But, it seems to me that it would be a little bit early this year to send Dr.

Eddie Anderson into a coaching assignment with the all-star college football The Mason Cilyan stands well up in Ihe voting, and might be named from the Bis Ten conference as a member of the coaching roJ)al)1 as an assistant to Elmer Layden of Notre Dame who looks like the horse to back in the race for No. 1 job with Hie stars who play the New York Giants in the Chicago Tribune's annual contest a month from now. But. it seems to me, Eddie has a big job ahead of him at the University of Iowa. A hard schedule, material a bit thin and ail the usual things that make life interesting for the coach who is a newcomer in a rocky situation.

So, I'll be just as happy if he's free to work on Iowa's football problems this season where this department wishes him all the success in the world. STORY IN COLUMN 8 YANKEE EMPIRE NEAR TO SALE?

LOUIS TWIST Change Might Solve Problem of Failing Major League Gate By HENRY McLEMORE United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, (U.R--All I know ibout the report that the Yankee Daseball empire is going to be sold that it can be had--for a price. The asking price would be around $10,000,000 but if anybody came along and laid $8,000,000 on the line in ready money, the heirs woud wrap the whole thing up in tinfoil and say, "Take it, mister." You must keep in mind that Jake 1 Ruppert was alive the Yankees were his pride and joy and about the only hobby he knew in his late years. The Yankees may be a pride and joy to the heirs but they are no hobby, and if the heirs are to get any substantial dough out of the estate of the late brewer it must come from the sales of property, and the Yankees with their far-flung chain system represent a very rich property indeed.

Where, Oh Where? Now where are you going to find anybody around with sufficient money and sufficient interest in baseball to lay $8,000,000 on the line? Don't wear your eyes out looking because there isn't any such animal. If the Yankees are sold--and some day they will be --it will be piece by piece, club by club, and perhaps, in the end, even player by player. Tins brings me up to what I think may eventually be the solution to the messy baseball situation which exists in St. Louis, which is strictly a one-club city, but which, tries with commercial 'futility 'to support two major league clubs--the Cards and Browns. I happen to know that Yankees would not mind selling their Kansas City club, which is in the process of building up an enviable attendance and artistic record.

What's more Kansas City itself has major league aspiration. The team as it stands probably could perform creditably in either the big leagues. I wouldn't win any pennants but il would do all right. Maybe Moving Day? I happen to know that if Sam Breadon, who owns the Cards wants to buy the Kansas City club he will not have the door slammed in his face. And thi goes for the bunch of St.

Louio business men who are behind the Browns. What I'm trying to say that if either Breadon or the Browns' group wants to move the Yankees will listen to a proposition concerning Kansas City. Everybody in baseball knows the St. Louis situation has reachet such a state that something mus be done and that something amounts to moving one of the clubs, either the Browns or the Cards, out of town. Breadon ha: his home there and doesn't wan to move.

The people back ot thi Browns think that in time the; can put their enterprise over sue cessfully. What's going to come out of stalemate? Offhand it would seem to be a tug of war oE finances Can Breadon outlast the other fellows in a plural losing adven ture? How much more mone can Breadon afford to lose in trying to force the Browns to sur render? How far can the peopli back of the Browns afford to go' American Loop to Stay My guess--and it's strictly guess--is that when the final ans wer is written the American league will dominate St. Loui baseball. First, because it's tra ditionally an American city. Second, I have reason to believe that the group back the Browns has received assurances from the American league directors that they are in their corn er.

Why do I say that? Well, wha do you think is back the Brown's refusal to put out any more to install lights in their ball park? Mind you, they own the park. The Cards are merely paying guests. If any baseball city in the country needs night baseball, it is St. Louis. Night baseball saved Cincinnati--at least pulled it out of a big, ugly financial hole, and it has helped Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Cleveland, etc.

With night baseball maybe Breadon and the Cards could make a go of it. Without night baseball they are definitely licked. Well, my thought on this is that the directors of the American league a encouraging Browns to lay off night baseball, and thus make it tougher for Brendon anci the Cards. I think Ihis part of a studied strategy to force Breadon to cry "enough," and move.

(Lock photo, Kayenay engraving Speedsters Break American Record in-Women's Relay Los Angeles Trio Sets New Mark in National A. A. U. Swimming Meet By JACK FLEISCHER United Press Staff Correspondent DBS MOINES, (U.R) speedsters representing the Los Angeles Athletic club set a new American record of four minutes, one and six-tenths seconds in the 300-meter relay qualifying trials of the Women's National A. A.

U. swimming meet here Sunday. The mark is three and six- tenths second better than the record established in 1936. Two newly crowned champions and a former titleholder comprised the Los Angeles team. Edith Motridge, who took the 100- rneter 'backstroke title Saturday night, was lead-off swimmer.

Won Breaslstroke Title Esther Williams swam the 100- meter breaststroke leg and won the championship in that event the first day of the meet. Virginia Hopkins, former 100-meter backstroke titlist, anchored the team, swimming the free style 100- meters. Three records stood only by chance as the stars fell short by seconds. One mark was threatened by a 14 year old Hawaiian, Miss Fujiko Katsutani, the crowd's favorite. The olive-sidnned maiden was no disappointment even though she failed in her ambition to break the record of the 200 meters breast stroke.

Blames Air Sickness Her coach, S. S. Akomoto, declared the long plane ride resulting in airsickness for Miss Katsutani was partly responsible for her failure to shatter the mark. The trip was her first to the United States and the climax to her years oceanic training in her specialty swim. Carl Ahlgran the University Iowa, won the Y.
