(APi—There were Indications loday that a deadlock is developing among the 16 major league baseball club owners over election of a new commissioner. This could pave the way for choice of a darkhorse candidate. Th« owners meel in Chicago Sept. 20 legally empowered to elecL a successor to A. B. Chandler Iti the game's top job, paying $65,000 or $75,000 yearly. At the meeting in New York Aug,* 21 the field was winnowed down to five men: Gen, Douglas Mac Arthur. Milton Eisenhower, president ol Pennsylvania State College; Ford Frick, president of the National League; Warren Giles, president ot the Cincinnati Reds; Frank J. Lausche, governor of Ohio. It,la beginning to look a.s If none of these, even if available, could command the 12 voles needed for election. In the field are two well known figures who for one rea.son or another were not Included In the "famous five" that represented the considered choice of the baseball powers. These are James A. Farley, chairman of 'the board of Coca-Cola Export, mid George Trautman, 'the czar ol Ihe minor leagues. New Name Cropi Up Now a new name has cropped up. It is Benjamin H. Reese, who retired this year as managing editor of the. St. Louis Post-Dispatch He is known to have support among the big league owners. Although not well known nationally, he i highly respected within the newspaper profession, and Is a man of commanding physical presence and executive ability. Some baseball owners fee! tha the game does not need a famou: natne—in fact, they believe Uie Jo' will make (he man. There is precedent for selecting a Chandler him?o!r was one when he was chosen in 1945 (o suceed. Judge K. M. Landis. Those who talk about a niati outside the "famous five "—and there Is no bar to selecting such a man —offer thf'se arguments against the present field: General MacArthur at 72 is too old; Eisenhower probably wouldn't take the job; Frick and Giles have National Lcagvie ties lhat might handicap them; Lausche is in politics.
