July 4.—X report Is current in Wichita to the eWcct lliat Henry Ford and Pierre Samuel Du- J'ont, ot tho UuPont explosive manufacturing InteresiR of Delaware, have entered Into negotiations with the Skelly oil Company o'f Tulsa and tho Phillips Petroleum Company ot Bartlesville to purchase a routrolling interest in these two big independent oil concerns. H is said Henry Ford had representatives at Tulsa the last week in conference with Skeny officials. Mr. DuPont already is a director in the Phillips company. Borne credence is given the report anionic oil men here due to 'the fact that tile s'lielly Oil Company absorbed j all of Its subsidiaries the last week, putting them undor one organization. Due to tho i^sent state of the oil nioricet and with tho Industry said to tie in a state of over production, oil men say that this would be an opportune time for Mr. Ford to begin negotiations. It is also reported that several other largo independent concerns of the oi! industry are considering offers to purchase all or- part ot their companies "by still larger organizations. These include the Waite Phillips Company, which is reported to have received a hid of W> million dollars from tho Hoxana Petroleum Company for its producing, refining and distribution properties.

Ignorance wouldn't bo eo bad if it weren't so zealous.— AtcMsan Globe. Saliiia Writer Charges Faulty Management on Part of the Miller Skipper. C. Ti. Mooriey, sports writer for The Sallna Journa.1 telia without mincins words the reason for rent criticism of Bennle Meyer ant] why the tana there are sick of tile Miller pilot- Here is what he says: "Meyer gets sympathy from loop scribes for a raizing given him recently. One funny fellow sport scribbler, after spending much space telling managers, umpires, the league presidunt ami other towns how to conduct baseball, now advises us that a manarcv should bo allowed to handle his team without Interference or outside pressure. "Conditionally, •»« agree. But— "Salina funs are disgusted wish inexcusable, mismanagement. They have boon patient patronizing games and contributing generously through, throe half-seasons, only to see the home team flounder because of faults which almost any novice could have coiTcet- ed- The principal dissatisfaction is in seeing a hig pay given to big dubs. Last year the manager seemo-i to operate on the tlusiry that a star t-:t!ary made a star. Mcf'loskcy wa^ paying $.10<i a month to a catcher wit., lind natural ability but was too lazy u> tun out an infield hit. He paid something like $200 a month to a pitcher who seldom lasted five innings and always laughed at the joke on himself when he was pounded trom lliu box: and McCloskey clung to that hopeless irniit through almost the whole year. Other cases of the same kind existed and good bail players were available almost anywhere eager for chances to play for less money. "Almost half tho payroll this year lias bee-l given to tour players nnd thrc?o of them represented the weakest spots on the team. Another big salary goes to another piayor who is one of the Btrong members, but others in the league are playing Ju^t as good or better ball for pay^oport- ed to bo loss"It in none of the outsiders"business of course, how much is paid a player as long as the outsider Is not asked to pay it. Perhaps It is not even any of tho loyal fan's business, but it becomes some ot his concern when the management asks 1)1 m to donate. Then he" has a right to ask why the management can't pay the players, and if he. learns that some of thorn are getting twice his own earnings for playing punk baseball, he won't feel like he owes much. "We have a promised new manager now. Let's see the big pay go lo the hoys who contribute most to the team's battles. Drop Cms payroll pet system.
