Extensive Trading Is Expected
at Big League Conference
to Be Held Soon.
By Fred A. Huber
With the annual meeting of the
owners of the American and Na-
tional League baseball clubs just
around the corner, at least three
new managers w:i -:e out to pro-
cure some better talent for the 1932,
Max Carey, longtime coach of the
Brooklyn Robins, has finally taken
over the reins, Lew Fonseca, veter-
an outfielder is piloting the Chi-
cago White Sox and George Gib-
son has been named mentor of the
Oitt& urgh Pirates in place of Jewel
The newest announcement in the
baseball world was the re-signing of
Stanley 'B u c k y'
Harris as m a n-
ager of the De-
troit ball club.
Harris, who pilot-
ed his team to
p e n n a n t at
Washington, has
had very l i ttl1e
success with the
T i ge r s in t oe
three year she
has managed,
A few tradesi
I4ATZRIS have already
been consumated, Andy High, di-
minutive thi r d baeman being
,traded to Cincinnati by the pen-
nant winning St. Louis Cardinals
for Nick Cullop a young outfielder
who was immediately turned over
to the Cardinal farm at Columbus.
Milton taston, veteran right
handpitcher, who has served with
New York, St. Louis, Washington
and Boston in the American
League will wear his fifth junior
circuit uniform next year. He has
been traded to the Chicago team
for Bob Weiland, a young south-
paw. Gaston has never been with
a club at the height of its winning
power, always managing to pile up
a good record with second division
clubs, however.
The White Sox also obtained Sad
Sam Jones, veteran twirler and
Minter Hayes a youthful utility in-

fielder from the Washington Sena-
tors for Johnny Kerr, scrappy sec-
ond sacker and Carl Reynolds, fleet-
footed outfielder.
Many deals are bound to be made
when the club moguls gather in
the near future. Hack Wilson,
stormy outfielder of the Chicago
Cubs is almost certain to be on auc-
tion block, while it is apparent that
Fonseca is trying valiently to re-
model the lowly White Sox. The
Cleveland Indians have a gap or
two to be filled and the Detroit
Tigers could bolster almost any
position without hurting the team
a bit.
In the National League Dan How-
ley must face the task of procur-
ing enough young blood to pull a
poor eighth place team to a much
higher position in 1932 or retire
from the managership of the Red-
legs. Gibson, at Pittsburgh faces
a like rebuilding campaign. while
Bill McKechnie is greatly cheered
up at Boston by the purchasing of
Art Shires, slugging first baseman
from Milwaukee, whose bat is ex-
pected to fill a much needed punch
in the batting attack of the Braves.
Coach Hoyt has issued the first
call for Varsity indoor track, all
men interested report to him af-
ter their classes any afternoon
this week.

Intramural Department Arranges
Squash and Handball Meet
for Tonight.
One of the biggest events on the
squash and handball calendar fo~r
the current year is scheduled for
tonight at 8 o'clock when the Cadil-
lac Athletic Club of Detroit will
bring a team of picked men to meet
a selected group of Michigan play-
ers. The exhibition will take place
on the Intramural courts.
Many stars of national ranking
will be in the visiting group. Ba-
phey, who holds the Detroit' city,
the State, and National Doubles
championship will lead the Cadillac
team, in the handball exhibition.
His doubles partner, Dworman, will
also make an appearance. Schau-
felberger is another member of the
Detroitraggregation who holds Na-
tional rankiing.
Tait, Hodges, and Davidow are
the squash experts who will appear
with the Cadillac team. Who will
oppose them from among the group
of Michigan men selected has not
been decided.
