"We've got to look e lace, n e ve got to be ready for every emergency. 'We must, be prepared to face the uncertainly and you fellows must make plans accordingly." While denying, in effect, thai he had told a group of newspapermen informally to expect total mo- tilizitlon and that baseball may have to cease operations, Chandler left no doubl that the game must beVrennrcd for just such an emergency. "We are coming to a critical period," he told his audience of 1,000. Chandler told of a recent visit with President Truman in Washington when he discussed baseball and the world crisis with the nation's chief executive. The commissioner said the President's views were encouraging. The war threat to baseball hinted at by Chandler's address pushed into l.he background the bonus and high school rule repeal and even the anticipated arrival of Branch Rickey and Billy Meyer.
