Agreements Signed Between
Major and Minor Leagues.
Chiropractic Knowledge Declared Invaluable in Fixing Up Ailing
Baseball Players.
Conlract Signed Willi Judge tan
dls Making Him Commissioner
Willi $50,000 Salary.
CHICAGO. Jan. 12. Organized
baseball today swept the last vestage
of disagreement from its ranks in
conferences which brought signed
peace agreements not only between
the major and minor leagues, but be
tween the Individual club wners.
The two major leagues signed the
new national agreement making
Judge Landis baseball commissioner
with supreme powers and the minor
leagues signed an agreement with
Judge Landis as their ruler, but it
differed in one word from that signed
by the majors. This difference, It de
veloped, was due to a misunderstand
ing in the Joint meeting of drafting
committees yesterday when the
agreement was drawn up, and it wiu
announced that as soon as possible
the minors would sign an agreement
Identical with the one approved by
the majors.
The individual major league club
owners also signed a contract agree
ing not to critic'se each other pub
licly and to accept any decision made
by Judge Landis.
Included were President Johnson of
the American league and two of the
three club ow'ners who have fought
his administration Charles A. Comis-
key of Chicago and Jacob Rappert of
New lork. Harry Frazee of Boston
the third, announced he would sign.
Supreme Power Demanded.
The signing of the national agree
ment brought a sharp statement from
Judge Landis concerning the powers
he must be given and led to erroneous
reports that he had issued an ultima
tum giving the club owners lo min
utes to make changes he demanded.
The judge did not set a time limit.
but did issue an ultimatum telling
the club owners that his powers must
be supreme.
When the new national agreement
was brought before the league rep
resentatives, it contained a section
saing that the commissioner after an
investigation, "could recommend such
action as he deemed advisable."
Judge Lpandis Interrupted to. say
that this must read "take such ac
tion." "You have told the world that my
powers are to be supreme," he said.
"To give me the power merely to 'rec
ommend' takes all power out of my
hands. I want you to know that either
I must have the power to take such
action as I wish, or else you had bet
ter seek a new commissioner. I iouid
not take this job for all the gold in
the world unless I knew my hands
were to be free."
Word Is Chanced.
On motion of President Johnson,
the major leaguers voted to substitute
the word "take" for "recommend,"
but it was found that the minors
were not in official session and the
matter would have to go through
their drafting committee again.
Hfty-slx minor league representa
tives in a standing vote assured the
judge that they had considered "rec
ommend" the same as "lake," but
that as soon as possible the word
would be changed and they would

