UNCERTAINTY—Moiling definite was learned during the conference with the Rebel bosses . . . Tlie biggest reason was because they are leaving the selection of the malinger up to the Memphis chicks with which club they have a working agreement . . .

McDonald extended his hand and greeted Kerr like a long lost rich uncle . . . "Do I know who he is? Sine, It's Dick Kerr. Why. I'd know that guy anywhere!" ... The first thing McDonald showed Dick was a picture of the 1311 team hanging on the wall and think tlic league could use more men like Dick lo sec him In Kerr, and I'd like From a pub licity standpoint he would be terrific.-. . . Although it has been years since he performed in the big show, he is .still good newspaper copy . . .
