Magnates On Way to New
Orleans Will Demand
Better Treatment
By H. O. Hamilton
(United Press staff correspondent)
New York, Nov. 7. Bent on doing
'several things to the national agree-
uient, primed with suggestions of many
I forts, broken in pockctbook, but not
j in spirit, the minor league baseball
j magnates of the country begin today
i to step into the limelight. They are on
their way to New Orleans, where a
I week from todav they will open their
annual meeting.
! The minor leagues have been in a bad
way for a long time and many a bush
I town mogul has been spending his
nights without sleep trying to figure
out a plan whereby baseball cau be
made to pay in the smaller cities of
the country. Nearly every one of them
has plnnucd some sort of a suggestion
and the air at New Orleans is going
to be full of them.
Ko-distriHitig plans are part of the
rumors flying around regarding possi
ble re organization of the small cir
cuits. These reorganizations as planned
call for splits in present circuits that
are almost unbelievable. Drastic meas
ures will l)e suggested and there are
some magnates who believe at least a
part of them will be adopted.
The minors feel they have not been
getting the right sort of treatment and
they wnnt some changes in the national
agreement. Alson Dave Fultz has a
hone to pick with the magnates, and
some new demands already arc in os
session of the national board for sub
mission at the Aew Orleans meeting.

representation on the uatiousl commis

will get lots of attention.

An Eveless Eden.
(From the National geographic
Athos, a (ireek peninsula jutting out
into the Aegeau sea, is a stronghold
secure against femiuiuists, suffragists,
suffragettes and ladies militant. To
put it more plainly, an ancient law for
bids any female creature to set foot on
the soil of the sacred mount. As one
might suspect, of course, in a world
inhabited by descendants of Kve, that
Inw has been broken. There are leg
ends of inquisitive empresses who were
miraculously prevented at the door
from defiling certain monasteries by
their intrusions. There are other leg
ends of monasteries subjected to fast
ing, humility and purification by reason
of some such uninvited guest.
Kveu the furred and feathered colon
ists of Mount Athos are supposed to
leave their harems at home. Neither
cow nor hen wakens the echoes of the
monastic community, and the monks'
kitchens are supplied with milk, butter
and eggs from thoir distant farms on
the mainland. The dispiriting effects
of celibacy are nowhere so visible as
among the army of tomcats that haunt
the cloisters.
After extensive experiments British
manufacturers have found that paper
can be economically mndo from a grass
that grows freely in Biirmn.

New York, Nov. 7. The flood of bal

Since the campaign opened about Aug-

overlapping at times. Today both sides
were claiming the benefit of such a cur

But if the odds here were slightly in
favor of Hughes, messages from certain
mid-west cities indicated a complete
