Latest story is that Charlie Grimm will be made director of the Cubs' farm system, \vhich hasn't produced much under Jack Sheehan, and that Red Smith Is out as "advance man" In the trading market. . . . Only evidence so far Is that Dene lowing, an experienced farm man, was suddenly moved into Chicago as Grimm's assistant. . . . IndienMon ot how. the various clubs regard the tight pennant race was that the Yankees sent'three men. including stadium superintendent Charlie McManus. to yesterday's World Scries meeting while the others had only one apiece. Detroit, also invited, declined with thanks. Yer Out Harry Geisel, former American League umpire who thought * had retired from the arbitration business several years ago, now finds he didn't. . . . Qov. Henry F. Schricker of Indiana recently named Geisel as a member of the state board of arbitration to settle dispute between a union and a bus company. . . . Geisel probably will be the picture of frustration if he finds somebody else calling strikes.
