Cujler I'liom; 101 Pearl Diver, Paying Statement to Baseball Fans- (Editor's Note: The. Publisher of The News, relative to the dls- nission in regard to the banning of baseball broadcasts, some of that discussion misinformed—has written the following In the interest of clarification.i Tn order (lint there might be no misunderstanding by any local base-ball 1'nn as .to the true story concerning the abandoning of Oiler baseball game broadcasts. Radio Station KPDN and The Pampa News are hereby setting forth the facts ns they exist. We are taking every interested fan completely into our confidence with the whole story, complete with dollars and cents figures, so that every fan can judge for himself. Here they Last, year in order to stimulate interest in the revival of baseball in Pampa. Ihe Oiler manngcineiit was desirous of having- all home Sanies broadcast. KPDN carried every one that Network committ- ments permitted 'about 80 percenO. The Oilers had' a great season, both on the field niul at the turnstiles. Prior to the opening- ol the present season the Oiler management requested KPDN to broadcast out-of-town games as well, in order to keep interest in tlie Oilers alive between home stands. KPDN acceded to the request and in order to help defray part of the costs of the public service program proceeded to make contracts with the following sponsors: Shamrock Products. Thompson Hardware. Monarch Hardware, find the Courthouse Cafe for every game and the City Drug for every other game. Each sponsor agreed to contribute $10 per gamp •! toward defraying the costs of the broadcast, making a total of $50 foe/ one night and $40 for the next or an average of $45 ]>er game in town or oxil. Vv'c repeat, the above con tracts were obtained by KPDN — But KI'MN nes'li'i'li-d to set a signed contract «U;h the Oiler Management, i KPDN did not think one wa.s necessary) there' was only a verbal agreement. As to Ihi 1 costs of producing the broadcasts. KPDN's published rale.s for one hour in (lie evening is $135 for one time. $25.52 for 52 limes or $22.97 for 104 times during the year. Every West Texas-New Mexico leautie fan knows (hat it is indeed n rarity when a WT-NM game is t'im'shod in less than 2 hours—some of the "batting sprees" liv-i as long us 3 hours . . . the average probably will be found to be bei ween 2*, and 2' :: hours. However, being conservative in our figuring we will call the time consumed by each broadcast a.* 2 hours or $45.94 worth of time. So it can lie readily seen that on .the broadcast of home games KPDN breaks about even on it-, time cost if you don't add in the cost of the extra. ani'oiini'er and engineer and the cost of telephone lines necessitated by the. remote broadcast (from the Ballpark). Ihe broadcasting of out-of-town games i.s entirely different story. Remember these broadcasts were instituted for two, reasons; because KPDN wished to provide an ever-bettering, public service to its listeners . . . and because the Oilers and the WT-NM league wanted them. i The league voted at its sunn", meeting in favor of the broadcasts and made a contract with Wc.slern Union whereby the telegraph company, kicks back to the league treasury 10'; of the charges assessed to the Radio Sl:a(ion:,.i So. we now add to the costs outlined above for home games the Western Union charges for all road games. This charge is $2fi per game. Now it doesn't hike nn Einstein to figure out that KPDN loses a fair chunk of money ou.every out-of-town broadcast and that whatever profit is realized from the sale of the 2 hours time ($45 received for S45.94 worth of time) for the home game broadcasts is more than consumed in attempting' to reduce the loss incurred when the Oilers are on-the road. At the .start of (lie season there were 107 games available for broadcast <no facilities in Lamesa—No Sunday broadcasts', provided every game could have been played as scheduled. 107 games times $45 totals S'liUri.DO which is the, total revenue KPDN would have received from all the broadcasts for the season. Now lets start adding up cosis. 107 Games lames 2 hours equals 214. hours. Multiply this by S22.rt7 per hour and it totals $4915.58 which is the time cost for all the names. .Add to this cost $1275 pnid by KPDN to Western Union which represent* 92"i per game for 51 out of town games. Then add $1070 which i.s $10 per |.:ainc for 107 fjamcs paid by KPDN to staff personnel for overlime work and talent eharije;-:. Then add $ paid by KPDN to live telephone company for- a line to the local bad park from the f-jliiilin. Aflrr vnit have finished t.he addition you find that the costs to Kl'ON for tin; entire season aggregate 57202.08, which is exactly S'M77.