Of Story Told By James, Former
Detroit Pitcher
(By Associated Press)
CHCAL, Jan. 12.-The charge of
two baseball outcasts -- Charles
"Swede' Risberg and Arnold "Chick"
Gandil that the Chicago White Sox of4
1917 bought four games from the De-
troit Tigers so that the White Sox
would beat out Boston in the tightj
race for the American League pen-1
nant, was wiped off the baseball rec-
ord book today, with scarcely a blem-
ish left to show a trace of it.
Kenesaw Mountain Landis, base-j
ball's $65,000 a year commissioner,{
completely exonerated 21 accused
stars of the past and present. There
was no punishment of any kind. The
decision was a complete vindication.
The pool of $850 admittedly raised
by the White Sox went to pay theI
/'Detroit pitchers in reward for their
achievement for beating Boston,
closest rival of the White Sox for the
pennant in an important series and
not as a bribe to the Tigers for
"sloughing" a four game series to the
White Sox.
Arguments Proven Weak
The decision dissected the testi-

and Gandil, pointed out the weakness
of their statements, and Wound up by
saying that Commissioner Landis
could not find any proof in what they
Landis weighed the words of the
defending players against the two
outlaw accusers and decided to place
'his faith in the honesty of the ac-
cused, thus joining with them in call-j

"absolute lies."
In his blanket absolution the com-
missoner puled that Risberg and
Gandil had scarcely a reason for bas-
ing their framing charges. He cited
the fact that no money whatever was
mentioned when Gandil said he first
arranged the "sloughing" with Bill
