Borne criticism has been manifest In
regard to President Whltemore's action
In voting down the Frakes protest of
the Kelso-Frakss game played July 31.
Mr. Whltmore acted fairly within the
lines of his position and in accordance
with the Inerpretatlon of section 21 of
the bylaws, which sets no specified time
for approval of players' contracts. The
league officials established a bad prece
dent when they voted down Kelso's pro
test some months ago, the protest being
based on a fls grant violation of rule
II. The defendant mansger pleaded
extenuating circumstances and the
.league of flolala supported him. "The
Kelso manager In this Instance pleaded
extenuating clrcumstaneee, and, in ac
cordance with precedent established,
should have won out without the presi
