WASHINGTON, Dec. , Branding
James B. and John J. McNamara as
'recreant to the good name and high
Ideal of labor," and expressing the
satisfaction of organised ' labor that the
'culprits have been commensuretely
punished for their crimes," the Mc
Namara ways and means committee of
he American Federation of Iobor, after
two days' conference here, late today
issued a statement vigorously condemn-
ng the McNamara for their "Inhu
manity" and declaring that organised
labor should not be held "either legally
or morally responsible for the crimes
of an Individual member."
The labor leadera assert that they will
'welcome any Investigation which either
federal or at ate court may undertake."

ber of the McNamara committee except

Goinper positively, "I am sure Mr. Ryan
would bava added his name. He was
called back to Indianapolis by pressure
of business. He did not see the state

cord with It sentiments."
Aa to their knowledge of the crime to

commlttco In Its statement asserts:

"From the outset we assured nil con

moneys received, from whom received

of the American Federation of Labor at
Ita meeting to be held at Washington,
January s. 1D1Z"
Further than this Mr. Oompers would
say nothing In regard to the defense fund

"And yet It I an awful-commentary

the only mean to accura Justice for labor
la In. violence, .outrage and murder.
'It la cruelly unjust to hold the men
of tha labor movement either legally or
morally reaponalbla for the crime of an
Individual member.' No such moral code
or legal responsibility la placed upon any
other association of men In our country,

"Insofar aa we have the right to speak,

(firm, "aro grieved beyond expression

He has managed clubs In Oklahoma
City of the Texas league and Hutchinson
and Topeka in tho old western associa
tion. Several years ago he played In St.
Joseph and Sioux City of this league.
It is probable that more stories have
been printed regarding the saylnga and
doings of Andrewa on the ball field than
of any other minor league ball player.
The announcement regarding Andrews
follows closely the purchase of Infielder
