Ihe SI Louis Cardinals found it iilmos Impossible lo compete with Hit richer clubs in bidding foe promising players. The fabulous prices of from $25,000 lo $125,000 for minor league aura ond prospects were just coining Into vogue. Branch Rickey line been lucky to untlier $10,000 'to tether with which lo purclinse Jesse 'Unities from the Knnsns City nines In the fall of 1919. It seemed like a vicious circle The rich clubs bought the good players, Ihereforo had ihe hcvu tennis and the largest income from attendance. Rickey saw (his as L-urly ns 1919 when he assumed the inanngciuenl of Uic Cardinals and occupied tlic office of president, ns well. B.

' Competition from the well-fixed Pittsburgh Plrnlcs and the Ciiicin nali Reds was n bit ico much for the Cardinals, loo. Another com- pctitor shortly was lo become aggressive—the Chicago Cubs, with the William Wrigley, Jr., millions behind them. In ndditiou to iheir rivals on Hie playing field, the Cardinals had American League organizations lo contend with In negotiating-for the pick of tlie smaller leagues. The Immensely wealthy brewer, Col. Jacob Rii|i|)ert, was determined to put and keep the New Vrafc Yankees In the thick of the light. The broken-hearted old Roman, CharlevA. Comiskcy, was nltempt.

Several years ago Ihe Cardinal .system developed to the point where scouts visited high school; all over Ihe country, nnd, whil< they did not sign lads in these in- ilituUcns. oblnlncd written promises trial the boys would deal with the St. Louis club first In the event they elected lo follow base ball professionally. Rickey definite'ly decided to p into the chnin store business in big way in 1921. B. R. sent the veteran scout, Charley Barren, lo. trail a short- slop in the Western Association. Tlic St. Louis club, pinched financially, could not pay more than SI.OOO for this particular bit of ivory. BurretrolTered that amount. Tlic owner of the club felt that if the Cardinals ollcred $1,000.'another big league club would pay more, other clubs were eager lo take the sharp-eyed Barrett's recommendation. The We-stcrti Association owner negotiated with another club, and obtained $3,000 for his youngster. Rickey's answer to this was the purchase of half interest In the Fort Smith. Ark., club of the same circuit. He made up his mind to develop his own players. R.inncr Crop From First St. Ixmis Farm Among the players who come from that Fort Smith club were Chick Hafcy, Taylor Douthit p c p. per Martin, Wild Bill Hallahan and Flint Rehm. The Cardinals bought the Syracuse club the following year, later transferring the franchise lo Rocli- cv.tcr. The Houston club was taken over. The St. Louis club starts the 1935 season owning 10 or more minor league franchises outright, Includ- is usually staged on Momlny night but has ucen changed to Wednesday this week because of a conilicting date with national guardsmen, Uic later having n special Inspection •session tonight.
