League to Have
Only Six Clubs
A meeting the East Texas League
•was held at Gilmer Tuesday, which
brought about a radical change in the
membership of the organization, as it
reduced the number of cluhs from
eight to six. ThB)silphur Springs
club gave notice Sunday night of its
withdrawal, but President Crosby
has been keeping the club in the run-
ning since that time, as it was on
the road, and the team in the town
where it was playing was responsi-
ble for the expenses. The action of
the Sulphur Springs club was the oc-
casion for the meeting, as some
means had to be devised to keep the
League in running order. Efforts
were made to transfer the franchise
to another town, but it is too late in
the season for any other place to warn
to lake over a club.
After considerable discussion, it
was decided to cut the circuit from
eight t&\six clubs, and consolidate the
Mt. Pleasant and Longview clubs, as
these towns are the smallest left in
the circuit, and had more financial
troubles than the others.
After the consolidation was agreed
on, the combination was given the
choice of the Sulphur Springs play-
ers, and in this way one of the
strongest teams in the circuit can be
built up, as there are some good play-
ers on all these teams, and a win-
ning combination can be assembled.
The Cats 1 nvc one of the best hitting
clubs in the League at present, being
second in batting percentage, and
with the addition of the best pitch'-
ers of Sulphur Springs and Longview
will make a strong team. There is
some talk that Willie Lee Crosby, now
with the Pacific Coast League, will
be given the management of the new
team, and be one of the catchers.
The only undesirable f igure of the
new combination is tha* the games at
home will be divided Mtween Mt.
Pleasant and Longview. This will
mean that half the games will be
played while on the road, and a fourth
in Mt. rieasant and a fourth in
Longview. President Crosby i.s now
working out a new schedule, which
will designate the playing dates.

The Texarkana Twins won a good
game from the Cats Tuesday after-
noon at Texarkana, when Craig’s sup-
pert went to pieces and four scores
were made. Craig purposcsly walked
two heavy hitters and 'when the nexl
man hit a grounder to Foss, , he boot-
ed it and allowed two runs for a
double play. In the same inning he
did the same thing and allowed two
more scores, losing the game in the
eighth inning 6 to 3. Irby starred in
the field for Mt, Pleasant, making
four sensational catches.
