Giants Purchase Star;

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Jan. 5-In one of th
three biggest money deals in all base-
ball history, catcher Walker Coope
was sold today by the St. Louis Car-
dinals to the New York Giants for
$175,000 in cash.
Confirming the "most publicizec
secret" of the winter season, Giant
President Horace Stoneham insisted
no players were involved in the dea
and that the purchase of Cooper is
not contingent on when he is dis-
charged from the Navy. He has been
in the service since last May 2 and i
stationed at Lambert Field, near St
"However, we hope that Cooper will
be out of the Navy by April," Stone-
ham added, as he was told that new
naval ratings have dropped the mini-
mum discharge requirements to 35
Available records show that only
twice before has as much as $175,000
in cash been involved in a player
deal. In 1938, the Cards sent pitcher
Dizzy Dean to the Chicago Cubs for
$185,000 in cash and three additional
players. After the 1934 campaign,
Washington Senators' President
Clark Griffith sent son-in-law Joe
Cronin to the Boston Red Sox for
Lyn Lary and a sum in cash variously
reported anywhere from $150,000 to

CHICAGO, Jan. 5-(1P)-Coaches
of the newly-organized All-America

AND MORE HONORS
FOR ACCURACY THAN
ANY OTHER TIMEPIECE
SHED no tears just yet for the Michigan swimming team, its 43-41 loss to
Great Lakes in its first dual outing of the season to the contrary.
The Sailors may have beaten Matt Mann's latest edition of Wolverine
tank talent, but we will wager a considerable sum that very few other teams
turn the trick the rest of the season. And we include this same Great Lakes
squad, which will entertain the Michigan natators next weekend at the
Michigan's 1945-46 swimming team is a young team, composed mostly
of first-year men who are still in the improving stage. Their times for this
early in the season were, for the most part, very good.
With almost no exceptions,"every man on the squad will be clipping
fractions of seconds and full seconds off those times before many more
meets are entered in the record books. And when they do, the opposition
can watch out.
in Dick Weinberg, the former Saginaw High star, Mann has one of
the finest looking sprint freestyle prospects to turn up in quite awhile. Wein-
berg's last leg of the 400-yard relay, done in :52 flat, is conclusive evidence
that he is ready to swim in the big time.
THEN there is the apple of the veteran coach's eye, yioung Matt Mann 111,
who looks like the class of the field in the distance events. The younger
Mann was more than impressive as he copped both the 200 and 440-yard
freestyle races with plenty to spare.
For the first time in many years, Mann has dug up some real strength
off the diving board. His trio of Al Canja, Gil Evans, and Ralph Trimborn
will bring plenty of points into the Michigan scoring column.
Bob Matters looked very good in the breaststroke leg of the medley
relay, though he did not swim in the 200-yard breaststroke. Team Capt.
Heini Kessler and Bob Sohl should also come along.
But the main thing to be noted in the Great Lakes' meet was the rapid
improvement made in the time department since the state AAU champion-
ships three weeks ago. That improvement, we think, will continue. Which
is why we say that 1946 can easily be another banner year for Matt Mann
and the Michigan swimming team.