(if! more linn KPDN lakes in. Or looking at it another way, the ball game:; give KPDN n wonderful opportunity to sell .$4915.57 worth «f time for'SiMoM.QS. Every way e:;ccpl, one that you look at it it is unprofitable for the station, and that, one exception is in the matter of building friends and listeners for the station. K.PDN wa.s willing to institute Road game broadcasts at iv monetary los. 1 - as a public service feature for the sake of the fans and listeners a.s loin 1 , as there remained the chance of regaining part of the loss on the Home games. However, when R. L. Edmondson, Oiler President, decided that it wa.s the home game broadcasts and not, the weather nor the .slow .start made by the Oilers that wa.s keeping the fans a.way from his ticket windows, he eliminated home game broadcasts. Thus, KPDN had nu other choice than to eliminate out of town broadcasts. So much for the Radio situation, now as regard to the sport page of The News, when Mr. Edmondson by his actions fin eliminating home game broadcast:,' demonstrated, that he believed that the Oiler games were of interest only to those who 'had paid him toll at the gates of his park, then The News, although It believed him wrong, abided by his ('valuation of the news worth of his Oilers. (Since the spectators at, the park on its fullest, nights represent only a very minute percentage of The Mews' 3C.COO readers, then the space which could be allotted lo reporting the game must likewise be small.! The News still believes that Mr. Edmonson is wrong in his attitude toward the funs and still believes that the interest of the fans and subscribers i.s the paramount consideration. Consequently, The News will no longer be a party with him in his treatment of the fans and will henceforth report the results of the games as completely and fully as its editorial judgment deems them worth. Hqv/cver, since the dollar sign seems to have become the guiding symbol of the Oiler management and .since under a mercenary operation the Oilers are competing for the entertainment dollars of' this community with other established entertainment purveyors, namely the theatres, then, placing both competitors on an equal footing, any reference to "coming attractions" or "future games" will be found in the paid amusement advertising columns. One point The News and KPDN wishes to make clear to all fans i.s this: Neither institution i.s attempting to fell Mr. Edmondson how in run his ball club. (However, we believe somebody should^ for the good, of baseball in Pampa i. In fact, both KPDN and The News will defend his right to manage or mismanage it as he sees fit. Purthnr, lie had a perfectly legal, if not a moral, right to eliminate home game broadcasts, in the absence of a signed contract between KPDN and Oilers Iiu.-orporaled. All of the above fuels and figures can easily be verified by any fan and any .staleinc-nts lo the contrary nrn falsifications or misreprcsenta- Uons. So, now, Mr. Fan judge for vourself.

England-'-f/ft— The Derby distance - ami Gordon Richard's old Derby Hoodoo caught up with Britain's "horse of the century"—Tudor Minstrel—in the 168th running of England's ancient classic yesterday and staggered home a fal- i tering fouth, ns a 40 to 1 French! outside surged out of nowhere to j win. j Route-going Pearl Diver, foaled during the war in occupied France and given an alias to hide his identity from the Germans,—and unheralded and practically unheard of before yesterday set the stretch afire in the final quarter-mile to roll in by four lengths to the complete astonishment of close to half-a- million folks. Including the Royal family, who turned out for the traditional Derby day in spite of morning rain. As a matter of fact, no one was more astonished than his owner, the young French banker, Baron Geoffrey do Wnldner, when the Diver—a son of Vatellor who fin- j ished second in the French Derby i of 1936. and Pearl Cap, who won the French Oaks in '31—undrapped his surprise package at the Downs. The Minstrel Man was the one who couldn't lose this time, the horse who had never even been challenged before—who had never been less than four lengths in front, laughing at the rest, In any of the six straight unbeaten starts of his career up to today. Practically everyone hrni been conceding liim the $38,004 winner's paycheck, and had wondered why any of the others in the field of 15 even bothered to show up.
