TOPEKA FINDS AN ANGEL
Refuse to Disclose Hit Identity, but
He Ii Said to Be Willing
MAY OR MAY NOT MOVE TEAM
The Western league has uncovered a
mysterious angel wlioso Identity the
magnates refute to dlsclonc to take a
flyer on the Topeka franchise, thus com
ing to the rescue and saving this loop
from titter destruction, aa the Topeka
bugs think. The angel Is said to tie a
man well versed In aMl things bane balllc
and with sufficient financial backing to
hold the franchise In Topoka or move It
to Hong Kong. .
The angel la still undetermined what
he will do with the Kaw franchise after
he gets It, according to Archie Catlin,
president of the club. If Topeka puts'
forth an effoft, assuring him proper sup
port In the Jayhawk city, lie la expected
to buy the team, and remain In Topeka.
Otherwise he will put the team In his
traveling bag and depart for more fruit
Catlin further remarked that a number
of Topeka business men, so unsophisti
cated aa to bo Ignorant of the fact that
a minor league club Is a scary proposi
tion, are ready to raise enough money to
take the club off the hands of the Oer-
man-Amerran bank, which recently fore
closed a mortgage on it.
Meanwhile Joplln and Oklahoma City
are making frantic efforts to convince
the Western league that they belong In
our little circle. However, Messrs. Rourke
of Omaha and Holland of St. Joseph have
dampened their ardor considerably by
declaring "nothing stirring."
