(June 26) Mr. Justice J.V.H. Milvain of the Alberta Supreme Court has awarded Clark Rex, the former Edmonton playing manager, $1,179 and costs in an action against the Eskimo Baseball Association. Rex filed a statement of claim against the association, its president A.R. Edwards, office manager R.J. Sharp and general manager Lou Hiatt after he was dismissed from the club's employ last July.
He claimed $1.393 for wages, rent and an airplane fare from Los Angeles. Rex said he was dismissed without reasonable cause. The defendants charged he had behaved in a manner detrimental to the club and said they were fining him the balance of his salary.
