Ousting of Zimmerman, Chase,
Magee for Alleged Gambling
Believed by League Head to
Have Ended .Questionable Play.
Chicago, Sept. 27. (U. P.)
Crookedness in National league base
ball games has been eliminated. In
the opinion of John Heydler, presi
dent, here to testify before the
grand Jury investigating gambling on
"Heine Zimmerman, Hal Chase and
Lee Magee were thrown out of the Na
tional league because of gambling,'
Although it had been generally known
that Zimmerman. Chase and Magee
were banished because of alleged crook
edness, - this was the first official an
nouncement of the fact.
"This cleansed the game In the Na
tional league and as far as I know the
only scandal in the American league is
connected with the 1919 world series,"
Heydler - said.
OTHERS WERE SCARED
"The action taken In the Zimmerman
case Beared the others who might other
wise have been inclined to play crooked
baseball and they are not willing to take
any chances now
Heydler said the New York Giants
club deserved a great deal of credit for
the swift and decisive action taken in
the cases of Chase and Zimmerman.
Heydier said he had the affidavits of
Ru.be Benton and Charles Herxog re
garding alleged gambling.
"It merely comes down to a question
of one man's word against another's,"
Heydler said. "However, published re
ports of Benton's statements differ from
the affidavit which he made."
Declaring the investigation was de
veloping a lot of silly angles Which be
cloud the main Issue," Heydler urged the
grand Jury to stick to the main Issue-

Schalk has never denied fighting with
two members of the White Sox clique
which lslleged to have sold out to the
gamblers during the 1919 world series.
Reports circulated after the series were

The new wholesale price on cane

Circuit Judge McCourt this morn
ing denied the application for a tem
porary Injunction and vacated, ths
restraining order that was Issued
several weeks ago In the action of
the Oregon Dairymen's Cooperative
league against the Portland milk
distributors. The league sought an
Injunction restraining ths distrib
utors from interfering with the con
tract arrangements between the "
eague and Its members or trying to
induce members to violate such con
tracts. In his opinion, the Judge pointed out
that the plaintiff charged that it was
threatened with Irreparable damage by
the action of the defendanta. The milk
distributors contended that the market-
ng agreements between the league and
its members unreasonably restrain trade
and are, therefore, contrary to public
policy and void. ,

violated as a result of the defendants'
efforts, but on the contrary, league
members on the whole have become
stronger In their attachment to the -or

the validity of plaintiffs marketing
agreements. The purpose of ths court
in this opinion is to declare the rules
of law applicable to such agreements
