Must Wait One Whole Year,
For- Decision on Centracts
Argument in Supreme Court Will Come Up Next Wintt*
Washington, D. C„ Jan. 9.—Baser
ball players and managers must wait
a year or more before getting light
from the Supreme Court on the much
disputed question in major league cir

has been raised that contracts with
players are not enforcible by injunc

Tempting Offer Made to Manager I
Cockill and Tom Gray
Federal League mogus have invaded
the Tri-State and are putting forth
active efforts to land Manager George <
Cockill for the Baltimore cluh, the in- 1
ducement Ijeing a salary equal to four i
times that paid in the Tri-State. Offers :
have also been made to Thomas Gray,
of Williamsport, up the busi
ness management of the Baltimore
club. Tom Gray has turned down the
Manager Cockill has not given his
final answer, as he is anxious to ascer
tain the probability of the Federal in- j
vaslon holding out. if the Baltimore _
backers will sign up a three-year guar
antee George Cockill may get busy. A ,
dispatch from Williamsport says:
"A. .1. Aekley, the agent for Haiti
more, called on Mr. Gray, in company ;
with George Cockill, of l.ewisburg,
proposing at the same time that
Cockill take the position of manager l
of the Baltimore team. Cockill has j
been for two years manager of the i
Ilarrisburg Tri-State club and in lid
led that club to a triumphant victory,
winning the distinction of finishing in
second place in the 1912 race.
"Mr. Ackley's very earnest desire to
win both Cockill's and Gray's consent
to his offer for the Baltimore team is
based, without any question of doubt,
on the well-known baseball assocla- j
tions and intimate connections of these
two men with available baseball ma
terial which would make for the for
mation of a very strong Baltimore
team, could these 'availables' be in
duced to follow the lead of Messrs.
Cockill and Gray.
"While Cockill is reported as consid
ering the offer. Gray is quoted as hav
ing emphatically stated that he did not
favor an affiliation with any club with
an unprotected league."
