CARDINALS REFUSE TITLE SHARED WITH POTTSVILLE
Detroit, Feb. 7 --The Chicago Cardinals were voted the league championship of 1925, but declined to accept the honor. With Pottsville, Pa., which had tied the Cardinals for first place honors, now out of the circuit, Chris O'Brien, head of the Chicago club, refused the title unanimously voted the Cardinals because he said he wanted a title clearly won on the field of play.
