November 3 1960- Widow of Arnold Johnson is reluctant to part with controlling interest. Mrs. Warren W. Hume widow of the late Arnold Johnson, today blocked, at least temporarily a bid by Kansas City interests to purchase the Athletics by indicating she had changed her mind about selling the fifty two per cent of the stock she inherited in the baseball club. Ernest Mehl The Kansas City Times Sports Editor I found what was left of this article in the crawlspace of a house We've been working at on the corner of 23rd and College, which is more or less a stones throw from 22nd and Brooklyn where Municipal Stadium use to live. I've been involved in quite a few shenannigans around here and have had a healthy serving of community service hours hammered down upon myself from the firm yet fair hands of Judge Franco in the Kansas City Municipal Courthouse. On one of those endeavors with the KC parks and recs truck, shoveling up piles of hennesy bottles and colt 45 cans at Montgall park, I got burnt out and took the rest of the afternoon off. I remember walking down 22nd street and ran into a commemorative plaque on old Municipal Stadium, and reading some pretty good information on it about milestone dates and key players that played there and such. I figured maybe some of you who remember could fill me on where the rest of this arcticle that was chewed into a rat nest left off. I know from some the older guys I've ran into around the city that Charlie O eventually went on to buy the team and he was a rat bastard that traded all of our players to the yankees for nothing and really never gave a shit about the team remaining in KC. So what if Mrs. Hume never sold the A'S to Charlie O? What if say a Hall a Bloch or a Hunt would of bought the team would they of stayed in Kansas City?