agreement will remain in effect so

New players' contracts covering
what the club owners termed the
"ethics" of the game were approved
by the majors.
One clause provides that the player
pledge loyalty to his club artd "pledge
h:ni-,elf to the American public to
conform to high standards of fair
play and good sportsmanship."
BALL club simply must have
a trainer these days If It ex
pect to keep in any kind
of condition," soliloquized Walt Mc
Credie yesterday as it came his turn
to bat in the Hot Stove league. "A
good trainer can almost pay his way
in the saving on doctor bills alone, to
say nothing of the increased effi
ciency of the players and the extra
games won on that account.
"But he must be a good trainer
don't overlook that. The bushes are
full of half-baked trainers who nose
as the real thing, and one of them
may ruin your ball club before you
get wise to him. Some of these birds
tear a player almost to pieces with
their rub-a-dub work and leave bim
worse off than he was before, It's
some job to get a real trainer.
They're scare.
"I always like to play In San Fran
cisco, because there's a fellow there
named Carroll who is a wizard at fix
ing up ailing ball players. He takes
them in hand and before you know
it they're In shape and full of pep.
You can certainly notice the differ
ence in their playing.
"This man Carroll was Just ordi
nary until a chiropractic doctor down
there, named Richardson, gave him
a course of some kind and taught him
a lot about nerves and muscles and
joints and vertebrae and all that.
Now he's a bear at it.
"This man Richardson who taught
Carroll sure did our ball club a good
turn here in Portland one day last
year. Art Koehler, catcher, had been
limping around on a bum knee for
about a couple of months. He'd had
his knee knocked out of joint In a
game, and though it was set back
and doctored, it Just seemed to get
worse instead of better. Poor Art
couldn t even straighten his leg, and
it hurt him to walk, let alone run.
"Richardson was in Portland on a
vacation trip and he stepped Into the
clubhouse one day after a game.
Koehler was nursing his knee and
wondering what was the matter with
it. Richardson took a look and let
out a whistle.
"The only thing the matter with
your knee. Koehler. is that it's still
out cf place,' he says. They never did
get it back Into joint for you.'
"Well, he sat there beside Koehler
and showed us how the knee surely
was out of joint and talked sooth
ingly to Art and said he'd fix It for
him all right, and not to worry. Art
sat there all relaxed when all of a
sudden Richardson grabs his leg and
begins twisting and hauling and tug
ging It around. He gave it one final,
awful yank and by golly you could
hear that knee go 'click'! We all sat
there petrified, but Koehler almost
went through the ceiling.
'Richardson smiles and lets go the
leg and says to Koehler, 'Now stand
on it.' Koehler was that surprised he
might have been hypnotized. He
stands on his leg. 'Bend your knee,'
says Richardson. Koehler bends it.
"That doesn't hurt now. does it?"
says Richardson. 'No,' says Koehler,
I'm goshdinged if it does. I don't
know what you did to it, but It
doesn't hurt any more.' Koehler was
so tickled he ran around the club
l ouse, and his knee didn't hurt him
bit. What's more, it didn't hurt
him sny the rest of the season."
There's another man here in Port
land who's a wonder at fixing up ball
players. That's Doc Chandlee. He
isn't a trainer, but a chiropractic
doctor, but he says he may take a
vacation this summer and travel
around with the ball club for the
fun of it. I certainly hope he takes
that vacation.
"Maybe you remember what a time
Rudy Kaluo had trying to win any
games for Portland up to past the
middle of last season, and then how
he suddenly began to pitch like a
house afire and finished In a whirl
of smoke. Doc Chandlee fixed him.
He took an X-ray picture of Kallio's
spine and found a misplaced vertebra.
This vertebra pressed on the nerves
to Rudy s right shoulder, and he
simply couldn't get anything on the
ball. He was treating himself for a
sore shoulder all the time, when the
real trouble was this misplaced ver
tebra. "Doc snapped that Into place mighty
quick after the X-ray located it. Kal
lio was a different man from that
day. I look for him to win a lot of
games for us this coming season.
'The doc did the same thing for
Paddy Siglin. Paddy had a collision
with another ballplayer in a game
and wrenched his back. He felt punk
afterward and couldn't seem to get
any pep into his ---playing. Just
dragged himself around. Doc took an
X-ray picture of his spine, and, sure
enough, he had a misplaced vertebra,
too, wrenched out of position in that
"That shows' what a real man can
do for a ball club. Believe me, I in
tend to have a trainer this coming
season, but he must be a good one.
Unless he's a real one it's worse than
useless carting him around the cir
cuit. If the doc concludes to take
that vacation, just watch our smoke."
Here's another eastern comment on
California's victory at Pasadena. It's
by Robert W. Maxwell, sports editor
of the Philadelphia Evening Public
Ledger, who incidentally is also one
of the big time football referees back
there. Says Maxwell:
"The result of the Ohio State-CaW-fornia
football game in Pasadena last
Saturday shows more than anything
else how the game is progressing in
the west. Andy Smith had a versatile
machine, good on the attack and de
fense, played modern football and
scored an overwhelming victory.
"Once upon a time everybody
looked to the east for good football.
The west never was considered. How
ever, slowly but surely the game ad
vanced out there and now a repre
sentative eleven can put up a stiff
argument against any eleven in this
"The game is becoming standard
ized. The rules have not been changed
far some time and every team in the
country has an even chance to turn
out a winner. Forward passing, line
bucking, end runs, punting and drop
kicking are the only five offensive
plays, and defensive work Is improv
ing each year.
"California's victory was no fluke.
It was a clean-cut triumph and proved
that football is a typical American
game and not one which is bounded
by the Atlantic ocean and the Alle-ghanles."

