Baseball and the Judiciary - The acceptance by Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis of the position of supreme arbiter of professional baseball, as recently announced, raises questions of good taste if not of propriety. It has been generally assumed that Judges of the District Court of the United States have their hands amply full if they do the work incumbent upon them in a way befitting a judge of the United States. It may well be true that the salary provided by the Government is grossly inadequate, but we dare say that no one has considered that the remedy for such condition was to be found through outside jobs paying additional compensation.
