LOYAL FKf.r.EK STOCK WITH CLEVELAND CLUB •'• It is believed that the only re'a^ son why Landls did not throw Farm Boy Feller on the open market wns that he feared the effect the tremendous bidding would have had on one so young. So the Cleveland club was let down with n fine. Feller, who went on to break the major league record for strikeouts and to win 24 American League games before he '.ras 21, easily would have brought $100,000. 'I believe r could have had my free agency as easily as I can snap mv fin°«s," Feller has said since. "It would have been worth n lot of money to me. "But I owed too much to Mr. ilapnicka and the Cleveland club lo take advantage of a technicality. As far as money goes, mi icing all right DH it is. And I l 'ave tho satisfaction of knowing •hat I si nek with the people who stuck wilh me. when f wns iust a young punk with a sore shoulder." There you have another reason why Robert Feller was the creat- cst pitcher in baseball before he conld vote. New rnstorfire llefnsrd TWEED. Ont. (UP) — Iimainc nny (own turning down a new postoflicc.

Both Owner Phil K.

Since neither Chicago organization has- e.xtensivc minor leagui properties their reaction could not be construed as the probable trend It was the second time in eleven days that Landls had attacked tnc farm system. In most cities, baseball men still were reeling from his edict of Jan 15 which spei-ilied lines and suspensions for ciub officials who violate his 5 point interpretation ol the term "working agreements." Tho general bewilderment led W. G. Bramham, president of ihe National Assoication of Minor Leagues to urge LMdis last night to wail until next year to enforce the 5 points. Several major league clubs already are far advanced in their farm system plans for laia, he sjid. Tlie white haired commissioner, vacationing in Florida, stikl he had not received an official nolije. from Brnmham and therefore declined comment,.
