resolutions today, one calling upon the
six states containing cities on the circuit

following: That major league clubs not

after the playing season; reduction of the
drafting , season to five days, beginning
September 'IS; drafting of umpires; an
amendment requiring the major leagues
to Increase tht salaries of drafted players
