Major, Minor Meetings End with No Big Deals By JOE REICHLKK NEW YORK, Dec. 10. (AP)—The windup of the weeklong minor and major league baseball conventions today ps^ ' duced nothing but a lot of legislative action which was greeted by yawns from the man in the street. "What happened to all those dy-f namit« deals cooked up last week in Columbus?" they asked. The plain truth is they turned out to be » lot of duds. An Innocent bystander would have wagered a week's salary that at least one trade would be pulled off the way the club officials, especially Buzzy Bavasi of Brooklyn and Gabe Paul of Cincinnati, hustled around talking shop . with anyone who was willing to listen. But now it's all over. Mo bis league trades. No zales. No purchases. No nothing.

Each league had an excuse for not completing a transaction. American League men blamed it on the veil of secrecy that shrouds the status of Joe DiMaggio. All Want to Trade All clubs are anxious to trade with the world champion New York Yankees who are the only ones with expendable young players with promise. The Yankees, however, have said they will not entertain a deal until they learn from DiMaggio whether he intends to play. The Yankee clipper has promised he will make known his- decision tomorrow. National Leagues say they have been stymied in deals because of Salgh's failure to select his manager. "I have broached a deal to Mr. Saigh." said an official, "only to have Saigh tell me he wouldn't do anything before naming a manager. I know of at least two other clubs that got the same answer from him." . To be sure, there has been a great deal of trade talk. The optimistic still think Detroit and Cleveland will engineer a trade soon. As late as Inst night General Manager Hank Qreenberg of the Indians and Charley Gchringer of the Tigers were closeted in a secret gabfest. It was whispered that the ic irom -mi- lncl ians were seeking righthanded rushing and P°"' cr represented by the Tigers' „.!,__ . _ Hoot Evers and Johnny Groth.
