He said o Malley also wanted the land improved by moving cubic Yards of Earth to level the property. It s a problem of providing him with x acres of land with x improvements at an undetermined Mcclellan told the committee. It will be at a Price certainly not less than what it costs los an Mcclellan stressed that o Malley and the City must reach an agreement before the end of the month on whether the end of september another the dodgers will move Here or Page 17 thursday sept. 5, 1957, Bob Shofer editor it will be too late.

By 1958. A High percent went Alons with the theme. Glorifying Omalley and reporting that the bums were in the bag for . They May yet come. But from All obvious signs they have been far from in the no Earth has yet been turned in Chavez Ravine where an Ultra modern stadium is envisioned. If the dodgers come by 1958, they undoubtedly will be stationed within the limited confines of their farm property f Wrigley a Jirld. Webb wants . San Francisco meanwhile has stolen the Thunder from . On All counts. A straight Forward headed by that City s mayor George Christopher already has landed the new York giants for next season. Work on a new Bay area stadium already is being done. The pangs of anxiety under which the los Angeles move men is Labouring were expressed tuesday by mayor Morris Poulson. Through the medium of newsmen he cautioned o Malley that the better jump within the next four else All things considered the dodgers appear to be far her away now than hey were to months ago.

If major league baseball comes wants to bring it in giants Don t need dodgers if the dodger Deal Falls through it appears that the Washington senators will make the most concerted Effort to relocate in los Angeles. Club president Calvin Griffith advanced the idea last year but it was voted Down by the other member directors. After another bad year some of the stockholders May now have changed their minds. The argument has been advanced in some quarters that the giants decision has ruled out the possibility of an amen can league team coming into .

This was borne out in a sporting news Survey last week. It showed that the dodgers must travel Miles next season whether they stay in Brooklyn or move to . Wanted big operators thus it definitely is possible that an american league club will Zero in on the lucrative . Territory. Poulson How Ever indicates it will not Ever be Washington.

There was a Chance that Junior circuit outfit May exploit this Virgin area the Man said. But from All the mayor mras said to me i am certain it is not he remarked.
