THE BEE: OMAHA. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, ' 1920.
Today to Decide
Ban Johnson's "Loyal Fiv&"
' , To Take tip Proposal Made
By Eight National Clubs
; ' Regarding New Plan.
'Chicago, Oct. 28. President
Byron Bancroft Johnson . of the
American league and Hie five club
n owners which, have sided with him
in all league fights, will hold a con
ference here tomorrow, which may
'. decide whether there will be a base
ball war over the proposed reorftan-
izatiton of jthe national game.
Officialb the conference is a
meeting of the league's board of
direciurs. but unofficially the clubs
which Johnson terms the "loyal five."
m Win uc ivavm, n"Mvti. "
have oonosed the junior circuit
president in his administration of
league altairs have, not Deen in
volved. , Two Courses to Take.
Meeting with Johnson will be rep
. resentaltives of the Philadelphia,
Washington, (,'leveland, Detroit and
St. Jouis (clubs. They will take up
the proposal made by the eight Na
. tionat league clubs and the Chicago,
Ne. York and Boston American
League clubs that the national com
, mission be abolished and control of
base ball placed in the hands of a
"civilian tribunal" of three men
financially disinterested in the game.
Kase ball men.point out thatjthere
- are two coTirses which the magnates
might take tomorrow. One is to'
agree to meet with- the'othei' eleven
major league clubs at the session
called for November 8, to act on the
proposed reorganization or to refuse
to take part in the proposals for a
change in base tall management.
This latter action, it"- is believed
would result Snn base balkwar.
Refuses to "Make Statement,
) i While President Johnson tonig.ht
would make no statement his friends
expressed the opinion that the club
owners would agree to talte part
in the November 8 conference. If
this is done, it is believed Johnson
and his followers "will present a
.'- counter proposition for reorganiza
j tiotf which will- contain the prin
ciples of the Lasker ".plan, favored
by the other eleven magnates, but
iviih spveral chaneres in the admin
istration of the pfan. Such actionW
it is believed, would avert a base
ball war, unless it was found im
possible to reach an agreement ( at
the final conference in November.
Refusal to enter Into negotiation for
change In the- control of the game,
however, proliabiy would bring about a
ciRHh, It If believed? for the 11 magnates
who already have gone on record as fa
voring the "Lasker" plan for a "civilian
r tribunal" as the controlling body, have
Issued an ultimatum that unless the other
club Join them they will .form
' club league without the five American
league clubs which back Johnson.
ay Cause Court Action. v
Such actloa,v It la believed, might re
sult In court action. Friend, of Presl
, o dent Johnson point out that the ""jO-year
' contract" signed by the American Lleague
' clubs In lt0, and effective until 1930,
provided the clubs must all stick together
and for any club to Join a new league
would be In - violation of . this contract,
'""" It la also pointed out that a club can
le expelled from the league by a three
' fourths vote. President Johnson holds
that thla rule means three-fourths of those
present at a meeting and that conse
quently he amt his five" clubs would expel
the other clubs at the meeting tomorrow
If they so desired. I
The sentiment tonlrht, however, seemed
! "to be that all would be peaceful tomor-
i row. '"""' 1 . i
I ISont. ef the magnates who have not
" - lolnd in the proposed plan for reorgan
ization has expressed themselves for It.
Several of them have favored reorganUa
lion of aonw kind when taken, up at a
"regu'erly called meeting of the league In
accerdan.'e with the league's constitution,
i maintaining that the previous conference
s was not of that nature.
' No Aetlon Vnttl Jury Finishes.
nr.airtanf Jnr.nsnn and Alfred Austrian,
attorney for the Chicago American league
club, which has opposed Johnson In afl
nilnlstrntton of the league's affairs, met
accidentally a rw days ago m ine rnum
bers of Judge Charles A. McDonald, in
charge of the base ball grand Jury, and
It Is said that they discussed be ball
reorganisation- at length. While neither
would comment nfflcclally on the meet
ing, it was said that they had not found
their views fundamentally different.
. Another possibility la that the clubs
meeting tomorrow will request that no
v -sT action he taken by either league until
the Cook county grand- Jury.- which has
Just completed a five weeks' Investlga
' lion of the base ball gambling, makes its
report. The .1ury has vote true bills
' I against IS men and now Is preparing to
J ' J have them brought here for trial. It will
. hold its f lha-1 session tomorrow, but It Is
-believed that the report will not be ready
before next week.
This report Is expected to make recom
mendations concerning future administra
tion of professional base ball league's af
Expect "Sensational Evidence."
. t President Johnson, when he Refused to
i enter Into the conference of eight i No-,
" tlonal and three American league clubs, '
" , -' said he thought It not advisable to take
action then because of "sensational evi
dence" he expected the jury to receive
later. 'The Jury now has finished its
active -session, but It was thought thai
the Aaierlcan league president might still
think it Advisable to postpone action un
til the report Is made. Such a decision,
would not. It la believed, prevent the clubs
from deciding tomorrow to meet with the
other clubs on November 8.- '

law was' loss of distance only for
a ball, ryit of bounds and the loss of

"When both balls are on the put

farthest from the hole claims that
the nearer ball interferes with his'

.shall be lifted or played at the op
