Under; strong pressure , exerted by
a majority of the club owners and
chiefly because of 111 health, Ban
Johnson, today resigned from the
presidency of the American league.
He will quit the office he has held
since the founding of the circuit
twenty-seven . years .ago, not later
than November 1. and probably
much sooner, -,
Simultaneous with his abrupt
resignation, "which the. club own
ers. accepted 'with regret," the 61-year-old
executive, in a character
istic gesture, , refused a proposal
that he become "president emeri
tus," and retire on full pay under
a contract which ; still has eight
years to run at an annual figure
of $40,000. , .
Ja rejecting an arrangement
which would hare meant $320,
00(j for the life of the contract,
the veteran stipulated in 'his 33
word statement' of resignation
that. his compensation will "end
upon "my retirement."'
Who his successor will be th
club owners did "not decide today
at their, suddenly caNed special
meeting here. It was believed the
magnates were prepared to name
one oflheir own members E.""S.
'Barnard, president of the Cleve-
land club, but decision on his
choice, if it has. been made, was
withheidTn view! of the indefinite
tenure 'of Johnson's reign.
Edward O. Barrow, secretary of
the New Yori Yankees and form
er irviueui oi iiiB international
league, .also . has been mentioned
as a possible successor In spite jot
his own denials. Likewise, there
has' been something of a boom for
Mayor , Jimmy , Walker of New
York, bt Col., Jacob Ruppert,
Yankee owner declared today he
"didn't think Walker would con
eider, the Job," even if it was of
fered him. !
While1 continued ill health, mak
ing Johnson's attention to the
president's : duties uncertain, was
explained by club owners as the
principal reason for. their action,
it: was understood they were con
cerned chiefly with ending a pro
tracted period marked , by . sharp
differences between the .American
league head and Commissioner K.
M. Landis, the last of these con
troversies, growfrfg' ont of the
