His 74" completions in 144 efforts have netted the Bearcats 1,090 yards. Thirteen of the passes have jjone for touchdowns. All of which is a right good record for a young fellow who actually prefers baseball to football. Wonder what he'd do 51 he really liked the game?

NEW YOflK, Oct. 26. reason why Branch Rickey Is the acknowledged No. 1 man In baseball trading Is that nearly every time fie peddles some surplus Brooklyn talent to another major league club, the deal calls for a. "messenger" to bring the money back. . . . Recent dickers have brought such players as Johnny Simmons, Bobby RhHkn, Jack Dempsey Cassinl, Don Thompson and Bill McCahan into the Dodger organization. And If you want to know what becomes oi the messengers, look at this: In 1946 Rickey sold Monle Bnsgall to Pittsburgh for S60000 and Jimmy Btoodworth; the next year Bloodworfh went to Cincinnati for $40.000 and money-toter Kermit Wnhl. . . . Recently Wahl was shipped to the Athletics for $2h.OOO and Bill McCahan. . . Bill was a right good pitcher for the A's.a couple of years ago, and If lie gets over his arm trouble. Rickey certainly will get some dough for him. I'iKsliin Picklns Purdue vs. Minnesota A refreshing draught That won't overload ya • Is a touchdown highball With Minne soda.
