"Cracker Brown proposal" which
concerns the signing of a contract
between the player his parents
and a member of the faculty of
the affected college would be sure
to come in for a large share of
attention at the meeting in Omaha

uses and the signing of
every boy who shows promise a
sound business?" Kobs asked.
"What defense has organized ball

Simmons' slant was on the poser
of whether "there is any denying
that the farm system isn't
producing the desired results in
finished players in proportion

cost of developing?"
A Cry for "Help"
He went on to ask if organized
baseball didn't feel it could "take
a quantity of this 'throw-away mon

gram to helping college baseball
rather than pursue the destructive
and crippling policy" in effect Mon
Ohio State's Karow summed it
up this way:
"Organized baseball takes all
and gives nothing then criticizes
colleges because they don't do
more for baseball."
