[from an interview of Northwestern League Secretary Morton] “...is the agreement to sign as binding as thought it was a fully-signed contract?” was asked by the Enquirer correspondent. “Undoubtedly,” was the Secretary's reply. “I have been instructed by President Mills not to send out any more notices of agreements, but to announce them as contracts, for the reason, as Mr. Mills explained, that the Union clubs don't recognize agreements, and do recognize contracts; so that to give notice of agreements simply served to put the Union people on track of players whom they might want to engage. The same instructions have been given to the Secretaries of the National League and American Association, both of whom now announce agreements as 'notices of contract.
