Minors Holding Annual Conclave

Bob Brown Off To Minor Ball Meeting Friday
[Vancouver News-Herald, Nov. 29, 1945]
Bob Brown, in his official capacity as first vice-president of the newly-organized Western International Baseball League, and incidentally as boss of the Vancouver loop in the entry, will leave Friday for Columbia, O., and the National Asssociation baseball meeting Dec. 5, 6 and 7.
[unreadable]is major business will be to cement the tie-ups that most of the W.I.L. clubs have with various Coast League squads, who will be out in force to press their demands for major league status, and a boost in the draft price.
The local baseball magnate, who alternates with league president Bob Able as loop representative at the minor league meeting, expects to have league business well in hand by the time he returns.
