All 10 WIL Clubs Pledge to be Back

League To Be Back, Brown Says
VANCOUVER, Sept. 23 (UP)—The largest professional baseball circuit on the North American continent will probably be back in operation with all 10 teams next season.
Bob Brown, president of the class “A” Western International League, said Wednesday that all clubs under his jurisdiction had paid their protection fees to the National Association for the 1954 season.
“It looks as if all clubs will be back in view of this,” Brown said in an interview here.
“That is, as far as my office can ascertain.”
The next meeting of the league will be in Yakima, Wash., September 26, Brown said. He termed this meeting “the fall clearing meeting.” Purpose of the get-together is to close the season books and set the time and place of the annual meeting to be held sometime in November.
