Anti-Draft Leagues Appear To BeWeakening In Their Attitude Toward Majors MAY DECLARE PEACE AT CHICAGO MEETING Minor Circuits Have Been Taught That All Is Not Peaches and Cream Since Majors Put the Screws on Them as Measure of Retaliation Landis Stands Aloof. BY HARRY BULLION. SECRETLY the major league may wish to restore the draft in the five circuits that refused to subscribe to it when the major-minor agreement went into effect in January, 1921, still they, do not, appear in a mood to make the slightest advances. Nobody will deny that the strained relations between the big fellows and the small fry have had a damaging effect on the best interests of the game in its various scopes. The majors could profit immensely through a more congenial working basis with the minors, and in turn the little leagues would share in the success. But the majors, weeping recent- ment over what they describe as unfair demands by the minors, are accused by the minors of being unfair. There the matter stands, each faction determined to yield nothing to the other, but apparently both are willing to compromise. ln to the Magnates. Whether tb situation clarifies during th coming; meetings of the magnates, big and little. In Chicago this month. Is another question, however. Judge Landis. who, upon his appointment an supreme dictator' In baseball, declared he would make it hie business to make the American association, I'acltlo Coast league. International league. Three Ky league and the Western league to alter their anti-draft attitude, seems to have failed. One year ago, when the minors held their annual meeting In Louisville, Ky., Landla endeavored to effect a reconciliation between the belligerent parllea, but he aid not win his point. Overture might be made by one aide or the other during the coming meeting, though not under the head of official business, as Landis, empowered to call a Joint meeting ot the majors and minors, has gone on record as stating that he sees no necessity lor one. Both Btdea Will Salter. If the minors stand their ground to the end of refusing to modify their terms upon which they will resume business relations with the majors they, as well us the big Jul lows, muet suffer In the future as they have In the past, particularly me most recent season. It is the contention of the small leagues that the majors cannot recruit their ranks without their help, while the majors, feeling. perhaps correctly, that tha minors, sooner or later, must declare an end to the war to save their finances, cannot hold out much longer The small fry lost considerable money last season by virtue of their refusal to accept players on option from tho majors and the measures of retain tlon adopted by the major circuits that refused to purchase from their common, enemy liasing one's opinion of the breach between tho anti-draft leagues and trie majors on, cold tacts, tha bur-tlen of the .hliima for existing conditions must go siiuarely on the American and National leagues, whose owners. In apparent mad desire to outbid each other for players of desirable, merit, clothed- the bush league club owners with gold. itnlled In Wealth Then. . The minors felt, and quit naturally, too, that It was more, profitable for them to restrict the privileges of the draft whau there were so many crasy men in the majors willing to separate themselves from fortunes for players, who, under the 1 conditions of the selective draft principles, would bring merely the urn stipulated In the agreement, graded, of course, In accordance with the classification of the circuits from which the athletes were chosen. The more the majors bought from the market tho more the minors became convinced that the National and American loops would throw all caution away and pay outrageous sums for untried material. But the majors retaliated with so much weight that the minors, realizing that they overplayed their hand, must seek a settlement some way, though as yet no definite move has been started to that end. Other Feeding Grounds. There are other leagues aside from the anti-draft olroults from which the ma-Jors can recruit their ranks. n.ot the equal of the five Outside the fold, of course, but pro lific enough to provide talent of good quality, even If It does require more thorough development. One year of this state of affairs has, no doubt, altered the entire viewpoint of the anti-draft leagues They have players to sell, as usual, but nobody In the market to buy them. It's a restriction on the advancement of young ball players, and therefore they, rather than the club owners, suffer. It Is a matter of record ffiAt f,u- If any, minor league clubs meet ex- ' penscs of conducting their business out of gate receipts alone.
