson waved him aside. "Nothing ' of the BOrt happened," says Mr. Heydler, "for I had no suspicions." After due reflection we are con. K.. thn lust rtnrt of Afr Heydler's latest interview is true. At least wo accept It as true until Mr. Heydler -says he did not say this either.' A man who oould find nothing to arouse his suspicions In the state ment of a Christy Mathewson that a Hal Chase was not on the level, would scarcely find anything sus picious In a world's series game that fooled thousands of spectators. A man whose suspicions were not excited bv the bald statement of one ball plavcr that another hall player had offered him a certain sum of monev to commit a crooked act Is Just naturally un unsuspicious per sun. We apologise to Mr. Heydler. We thought for a few moments that he had suddenly arisen above the dead ly dull clerical level usually as signed to presidents of the National league, and becomo an executive in bis own right. Duster Malls, It Is said, proponed to go into the movies. He hasthe scenario outlined. ll Is to bo the hero who was turned down in his home town (Brooklyn) only to go out into the world, make a reputa tion and come back with the rival team (Cleveland) and confound the natives to say nothing of lifting tho mortgage and copping the girl. , Joe Guyon, who jumped a cufitract with Atlanta during mldseason only to'be taken back when the club could use him, is now playing foot ball with Jim Thorpe's professional gridiron team. 11a also is assistant coach of the Georgia Tech football squad and makes the trip from At lanta to Canton each week-end to fill his playing engagements.
