(UP)— The hnrd-henrlcd Yankees finally have relented and let u ball plnyei; go lo one ol their rivals, Rivals may be the wrong word, bin anyway (he Yanks traded Outfielder Joe Gallagher lo the St. Louis Browns for Inflelder Hoy Hughes and cash, believed lo be as much us $25,000. Gallagher Is a real prospect and i was sought by half u dozen major league clubs despite the fact that I the Yanks hud recently optioned him la their Newark farm club. Gallagher played 15 games with the Yanks nnd hit only .24'!. Last year with Kansas City he hit .343. Biff and fust, Gallagher lias everything to make a major league star. The other night playing with Newark he scored from second on an outfield fly, which gives an idea how he can turn on Ihc steam. When the Yanks had to cut down because of their abundance of outllelders, Gallagher was dispatched lo Newark. He Ihrcalencd lo quit baseball before going lo Newark but finally relented. The Drowns have been successful In their previous dealings with the Yaiiks. Myrll Hoag, sent lo SI. Louis by the Yanks last winter, is billing .352 and George McQliinn, who went there from Newark two years ago, is clubbing .358. The Yanks would like very much Indeed to have AIcQiiinii first-basing for them right now. Despite the Yanks' nine-game cad, the campaign to knock down the world champions is gaining nomcntum. The Indians who have kept Bob Feller, Ihe American League's Nc. 1 pitcher, out of the past two tcrles against the Yanks moved Into town today and had Feller all ready to open against Ihc Bronx Bombers. Feller was due Lo face Monlc Pearson, one-time Indian who won his first five games before losing. Oscar Vllt, Indian boss, has not given up hope of getting his club up into the thick o! the race. Johnny Allen's two-hitter in his last start and the revival of the hilling form of Jeff Heath nnd Ben Chapr man have revived the Indians' spirit. ' ' , '; Cleveland is still hoping lo swing a deal before the Thursday midi night trading deadline. The man they want is Inflelder Don Heftner, but up to now the Browns have asked plenty. With Gallagher on deck, the Browns may take Hcffncr off the block altogether.

The Senators are trying lo land fludy York from the Tigers In exchange for Cecil Travis, pitcher. If the Tigers get they'll be over-burdened inflelders and might deal nogell or Kress to the Indians. Several National League clubs arc negotiating for last-mlnule deals. The Reds want a relief pilcher, the Giants an Inflelder, the Dodgers an outfielder and Die Piralcs a pilcher. There is some possibility of the Reds' landing Max Butcher from the Phillies. With Burgess Wliilehead nursing n bad finger Injury, the Glnnls nre desperate for another inflelder. Bill Terry fulled in an effort to pry the Pirates loose from Lee Hundley or I'cp Young. Larry MacPhail Is scouring the country for an outfielder and rumor hns it that he's trying to limd Vince D!Mag§-io, who's DlUliig .328 in 41 games for t , rol( , , Mncbetll wltch Pml . the Vuiite' Kansas City farm club. {|lc mvlllolomcw as c , lplain ' Kld(1> or Oliver Hardy as Tar/Jin of Ihc Apes, swinging lightly from bough lo bough? No, I daiesay you can't. But I'll lell you this—Shirley, Freddie and Oliver look a lot more like the characters nnmcd than Sydney Wooderson of England does the world's greatest mile runner. Syd- icy had the sporlswrilcrs rubbing their eyes and pinching themselves when lie arrived here on his way lo Princeton, where he will compete In the swank invitation track meet on Saturday. The record book, which seldom ics, hns it down in black and while that Sydney hns run the mile In 4:OG.4 for one world mark, the half mile In 1:49.2 for nn- other, and the 800 meters in 1:48.4 for a third. You may not be from Missouri, or anywhere near it but one peek at Sydney and you'd question the marks until you stuv him run and clocked him with your own timepiece. "I've seen lots of athletes who didn't look the part, but none to compare with Sydney. Weighing only 120 pounds, and standing a scarce five feet six inches, he gives the impression of a' chap who couldn't get Uirough one round of strenuous parches! without a minute or two in the oxygen tent. To see him pecking shyly through heavy rimmed trotoise shell glosses, to hear him talking in a soft voice, you'd swear he wasn't even strong enough to be a chess champion, much less run a Wistcr- ig mile. But.he must be able to boil it, bis little lawyer who wears the ilks of the Blackheath Harriers of London. He has beaten every one •ho has had a go at him, includ- ig Jack Lovelock, the New Zeal- ndcr who was good enough to 'hip the world in the 1500-meter nn in the last Olympics. More im- lortant, lie has beaten the clock, :nd the clock is a foe that takes lot of beating. BY . ARTKRENZ 3i-astic Sliakeups Fail To Bring Atlanta Club Out Of Slump liu United Press The furrows of worry deepened n the brow of Manager Paul nicliards today while his Atlanta Crackers continued to lose despite drastic personnel changes designed to bring the club its fourth South- em Association flag in live years. Four fielding positions and several pitching posts have been taken over by new • faces since the start of the .season and still the Crackers are no higher than fourth place, and only a gnme removed from the filth place Birmingham Barons at Ural. , Richard's latest move, the acquisition of Pitcher Jennings Foin- dexter, a red-hot (linger in this league two seasons ngo, didn't remedy matters in Atlanta last night when the Knoxville Smokies made it two straight over the Crackers by a scorn of C to 2. ... Poindester went great guns for live Innings, but blew up in the sixth when the potent Smokies blasted him nnd two successors for four runs. Dep Lambert and Pete 1 Wallory of the Smokle hurling corps allowed the Crackers only six hits lo give the Kuoxville club its ninth win in 13 starts against the Crackers this year. At Chattanooga, It was demonstrated the League-Leading Lookouts can be beaten once, but hardly twice in one night. Tile Nashville Vois took the opener of a double-header 5 to 1 and seemed we|l : "on their way to sweeping .tli'e bargain bill when/, the Lookouts rallied for four runs in the fifth Inning and a 7 to 4 victory. Al Baker let the Lookouts down with three scattered hits in the opener while Cal Chapmtm continued his deadly slugging with four for four, two of them doubles.

Apparently Wooderson, unlike our best miler, Johnstown, is a. mudder, and can go in the goo Just as well as he can in a lightning track. Possessed of amazing stamina, Wooderson gets his fast times wl.h an almost incredible "kick" toward the finish of a race. He can, if necessary, run the last quarter of the mile in good 440-yard time. His style is not a particularly pretty one, but he has a long, lop- Ing stride which covers a tremendous stretch ol ground. Wooderson will run over one ot the fastest tracks in the work! at Princeton. The old Nassau strip was built for speed, and is undoubtedly better suited to record runs than anyi the Englishman has covered in this country. But what doubtful if the American entrants in the mile will be able to carry Sydney along. Cunningham is over the Hill, San Rornani never quite reached greatness as a miler, and no one knows tlie full capabilities of Chuck Fenski and Blalnu Rideout. My guess, however, is thai Penske will provide Wooderson with his chief opposition. The last time he showed his about his opposition?
