Commissioner Landis was a conspicuously drenched spectator at the postseason struggle between the senators and the pirates, but he shook off shower after shower with the ultimatum that baseball would be played In baseball weather in the future, provided he could make it so. As ths sixteen clubs went Into the closing meeting of their three-day session today, the commissioner was faced with solid opposition from the National league, which Indicated yes terday that thsra was little' hope of finishing its race prior to October S. But he was backed by ths complete lineup of American league clubs, which had votedyesterday tor the September z closing. The deadlock resulting from motion by an American league owner to end play , on the latter date gave ths com missioner his opportunity and his ac ceptance of It In support . of junior leagues' stand, requiring the 154 game schedules to be completed eight days prior to the date on which both races closed this year, sent from the meeting a countenance no more agreeable than that of President Ban Johnson Barney Dreyfus of Pittsburg, who had presented statistics showing that only three world series under October closing dates had been Interrupted by rain, and who has been entrusted with' the task of assisting President Heydley to draft the National league schedule, was not co cheerful. But the American league chieftain, whose relations with the commissioner were once as dark as the thunderclouds of the-last se ries, had a new and gratifying victory to balance the $10,000 salary increase voted to him by the junior circuit yesterday. Action on the closing date was the outstanding feature of what was characterized by the magnates themselves as a brief and peaceful meeting. Pos sibillty of an outbreak of war with the minors over proposed extension of the present optional player limit from eight to fifteen was averted by failure of the magnates to act on the question. Discussion of playing prob lems', Including the use 'of resin by pitchers, likewise was hurdled by an nouncement of the commissioner that he could convene a meeting of the Joint rules committee in February to consider recommendations of the National league. Eligible players of the Chicago White Sox of 1920 were voted a sum of 14,800.03, representing second place money which was withheld from sev en memDers of the club accused of "throwing" the series championship to Cincinnati the year before. The sum will be distributed pro rata among the men who were not involved in the scandal. , necommendations to the minor leagues that the period of player op- iiuna oe extended from two to three years completed ths day's work.

BOWK Among tha "brother acts" In baseball Emll and Bob Meusel loom largo. They aren't twins, but judging from the major league records they ought to be. EmiL having a start on his brother by five years In age, broks into ths majors considerably ahead of Bob, but when both war squared away In adjoining ball yards, tha even pace set by the two became on of ths marvels of the game. There, for instance, are "their respe tlva home run records. Ths first year Bob was with ths big show bs hammered out 11. Emll, a little more ac climated to major league ways, cata pulted the pill for the circuit fourteen times. Emll, with both ths Phillies and the Giants, couldn't do any better the following year, but Bob, with the Tankees, and both playing In the same ball park, boosted his mark to 24. Apparently there had been a family caucus after the 1921 season as each finished the 1922 season with sixteen round trips. Emil, being behind In the totals, made an effort to catch up In 192S, hammering out 19 while Bob could only compile 12. That didn't seem fair so in 1924 Bob made It 12 while Emil could get ths ball out of the lot only six times. , Ths racs was close this year but with the faltering Ruth out of ths picture and ths crippled Ken Williams on ths sidelines. It behooved Bob to do something handsome for ths family and hs became the homerun king with 20. Emil tried to keep op the 4acs during the sarly part of ths sea son, but failed to connect for mors than 21. a pretty fair record In Itself. Ths average for ths six years shows Bob with 17 1-2 home runs with i for Emll. In all around batting there is a similar record for ths two meusels. Neither has been out of ths .200 class but once during the alx years.' In Bob's first year -with the majors hs compiled a hitting percentage of .228. while Emll reached .209. Their six-year rec ord follows: , 1920 1921 1922 1922 1924 1925 This gives an average of .217 for Bob and .219 for Emll. It couldn't very well be any closer. It certainly Is proof of the even tenor in their up bringing. .

In each case It was ths young man's first experience In this- particular branch of safety first in the aviation Una, and they were warmly oompll-w men ted by friends and onlookers after their landings, which were said to be almost perfect. Ths plans was piloted in each case by Adjutant O. L. Rogers. Other leaps are planned to take place . during ths next two weeks!" which ths public is invited to witness. Thsrs also seems to be modicum of luck tnvolvsd too. Bob, despite his comparatively short career In ths majors, has cut in on three world's series. Justice demanded that Emll, as ths elder, should get a slice of ths championship me ten four times. , r t Hickcy-freeman A ti A Remarkable Metis Suiting Introduced by Hickey-Freeman An imported Scotch woolen, something like a fine homespun, of amazing strength.
