The Artist Who Blazed The Road

Fred Dunlap has played and will probably continue to play good ball for years to come, but when his fame as a player has been forgotten he will be remembered as the artist who blazed the road to high salaries, and who never got the short end of a deal, even when dickering with men skilled in financiering. When he made a contract he always had a lawyer draw it up in proper air-tight shape, and we never heard of one of them being set aside as "vague and indefinite."
