is a certainty that he will try to
swing some player deals that may
shake the Sox out of their lethargy.
Fonseca is a mild player, both on
and off the field, and has- his own
ideas of how a major league team
should be run. He has served in
the majors under such men as Pat
Moran and Jack Hendricks at Cin-

Conference Head Indicates That
Two Leading Teams Will
Meet in Charity Game.
CHICAGO, Oct. 13. -- (P) - Any
post-season charity football games
played by the Western conference
teams this season, will be strictly
conference games.
Following a flood of suggestions
and requests for charity games with
non-conference teams, Major John
L. Griffith, Big Ten commssioner
of athletics, today explained the
league's stand as outlined by the
faculty committee on athletics.
Major Griffith said the confer-
ence had decided to suspend its
rule limiting teams to eight games
each season, to make possible char-
ity contests between Big Ten teams
on November 28. When this was
announced last week, many re-
quests were sent to his office ask-
ing that the season be-extended as
much as four weeks to play games
with non-conference teams in all
sections of the country.
The committee, he said, agreed
only to extend the length of the
season one week, and specifically
limited the post season games to
such Big Ten teams as are available
at that time.
It has been indicated that should
two teams go through the season
undefeated, they would be matched
for a title game on November 28,
and that other games might be
arranged between teams of the
same comparative strength.
