Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta >AQE SIX THE LETHDRroOE DAILT' HlSlUULD ^\T5DNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, ISIIS "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McManus i'5 d ME r I F Probably Will Wind Up Business and G�t Ready for Settled Conditions. New York, Oct. 16.-Major league haseball, in so far as it concerns the National league, -will be officially terminated at the annual meeting of the association to be held in this city on December 10. At the gathering the senior organization will formally wind up the business ajffairs of one season just closed and enter upon a hiatus whteh will remaia undis- turbed until such time as international affairs appear to warrant a revival of the professional end of the national game. This, at least, is the intention of the magnates ' at the present time, and nothing short of a most sensational change in the war status �within-the next two months will cause a shift in the plans of the league. It requires a long period of preparation � of protessi4na basebaW will and much detail work, prior to the i forth at the proper time, but be scattered to the four points of the compass; that some of the baseball parks will have been adapted to other forms of business, that problems would arise during the readjustment period which hare never confronted baseball magnates and that the best policy w^ill be tc^ make haste slowly General opinion appears to support the idea that a new and better order come that opening of each pennant race, and it i much of this advantage would be lost recognized that in the present unsettled state of baseball affairs it would be impossible to renew the operation of the circuit without ample time in which to formulate arrangements. A declaration of peace coming late nest spring would prove of little value, to the big league clubs, according to the opinion of prominent magnates.

It is understood, however, that the magnates will not tie their hands by any definite statements or arrangements, but will leave'the affairs of the organization in such a fluid state that business can be resumed at the proper moment with as slight a jar as possible.

Like Indcor Baseball. Basebal as played indoors during the winter months in the United States is proving remarkaby popular amons the allied soldiers in France. It is played, of course, out of doors, but the large indoor ball is used and the rules of Indoor bksfeball adhered to. It seems to be an easier; game as well for the British soldiers to learn than the more scientific and technical outdoor baseball. It is quickly learned, and its caliber is not too high to admit an amateur. The English soldiers find that any good cricket player possesses sufficient qualifications to feel at home in a few Innings. On athletic fields and aerodromes all over France, one may see scores of British, Canadian, Australian and American ofBcers and men playing indoor baseball with a vim and eagerness never displayed at cticket. "Indoor baseball knopks cricket into a cocked-hat." declared the star cricketer of one of the Guards regiments the other day. Probably the quicker action, the wider inclusive-ness of the game, and the laughs it arouses among the players and spectators-to say nothing of the rooting, appeals more to the soldier in Prance than the more serious and sedate game of cricket, and the equipment is simpler and cheaper.
