An attempt to buy up Chandler's contract failed when the commissioner reiterated his determination lo slick lo the »65,000-a-year Job until his five-year contract expires May 1, 1335. The owners voted yesterday to select a new commissioner to replace the former governor and U.S. Senator (roin Kentucky. This unprecedented action was taken in a special meeting after a series of conferences involving the 16 club presidents, bath leajn'e heads and a bevy of lawyers. This followed by about 20 hours Ihe failure of the club owners to vote Chandler a new contract. Chandler Ccunmpnts Chandler, who succeeded the tale Judge Kennesaw Mountain Landis in 1915. appeared in person before the owners lo make a plea for his job. Emerging from Ihe momentous session 15 minut-os later, chandler refused to comment. Later, however, he s^id: "I went in and told them the whole strry. I did not recede from my stand earlier m the day." Despite ihe drastic setback, Chandler last nlpht continued his annual custom of playing host lo the club officials at a dinner which went off without a hitch. The com- inl.viojirr seemed his oltl self, living up to his nickname of "i;appy."

Convinced that Chandler intended lo go through with his promise to finish out his term "to the last second" despite pressure to resign, a majority of tht owners were prepared to let him "rule" until they can come up with a new leader. There is much confused thinking on the matter for there is no clear . cut rule on the subject. Some own. ers believe, they cannot force thi commissioner to resign.
