Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 10-21-2021

Kenna [New Mexico] Record, October 21, 1921:

Col. John H. Wigmore, dean of Northwestern University School of Law, advocates the establishment of a federal department of sport with a seat in the cabinet, and would like to see Judge Landis the first secretary of baseball.
...
“The sport should be declared a public service and be taken over by the state for management…This can be done by exercising the power of eminent domain.”

This is horrible, this idea.