Alex Trambitas will uphold the

event of the January 21 card at the

maker Evans clinched the setto yes
terday when he brought the two
boxers together on the weight ques
tion. Eagan got a draw with Jimmy
Darcy, the middleweight member of,
the Trambitas family, at the armory
several weeks ago. The fans booed
the verdict to the echo, figuring that
Joe had made a sucker out of Jimmy
in the ten rounds of battling.
Alex weighs about 118 pounds as he
stands, and is liable to weigh that
much the nisrht of the fight, although
it is said that he can do 140 pounds if
necessary. At any rate, under ordi
nary conditions Alex is a heavy wel
terweight. Eagan is a light middle
weight, which makes the match pos
sible and one of the most attractive
both from a box office standpoint and
a fighting standpoint that has ever

Exiled From Organized Baseball
by National Association.
CHICAGO. Jan. 12. With the
league and Inter-league disagree
ments settled at today's baseball
meetings, the club owners. Judge Lan
dis, baseball commissioner, and the
state attorney's office tonight began
making plans, which it was expected
would result in an early trial of the
men indicted for the alleged throwing
of games in the 1919 world series.
George Gorman, assistant state's
attorney, announced that the indicted
men would be arraigned about Feb
ruary 1 and that an immediate trial
would be held. The American league
appropriated $10,000 to be used In the
prosecution. The minor leagues voted
to lake action against players whe
have taken part in games on the Pa
cific coast with Fred McMullln. an In
dicted Chicago White Sox player, and
suspended coast player recently in
dicted. Judge Landis said that If the men
are "found not guilty by a jury or by
a Judge they will not necessarily be
allowed to return to organized base
ball. They must first satisfy me, af
commissioner, and I do not hesitate
to say that a decision similar to that
on the coast where a judge ruled that
throwing games was not a criminal
offense, will not satisfy me."
It developed that Judge Landis al
ready has held several informal con
ferences with members of the state
attorney's staff over the trial, and
that he has studied the records of the
trial of the Pacific coast players.
"Whether the accused men are found
guilty or innocent, the trial will re
sult in the stamping out of gam
bling," he said. "For suitable action
will be taken against any men who
have not acted justly in fulfilling
their contracts.
Players Rumer, Borton, Maggert
and Dale, involved in alleged base
ball crookedness in the Pacific Coast
league, today were expelled from or
ganized baseball by the National As
sociation of Minor Leagues.
The national association also de
cided to punish the players who have
been playing with Fred McMUUin, an
indicted member of the Chicago White
Sox on a semi-professional club in
California. Six or seven players who
are members of teams in organized
baseball have been playing on the
same team with McMullln.
The national association adopted
resolutions calling upon the players,
"to show cause why they should nor
be cited" for their actions.

Football Knowledge of Buckeye
Lads Held Inferior to That of
Teams of Coast.
gene. Jan. 12. (Special.) The Ohio
State football team which played the
University of California at Tasadena
January 1, didn't have a chance, ac
cording: to "Shy" Huntington, the
memor of Oregon's football team.
Huntington recently returned from
the south after witnessing the annual
tntt-rsectioaal clash between the mid
dle west and the coast. The eastern
team failed to show anything like
the amount of football knowledge
that the coast boys exhibited, said
Much credit Is due to the California
men for thus way in which they
played, he declared. Many who wit
nessed the game believe that nearly
any of the coast teams could have
defeated the Ohio men.
The Ohio men had been coached to
play against the style of line bucks
which California had been using with
so much success against the other
coast teams Ihis year, and lined up
accordingly. Andy Smith, coach of
the Bear state team, then played the
style of open play and took the east
erners off their feet.
"Brick Muller of California was the
.star of the game," said Huntington.
''Muller is an end who will need
watching by all of the coaches on the
coast next season. He has two more
years ahead of him on the football
team. The renowned Stlnchcomb, on
whom the Buckeye men were back
ing so heavily, was smothered by the
play of the Bears and did not get
away. However, both teams played
good ball."

