PAGE fOUK BLTTHEV1LLE (ARRJ COURIER NEWS THURSDAY/ DECEMBER 5, ;i Today's Sport Parade to Clinch Vardon Tronhv Giants, Pirates, Cardinals Mentioned In Trade Deals Rumors ATLANTA, Ga., Dec. 5. (UP)— More activity as expected on the major league trading marts today as the minor league convention moved into its second day. Reactions to the Reds-Cubs and Dodgers-Cardinals deals-of yesterday furnished many conflicting opinions, among baseball's heavy thinkers but the majority inclined toward the belief that other trades were on the fire. The Giants. Pirates and, cardinals were the National League' clubs most frequently mentioned.'in. the, trade rumors. Action also as' expected In the American League with the Boston Red- Sox apparently the 'most anxious to barter..Manager Joe Cronin of the Red Sox came close to putting over a deal with the Chicago SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 5. (UP) —Notes by a man .who has just driven 750 miles without letting a car pass him, but who was fool enough- to pass two police cars: If I don't get a press box ticket for the Notre Dame-Southern Calif onua 'game when I arrive hi Los Angeles, I'll surely haye enough speed tickets to get me into the best jail so I can listen to the game over the radio. If I am ever forced by admiring friends to run £or public oi'fice it will be solely on a platform that demands all police cars be painted yellow for daytime, luminous for night time and be equipped with loud-speakers which constantly warn: "Cheese it, the cops!" But enough of law and order, let's lake this next curve on two wheels and get on to a lew sports items. Tip to Clark Shaughnessy and his Stanford team: Tnere is one play you need not, build a defense against in preparing for Nebraska in the Rose Bowl. That is the fake placement Jack. Biff Jones, Nebraska coach, got enough of. that when applecart upset at. the last moment. Cronin offered outfielder Doc Cramer, a left-handed hitter, to the- White Sox for outfielder Mike Kreevich, a right-handed hitter, and shook hands with Jimmy Dykes, White Sox manager, over the deal only to have the whole thins called off later by Harry Grabiner, White Sox vice president. There is" a slight chance that the "'deal, may be revived at the major league meeting next week in Chicago. Cramer, who is 34. hit .302 last season and tied with Rip Radcliff and Barney McCosky for the league lead in the" most hits, each with 200. Kreevich, who is 30, hit .268 last season, an off year for him. Most critics believe that the Reds, Dodgers and Cubs all helped themselves in yesterday's swapping The Reds, in giving up shortstop Billy Myers to the Cubs, landec outfieldei-. Jimmy .Gleeson.. shortstop Bobby Mattick and another playei to be" named by May 1. In giving up Myers, the Reds admitted tha they are willing to go along with Eddie- Joost at short next season -Joost had just atoul won the shortstop job from Myers last season, and actually outhit Myers. Gleeson, who was the National League's sixth best hitter last season with. a mark of .313, is a good all-round ball player. And he helps the Reds where they'need help most—in the outfield and at the plate. "Although seme factions contend that the Reds got all the better of the Cubs 1 deal, Jimmy Wilson, Cubs', pilot, and big. Paul Derringer, who is circulating here, don't think so. Wilson, analyzing the Cubs' shortstop post as the club's real weakness." thinks that he solved that problem without weakening his-'own" ciub. •was his self-appointed assistant. Tne fake placement kick was the one play Huey understood and he loved it—not only loved it, but demanded that Biff use it two or hree times a game. Biff didn't follow orders, but he got so sick of hearing about it that ie wouldn't use it, even to win a nowl game. The .next time you see Biff ask him to tell you how the delta dictator, flanked by two bodyguards, came in the L. S. U. dressing room between the halves . of a »ame and demanded to talk to the Team. He didn't get to talk, but he got Biff's resignation—and pronto. Speaking of bowl games, I sorta envy those boys who'll draw the assignment to cover the Cotton clothes detectives to watch the meters henceforth. In October alone, the city collected 1,682 slug* Manila Scores Triple Cage Win Over Dell MANILA, Ark., Dec. 5.—The Manila Lions opened their basketball season here last night with a packed gymnasium arid won a triple victory over the Dell high school. The junior boys defeated Dell juniors 19 to 8 and. the senior boys trounced the visiting five by the •unaway- score of 35 to 10. Both teams seemed lost and the Manila "Howed olenty of rough edges but Coach. Morris expects to shave aiem aown for next week's engagement. The senior girls defeated the Dell sextet 18' to 12 with the battle hard fought but Manila appeared just a shade better than the visitors in this encounter. John Osbome is coach of the local girls team. i Qnder the direction of Miss Carolyn Haley, dramatics instructor ot the high school, a inarch drill and kiddie band parade was conducted during the half of the girls and senior boys game. The first and second graders marched lo the center of the gymnasium and formed the letters U. S. A. and sang "God Bless America." School Marks "Hot Air" Day VINITA, Okla. iOP)—Vinita high school observed "hot air" day. It was devoted to the beginning of the political campaigns of rival candidates for class offices. Campaign managers made their bids for votes at an assembly program. •9Atj -js-tu u| using 03 u^J UUSOR Pinoi[« PJBAXU uuq pinoAV 'sqinod CLG W!^ puooos 'psaug ures -K>J toopiA V Ult^S si )Ba l '0*61 "t siuauiBuinoi .io[«m anoj jo asutiiM 'UBSOH maifls. uocto ittiurre OOO'OIS u[ A^do.r) IBUOUISH uopa*A. irauip <n pap3dx3. si inq 'aiai-i uanoj jo 3no gamag sr tregoH and they aren't.

I came from a state where hospitality Is supposed to grow on trees, but the city of Dallas makes all other hospitality seem like a punch on. the nose. When you stare naming the out- standing'sports performers of 1940 How are you going to keep the name of Ace- Parker from leading •the list 1 ? He not only fitted himself into a new system under a new coach with the Brooklyn Dodgers but he proved himself the outstanding pro football player of the year. And he did it with a fractured ankle! The two games I saw him play he was equipped with a steel brace that a convict trying to get home for Christmas, couldn't have: walked with.

Derringer, the.Reds' World Series pitching hero, was emphatic in saying- that he thinks the Cubs helped themselves: "I wouldn't, attempt- to second guess Bill McKechnie on anything he did," Derringer said, "but I believe it's, worth noting that no ball club could win 42 games by one run ,as" the Reds did last, season with a clown at shortstop."
