the world's series In cae players per
mitted the misuse of their names,
"The purpose of the commission Is
not to prevent players' earning extra
money In any legitimate way,' said
iPrcsldent Johnson, "but to stop the fak
ing, which Is bound to do base ball a
rertous Injury unless It Is curbed. In
the public's mind the great pitcher who
will accept money for the use of his
name In connection with stories he does
not write -would be just as likely to ac
cept money to throw a taae .ball game.
The man who will conspire to cheat the
public In any way cannot be trusted to
keep faith with others.
"If any player wants to write bona

"If the paper publlthes the story as
the player prepares It there-will be no
objection. This, I fhlnk, Is- a fair chal
