One plan erild to bo favored by John- son, would allow only the teams 'fin- ishing In tho first division, to share In (he receipts, (he amount to be filed by the position in which they finished. Tho olher, Eald to have been suggest- ed by Herrmann, would divide Ibe players' share of the monev among the first seven teams, fearing only the lail endcra without a portion of the big stake. Whether either of the proposed plans will bo approved or whether the old system of permitting only two teams engaging In tho series to have a sharo will remain In force, must be determined by further conferences, it was said. The idea of 'leltlng oilers than the champions of their respective leagues participate In money derived frdm the annual event Is brought forth, It was paid, for the purpose, of stimulating ball players to glvo their best efforls to the end of the season, overi'though (heir club may have no chance for a pennant.
