Minors Hold
Upper Hand
In Ball War
By J. F. Seaman - v,
United Press Staff Correspondent
TZ'ANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 10. (U. P.)
Minor league officials were to de
cide today whether to undertake the job
of possible peacemakers for warring
major baseball factions. '
John A. Heydler, president of the new
National league, arrived j here un
expectedly today to actively enter the
fight for minor league approval of the
Lasker plan. Heydler said he would
make any reasonable effort again to
bring about peace in baseball, but that
as a representative of the "greatest
organization ever ' engaged in baseball,"
he would protect the interests of his
club owners.
He said he would not appear before
the minor league meeting today but will,
however, direct presentation of the new
National case to minor magnates.
The National Association ! of Profes
sional Baseball Clubs in annual conven
tion here was nominated for the task
of attempting to end a threatened base
bail war on the eve of Armistice day
by representatives of Ban Johnson and
his loyal five American league club
owners. Their selection, however, de
pends on the proposal to be submitted
today by representatives of the 12-club
George W. Miller, attorney for the
American league, accepting an Invita
tion to present Johnson's views of base-'
ball reorganization before ; the minor
league meeting, asked that a committee
be appointed to meet committees from
major leagues, in an effort to make
"You may be the peacemakers, the
voice that will restore sanity in heads of
baseball officials,", Miller said. "We
still want peace and not war and we
hope there will be no battle."
Miller's Bentiment against another war
in baseball was echoed by American
and National leagues alike. ;
The minors were to hearfthe National
league phase of the squabble today.
The National leaguers also will plead
for baseball peace, Garry Herrmann
said. They will ask the National asso
ciation, however, to join with them if
conciliation of ideas of the major groups
finally proves impossible. He was ex
pected to offer the inducement of the
choice of one of the three members of
the civilian tribunal for control of base
ball affairs.'
Minor leaguers agreed to receive Rep
resentatives of the big leagues after? an
unsuccessful attempt to vote against
siding with ;either group.
The stand was taken, however, that
the fight would not be permitted to
smirch thei harmony of the smaller
leagues and unless the majors' differ
ences are settled, the minors probably
will not affiliate with either faction.
The Dalles, Or., high school football
team will play the crack Everett, Wash.,
high school aggregation at Everett
Thursday afternoon. Not a single touch
down has been registered against the
Everett high team this season.

mation and ran 50 yards around end for
a touchdown, but he was so winded, he
couldn't kick the goal.

Courtney of Benson when he Intercepted
a forward pass and ran 50 yards. He
was downed on the 20 yard line and
again on the 10 yard mark, but each time

Over Darcy
iT"ID" PALMER, the Italian middle--"V;
weight who shaded Jimmy Darcy
a week ago at Mtlwaukie, has been In
stalled favorite over the Portland bat
tler In their return engagement at the
Heilig theatre tonight.
There will be little difference in the
weights of the two ringmen tonight.
Just before they step Jnto the ring they
will be weighed. Darcy tipped the beam
at 59V4 pounds after his workout Mon
day, which brings out the fact that he
will weigh around that figure tonight.
The bout promises to be just as sensa
tional; as was the one at MUwaukie.
Both boj;s are on edge for the contest.
Palmer finished his training Tuesday
afternoon with a light workout at the
Olympic gymnasium. He sparred a
couple of rounds with Miller, an eastern
Johnny Fisk, who has made a big im
pression with the Portland fans by his
aggressiveness, is said to be in better
condition than at any time since he came
to Portland. Flsk tackles Jack Davis,
the Oakland, battler, in the eight-round
semi-windup tonight and is anxious to
win the verdict so that he can demand
a match with Joe Gorman.

Six rounds Al Grunan, Los Angeles,
vs. Willie St Clair.
Six rounds George Eagles vs. Muff
Four rounds Roy Sutherland vs.

Players "Pull Hard"
For Baseball Wat
Los Angeles, Nov. 10. With visions pf
ironclad contracts calling for tens of
thousands of dollars a season before
them, major league ball players winter
ing in Los Angeles are "pulling hard"
for open warfare between the opposing
major league factions. In the event of
a battle for players, it is believed the
big leaguers will not respect the reserve
"Bobby" Meusel, the J25.000 player of
the New York Americans, says he will
sign with the club giving him the most
money. He has one offer from the
Franklin club In the Oil league for
S9000 a season.
"Speck" Meadows, star pitcher for the
Philadelphia league club, says his con
tract expired last season. Unless he
gets his price from the Phillies he will
consider the terms of other clubs.
