FIVE STARS SENT FROM A'S SQUAD TO OTHER TEAMS leports of Sales Confirmed at League Conclaves as Other Trades Loom. By WILLIAM WEEKES CHICAGO, Dec. 13. /F--The blg- est baseball player deal of them all was in the bag today, and the annual major league meeting set- led down to. regular business and esscr swaps and sales. Connie Mack had disposed, as had jeen reported he would, if Lefty ;rove, Rube WaVberg, Mickey Cochrane, George Earnshaw and Max Bishop, getting in return, around 5300,000 in cash, and Pitcher Bob {line and Infielder Harold Warster from the Boston Red Sox, and Catcher Charlie Berry from the Chicago White Sox. Boston Gets Three. Boston got Grove, Walberg and Bishop; Cochrane will manage Detroit, and Barnshaw. will pitch for Wcago. The White Sox lost a first string catcher when Berry went, but obtained in return Johnny Pa sek, a receiver who figured in the Detroit-Cochrane deal. The ( acquisition of Grove, Walberg and Bishop promises to make the Red Sox a real contender Cor the title next ear, while Detroit will be well heeled for catchers, with Cochrane and Ray Hayworth on the roster. If he pitches as he did In 1029, '30 and 31, Earnshaw will give Chicago something it has lacked for several years, a hurler who can be depended upon to win a lot o1 games. What Philadelphia, got oul of the deal besides the 5300,000, appears much less concrete. Overshadows Other News. Mack's announcement almos completely overshadowed o t n e r bright bits of news. Kenesaw'Moun tain Landis was 'signed to anothe: seven-year contract as basebal commissioner, and William Harridgi was given a five-year document as president, secretary and treasure of the American league. The huge deal by no means ended the bartering-. There were numerous other .negotiations on the fire. The Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis were reported to be tangled up in a sizeable piece of business, while the Cincinnati Reds were said to he after catcher Bob O'Farrell of the Cardinals as playing manager. Cleveland wanted Oscar Melillo. St. Louis Browns second baseman, but had little hope ol getting him as Manager Rogers Hornsby wanted Earl Avcrill at St. Louis' It's Tomorrow Again for Philadelphia's Diamond King Three Tilts in YLeague Cage Cards Trobabes, Y's Men in Wins; State Brand Takes Contest.

The Trobabes won by 28 to 14, the Y's Men by 28 to 24, and State Brand by 25 to 5 over the Brownies, Mier Wolf's and Ulens. Neighbors and Miller of the Junior college and Y's Men paced the scorers of the evening, with five jaskets each. Lee of State Brand led his team with four baskets and a free throw.

Braves Want Cuyler. The Boston Braves were believed angling for Kiki Cuyler, star outfielder of the Chicago Cuba, as reports of a deal by which the Cubs would trade Pitcher Pat Malone and Cuyler to Cincinnati for Chick Hafey fell through. However, it was rumored that Pitcher Malone is for sale or trade with St. Louis or Pittsburgh angling Cor him. The two leagues will meet in joint session tomorrow to tie into the itandard baseball and radio prob- 'ems. Tile latter question was ex- iccted to remain as it Is, with each ·lull making- its own decision as to whether there should be broadcasts of games. Both leagues agreed that a standard baseball should be adopted, but there was no indication of whether \t .should be the more Jumpish American league missile, or the less ively National league implement.

LANDIS STILL CHIEF CHICAGO. Dec. 13. (.T)--Kcne- ·;aw Mountain LancHs is still the big chief of organized baseball. And he probably will be for the rest of his life It he wants the job Stuffed in his pocket today was his third contract of seven years-with one month added--to run base ball as commissioner, an office created almost 14 years ago vhen baseball needed n stern hand to uide it over the churning waters of scandal. With his contract dfsap peared nil. rumors and report."? tha! he was to be disposed of or given a left hand release with a short con tract. A committee of three from each major league called on the white haired, 07-year-old commissione- last night and settled the contrac within the space of only two mln utes discussion. The old judg merelv asked the committee mem hers if they wanted him and then signed when they answered In th affirmative. The new contract was framed t run from Nov. 15, 1934 to Dec. 1 1943.

