Cleveland Protest Refusal Of Onslow to Leave Park Claim Sox Pilot Stayed Around After Being Ejected by Umpire • CLEVELAND, Ohio, May 15 UP . — The Cleveland Indians protested to President Will Harridge of the American League today that Chicago White Sox manager Jack Onslow violated the rules by remaining in his dugout yesterday after Umpire Bill Mc-Kinley had ejected him from the game. The Indians claim that Onslow remained in the dugout and runway for both games after McKinley ordered him out of the park for "profanity" in the first inning of the first game of a double-header. Ed Hurley, plate umpire in the second game, substantiated the charges made by manager Lou Boudreau. "Onslow hung around the dugout for four innings after he was ordered out," Hurley said. "Then he came back in civilian clothes in the second game." The Indians who lost the first game, 3 to 2, feel there is a possibility they may be awarded the game on forfeit or that a replay may be ordered. However, the umpires said that "most likely" Onslow will be fined by Harridge. Harridge declined to comment until he receives a full report from the umpires, but it was indicated that Onslow will be fined, the amount depending upon the severity of the officials report.
