5T.L0UIS STAR-TIMES .WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 17, 1940. ST.LOUIS STAR-TIMES CONZELMAN DEFINITELY RESIGNS AS BEARS' GRID COACH EIGHTEEN S,D KEENER'S EVERY LITTLE WORD in Rule 20. Section 1, Paragraph A of baseball's official law has a meaning all its own. And howl Pieced end to end they total only twenty-even words, yet they cost a major league ball club the astounding lum of 1500.000. shall, directly any financial league." And. so. clubs seemed graph A. hauled out the it I V Kenesaw M. Landis. rules and regulations, and stopped at page 248. Under the caption of "Stock Ownership" he read those twenty-seven words. The investigation was on. It required nine full months for Land Is to complete his task, and at the finish he announced that the Detroit club had ignored the meaning of those twer.ty-seven words. He acted pronto, awarding free agency to ninety-one players, assessing fines against the Chicago Cubs and our Browns, and ordering payment of $47,250 to varloua athletes who had been caught In tho maze of Interlocking relations. THE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT OF THE TIGERS HAD BEEN accused by LandU of Irregularities in operating Its gigantic minor league holdings. The specific charge lodged against the Detroit management was that it controlled more than one team in a league. Landls findings revealed that the Tigers did not obey tho strict letter of "Stock Ownership," and that the American Leaguers owned cr controlled players on the following clubs: Toledo. American Association; Beaumont and Forth Worth. Texas League; Sioux City. Western League; Alexandria, Abbeville and Lake Charles, Evangeline League; Hot Springs, Cotton States; Henderson, East Texas; Hobbs, West Texas'New Mexico; Newport, northeast Arkansas, and Tiffin, Ohio State. Interlocking agreements with two teams In the Texas League, and three teams In the Evangeline League, not forgetting connections In other circuits, caased Landis to crack down. It seems that the members of the Tigers' executive staff held more than rooting interest In players with the Beaumont and Fort Worth clubs both in the Texas League, you'll note and that the wide scope of business stretched deep into the minors, enabling other teams to arrange player agreements with the Texas Leaguers. All In the Interest of Detroit. 147.-0 AWARDED 14 PLAYERS. Landis' decision is one of the most unusual rendered by the high commissioner. It Is recalled he detected some violations on the part of the Cardinals in the spring of 1938 and stripped the local National Leaguers of a bushel load of Juvenile talent. The commissioner's fines In that case were in small numbers, however. Besides giving free agency to a flock of players In his verdict against the Tigers. Landis awarded cash bonuses, totaling $47550, to fourteen athletes. The players included in this peculiar decision follow; Jack Burns. Toronto. $700; William Ehrensberger. Meridian, Miss.. $6,000: Chester Morgan, Louisville, $5,000; Frank Reiber, Toronto, $5,000; Emile DeJonghe, Toronto, $4,750; George Archie, Seattle, $3,000; Ed Coleman, Portland, $3,000; Irving Bartling, Wllkes-Barre. $2,500; Clyde Smoll. Knoxville, Tenn., $200; Don French. $2,500; John Lindsay Brown, Portland, $100; Joe O'Hare, $1,500; Rr Fritz, $1,500; John Zapor, Durham, N. C, $1,000. Landis declared he decided on the cash payment to those players because they had been transferred ln previous deals. OTHER PLAYERS WILL BE PERMITTED TO NEGOTIATE with all bidders, accepting the best proposition that cornea along. Landis. always with an eye to the law, has decreed that tho Tigers and affiliates shall not dicker with the players mentioned In the Investigation for at least three years. Three major leaguers are included in the Detroit tie-up. They are: Infielder Bennv McCoy. Outfielder Roy Cullenblne and Pitcher Stephen Rachunok. McCoy and Cullenblne were members of the 1939 Tigers, and were considered excellent prospects, particularly the former. McCoy had been traded to the Athletics by the Tigers In a deal for Outfielder Wallie Moses. Landis has canceled that trade. Advance information relative to Landis' decision hit the major league circuit a month ago. with McCoy mentioned as one who would become a free agent. Spirited negotiations for McCoys services followed, according to evidence obtained by Landis. The Chicago Cubs were fined $1,000 and the Browns were penalized $300 for displaying too much Interest In McCoy's behalf In case the lr-fielder was cast adrift in Landis' disclosure. Clarence Rowland, scout for the Cubs.i was charged by Landis with asking McCoy to drop around and see him some time. Perhaps In the spirit of Jest, but, anyway, Rowland's conversation with the player cost the Cubs $500. The Browns Intimated that Fred Haney, their manager, was only fooling, too, when he made overtures to McCoy. This little joke removed $500 from the Browns' treasury. SEVERE BLOW AT TIGERS' CHAIN-STORES. Officials of the Tigers have announced that It will require years and years to repair the damage to their chain-store units by Landis' decision. The Commissioner declared he was not Interested In that part of the Tigers' moaning. Landis added that the Tigers abused the working agreement privilege by making "secret arrangements." Clause 20, Section 1, Paragraph A. containing only twenty-seven words, had been violated, and the Commissioner decided he had been hired to enforce the laws of the game, regardless of the offenders and the penalties Involved.

