American and National leagues go

the American league facing a bit

"Drastic measures must, and

league to regain that prestige."
Such are the statements of a
man high in baseball circles.
"While the American league,"
he eaid, "has fought internal
strife, suffered the long standing
jw between Ban Johnson and
tuommissioner K. M Landis. and
"t6en watched its playing seasons,
marred by runaway races, the Na

its younger rival through the me

evelopment of stars, and a unl
