Double didn't find what it was look-
It seems that we were eager to
kiiow how the other nine schools
felt about the swimming sched-
ule difficulties which cracked Mich-
igan across the jaw last weekend.
To us it was a serious problem. ButI
to them, evidently the matter has
Only one paper, the DAILY ILLINI,
tarriedl any story of the Wolverine
snubbing. It was a two inch article
written by the Associated Press which
told of Matt's comparing his boys to
Chicago's gridiron squad.
The MINNESOTA DAILY told of
the Gophers' "swell schedule." They
have six Conference meets and three
good trips. The DAILY NORTH-
WESTERN makes -only a brief men-
tion of the natatorial situation. As
far as the OHIO STATE LANTERN
is concerned, you would have never
known that the Buckeyes have a
swimming team anymore by read-
ing the last three editions.
The point is that aside from the
flimsy two-inch story in the Illi-
nois paper, none of the other
schools thought the matter import-
ant enough to mention.
O THE DOUBLE, the whole situa-
tion seems tremendously vital to
the Conference. Are we to allow this
sort of thing to continue in the fu-
ture? It's a big problem that de-
serves some attention.
Right now the coaches of the minor
Conference sports can evade or avoid
their powerful Big Ten rivals at their
own will. The schedule meetings
In Triple Deal
CLEVELAND, Dec. 12-(P)-The
Cleveland Indians tonight announced
a three-cornered deal intended to
bolster their outfield and pitching
The tribe obtained outfielder Ger-
ald Walker, pitcher Jim Bagby, Jr.,
and catcher Gene Desautels from the
Boston Red Sox in exchange for
catcher Frankie Pytlak, infielder
Odell Hale and pitcher Joe Dobson.
The Red Sox traded outfielder
Roger Cramer to the Washington
Senators for Walker before the deal
could be completed, the Indians of-
With the acquisition of Walker, the
Indians hope to give the outfield the
batting punch it lacked in Cleve-
land's World Series pennant drive
"I'm delighted with the deal," said
Roger Peckinpaugh, recently ap-
pointed manager of the Tribe. "As I
see it, we got exactly what we went
after without giving up anything but
Dobson's prospects. And don't forget
that Bagby has some prospects, too."
The 31-year-old Walker, a native
of Gulfport, Miss., averaged 100 runs
batted in per season for the past
five years, accounting for 96 with
the Senators last summer. He pre-
viously played with Detroit's Tigers
and the Chicago White Sox.
This isn't the first time that this
sort of snubbing has taken place.
Three years ago when Ohio State
was riding high on the water ways,
most of the other Conference
schools found their schedules all
filled up when the Buckeyes came
around. Michigan met the Peppe
charges twice that year, and was
dumped on both occasions.
It doesn't occur only in swimming.
Wrestling and track teams through-
out the Conference have felt the
same tendencies when they grew too
As far as we're concerned, Michi-
gan can do without the Conference
in swimming this year. It makes
little difference to the Double that
our Wolverines will be deprived of a

Big Ten dual meet title which they
clearly deserve. They will easily carry
off top honors in the annual Confer-
ence meet at the end of the season.
That's the one that counts.
WE ARE LOOKING farther into the
future. This occi,,riee is apt
to have its results. A ea precedent
has been set. The only reason that
Michigan did get its two meets is an
old contract and the fact that a for-
mer Wolverine swimmer now coaches
one of the schools. Otherwise we
would have been left completely out
in the cold.
From now on anything can hap-I
pen. There will be no scruples in
any of these schedule meetings.
The better teams will always have
the schedule troubles to fear. There
will be a definite discouragement
to efficiency, until Major Grif-
fith's office takes over the arrang-
ing of meets..
It seems funny that the other nine1
schools can't see this.
