TH�T':> J06T UKE\ou.^LV^TS THtNMNre mighty good things for baseball, but not in conjunction. The great majority of the dollar signs that have been injected into the game have been.the work of scribes, -'who have had to guess at the figures to a great extent. For instance, ComU- *,key, to my certain knowledge, never has told exactly what he paid the Athletics for trie release of L'ddie Collins, nor the exact figures In that star play- ' er's contract. Yet the guess whteh we made at the time hab been publlsbod ao often it has come to be 'accepted ' b8 auUientlc. ' A* to Ptayert' Salaries \ The salaries paid to players seldom , are, disclosed even to close personal 'IriendB of the club owners. The play. 'ers, if they talk salaries, are prone to add a tew ;cipher8, knowing their words will not be disputed or disproved. So the'great majority of the figures having to do. with . baseball finances, except during the world's series, are guess work or unauthentic hearsay, Conse-'quently they are of small value. . When you stop to think of It, the dollar is a poor standpoint by which to .determine the value of a ball player. It is too unstable. The dollar of today IB not worth anywhere ne^arly as much as the dollar of 10 or 15 years ago. . It in a blame sight less stable than batting .or pitching averages, which haven't changed perceptibly for twenty years. � How Big Deals Compare We have recently been reading about a couple of player deals which surpassed all previous transactions of the kind In stupondousnesa. The dollar sign was evoked to prove It. But it is doubtful, when you stop to think of ii, if the coin said to have been paid tor Alexander and KllUfer would buy any more food or other necessities of life today than the t^rtce alleged to have been paid for Marty O'Toole would have purchased when that deal was made. The dollar is getting to'be about the cheapest thing in the worldr-exccpt hum'nn life-and the outlook is that il will continue to buy less and less of the things that really count. So why couttnue to rate,, a player's ability by such a standard?:, Let's speak and-Write of deeds instead of dollofB for a apell>wfaen discussing ttasebairand see works. Lot's 'Chdnge-;the label of Connie Mack's tlOO,d06. infield" to "world's champion Infield''--which it was. Our "All American" Battery Let's all refer to the new Ciib battery de liixe as the "All American battery" instead ot the "$100,000 battery.' Wo know it Is the foriner, but we don't know It Is the latter tor sure. And, it It is, somebody may pay |200,-000 ot 1918 money without getting halt as good a battery for it, the way the dollar is going down and everything else is going up. , ' As high an authority as the president ot the United States expressed tlie wish-that baseball be continued, along-wlth the other sports, when the suggestion'^ was made that American league ("^arks would be closed it it would help win the war. It is up to us who are too old, or too young, or otherwise unable tictively to serve the colors, to do all we can to keep the nation's pastime on as high a plane as possible, so long as it shall serve to Improve the morale. of civilians and soldiers.

ALTA.^ ' ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ BY RAY PEARSON Judging by the activity being displayed by followers of boxing in New York, the Empire state will not long be without legalized sport. There are a number of persons who may be tabbed the good ones of the game who, even before the demise ot the Frawley law on Nov. 15, had set tlie wheels in motion to bring about the return of boxing. The result of these efforts will bo shown at the next session of the state legislature when a now measure is presented. It is said this bill already has beei^ framed, and while It bears resemblance in general construction to the Frawley law there are several mbdiflcatlons. A little more than six years of boxing under the Frawley law gave plenty of opportunity to flnd'out the strong and the weak points of suchsportand it is the hope ot those who,have their hearts tn the mitt game tliat the weak points that cropped up in the past can be eradicated. '   Club Bouts Not a Success The effort made to ins(itutei."club boxing" after the Frawley ''law died has" not proved successtuH-ln fait,'It ra'ght more properly be called falnlre. It is no easy business to Hue up enough uona fiae members to puUiptl'.BhowB wi'.hout losing a lot of money, for the boxers and their managers aren't. in the habit ot scrapping tor '.'love. They demand the coin and won't do business unless they get it, so It's up to the promoters to come, across or' close up, and the latter has been ilohe in most cases. The matter of police interteronce also had to be considered, and some ot the "clubs" were haled Into court to explain their methods of conducting shows. The "clubmen" scored a big victory, when one Judge ruled It was O.K. for them to go ahead and stage contests for their members... But even that does not make^ the sport under the present plan successtul. War Booms Rlnig Game' It is surprising how many big men ot the country are strongly in favor of boxing, and In' view of this It is even more surprising that the sport is curbed in so many states. There is little doubt tha^the woi- is resulting In a lot of good tor the boxing gamo At all the army camps boxing is the biggest sport, and mpgt every canton ment has a star boxer tor boxing lu itrucbr, Benny Leonard, -Charley Vhite, Johnny Kalbane, Mike Qibbons, lichie Mitchell, and numerous other ing stars are' spending their time eaching the soldiers how to fight with heir maulies. A Brooklyn newspop^r, taking the hip hand to aid in the passage ot a Bw boxing measure in New York, has sked tor and received: the views of uraerous big men on boxtng. ' T.
