Box scores: First Game Jonesboro Cost Too High So Kansas City Isn't Interested in Brownies (One In a series of stories np-* praising the cities reportedly bidding for the major league baseball franchise of the St, Louis Drowns.)

The others are Baltimore, Milwaukee, Houston, Dallas and Los Angeles.

"Second, buy the Blues from the New York Yankees and that outfit wouldn't talk business for less than SI 50,0 00. "Third, buy the franchise from the American Association and that's another $200.000. 'Fourth, increase the seating capacity of Blues stadium here from its present 17.500 by another 13.000 nnd at present prices that would be another 52,000,000 or more. That all actds up to $4,450^000 and no group here has admitted Interest in such a venture. Ernie Mehl. baseball writer of the Kansas City Star who has been following the Kansas City Blues through their thick and thin years in the American Association, doesn't think much of the Browns' chances of landing here. Mehl points out that the Blues' record attendance of 430,000 was set over a 168-game schedule in 1923 Next highest was slightly more than 400,000 for a championship club In 1947. Last year fewer than 250,000 came through the turnstiles. , "Wbo'tl Put It TJp" The sight of big name players would arouse a great' amount of interest for a few years—until the novelty wore off—but the Investment likely would be too big a gamble at this time, Mehl writes. "The • ramifications are so deep any hope for a major league team here must necessarily now be an extremely faint one," Mehl said. Kansas City has quick access to some 750,000 persons and 11 isn't too far removed from the recognized Major League borders. But who Is going to come up with $4,450,000, even though the New 41 11 12 York Yankees could be tnlked into AB R H hunting another spot for their only AAA franchise. No one here seems to know the godfather.

Webb said. 'When n ball club—especially one such as the Yankees-is not, winning, there nre bound to be stories of trouble cropping up. That Is the natural follow-up for the reverses our team has suffered on the field. But the club has not given up on the field and we are not giving up In the office. "We have made some moves which did not turn out, as expected but Hint's nil part of 'this baseball business. When the team wins, everything Is fine, but just let It have n bad season—or part of a bad sen- son—nnd then things begin to pop.
