WIL January Meeting

W.I.L. Moguls Set '51 Plans
TACOMA, Jan. 13 — Western International baseball league directors went ahead with plans to operate next season at their meeting here Saturday but in view of the international situation decided to wipe the "rookie" rule off the books. This required that each team carry at least one comparatively inexperienced player.
The directors also discussed possibility of air travel and there were indications that the teams might make all trips by airplanes. Decision, however, was delayed.
The schedule was ordered entirely re-drawn but the opening and closing dates, April 20 and Labor day were retained.
There was considerable discussion of division of gate receipts and it was decided that the present 60-40 split will be retained although some exceptions in the case of Victoria may be made.