Harvard Team Said to Have Been
Directed From Grandstand.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 12. Har
vard's football strategy in important
games for several years has been de
veloped in part over telephone wires
while the games were in progress, it
was learned today. In the games with
Yale and Princeton for the last two
years, the game with Centre college
last fall and in the intersectional
game with University of Oregon at
Pasadena a year ago. Crimson coaches
perched on the top of the stands, tele
phoned criticisms and suggestions to
supplement the side line observations
of Head Coach Fisher.
In the game at Pasadena the Crim
son's coach wire was set up by line
men of the telephone company at
that place, and reports have come
ast that the University or California
Basketball Squad to Play Winged

on January 15.
LEGE. Corvallis, Jan. 12. (Special.)
The Oregon Aggies are expecting a
hard battle when they clash with the
Multnomah club basketball team at
Portland on January 15. After the
defeat handed out to the University
of Oregon team by the club aggrega
tion it 'would look as if the Beavers
will have a hard time to defeat the
Winged "Hi" team.
Captain Ernie Arthur and Richard
Stinson will no doubt hold down the
forward positions. Both men were
members of last year's college team,
and are showing the same class of
speed that they exhibited last year.
Stinson will be remembered in Port
land as ex-member of tha. Multno
mah club basketball team.
Coach Rutherford and Assistant
Coach Rathbun are having consider
able trouble in finding a center.
"Babe" McCart and "Sandy" Saunders
seem to be the best candidates for the
center berth up to date. McCart
played guard on last year's team, and
Saunders played center for the fresh
meh squad.
Harold McKenna, who was "Gap"
Powell's understudy in the fullback
position this year. Is proving to be
one of the dark horses on the basket
ball squad. Other new men who are
showing up exceptionally well are
"Spec" Keene, "Tuffy" Ross, Carr,
Beck and Luckey Bonney.
Clyde Hubbard, "Al" Clough, and
Joe Kasberger, last year s men are
showing their regular form, and will
give strong competition to many of
the new men. The Beavers will leave
Corvallis Friday for Salem where they
are slated to play Willamette univer
sity the night before the O. A. C
Muitnomah game.
CHICAGO. Jan. 12. President
Frank Navin of the Detroit American
league club, tonight announced the
purchase of Pitcher Sutherland from
the Portland club.
Portland will get three players for
Sutherland, Judge McCredle an
nounced last night, on news that De
troit had accepted his terms for the
Beavers' star pitcher. The agree
ment provides that these players must
all be satisfactory to Portland, or In
other words that they must make
good, and furthermore stipulates that
in the event Sutherland should not
make good with Detroit, he is to re
vert to Portland.
Sutherland was the Beavers' lead
ing pitcher and one of the steadiest
hurlers la the Pacific Coast league.
He is a player who uses his head
fully as much as his arm. Coupled
with almost perfect control, this com
bination makes him hard to beat. He
also is a nervy lad and a particularly
gooa nitter m the pinches.
Player Not Scnsatlunnl.
However, he Is never a sensational
or grandstand performer. Scouts over
looked him in consequence. Until Ty
Cobb, now manager for Detroit, came
to California last fall to play a series
of exhibition games there he hud
never even heard of Sutherland. Ho
talked with coast ballplayers about
various men in the league, and sev
eral of them told him that the major
leagues were passing up the best
pitching prospect of them all in Suth
erland. Cobb immediately asked
Navin to negotiate for the Portland
heaver. Terms were discussed when
Walter McCredle attended the minor
league conclaye at Kansas City in
November, but only now has Detroit
accepted the Portland requirements.
Walt says he hasn't a doubt that
Sutherland will make good in the ma
jors, and more than once has declared
that he considers Sutherland the best
pitcher in the Coast league last year.
The Boston Nationals and one of
the St. Louis clubs had also been
angling ior Sutherland recently, fol
lowing publication of Ty Cobb's re
marks on what he had heard of his
steady playing.
Beaver I'roprc Fair.
The three players to be received
for Sutherland, two due from the
Chicago Cubs for Fritz Malsel, all
five of whom must make good in
the Coast league, with a further cash
consideration for Maisel to enable
Portland to get a couple of other
players, gives the Beavers a pretty
lair prospective combination. They al
ready have Poole, a .300 hitter from
the Virginia league, coming to play
first base and the second base prob
lem solved with the acquisition of
Marty Krug from Salt Lake In ex
change for Paddy Siglin.
Besides this a player and cash are
due from Seattle for Tex Wisterzil.
Out of ail these players, it looks as
if enough good ones should be ob
tained to make up a better team
than has represented Portland in
many a season.
