FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1940 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE *IVB Passes Out 'With Passing Record Announcement Expected Today; Bert Niehoff Is| New Traveler Manager Build or Bust ATLANTA, Ga., Dec. G. (UP)— Iviiy Blades, veteran member of the St. Louis Cardinals organization, was expected-to be named manager of the New Orleans Peli- cims loriay, completing the lineup of pilots for the 194.1 Southern Association race. v Blados hud the unanimous backing of Cardinal officials, and President A. B. Freeman of the Pelicans was reported ready to give the final okay to his selection. Eludes, former Cardinal outfielder, was dismissed as St. Louis manager midway of last season. Bert NiehofJ, no stranger to the Southern League, where he has won pennants in three towns, returns to the loop as manager of the Little Rock Travelers. Niehoff's appointment was announced last night by Ray Winder of the Little Rock club. N'iehoff managed Jersey City, last season and had piloted Atlanta. Mobile' and Chattanooga in the Southern. Several Southern clubs were beginning to take shape as the result of deals and trades at the minor league meeting- here. The Birmingham Barons, Cincinnati Reds farm, apparently took the longest strides toward building for '41 by landing five players from their parent organization, including two promising pitchers. The hurlers were Charles (Red) Barrett, who toiled for the Reds' Indianapolis club last year, and Everett Hill, :L fireballer from Durham, which was operated as a Cincinnati franchise- until Brooklyn took it over Tuesday at the minors parley. In addition, the Barons got third baseman Don Lang from Indian- . apolis and outfielder-first baseman. Cyril Pfeiffer and second baseman John Zapor from Durham. Popular Ki Ki Cuyler's retention in the league was assured when President Joe Engel of the Chattanooga Lookouts announced the former Pittsburgh and Chicago outfielder would manage the club regardless of how it is operated next season. The Lookouts are more or less on the block as the result of a bad 1939 season .at the gate but Engel still controls the fan-owned club and apparently will see to Cuyler's retention before surrendering- it. .It is reported the Look- outs'will i-evert to their mortgage-' holder, the Washington Senators, in which event it is expected Engel will be kept in a front-office job as well as Cuyler continued as manager. The Nashville Vols obtained a hard-hitting first baseman-outfielder, Leslie Fleming, and cash from Buffalo in exchange for first- sacker Mickey Rocco and third- baseman Bob Boken. The cash was presumed to be plenty as both Rocco and Boken hit over .300 last year and Rocco led the league in" \ home runs while Boken was up front in runs batted in. The Vols acquired two rookies. Joe Lehan, 5, in fielder, and John Travis, pitcher, through their Southeastern league connection at Anniston. By way of stressing determina- Thc Knoxville Smokies, who fm- tion to acquire sufficient weight Davey O'Brien's final feat was completing 33 forward passes for Philadelphia Eagles in one game for all-time record. They were good for 316 yards, also a new mark. The Washington Redskins, champions of eastern division of National League, failed to intercept one oi O'Brien's 60 pitches, but won. 13-6. O'Brien, being congratulated by End Joe Carter, left, and Center Chuck Cherundolo. right, retires from football to join Federal Bureau of Investigation. Today's Sport Parade *j HENKY BftcLCHOKK LAS VEGAS. Nov., Dec. 6. — Does Nebraska University want isheri deep in the cellar last season, acquired a potent battery in pitcher Irving Stein and catcher Aubrey Epps. Stein, a right-hander was bought from Oklahoma City. Epps, no stranger to the Southern since he has played for Birmingham and Memphis, was bought from Jersey City. The Smokies had already obtained in fielder Glenn Stewart from the New York Giants and pitcher Woody Johnson from Nashville. After getting pitcher Ed Hcusser from Memphis and shorstop Flea to make him suitable opponent for Joe Louis next summer, Billy Conn, light-heavyweight champion, drinks milk between * rounds of workout. a real gambling quarterback at the helm of its team when it plays tanford in the Rose Bowl? Do the Cornhuskers want to perfect the mouse-trap game as it never has been perfected before? Do they want to learn the real intricacies of the spinner? If they do. then Major Biff Jones .should immediately, accept the invitation of the Las Vegas Cham- oer of Commerce lo make this town .1 stop en route to the Rose Bowl. In offering thr invitation the Chamber of Commerce, with be- .oming modesty, mentioned only .uc-h Las Vegas virtues as climate, training facilities, and proximity .o Pasadena. It didn't -mention the possible learning a football team .night gain from the gambling fa- .ilities of this town, which proudly advertises itself as the "last Iron- Tim is only my second trip to Las Vegas, but I'll bet you I know .nore about the spinner business ,han fellows who have been play- .ng football eight or 10 years.

If it works it can shake you right out into the cellar toward the payoff land, and if it fails there is no offside penalty. iToti jusi start off : from scratch. Now take that, mouse-trap play. It is a very important deal during ;he season. But, there is a little that is .operated here that will teach a fellow more about, the importance of a mouse and trap in 10 minutes than all the coaches ! 11HE STIll ON DIXIE Auburn Meets Villauova, Georgia Plays Miami, Florida Faces Texas ATLANTA, Ga..

Texas' victims were mighty Texas A. and M., Indiana. Oklahoma. Baylor. Colorado, Texas Christian and Arkansas. The Longhorns were defeated by Southern Method island Rice. However, don't sell the Gators short. Tom Leib, inaugurating the Notre Dame style of play in his first season, started slowly and Florida dropped early season. games to Mississippi State nnd Vilhmova but. came back strong to whip Maryland, Georgia and Georgia Tech and losa close ones to Tennessee and Auburn.

But there is this about it: A mouse sits in a little box that has a trap door. Beneath the mouse and the box is a wheel with 35 little openings in it. The wheel is spun. The mouse, is dropped through the door and eventually runs into one of Uic numbered openings. If he happens to select the opening you chose you are rewarded at 35 to 1. I hnve known .some contrary mice in my time- but the mouse who was playing the leading roie when 1 visited his .shop was tops. He approached thr openings of my choice a.s if t'ney had been baited with 10-pound torn cats. No quarterback could stay arounc Las Vegas long without developing a gambling instinct. Every other building houses a gaming place of one sort or another, and the citizens consider them as the citizens of other '.owns do the butcher .shop, the bakery, the dry goods emporium and the dentist's office.
