Shibe, president of the Philadelphia Athletics and one of the last of the group who put the American League into major leacwe basebaU In 1901. is dead at the age of 70. He died last night of a heart ail ment aggravated by a hearvy cold which he contracted three weeks ago, just as be began his Winter vacation in Florida. He was brought home immediately and placed in a hospital, where his condition grew steadily worse. Shibe lapsed Into unconsciousness early yesterday. At his bedside at the end were his widow, Mrs. Ida Shibe; his brother. John D. Shibe. vice president and secretary of the A s, and his two sisters, Mrs. George Reach and Mrs. Elfreda MacPar-land. He had no children. The question of who will replace the veteran magnate as head ef the baseball club was a matter ef con jecture. In some quarters it was thought his brother would take the helm. Others, however, believed that Connie Mack, manager of the Athletics, might become the new president. Although the ownership of the club stock has been kept a secret, it was reliably reported Mack own controlling Interest. Born in PhUadelphia Jan. 13, 1866, Shibe 's interest in basebaU was first evident when he played on amateur teams. In 1901 his father, the late Benjamin F. Shibe, and Connie Mack combined their interests to purchase the Athletics' franchise. Tom Shibe bought stock in the organization and was made vice president. He succeeded to the presidency after the death of his father in 1922. Because of the press of other business, Shibe entrusted much of the playing operations of the club to his brother and the veteran Mack. Shibe 's interest in baseball also had another angle, that of manu facturing baseballs and baseball equipment. In his office there is a museum containing baseballs used many years ago when the sport was in its infancy. Shibe invented much of the machinery used in the manufacture of baseballs.

It was Illustrated by Mrs. Van Wyck under her maiden name of Matilda Browne and revealed a thorough knowledge of life in the city from 1860 until the turn of the century.

Among these were the grass plots "which used to give many buildings a suburban appearance," the trees which once lined 5th Ave. and residential side streets and the customs of the days when New Yorkers "really dined and didn't just eat." The author's father, Henry Van Wyck, dealt personally with A. T. Stewart, Lord Ac Taylor, James Mc-Creery and Arnold Constable. The family account has for many years been the oldest on the books of Park & Tilford. One of Mr. Van Wyck's public school teachers was Dr. Thomas Hunter, after whom Hunter College was named.

Also surviving are two sons, Henry B. of Norwalk, Conn, and Frederick Lawrence of Charleston, W. Va, and a oaugnter, Mrs. Louise Varick.

Dr. Robinson, who descrlbed him self as a liberal, resigned from Co lumbia in 1919 after a controversy in which the university trustees were charged with opposing freedom of expression. Professors James McKeen Cattel and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Dana had been expelled two years before for opposing the World War. and Dr. Robinson, together with Charles A Beard, professor of political science, sided with them. After resigning Dr. Robinson and Professor Beard formed the New Schapl for Social Research, rfeads History Body Dr. Robinson was elected presi dent of the American Historical Association In 1929, and also was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the Royal Historical Society.
