Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - October 18, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta page six THE LErniBniDCE DA1LT HERALD FRIDAY, october 18, 101� The Sdo THEY HAD BEST OF Scored More Runs, They Say- Lack of Funds Made Them Refuse Fifth Game. Dellon of the Calvary Monarch* has a poor to the charse made liy the Medicine Hat juniors thru the Calgary crow are a bunch of quitter?, lie say?: They're at it again, poor old Modi-cine Ha\ will they ever net through crabbing? t'nder a story headed that tho Monarchs are the champion base-bawl pikers of IMS, the Hat News sport scribe insists that the Hatters have a better team than the locals oven though we lead on the total number of runs in the four games. The, sport scribe of our eastern city paper, ndds, that tho Monarchs were afraid to play because* Chief Mler* xva* going to pitch. Oh. boy. wouldn't that get a guy's nanny? Just think after the Monarchs have allowed tho 'Chief to pitch 31 innings against them that they would be afraid to let hlni go nine more. If we remvniber rightly the Monarchs were anxious to have "Chief pitch the second game at tho Hat? It must have been humiliating to the writer of the story in the News to see, voting Sttni Savage step to the plate, nine times and get four safe blngtcs. two of them two baggers, off friend "Chief." the 19 year old junior. Still we have nothing against Mlers, he's a sport. Tho story speak* of the "high cost o" living," but doesn't eay that they expected 11 ball players to tstay In tho hotel two nights, and eat six meals on a total of $14.S5.  What a bunch of sports that Hat bunch are, barcball profiteers we would term them, beating a bunch of I kids out of $Si like taking cents from a biind man. i When the thine was spoken up at ! the ball park, they blamed > writer j of tho story for agreeing to accept the ! paltry sum of SMS'., and the Hat [team's manager asked us to k around | to th" secretary and prove it. We tia 1 had a good meal before that and felt like something in t!:n: line and toi I up the challenge and led the way. Hu; !d:1 the secretary agree on his la.-t j statements'.' nothing doing, he ju-t J started crabbing on how much th"y l lost on the trip to Calgary, did not think of the weight we would lose if j we didn't eat. ! "Hatters reluctantly take champion-j ship by default." says a head!in-\ lie-! luctantly. eh? It's a bet you grabbed | at that idea of some "knowair so 'quick, lightning would have had noth-' ins on you. Remember, Medicine Hat, we lead by two runs on the total .score. Who has the better team? You beat ; us a-L' and we beat you and � then knocked you to a frizzle by 4. j We'll admit right her,, that when you beat us you beat e,s richt, but we notice you blame losses on darkness and the sun and that kind of stuff. \V� were there-, and we know.

I come a free agent, and upon the r-  I sumption of big league baseball ! would lie in a position to sell his j services to th" highest bidder. it is understood, however, that the magnates will hold that the business of baseball was .suspended to operate under instructions from the covern-went and that since the rinht to operate wa.-i beyond their control all contracts and other legal phases are fuicponded automatically, I'n ler this construction the contract of the play-j er carries over until such time as the government Rives consent for a renewal of tho business of baseball. Thus If the professional leagues do not resume until 1&20 the year of l'.U'J would be considered as non-existent in so far as it might affect a player's contract. There is still another angle to the proposition which Involves the magnates and the two major leagues as individual.? and cooperating business organizations. It might lie held to bo within Ihelr rights to refuse to negotiate with or for the services of a player who, previously to the suspension of the gam", wid the property of another club. If such action were generally adopt'.".! the player would lie obliged to report buck to his original club for a renewal of his contract or a release.
