Manager, GM Picked for Chiefs

Wenatchee Entry into League to be Reality
WENATCHEE, Dec. 3 — Wenatchee's entry in the Western International baseball league began to take shape Monday, with announcement that Joe Brownlow, local newspaperman, has been chosen as president and general manager. The news came from Yubi Separovich, business manager of the Sacramento baseball association, which owns the Wenatchee franchise.
Brownlow is Sports Editor of the Wenatchee Daily World. He is president of the Wenatchee Junior Chamber of Commerce, which led the fight to bring professional baseball back to the apple capital. Wenatchee was a charter member of the WIL, dropping out in 1941, after five years' operation under four different owners.
Brownlow said Monday that announcement of a field manager for the "Chiefs" would be made later this week.
