It was handed this task at the leagues' recent New York meeting. Apparently sounding the sentiments of most other owners, P. K. Wrigley of the Chicago Cubs and a conmilttee member, said he would like to see a new agreement ,which would "codify the rules" of baseball operation tmder a conmilssloner. "We all agree that Judge Landis did an incomparable job of running baseball for 24 years," declared Wrigley, "but the time has come— for we should have learned something in those 24 years—to say just what the commissioner had jurisdiction over—there should be a set of specifications drawn." He referred to a clause in the old agreement which gave Landis carte blanche in any and all matters relating to baseball. Numbers (Continaed From Page One) cans were assaulting that sector alone.

(APi—Two alleged German agents nabbed in the New York area probably will be tried by a military tribunal. This would follow the precedent set In 1942 when eight Nazi agents landed in this country from enemy submarines were tried by a seven- man military court. Six of this group were executed and two were assessed prison sentences.

"Although some race track em­ ployes may find it necessary to work at reduced earning, others may find even better paying jobs," WMC commented, but insisted there are plenty of jobs for all—jockeys, race track officials, mutual operators, stablemen, clerks and others—In essential jobs in critical war industries.
