Shibe Denies Any
Scandal in World's
Series Ticket Sale
PHILADELPHIA, Dec H.-A denial
that any scandal attached to the selling
of world's series tickets here was made
today by John D. Shibe, secretary of
the Philadelphia American club. It was
made In answer to a statement given out
by the New York National club.
"There Is no truth in the assertion that
wo handed out tickets to friends, or that
5,000 tickets were given to seventy-three
persons," nul.l Mr. Slilbe.
"On November It we received a letter
from the National commission requesting
that we send a list of all the persons
who received tickets. We complied with
the request and, furthermore, Joseph B.
Ohl was sent to New York with addi
tional Information to give the commis
sion. This they declined to take.
"We are rer.dy to produce at any time
copies of the list of those receiving
tickets from us. They were regular sup
porters of the club."
