Although Murphy emphasized hat the Guild intended to work n "harmonious relationship" with club managements, he \vas hitter in his denunciation of the "despotic tactics" which he * salcl had brought about "baseball serfdom." 'Organized baseball no longer _n rule with the iron hand ot an absolute dictator." Murphy said. "From" now on it must deal witl: organized baseball players in th^ form ot the baseball guild. "The guild's purpose is to right the injustices of professional baseball and to give a square deal to the players, the men who make possible big dividends and higti salaries for stockholders and club executives." In Washington, owner Clark Grif- lith of the Senators belittled th'! reported progress of the guild and said lhat a labor union [or baseball wouldn't work. "It just can't be done." he siud. ays of the federal league in 1912, ill none ever succeeded. During he war. labor representatives of he Congress of Industrial Organi- iillons were active in efforts to inionizc players. Murphy said lhat whenever any .cum had .sufficient organized strength it would petition for lu- lor board recognition as the collective bargaining ngciu and fiat from then on il would conduct its Business in exactly the same manner as any other efficiently operated union. There arose the possibility lha baseball players might, actually a sonic time go on strike- and picke the parks, although Murphy said he hoped that mutual understand ing would make It possible fo lhe best intercsUs of all parties t price .sold lo another club. 3.—Disputes between players and mnnngemenl on salary and- other conditions of employment to be settled by collective bargaining.

'A majority has been virtually achieved on three or four teams in thp American and National Leagues." Murphy said. "The clays of Baseball serfdom will soon be over.