Elma took a high, scoring contest at Mitchell by a 43 :o 29 count, while Nora Spring. 1 ! staved off a last half rally from tho visiting Plymouth team to eke out a 20 to IS win. Marble Rock and Rockford broke into conference play by taking tilts from Colwell and Floyd by scores of 38 to 24 and 18 to 13 respectively. Mclntire continued its stride toward the top by taking its third straight game, and at the same time revenging its one setback by defeating Orchard at Mclntire 26 to 21. Carpenter fell from the top by failing to penetrate a tight defense at Colwell as it dropped itg first conference gome 6 to 12. Tcums Fare Poorly. Conference teams fared poorly in nonconference competition this past week. However, a previously unreported game between Carpenter and Northwood somewhat helps the record. To date, nonconference games reported show conference members even up with Seven wins to seven defeats. Nonconference gamea laat week resulted as follows: Alta Vista 20, Ionia 11; Decorah 19, Lime Springs 11; Mclntire 25, LeRoy 16; Rudd 11, Greene 31; Northwood IS, St. Ansgar 14; Carpenter IS, Northwood 17; (Nov. 28). Seven Games Carded, Seven conference games are on the menu this week. On Tuesday night, Floyd entertained the Orchard Ramblers for the second time this year as Orchard has no home floor, and Rudd played hosts to Marble Rock. This- was Rudd's first conference tilt. Marble Rock's vet- ran team wag the favorities over no inexperienced Rudd crew. On hursday evening, Colwell will at- empt to avenge an earlier defeat y Alta Vista on the home court, liere will be four games on Friday ight: Carpenter at Otranto, Floyd t Rudd, Nora Springs at Marble lock, and Mitchell at Mclntire. On basis of records to date, Carenter and Mclntire will be favorites n their tilts with the other two con- ests considered about even. A havy nonconference schedule or the week is also on tap: Thursay--Lime Springs at Crcsco, Fri,ay--Elma at Lawler, Kensett at 'lymouth, St. Ansgar at Mason City, Rockford at Oaage. Tivte Keeps Lead. Tate of Eima maintained his lead n the' conference scoring columns y chalking up 14 points against Mitchell to increase his total to 55. Vhlle hia record is short one game f being complete, Miller' of Mcln- ire held on to second place with 39 points.

In the first place, at the beginning, it was considered more or less a "sissy" game, and the boys sort of stayed away from it for that reason It later began to prove itself a he-man game and gained ground as a competitive sport. As a matter of fact, it takes a great deal more stamina or "wind" to play through a fast game of basketball than it does a footbal! gams, even though the football ganio if longer. Limited Number Helps. Another reason for its great growlh among small town schols is the fact that their number of boys is limited and basketball only requires five players, while football requires I I and several more because of the danger of injury. In the state of Iowa more than 700 schools play basketball, while I believe the number of schools playing football is somewhat less than 300. Basketball is very interesting because of its speed and this of course is one of the reasons for Its in- (Tiim In Market Pniel Washington for Catcher Ray Spen cer.

By PATJL 3HICKELSOX CHICAGO, Dec. 13. a)--It's to- lorrow again for that grand old ghting heart and patriarch of base- all, Connie Mack. Gone from him are his great stars f yesterday--Bob Grove, Al Sitn- nons, George Earnshaw, Mickey "·ochrane, Max Bishop, J i m m y ykes, Mule Hans and others--but \ose keen blue eyes that have seen hem come and go for almost a halt' entwy of baseball are gazing in- ently and hopefully toward the. orizon of tomorrow. Connie Mack, 71 years old this lonth, is starting from the bottom p again. He'll Get Buck. His heart ached, but shucks, he's lone it before and he'll get back to he top again. Baseball has seen its comedy and ragcdies, but nothing was quite so ad as the meeting with the tall, gaunt leader of the Athletics with newspapermen Jast night when he made probably the most Important announcement of player deals in Mie game's history. "Well bays," he started, "here it s! Bob Grove (that's the way he said it), Rube Walberg, Max Bishop go to the Red Sox; Mickey Cochrano ;ocs to Detroit, Earnshaw goes to Chicago, and we get Mr. Berry (Catcher Charley Berry) from tho White Sox. Pitcher Bob Kline mid Infielder Harold "Rabbit" Warstlei- from. Boston. That's all." He amiled aa be announced the deals and calmly swept aside a barrage of questions as to salary, terms, etc. "Ho iMved Those Guys." But outside the conference robot, he almost surrendered to his emotions for the first time. Tears wellccl in his eyes and lie slowly wended his way to his room for solitude. "Gee, his heart Is broken," one reporter, who has known him for years, said. "He didn't mind some or the fellows, but it broke his heart to part with Grove and Cochrane. You know ho loved those guys,'' Poor Connie. . A reporter colled Connie's room. He was in but bo didn't answer. But a half hour later down in tho hotel lobby he stood. You wouldn't guess that lie had just broken up his "ball club" except for Jimmle Fox:;. Cochrnne Manager. Cooliranc slid up to him. "I'm m a n a g e r of the Detroit Tigers now, Mr. Mack, you know, and I'd like to buy Hlggins." "What?" exclaimed Mack in genuine bewilderment. "Why, do you -hink for a minute that I want to break up my ball club?"
