will be here at least until Monday
before starting on a vacation trip to
Florida. Wentz, bound by a promise
to Breadon not to discuss any phase
of the negotiations, declined ever to
admit the deal was off.
"I don't know just when I will
leave town," Wentz commented. "And
if, by chance, I should happen to
bump into Sam Breadon during the
next day or two, I certainly would
welcome a conversation with him. We
might even talk about baseball."
"No, I didn't say that the negotia-
tions can't be resumed," Breadon
said, replying to a query. He was
certain, however, that "negotiations
for the sale of the club are dropped
for an indefinite period."
Wentz made it clear that he was
not interested in buying any club ex-
cept the Cardinals.
