Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 23, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 19M wjpi Court's Awaid in Killifer Case Opens Door for Anarchy lo Step in (By Htgli Fullerton) Judge en the tal- Iflliy of the reserve clause In tuse- ball contracts, means the freeing of V-layers. allowing iheiu to sijn they please. It mar'ns iho piayer at free ngent, free to do ivith j he chooses, U will break up the baseball trust! H -will boost flayers' salaries sky high! 11 ill make the baseball .war or.e ol extermination! It will upset the entire fabric oE or- gaauFd baseball! rt will change the dope oa nearly every team in Uie three bis leagues. It will throw the 'jlimping seasss iviJe open! It Spells Anarchy in Basiball Sessioas has held that the contracts by which ibe bafel-all trust liail teea held together for the last are, trorth'es? because they lack in mutuality and are ia- Biit In Killifer to the rMlaaelpbia he decides that tbe Federal agents had no richt to the catcher to jarap his rc- perve contract In. simple words, it sepias to mean tliat .if a player is can- r.ot be htlu, but that the third party lias no right, for selfish motives, to interfere and persuade an employes lo leave an employer. Therefore, if the rrtayer is not sat- isfied, and is heM only by "an inequit- able contract, he is at liberty to seek employment elsewhere. KiHIfer, haviQjj beea satisfied, and not himself, chanced the aspect cf the suit. Organized baseball has fcno'.vn for many years that their contracts wcrold not hold in court. Since the formation of.the Federal league they have tried to amend their form.of con> tract so to bring it within the law. But the Play ere" Fraier nity sent out word 'advlalns- their Tnembers pot to sign any new eon- tracts until the'courts had decided the legality of the reserve clause and: the t en-da v-notice Tbe result of Judge deci- sion means that war is oa in earnest anci Uiat the ,Federal leagus 'must fight for Its. life. The only beneficiaries by the de- piston are the, .tbetnselvea. Those who aferworking under hold- over contracts, those who have sign- ed the old form contracts anil refuse to sign the new, seem at liberty to jump where they please. Tbe Federal league has hai appli- cations from at least one hnndrfd ma- jor league players who want to Join them. They were advised by their lawyers r.ot .to. touch players, under contract nBltt after the Kflllfer De- cision, and to submit the contracts of all players to tbe janyers before sign-" Ing them. The decision !s a terrific blow "to Ihe minor leagueE. Under the deci- sion It is evident that major league duos cannot maintain their claims to players who "are turned back to minor league tbe player has, for a consideration, specifically agreed to have his contract other parties. Therefore, every yoang player the major league ciuWatterar-ts to" turn tack to the minors to lump (o'tho Fees if he is" wanted. The decision destroys all the dope.
