While repeal of the controversial rule, sponsored by the Indianapolis club of the American Association, is supported by the higher minor leagues, a najority ol the smaller ones are against it, it *a,s learned. A three-quarter vote Is necessary for repeal, and it looks very much like the Indianapolis club and its followers will fall short of their mark. That means H would take the votes of only 15 of the 5« leagues to defeat the proposal. All hough the clubs were under strict orders from the Executive Council n ot to divulge their stand before [he olficial vote today, It has leaked out that the big three "f Ihe minors—tile Pacilic Coast I-CIIKIIC. League and American Association-have vnted in fnvor of repeal. So have Eastern Inter-stule. Colonial and North Atlantic Leagues. President Bob Carpenter of the Philadelphia Phillies, one of thn strongest objectors to the bonus rule, admitted defeat even before (lie iictunl vote was taken. DeWIU l.lhrs Itulc "I 'politicked' around the various minor leagues." i, c said with chagrin, "and i am sorry to report that bonus rule will be retained " President Hill DcWilt of the St. Louts Browns, a member of the Miijor League Executive Council, Is a staunch supporter of the rule. "Tlie bonus rule definitely Is * good thing lor baseball." he said "It prevents the stronger clubs from getting n strnngle-liold on all tlie good prospects. Maybe It hasn't helped much up to now. but give it a little more Mmc. When these richer clubs get their fill of bonus players, tbe rest of us will get a chance in the bidding. In the end. the rule will surely lent! to distribute the talenl evenly." The bonus rule makes a free agent who is paid more than S6.000 by Ilic majors. Triple A or Double A; S4,<100 by a Class A team; or $3,000 by any other club n "bonus player" forever. That means that | _. In most cases lie cannot be farmed once he's advanced to the parent club after his first year nnd is subject to unrestricted draft. Once " waivers nrn nsked on such n player. 11 he must lie given to the claim- iJ' Ing club. The claiming club, liow- ic ever, has the privelege of sending him down r.ncc to the minors.