ACCEPTS POST ON ATHLETIC COUNCIL, CHEERED BY GRADS Retiring Football Mentor Willing to Do Anything. From Outside. That Might Help W. U. BY W. VERNON TIETJEN. Jimmy Conzelman, football coach at Washington University, today announced that he had definitely decided to resign the post he had held for eight years. In quitting his coaching Job, Conzelman agreed to accept a place on the school's athletic council. This information was contained In a speech by the retiring gridiron leader before approximately 250 members of the Washington University Alumni Association at a lunch eon today. Conzelman was given a American Hotel dining room. In part. Conzelman said: "I feel that It Is better for me not to with draw my resignation (tendered last Saturday but not accepted by the school's athletic board). I want to say that I shall be glad to roll no mr (sleeves and, from the out side, do any-thing that might help the Bears." Earlier In the day Conzelman had conferred Thro p. with Chancellor George R. Throop of Washington University and. fol lowing the conference. Chancellor Throop said that he had Instructed the coach to attend today's alumni meeting which Conzelman previously had said he would not attend. A third party at this morning's session was Dr. Frank H. Ewer-hardt, chairman of the faculty athletic committee, who, last Saturday, had received Conzelm an's resignation and who had recommended to the chancellor that the resignation not be accepted. Conzelmans decision not to with draw his resignation clears up the muddled coaching situation ana icavrs iuc t ,V l way open for (. resumption of Sa negotiations to Ewerhardt. bring Dr. John B. (Jock) Sutherland, former Pittsburgh University coach, to the Hilltop. After Conzelmans resignation had been announced last Saturday, Dr. Sutherland entered the picture as the choice of a group of downtown businessmen known as the "antl-Conzelman bloc." One member of this organization visited Pittsburgh recently, the Star-Times learned, and made a definite offer to the former Panther coach. In the meantime, another group of Washington University graduates, students and football players, rallied to the Conzelman cause and attempted to have the roach reconsider, and withdraw his resignation. Demonstrations were held on the Hilltop and this turn of events caused the antl-Conzelman group to call off a scheduled meeting here with Dr. Sutherland yesterday. Dr. Sutherland, contacted In Pittsburgh by a Star-Times representative, said that he would not come here until the Washington University coaching situation has been cleared up as he did not want to inject himself Into any factional fight. Gets Big Ovation. Members of Washington University's Alumni Association who gathered at today's luncheon for the showdown In the coaching situation, were extremely quiet until Conzelman appeared upon the scene. As Jimmy arrived, they broke Into a tremendous ovation and then became tense as the coach stood before them and began to unfold his farewell statement. His admirers, hoping that Conzelman would tell them that he had decided to remain on the Hilltop, seemed stunned when Jimmy said: "I feel that it Is better for me not to withdraw my resignation." This was the message Conzelman had flashed that he had officially closed his eight-year coaching career at Washington University. Conzelman Perturbed. After delivering his speech. Conzelman, apparently perturbed, departed. Kendall Harrison, a member of the faculty athletic council and director of publicity at the university, then addressed the meeting. He assured those present that Conzelman's resignation had not been requested by Chancellor Throop or by the faculty athletic committee. Several of the alumni then Jumped up and shouted: "Well, then, who did fire him. Let's get to the bottom of this and make it public." To this Harrison replied: "I do not know." At this noint the meetlnir thrown open to general discussion