That Calgary was opposed to the splitting of the schedule into two series on account of their high posi- tion in 'the percentage column on July 9, but had done so to preserve the weaker teams. It had put the Calgary club out financially as they had lost 7 or S home games thereby. Taking the whole season through he pointed out that Calgary had won the pennant by real baseball, having a comfortable margin of over 40 points above Edmonton on the original schedule. 3.

A Saskatchewan-Alberta league was voiced: to include Lethbridge, Calgary. Edmonton, Moose Jaw, Regina and saskatoon.

Calgary and 2 at Edmonton. Mere Mr.' Eckstorm explained that his meaning had been misunderstood. He had intended to convey the idea that, if any, of the smaller cities won the second series. Calgary was the logical place for the championship games but in case Edmonton or Win- nipeg were the contenders the games should be divided, Calgary to be given the preference. That was the com- mon sense idea anyway, he said. Base- ball should be rim on common sense, and no school boy tactics. Of course Mr. Gray, of Edmonton, wanted to take the bunting home with him; that was what he came for. How- ever he hadn't expected the controver- baseball town. Fifty Cents Admission A proposition to increase the price of admission to games was favorably received. It may be raised to fifty cents. This will be decided- at the January meeting.
