Western League President Refuses to Acknowledge Base
Ball Body's Right to Rule Major League ;
Can Delay Payment for
Drafted Athlete.
Marty Krug, veteran Rourke, may be the central figure
in a test case to determine the legality of the national com
mission's ruling that a major league club does not have to
pay the draft price for a player drafted from a minor league
club until assured the player in question will not be called
for army service.
The national commission, base ball's supreme court,
recently made this ruling in order "to protect the major
league clubs," it was explained.
Now comes Emerson Dickerson.Q1
president of the Western league,
with an emphatic declaration that the
Western league will not abide by this
ruling. t
. "A major leagde' club Grafting a
player from the Western league must
put up the money before that player
will be delivered," said Dickerson.
"According to all the rules of base
ball the money must be forthcoming.
The draft would be manifestly unfair
to the minor league club owner if
such were not the case. No player
shall be delivered on the draft by this
league unless the money is in hand in
advance."
. Marty Krug was "'drafted from
Omaha by Cleveland. One other
Western league player, Schmandt of
Lincoln, was drafted.
When the time comes for Cleveland
to pay the $1,500 coming to Rourke
in payment for Krug, the Indians may
demur. So a test case may be made
of the former Rourke manager to de
termine whether the national com
mission has the right to make the rul
ing it did. Dickerson says he intends
to fight, and. it is probable the na
tional commission will fight back.
Regular Umps Returns;
Sub Now Wants Job, Too
Billy Phyle has returned to work as
an umpire in the Coast league after a
lay-off because of illness, during
which Harry Meek substituted for
him. Meek liked the work so well
that he has asked President Baum for
a regular job.
Burlingim.Pkks Sox
To Capture Big Clash
Fred Burlingim, world's greatest
picker, has officially predicted vic
tory for the Chicago White Sox
over the New York Giants in the
forthcoming world's series. ,
Burlingim has been picking
world's serin winners ever since
Hek was a pup. He has never
missed one yet.
The only time Burley's guess was
bad was in 1914 when the. Athletics
and Braves battled and then it was
only bad for a few minutes. Burley
predicted a win for the Athletics,
but after the first game, changed
his mind, climbed on the Brave
band wagon and came home a win
ner again.
Burley is now in New York,
where he has been lamping the
Giants in action and he says it's a
cinch for the pale hose crew.
Former Carlisle Star
Made Coach at Haskell
Antonio Lubo, former Carlisle and
Syracuse University foot ball star, will
coach the Haskell Indians this season.
Lubo was placed upon the second
Ail-American eleven in 1906 in
the line. Gus Welsh, another Carlisle
foot ball man, who was originally
slated for the Haskell position, is in
the officers' training camp. Lubo is a
member of the Mission tribe of California.

caliber and next year this team goes
into Class A circles.

serve. Chamberlain will toss for the
Brandeis. In the second game, the

slabster, will do the hurling for the
semi-pros. , .

Jennings Fears "Covey"
Is Through in Big Show
It is an open secret that Manager
Jennings of the Detroit Americans
doubts whether Harry Coveleskie will
be able to pitch major league ball next
season. Last year the big lefthander
was a star: this year he was almost
worthless. His arm was weak and his
curbe vail and confidence were con
spicuous by their absence.
. Covaleskie passed. the 30-year mark
several seasons ago, although he
is modest regarding his real age.
But Jennings undoubtedly will take
Covie south and give him another
chance, as he realizes that a come
back is not an impossibility.