and all parties were Invited to give tneir views. Makes a Motion. Then Paul Hewitt made a motion that a committee of eight alumni and two students be formed to go Into the situation and to plan for the future. The motion was carried with only one dissenting vote. Claude McElwee then took the floor and said that "four gentlemen downtown took It upon themselves to ask Conzelman to quit. They were Billy Connett. Adrian Frazier, Joseph Vollmar and Walter Heln. Those are the facts. Just look around and see who Is here today P Then someone In the audience asked: "Did that crowd put pressure on Ewerhardt to ask Conzelman to resign ?- Harrison answered by saying: "Ewerhardt counselled Jimmy, just as a bit of friendly advice, but made no official statement. I know that Ewerhardt had done the same thing several times even as long as a year ago." Conzelman was appointed as football coach at Washington U. in 1932, replacing Dr. Albert Sharpe, who had held the position for the five previous seasons. Under Conzelman'! direction, the Bears won rousing cheer when he entered the Statements by Conzelman and Chancellor Throop Conzelman's complete statement follows: My resignation was announced last Saturday after it had been requested. In the meanwhile. I have been a.sked to reconsider. To make a decision one way or another has been a problem. On one hand there were loyal associates, players and alumni whose concern for Interests was a stimulating experience. I felt that to them I was under a definite obligation to give adequate thought to returning to Washington. On the other hand, there were those who felt that a change of coaches was desirable. I feel that situations of this kind create factional differences that are not easily adjusted. After all, we are Interested solely In the present and future of Washington University athletics. So In an effort to bring together these factions and to organize united alumni spirit and the furtherance of Washington University football interests, I feel that It is better for me not to withdraw my resignation. I want to say that I shall be happy to roll up my sleeves and, from the outside, do anything that might help the Bears. Throop's letter to Conzelman follows : While I regret your feeling to termi nate your direct responsibilities at the end of the present academic year, I appreciate very much the fair apd constructive attitude which you have taken of the situation. I am very glad that you have accepted my suggestion to become a member of the university's athletic council with the understanding that you will give particular attention to the organization and supervision of athletic publicity. Your willingness to serve as a member of a committee to present a recommendation for a football coach Is in line with the co-operation on which I have always depended. Best regards and good wishes. two Missouri Valley championships. In 1934 and 1939. and had a record of forty victories and thirty -four defeats. 4 Apply for St. Louis U.

Meanwhile, two high school football coaches, Frank Staab of St. Louis U. High and Bert Fenenga of Cleveland, were seen at the Billiken athletic office yesterday but did nqj; divulge the purpose of their visits. Yale Athletic Head Sounds a Warning NEW HAVEN. CONN.. Jan. 17. (U. P.) Dr. Clarence W. Mendell, Latin professor who recently be came head of Yale University athletics, today assailed "all this super-organization" which has developed In college athletics. "It Is bound to collapse sooner or later under Its own weight,". Dr. Mendell said. "I can't see any advantage In having all these leagues, one for every sport. "What It amounts to Is that Instead of arranging our own schedule as we see fit we are told by the central office In New York whom we will play and when. It takes the thing out of our hands and about all that we get out of It is some unnecessary, and usually undesirable publicity." Last Night's Fights (Bv Unltrd Pre.

