Congressman Seeks Measures to Protect New Baseball League
NEW YORK, Oct. 15--Rep. Emanuel Celler (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, today criticized National and American League owners in their attitude toward a third major baseball league and said he planned to push anti-trust legislation in the next session of Congress.
Celler said, "This new Continental League is going to die aborning unless they get some help."
The Continental League was organized recently with five founding cities--New York, Houston, Denver, Toronto and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Three other cities are to be selected.
