WASiiUNIL\TON, Jan. 26.-Picturing
ran Juhns';n as a "mighty sick man,
both in mind and body," Clark Griffith,
presdeont of the Washington baseball
club, declared upon his arival here
from Chicago that it was doubtful
whether the American league founder
ever would be able to resume the dui-
ties of league president, temporarily
assigned to Frank J. Navin of Detroit.
Detailing events which took place
in the meeting last Sunday in Chicago,
which resulted in Johnson's relief
from active control of the league's'
affairs, Mr. Griffith said as the parti-
cipants entered the conference room
"Mr. Johnson shook hands all around
rather perfunctorily and then ap-
parently drifted off into a coma."
In "the past, Griffith pointed out,
Johnson has been a "fighter" but at
Chicago he "seemed ,to pay no atten-
tion to what was going on or what
was said about him."a
"We previously had agreed," he con-
tinued, "to demand his resignaion as
American league president and when
our spokesman started his speech andt
saw Mr. Johnson practically helpless
in his chair, he suddenly sat down, not
having the heart to continue.
"We realized for the first time just
how ill our president was and re-
quested Mr. Killilea, his attorney, to
take him from the room while we held
a discussion. Mr. Johnson had to be
helped from his chair.nd then stumbl-
ed while on the way out saying
'neuritis,' as he was assisted to his
feet. This was the only thing he said
at the entire meeting, except to mum-
ble something only half audible on
one or two occasions.
"Naturally when we fully realized
that we were fighting a man as ill as
Mr. Johnson, we could not go through
with our original plans and decided
to simply put him on 'sick leave' in
the hope that a long rest would help
him. The matter then was taken up
with Commissioner Landis, who also
did not want to take any action which
might make President Johnson suffer
a relapse, and he agreed that our
vacation suggestion was a good one
and immediately cancelled the meet-
ing he had called for the following
President Griffith said there was lit-
Ale chance for Washington to get Tris
'peaker, but added he would be
"mighty glad to get him if Landis
declares him eligible as a player."
Kansas Aggies and Oklahoma uni-
versity are leading the Missouri 4al-
ley basketball league with three vic-
tories and no defeats. Missouri also
is in the lead by the statistics with
two wins and undefeated.
