Tells Players to Sign
New York. Jan. 10. —David L. Fultz,
president of the Baseball Players' Fra
ternity, back l'rom Cincinnati after a
satisfactory conference with the na
tional confmission regarding the play
ers' contracts, is notifying all mem
bers of the fraternity by mail that
they are now free to sign contracts.
"This method is 'necessary," said
Fultz, "for the players agreed origi
nally to pay no attention to orders
published in the newspapers. If I
had given out a statement that the
players were eligible to sign, many of
them probably would not have' ac
cepted the announcement as official.
Hence the notifications that are being
mailed as rapidly as possible."
