PAGEiOCR BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JULY 10, 1940 Travelers Take Two From Vols Little Rock Team In Position to Move Out of the Cellar. ATLANTA, Ga., July 10. 'UP) — The. Little Hock Travelers could dream today of climbing out of tho Southern Association cellar after taking two close ball games from the Nashville Vols last night and pulling to within a half-game of the seventh place Birmingham Barons. The Travelers took the first gams 2 to 1 and then copped the nightcap 5 to 4. Russ Mcsserly received credit for the first game win and Al Hazel was tbe winner In the second game but Wes Flowers had to come to the rescue of both before the games were over. At Atlanta, tbe New Orleans Pell- cans made it three out of four from the Atlanta Crackers by taking the final game of the series C to 3. Bill Ayers, gunning for his iGth victory, was pounded for five runs In the first inning and although he settled down after that frame, the Crackers never got back In the game. At Birmingham, the Mobile Dears continued to move forward by whipping the Birmingham Barons 4 to 2. Paul Minncr scattered nine hits while the Bears got but seven ofT nick MtdkilT and Wally Gaddis but made them count. At Chattanooga, the Memphis Chicks again took over second place with the Lookouts dropping to third by scoring a 7 to 3 win behind tho effective hurling of Byron Cook. New series begin throughout ihi •league today with Mobile at Atlanta; New Orleans at Birmingham; Little Hock at Chattanooga, and Memphis at Nashville. Executives in Major Leagues Treat Unionization Lightly Oklahoma Woman Golfer Scout Troops Meet BOSTON, July !). (UP)—Hase- ball's t>lg problems ot the 1946 season, rnWs by the Mexican League and unionization of players by (ho American Baseball Guild, were treated lightly today by the National and American League executives. Baseball Commissioner A. 1) (Happy)- Chandler said ncilher question was brought up In the joint major league session yesterday, which marked the last time in whleh offielal business can be transacted until Dec. 4, when the club o'.uiers meet a^ain in Los Angeles. However, Direclor Robert Murphy of the players' union, .said he had Invited chandler and presidents of rjulh league;; to meet with him and discuss the problems ot unloni/ation. Murphy, whose headquarters are here, said that he wanted to propose a minimum salary of SG.UIIO a year for all major league players, a percentage of sale price for all players involved in trades, and insurance and benefit plans. Chandler said the question of union representation would be ui> to the Individual club owners and that tlic matter rlicl not concern (he leagues as a whole. Murphy, whose 1 request for a'ses- sion wit]] the t',u> leagues was made public after the executives adjourned their sessions, said he waf^ convinced forces were at wojk vo defeat his program. "I would like to talk with club owners about plans to defeat imton- i/.ation by raising players' salai and giving them representation on he baseball commission," he said. The plan lor representation on commission was made by Presl- leiu tarry MacPhall of the New fork Yankees and is tantamount o a 'company union/' Murphy said that the players he :ad talked lo would "not be C.Tken :i by proposals of a company nUm." "They realize thai such a con:<'.'-:;ion would he nothing more than means of wiling rid of the '.uild," he said. President Kam lireadon of the SI. Louis Cardinals was lo have reported on his (rip lo Mexico City lo dls; uss raids by Mexican League teams. Hosvever. he said nothing officially (luring the day-long meel- ng. making it plain thai Ihe problem of dealing with the "lucre loop" was up to individual club owners.

(UP)—Humiliation hung heavily today up:in the i once-proud National League. Never before in the Kl-year history of the All-star game, nor In tbe 45 years that the World Series has teen played, has one of tho major leagues so completely dominated the other. When the American League routrd the National. 12 to 0, yesterday before 34,906 fans at Fenway Park, it was the most one-skied shatoul in he 2-11 World Series and the 1:1 All-star contests that hav;-' been )layed in the history of rclatk.ns jt'lwcen Ihe two major circuits.