BASEBALL'S WHOLE STRUCTURE BASED ON 'FARMS' FRICK System Cannot Be Thrown Out Unless Something Replaces It, He Says. THILADEXIMnXjan. 17. (U. P. Baseball's farm system cannot be thrown out the window "just like that" unless something is found to replace it, according to President Ford C. Frick of the National League. Frick, here to confer with President Gerald P. Nngent and General Manager John M. Ogdcn of the P h 1 1 a dclphia Phillies' minor league system. said he had read the edict of Commis sioner K. M. Nugent. Landis on chain store baseball operations. "I can't tell what effect it will have on the National League clubs," he said. "We won't know until wc have tried it out. Baseball's whole structure Is predicated on farms and the development of young players. If the clubs can't educate their players from the ground up, what's the use of being in business." Frick disclosed that the Joint rules committee of the major leagurs would meet Landis at his Bcllealr, Fla., home February 12 to make the rules uniform in both circuits. Phillips Have Won 110 of 133 Game The Phillips 66 basketball team of Bartlesvillc, Okla., which comes to the Municipal Auditorium Sunday to oppose the St. Louis Rangers in a Missouri Valley A. A. U. game, has a three-year record of 110 victories in 13 3 c o n t ests. The team has six players who have received All - America mention of some sort, while the remaining four have been All- iStar or AU-Con-jjference players. The Rangers, meanwhile, will be out to avenge a previous 38-35 defeat at the hands of the Phillips. In the previous game, Ad Dietzel and Jim Babcock scored all but three of the Rangers' points, but Coach Russ Lyons feels that other members of the team, who since have acquired quite some shooting ability, should account for more points Sunday. Babcock has made 105 points In nine games, while Dietzel has 89 In seven contests. The Stockham Legoin Post girls will play In a preliminary game Sunday against an opponent not as yet chosen. rzJ Dietzel. l?7 R ) 9' " M . .... v. y -4 IVfX- ' . f1ni)r - 5w "- " - j.-.ot.a.atAa, Racing Hialeah Entries FtnST DACE Maiden S-year-olds, Nur-aery Course: NHrchlleh. 117; Double Call, U'O; Wine Wrack. l'JO; Tratimeliu. lid; Sabulus, 120; Fair Chance. 1-0; Bubs, 117; Indeed, 120; Mnrclaire, 120; String Music, 120; xl.ndv Jnfla. 1U; Hue Taluk.

M'BRIDE HIGH CAGE TEAMS HAVE HELD DAY, WIN 4 GAMES Vanity Ties for League Lead With Victory Over Weitera Wellston Triumphs. The basketball situation at Mc-Brlde High School was a rather muddled affair not longer than four daya ago. The Colonnaders were having a difficult time keeping their heads above water In the race for the Prep League championship and they were precariously close to last place. But after they had snapped their losing streak with a triumph over St. Lcuis University High, things began to look a little brighter for Coach Toddy Kamp's organization. Today the prospects of the title finding its way to the North Kings-highway school were brighter than ever before, for the Colonnaders are tied with the Junior Blllikens Ksmp. and South Side Catholic for first place. Each team has two victories and one defeat. McBride's decisive 49 to 30 victory over an invading Western Military Academy team last nliht brought about the three-way tie. From the first tlnoff until the last it was the Colonnaders game, and after they had amassed a 1? to 2 lead at the end of the first quarter they were never in danger of being headed by the Cadets. 14 Points for Obie. Practically every regular on the Colonnaders had a glorious evening camping under the Cadets' basket. Ed Serwan, Francis Haug. Jim Nichols and Ray Oble found the surroundings more than mildly Interesting and fired the ball through, the net at regular Intervals. Ser wan was credited with eight point. Haug with six, Nichols with eleven, and Oble with fourteen. To add further glory to McBride High, the school's Junior varsity. B and "C teams, also came through with victories yesterday. The Jayvees triumphed over Western's reserves. 15-14. and "B's" and C's" won from Christian Brother! by scores of 22-8 and 24-16. Meanwhile, only one other league game was played In the district yesterday. In that contest, a Little Five Suburban League affair. Well ston came from behind to nose out St. Charles in a thrilling engage ment, 19-18. St. Louis University High was unable to stop Cliff Harrison, and Beaumont turned in a 25 to 20 victory over the Junior Blllikens. Harrison, a center, scored eight pomta on four field goals. Oonk Leads Cod . Don Oonk of Country Day led his team to a 23 to 19 triumph over Chaminade yesterday afternoon. The Flyers, behind at the half. 11-8, were never able to overcome Co- dasco's margin. Maplewood. Hancock. St. Peter and Fairview were other prep cage teams to score non-league decisions. The Blue Devils, who trailed at the half, 8-6, came to life in the last two periods and defeated Ritenour. 20-13. Ross Nagel paced Coach Ben Douglas' club with nine points.
