For a general effect on Ihe game, the majors' decision not to admit tile Pacific Coast League to big-league status wns the most Im- .portant product or the conclave, but the baseball men loll New York talking about the trades (hat had — and had not — been made.

The rest of the American League nets the shudders at the thought of that power-packed Red Sox outfield — Spence, Dom Dimagglo, and Ted Williams. Baseball men were agreed that the deal for Spence, added to the purchase from the Browns last month of Vcrn Slepliens. Jack Kramer, and Ellis Kinder, made the Red Sox the team to beat In the American League this year. The Sox big problem now Is whether their pitching staff, headed by Tex Mughson, Dave Ferrlss, and Mickey Harris, will return to top form, As lor the Pacific Coast League's bid for major league status, ' the meeting rejected that by saying/ "at present there appears to be no minor league whlcji Is entitled to major league clnssiflcntlon."
