John Kling will play with the Cubs during the coming season, and the National League will adopt a 154-game sched- ule at its meeting next Tuesday. These were the assurances received to-night -by Chicago baseball fans, fol- lowing a conference in Cincinnati this afternoon between President Herr- mann, National Commission, and President Murphy, of the Cubs.

His salary will be the largest paid any player who is not a manager in the major leagues." Murphy also announced that he had changed his mind, and now favors the 154-game schedule. He "I don't want to do anything to break the harmony of the league. I am not going to be disagreeable over the adoption of the schedule. In fact, on second thought, I am inclined to believe that It would be for the best interests of baseball to play 154 games. I'm the last man in the world to want the world's aeries ab- andoned."
