THUMDAY, JANUARY 19, 1950 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH >AOITMtftTlfcu TedWaiiams Top Salaried Baseball Star By WILL GRlMSLKir NEW YOUK, Jan. 19 — (*> — The popular baseball argument— who draw* the biggest paycheck, Williams, DIMagglo or Feller? — won't have the old familiar ring this year. Ted Williams, the Boston Red Sox' flyhawk, Is almost sure to stand out by himself as the highest paid employe on the major league diamonds. Cleveland's Bob Feller, his onetime fireball now just lukewarm, took a reported $20,000 salary whack yesterday. Joe DiMagglo, the New York Yankees' sore-heeled question mark, Is said to face a $25,000 scissoring on his contract. This would remove these two baseball capitalists from the Ruth- Ian pay brackets, leaving Williams with the No. 1 Income tax headache. The Boston outfielder received in the neighborhood of $100,000 for his efforts last season, accord- Ing to reliable reports, and there Is no reason to believe he won't take an equally large gouge this time from Tom Yawkey's millions. He led the American League In almost every offensive department, losing the batting championships by the margin of a scratch single. He batted .3427 and yielded the crown to George Kell of Detroit, who hit .3429 when the figures were carried out an extra notch. Williams led In home runs, 43; runs scored, 150; total bases .368, and two-base hits, 39. These give him strong talking points when pay-talks begin. Meanwhile, Feller, the onetime ,$80,000-a-year mound wonder, won lost 14 games and was a shadow of his former nee Prices At St. Loui* ST.

The Yankees' amazing Di- Magglo was out half the year but came back to hit .346 and help lead his mates to the American League championship. However, his future remained clouded because of a capricious heel. The 31-year-old Feller inked his working papers yesterday after a conference with General Manager Hank Greenberg. Observers say he'll pitch this year for a straight $45,000 salary, no bonuses. DiMagglo, on best authority, earned between $90,000 and $100,000 last year. At the end of the season, friends quoted him as saying he expected a cut in 1950. To reports of a $25,000 slash for his star, General Manager George Weiss of the Yanks simply grinned and said, "It's one of those cases where I think it's best for all concerned to get together and talk things over." Still, baseball will have its quota of high-paid talent, with a half- dozen stars hitting and going over the $50,000 mark. Tommy Henrich, the Yankees' first "baseman-outfielder, signed yesterday for a figure placed at $40,000 to $50,OQO. The St. Louis Cardinals' great outfielder, Stan Musial, has another leg to go on his two-year contract at $50,000 per season. Cleveland's manager-shortstop, Lou Boudreau, is a $65,000-a-year man. Ralph Kiner, who banged 54 home runs for the Pittsburgh Pirates last year, is expected to demand around $50,000, and perhaps get it The Tigers' Kell, Brooklyn's Jackie Robinson and Cleveland's Bob Lemon are in line for nice salary boosts. The Philadelphia Phillies announced they had offered outfielder Del Ennis more than $20,000—the highest ever paid a Phillie. The salaries may not be as astronomical as usual, but the boys won't go hungry. Chicago. St Louis Grain Quotations Chieafo Cash Grata CHICAGO, Jan. 19, (f> — WHEAT — No. 2 mixed 2.11%.

Which is one way of saying that Sam Snead beat out Ben Hogan in the playoff for the Los Angeles Open title. He did it by four strokes, too. But remember back a little.

Denham said Lewis' demand that only union members get benefits from the operator-financed welfare fund is illegal, too. The whole trouble is that Lewis and the mine operators have failer to get together for nearly eighi months now on new contraci terms. The old agreement expired last July 1.

Some lawmakers, including Sen. Taft (R-Ohio), who have been urging President Truman to act under the Taft-Hartley law to halt the 3-day week because of lack of coal, expressed doubt that Denham can do the same thing under another section of the labor law. Taft said he doesn't think Congress intended to give anyone except the President the power to force men to go back to work without a contract. He said Denham might get an Injunction to require Lew^s to bargain with coal operators In good faith and stop de manding what they call illegal contract terms. "But I can't see that would be an effective means of getting full production of coal," Taft said. He urged again that Mr. Tjruman declare a national emergency and seek the emergency-type Injuno tion. Previous ' court actions of this type have resulted in heavy fines for Lewis and the union for not obeying injunction. CIO President PWUp Murray announced that "his organlasation "vigorously protests" Denham's action and said CIO lawyers will work with Lewis' United Mine Workers union legal staff in fighting the case. "In this attack upon the UMW through the instrumentality of the evil Taft-Hartley law," Murray said, "Denham is challenging the legitimate rights and interests of all organized labor." Denham acted on the premise that Lewis is making illegal de mands on the operators and using the limited work week and full strike tactics to "club the operators" into accepting union terms The NLRB counsel did not say the three-day week or full strike are illegal in themselves. He contended they are illegal, though when used to compel coal operators to sign an illegal contract. And he complained to the court that Lewis is using the production restrictions to Impose an illega union shop," "able and willing" and welfare fund clauses in his labor contracts.
