NEW YORK ffcv. 14 - (UPIl
- Rep. Emanuel Celler D-N.Y.
warned organised baseball today
to accept e proposed third major
league as “fret and equal" but
baseball men stressed "orderly
expansion" at opposed to the
formation of an outlaw circuit
"Organised baseball must ac-
cept any new league or be
branded a monopoly under fed-
eral anti-trust laws," said Celler
after a New York City baseball
committee announced plans to
form a third major league "In-
side or outside" the current
structure of organized baseball.
"I applaud such action although
I expect teams like the New
York Yankees will attempt to
veto the plan.”
Baseball officials, from Com-
missioner Ford Frick to execu-
tives of teams mentioned in the
possible new league, however,
sought to head off a "war” such
as rocked baseball when the Fed-
eral League was formed in 1914
and plagued pro football when
the All America Conference was
created in opposition to the Na-
tional Football League in 1946.
