(Daly Sports dito)
A PIECE on major league baseball
trades, from the "bleacherite's"
standpoint. Needless to say it was
written by sophomore Pete Lisagor.
* * *
BASEBALL, even though the
weather is inclement, has pushed
the winter sports out of the head-
lines during the past few days, com-
pletely dominating the sports pages.
For the diamond moguls are con-
vened together in Gotham hotels
cooking up big talk about this swap
and that, always with a mercenary
eye trained on the turnstiles. A
shrewd bargain in these annual trad-
ing marts often helps wipe out last
season's deficit and sometimes re-
plenishes the sinking fund.
So far the biggest trades have been
concocted by imaginative reporters,
whose yarns suggest that the Car-
dinals send Dizzy Dean to the Giants
for Mel Ott, Carl Hubbell and a half-
interest in the Statue of Liberty.
Nothing has come out of the
inner sanctums yet as sensation-
al as the deals Connie Mack has
transacted in the past, such as
the ones that gave Jimmy Foxx,
Lefty Grove, Rube Walberg,
Eric McNair to the Red Sox for a
paltry several hundred thousand
dollars, which enabled old Connie
to buy himself a new stiff collar
among other things.
The venerable Athletics' pilot has
shown palpable constraint this win-
ter, negotiating only one deal and
that a straight player transaction
sending Pinky Higgins to the Red
Sox for Bill Werber. It's a matter
of extreme conjecture as to who got
the better of that trade, but no one
will be surprised, except the gullible
Boston buyers, if Higgins suddenly
pulls up next season with some crip-
pling infirmity, such as arthritis,
pink eye, or even athlete's foot.
Mack has an ingenious knack for
' peddling his ivory just before they
develop some incurable baseball mal-
ady. Lefty Grove acquired a sore
arm, Mickey Cochrane's nerves went
haywire (although Black Mike pro-
duced with the Tigers as a manager),
and Al Simmons . .. well, every .time
Jimmy Dykes, and now Cochrane,
thinks of that deal they scurry off to
the nearest drugstore for a bromo.
Burleigh Grimes, the man who
alwaysdneeds a shave, swung his
first deal as Brooklyn's new
manager when he shipped his
only competitor for hirsute hon-
ors,. Frenchy (Moustache) Bor-
dagary, to the Cardinals, who
will undoubtedly relay him to
some minor farm.
The smart boys are saying that
Burleigh will be bounced out of the
lot by the umps when he encounters
Dizzy Dean for the first time. That
oulht to be the verbal clash of the
When the trade winds subside we
still have our money down on Mr.
Cornelius McGillicuddy of Philadel-
phia. Somebody's going to get stung
dealing with that man.

The annual swimming gala car-v
nival scheduled to get under way atj
7:30 tonight has 16 events carded
on the program, including talent1
from Toronto, Detroit, Toledo, Annr
Arbor and the Varsity and freshman
swimming squads.
The outstanding attraction of the
carnival will be the three Dolphin-
ettes of Toronto, coached by the vet-
eran Alex Duff. These three girls1
put on the most beautiful exhibition
of non-racing swimming ever pre-
sented in the water, according to1
swimming experts. Their fancy;
swimming event will be the last on
the program, btopping off the eve-,
ning's exhibition.
The dash events should provide the
utmost in swimming thrills. The
century event, in which 17 men are
entered will be run in three heats
and a final..
Third Heat Is Best
The third heat will undoubtedly
be the fastest as it includes all of
the heavily handicapped men. Hay-]
nie, with a handicap of 3 seconds,1
and Kirar and Tomski, both with
handicaps of 4 seconds apiece, will
swim in the third heat. The men
with the best times in the prelim-
inary heats will compete i'i the,
The 50-yard event, also run in
three heats, has the handicapped
men distributed equally in the pre-
timinaries.tHolmes, Tomski and Ki-
rmr have the fastest times in this
event. Although primarily a free-
styler, Tom Haynie is the most heav-
ily handicapped man in the 100-yard
back-stroke event.
Haynie Handicapped
Both Fred Cody and Harry Reike
have been given five-second handi-
caps as against that of six given
to Haynie. In last year's carnival,
Taylor Drysdale, National champion
in the backstroke, had a great deal
cf trouble in overcoming the two-
second handicap given him against
Haynie and barely nosed out a vic-
Mavis Freeman of the 1936 Wom-
en's Olympic swimming squad and
Helena Tomski, American record
holder in the 100-yard dash fol-
women, wil clash in the century
fle-style event. Miss Tomski, sister
of Walt Tomski of the Varsity is
nationally known in swimming
circles and will appear in Ann Arbor
for the first time. Miss Freeman,
freshman co-ed from Long Island
has been in fine form since her
Berlin trip this summer and should
give the record holder a good race.
Event For Boys
The ninth event of the carnival is
a 150-yard medley relay for boys
under 16. Teams have been en-
tered from Ann Arbor, the Toledo
Club and the Detroit A.C.
The list of event follows:
50-yard free style (Varsity and
frosh), three heats.

Grantland Rice
Favors Eastern
Stars On Team.
NEW YORK, Dec. 10.-(AP)-Col-
lier's 1936 All-American football
team selected by Grantland Rice was
announced today as follows:
Ends, Larry Kelley, Yale, and Gay-
nell Tinsley, Louisiana State.
Tackles, Edwin Widseth, Minne-
sota, and Averell Daniell, Pittsburgh.
Guards, Max Starcevich, Wash-
ington, and Steve Reid, Northwest-
Center, Alex Wojciechowicz, Fo'rd-
Quarterback, Sam Baugh, Texas
Halfbacks, Clint Frank, Yale, and
Ray Buivid, Marquette.
Fullback, Sam Francis, Nebraska.
In awarding gold footballs to these
players, Collier's singled out Frank,
Tinsley and Francis as the three out-
standing players of the year. Tinsley
was the only repeater.
Tracing the movement of "foot-
ball supremacy" through various
parts of the country, the magazine
noted that "the tides of 1936 brought
it back to the East, as shown by a
margin of more than two to one in
over 70 intersectional games."
Captain Matt Patanelli and Jesse
Garber of Michigan both won recog-
nition in the selections. Patanelli is
recognized as one of the foremost
ends in the country; his play during
the year left little to be desired. Gar-
ber played brilliantly on both offense
and del~nse.
Ann Arbor High School's basket-
ball team dropped a 32-22 decision
to their alumni last night at . the
high school gymnasium. Clarence
Isbell and Pete Pagin each tallied
8 points to pace the victors.
