Big Trades Expected Major League Officials Head For Chicago By JOE RE1CHLEIV COLUMBUS Ohio (AP) — Even before the minor league convention came to an official close today, a majority of the major league executives and field managers had departed for Chicago, where the club owners will hold their annual three- day meeting starting next Monday. Cassady, Beagle Holdovers On AP All-American Team really held Cnssady a runner this year. Schnelleiibnrger was an outstanding puss receiver and fine defender who always gave his best. He caught 20 passes for 287 yards and six touchdowns during the season An exceptional blocker and crashing defender, Beagle grabbed 30 passes for an academy mark to account for 451 yards and four touchdowns. By BOB HOOB1NG NEW YORK (AP) — Ohio State's Howard (Hopalong) Cassady heads one of the most versatile backfields ever selected on the Associated Press All America football team announced today. Cassady, a holdover choice along with. Navy end Ron Beagle, is joined by Ea*I Morrall of Michigan State ,Jim Swink of Texas Christian and Tommy McDonald of Oklahoma in the backfield. The Buckeyes owe their second straight Big Ten championship to Cassady, winner of the Heisman Memorial Trophy, who was the clinch runnei- of the year despite the special defenses set for him each week. He also can pass. Morrall, the nation's leading punter, ran the Spartans' intricate multiple offense with rare -genius. He was equally proficient as a runner, passer, blocker and was tei;rific on defense. McDonald, who with Swink gives the team two junior backs, is the hreakway runner who made the national champion Banners an awesome ground power. Swink was the most exciting runner of th<-> campaign, springing from virtual obscurity into the role of the top scorer t!25 points) and most dramatic distance gainer. The remainder *.•£ the team lists Howard Schnellenberger of Kentucky at end with Beagle. Frank D'Agoslino of Auburn and Paul Wiggin of Stanford at tackles, Jim Brown of UCLA and Pasquale (Pat) Biscegjia of Notre Dame at guards and Maryland's Bob Pellegrini at center. The team, selected on the recommendations of AP regional boards on the basis of the full season, avoids preseason ballyhoo and high pressure publicity campaigns. For that reason, players like Michigan end Ron Kramer, UCLA guard Hardiman Cureton, Notre Dame quarterback Paul Hortung. Auburn fullback Joe Childress and Mississippi State haflback Art Davis did not make the grade. That's not a reflection on the future potential of these fine play- comparative performances in the 1955 college season. Veteran football observers tabbed Brown, a tremendous lineman, not only superior to Cureton but also the key to Rose Bowl- bound UCLA's fine season. Or defense, he had no peers. Bisceglia got the nod over Iowa's great Calvin Jones for the other guard position because of the amazing' contribution the 25-year- old Navy veteran made to Irish success, "it took a major effort to j and girls continued their winning fashion a new forward wall this year for Notre Dame and the foundation was built on Btsceglia — de- fo/isive quarterback, right -ide linebacker and running guard on offense. Pellegrini made the play of the year in the Terps' 7-0 triumph over UCLA. As Bruin fullback Doug Peters got to the Maryland goal line, Pellegrini wrenched the ball from him and recovered to start his team toward victory.

Ex-Acrobat Rides Rich Double BALTIMORE W—An ex-acrobat was something of a two-ring circus at Pimtico yesterday, providing 14 two-dollar bettors with the thrill of a wagering lifetime.

Joy maker, winner by a neck, was a $1G4 to S3 bet, and Advice, which came home ahead by a length, paid $100.80 for a 32 ticket. The daily double payoff, third largest in Maryland pari-mutuel history, was probably a record for one rider. Sorenson, a Dane, came. to this country four years ago with an acrobatic troupe. The late AI Jensen, a fellow Dane who trained for Rapahannock Stable, offered him a job breaking yearlings at winter quarters in Aiken.S. C. He took it. He rode his first race in this country June 14, 1954 and is first winnter last fall. Read Courier News Classified Ads. Get new, improved PEAK -the modern anti-freeze!
