And the islands, bleak as they arc, Ace of Giant Pitching Staff Acquired by St Louis^Ball Club CHICAGO.— (/P) -The New York Giants Monday rilght announced that Pitchers Lcroy Parmalee nnd Allyn Stout, Outfielder Phil Wcintraub and Second Baseman Al Cuceinello have been traded to the St. Louis Cardinals tor Second Baseman Burgess White- Head, The announcement was made by Horace StOneham, son of Charles A. Stoneham, owner of the Giants, here for the opening of the annual major league meeting. In discussing details of the famous "mystery" deal made , by the Giants and Cardinals at the j minors league meetings in Dayton, Ohio, last month. I Parmelee, a big-right-hander, won j 14 games and lost 1Q,with New York i last season. Stout was^uscd chiefly as 1 a relief hiirler. Cuceinello. a youngster and a brother of Tony Cucc'frietjo of the Brooklyn Dodgers, served ;iiv utility roles. , ** Wcintraub, a Chicago youth who went up to the Giants from Nashville of the 'Southern Association, showed talent as a hitter, but was unable to make a regular place for himself in the New York outfield. He also sat in occasionally for Manager Bill Terry at j. first base. | Parmelee, one of the "big four" of I the Ginat hurling corps, won 10 vlc- ; lories against six defeats in 193-1, But I was hanicapped by a sore arm part of last season. I Whitehead, hailed as the likely suc- , cessor to Manager Frankie Frisch as I the Cardinals' regular second baseman, appears to be just what the Giants I need to repair their infield. Huahie i Critz, tiny veteran who starred for i New York for several years, was out of action a good share of last season i because of injuries and apparently I hadn't another full campaign in his. system. It was indicated that Wcintraub will either be used for trading purposes by the Cardinals or will be sent to one of the St. Louis "farms," possibly Columbus o flhc American Association. Stout already has served with the Cardinals, and later was with the Cincinnati Reds before going to the Giants. Rumors drove Connie Mack into ^Society Heiress Quits Convent (Continued from page one) but they don't know what to do with it. There are no graves on Jarvis Island—where'the crew of the Amaranth :went, there ;ardvno graves. Baker; Island,' a Jittlt spot 1000 miles west o£ Jarvis, has: had its days of anguish, top., ; 'Guano ." diggers lived there .from 1857 ; ;to' 1879, A workman kno>vn only .as'N. E.

I cry at the ocean with mixed emotions . . . the sea is the haunt of murderous sharks . . .the surf rages violently from November to March." And another time: "... the air above the island is alive with birds which swarm like the flies of Egypt's plague. Their discordant dim echoes in your ears day and night. The trade winds are the breath of life. When they stop,-the spirit sinks. The shore and the sea become dazzling mirrors that torture the sense of sight." A Tough Landing A ledge of coral rock, just under the water, extends out from the shores of'the island, clear around, for about 500 feet. Then the ocean comes to a sudden drop.so straight and so deep that ships' anchors can't icven find bottom. The great swells of the Pacific roll up over the reefs, and the water roars and leaps so at times it is impossible to take a boat through it. What good, you might ask, would such a place as this be for an airplane landing base? That question was put tc the the men of the Bureau of Air Commerce, and they answered it this way: "You couldn't of course, lake a seaplane through the surf and up to the beach even in good weather. But for a couple of thousand dollars, we could build a pier from the shore out beyond the reef. Planes could be brought up to the end of the pier in ||, , - *IUIIIW4£> Wll/Vb WLylllllw IIICIVI^ Illvv cculd be made aeronautical outposts. hiding tonight.

Baker , Island has seen some sad .EQe.,;4nstancg,:M,.the • <,tittie-.-ari American and a Hawaiian were living on the island alone in the '60s; during; a' lull,in the guano digging. One day they saw a Chinese junk r.i't at seo, headed right for the reef. Ihe two men ran to the beach and. shouting and waving, pointed out the channel which led through the reef. The Chinese at the tiller, laying flat on the deck, understood, and steered the junk safely through. , The island inhabitants went on board. They found the Chinese at the' wheel a living skeleton. Below decks, they found another Chinese, unconscious. He was finally revived to j tell what had happened. A hurricane off the coast of China had dismasted the ship, blown is far cut to sea, and left it drifting.. .There were nine men aboard. They drifted for five months. Seven of the nine died of thirst. There was plenty of food, but no \vater. They drifted for 4500 miles.- They' had passed within shouting distance of ships, but no one paid any attention. Both probably would have been dead j in another 24 hours, if they hadn't drifted into Baker Island. In 1863 a Japanese junk drifted past Baker. Tho guano diggers went out and found every man on board dead. There arc 18 graves on Baker Island. The weather has washed away all inscriptions. Some of the dead, probably, were guano diggers. Maybe some were sailors who died at sea, and were brought ashore for burial. On the Equator The three islands arc right on the equator. Consequqcntly, you would imagine they would be very hot. Especially inco the land is flat and low, and 'here is no vegetation except scratchy brcwn weeds. Well, they are very hot. But it's .a funny kind of heat. In the daytime, the temperature rarely goes above 80. Yet the sun is so bright the boys go naked, except (or a sarong around the middle and they arc burned almost black. They have to wear colored goggles, Tho tropic sun, reflecting on the dazzling white sand, would ruin their eyes. But at night, brrrr The tempera- lure seldom goes below 70, yet it is very cold, and the boys sleep under three heavy woolen blanK<Ms. There is a constant wind during the day of about 14 miles an hour. It's cool enough if you can just get in the shade, but the only shade is it tent roof. At night the wind dies down. There are no mosquitoes and no snakes, and no bedbugs—yet. But two oi the islands, Baker and Howland, arc ilivo with rats. Big ones, six inches long. The boys have tacked tin around the table legs, to the rats can't crawl up. Jarvis Island has no rats. All the islands have crabs. 1hc coconut crabs look like lobsters, and are mighty fine eating. Hermit crabs bck like snails, arc ubout as big as a baseball, and roum all around the camp, euting crumbs. They are really nice housekeepers, the boys say. As flat and as small as the islands are, there i.s no reason to believe that they have ever been washed completely over by water. That would be a pretty pass, for the cutter to go back and find everything gone. But there's not much danger ot that. There is also no evidence that there have ever been any serious hurricanes on the islands. But if one should port was that he had completed the sale of Jimmy Foxx, Eric McNair, Roger Cramer and Johnny Marcum to the. Boston Red Sox for ?300,000, and Pitcher Jim Welch.

Honorary Degree (liven Roosevelt Notre Dame Praises "tn- viricibre Courage 1 ' of the President SOUTtt BEND, Jnd.—(/P)—President Roosevelt \vns prnised for "invincible courage" Monday ns Notre Dnmc University conferred an honorary degree upon^ him. The university citation said: "On a lender nnd a ruler who, with fnith nnd invincible courage when other brave men were faltering, took the reins of government at a crisis which threatened with collapse nnd chaos the civilization and institutions of our country and the rest of the world; nnd who is now by achievement even more than by official position the first citizen of our republic —the Honorable Franklin Delano i Roosevelt, president of the United I States." For Carlos Pcnn Homulo, cciitor of Manila, P.
