WAR TAX LOOrflS AS
Club Owners Feel Minor Clubs
Would Be Unable to Stand
COAST THOUGHT SECURE
Major Leagues, Too, Likely to Be
Able to Weather Storm Question
Arises Whether Clubs or Fans
Should Contribute to Fund.
Will the Government tax on amuse
ments kill baseball?
Coast League magnates are of the
opinion that it will kill the game on
the Coast, unless the player limit and
salary limit are cut down. Major
league owners are not of one mind on
the subject. The majority agree that
it will hurt if the Impost should be
saddled on the clubs. In that case the
majority of the clubs would lose money,
a few would break even and a lesser
number would be able to declare divi
dends. There is still more doubt on what
effect it would have on the game
should the public be compelled to bear
the added burden. Some argue that the
average fan would not object to paying
a few cents extra on each admission,
while others maintain the attendance
will be cut down to such an extent
that the owners will have to go out
of business. Those who have not lost
their heads, although the situation is
admittedly serious, maintain that there
is no reason to worry, that the fans
will be willing to pay anything within
reason If thev want the a?am tn be
part of the Nation's life.
Millions to Be Derived.
It is argued that the fans should
support the game from patriotic rea
sons, as every penny which goes
through the gates will put something
In Uncle Sam's Treasury. The Gov
ernment has calculated that $75,000,000
will be raised through the tax on
amusements. No figures have been 1
presented to show how much of this
baseball is figured to pay. It has been
shown that the total income from or
ganized baseball should amount to
$650,000, provided the conditions of
last year are duplicated. The major
eagues would contribute half of this
sum, from which the conclusion would
be drawn that it would be a good
thing to keep the game going.
Taking the known income of certain
clubs in the major leagues for a basis.
each figures to pay an average total
tax of $25,000. Some would pay more
and others less. The tax of at least
two clubs probably will reach $40,000
apiece. Some would be as low as
$15,000. Basing the tax on last year's
gross receipts, Detroit, for Instance,
would pay slightly more than $30,000.
The White Sox, Giants and Red Sox
would pay more than this.
Cemlakfj Is Patriotic.
As far as the White Sox are con
cerned. President Comiskey already is
paying 10 per cent of his receipts to
the Red Cross fund, and the chances
are, should it become necessary to
raise the prices, the South Side fans
would gladly contribute whatever was
asked. Other owners, however, are not
as well fortified, and It would mean
bankruptcy for Just a few, but not
With the minors It is different.
Class AA leagues might get by. but
none of the smaller leagues could ex
ist were the tax put on the clubs, and
it Is a question whether or not fans
in the smaller towns would stand for
an increase in prices.
Taking the Northwestern League,
for Instance. It Is calculated that
each club would be taxed between
$1000 and $1500. As dividends are
practically unknown in this circuit,
the coin would have to come out of
Game Flourishes tn Canada.
Taking all the leagues below the AA
classification. It is estimated that they
would contribute approximately $200,
000 a year. The three larger minors.
Pacific Coast, American Association
and the International, would be hit for
a sum close to $225,000. This would
be a big burden for these leagues, as
the profits at the end of each season
are not large. The magnates do not
think that the attendance could be
kept up Bhould the prices be Increased
and they are certain that none could
afford to pay it out of their own
pockets. There is already an agita
tion in the American Association for
the closing of its gates. This is part
ly caused by the great deal of rain.
Figures have been presented from
Canada showing that baseball is flour
ishing, despite the war.
Perhaps the situation will adjust
Itself satisfactorily to all.
