IN THIS CORNER. o by Mel Fineberg

After ,dabbling a bit in the stock
market and then trying the roulette'
wheel after finals, it seems that may-
be these are mere petty gambles when
compared to baseball trades. In fact,
most of the trades of recent seasons
have made the numbers racket look
like a compound fraction.
Take a look at some of the master-
minding of the baseball barterers.
Our own Detroit Tigers who seem to
be nestling so cozily in fifth place
at the nonce might be pushing the
bottom out of the league had not
Black Mike Cochrane risked the,
wrath of the Detroit fandom by

Walker and Marve Owen to Chicago
by R. W. Webster each Monday and
Wednesday afternoon from 5 to 6 p.m.
on the golf driving range in the In--
tramural Building.
John Johnstone will supervise the
tennis lessons, which will be held on
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 to 6
p.m. on the Ferry Field courts. The
first meeting of the class will be held
in the Intramural Building.
Monday and Thursday evenings,
from 7 to 8 p.m., swimming classes
will be conducted in the Intramural
Building pool by A. A. James, activi-
ties Supervisor of the Intramural De-t

Now, thanks to Kennedy's 9 wins
in a row, he and Black Mik6 are
heroes and the Sox trader. Dykes,
is a bum and what is even worse, is
losing ball games.
Then there was the strange case
of Dizzy Dean. $185,000 iron men
plus $85,000 worth of baseball men
changed his biological development
from Cardinal to Cub and changed
Chicago Owner Phil Wrigley's hair
from black to grey. Now, with Dean's
strange arm malady, Michaelangelo's
David is the only thing that can be
compared to this quarter of a mil-
lion dollar bust. The Dizzy One's
arm may still recover and the Cubs
may still win the pennant but Owner
Phil will still have been stuck. But
maybe its compensation-haven't a
lot of us been stuck in his chewing

Tom Yawkey. The Gold Sox may
come home in front this year but
compound interest on Yawkey's in-
vestment would buy a lot of surplus
wheat. But then, what's two or
three million-gulp.
A couple of years ago the Cubs

took it on the chin in the Chuck
Klein deal. It seems that Mr. Klein
could hit, run, field-in fact, do
everything. But it developed AFTER
Chicago bought him from Philadel-
phia, that aforementioned Mr. Klein
had developed a strange affinity for
aforementioned Philadelphia and
once away from the city of brotherly
love he became afflicted with that
strange diamond disease-unableum
to hittum. So Mr. Klein languished
around Wrigley Field for a while and
then returned once more to play first
fiddle in the bandbox park at Philly.
The case of Wally Berger vs. Hor-
ace Stoneham, business manager of
the Giants, resulted in a verdict in
favor of Boston. Berger could pow-
der the pill in Boston but had sorely
neglected the fielding aspect of base-
ball. He found, as did Messrs. Stone-
ham and Terry, that that neglected
portion was a prerequisite to pen-
nant winning. So the ponderous Mr.
Berger was relegated to a pinch hit-
ting post and finally traded to Cin-
With so many of these big money
trades going wrong it appears that
big league managers are only human.
They possess no intuitive ability, no
divine prophetic gift which enable
them to foretell the future.

Instruction in string, woodwind and
brass instruments will be given

High School with registration for

tal classes will be allowed to par-
ticipate in the summer band or
string ensemble. Also included in the
summer music program will be a
harmonica band.
All classes will be neld in Room

Repertory Players' Summer Season
Offers Women's Roles Of All Kinds

The Michigan Repertory Players,
celebrating their tenth anniversary
season this summer, offer in their
roster of plays unlimited opportuni-
ties for women attending 'the Sum-
mer Session.
"Brother Rat," playing July 6
through July 9, has in its cast of
players two roles of contrasting
types. Joyce Winfry is the "prom-
trotter" type of girl-the kind that
makes a business of collecting pins
and undergraduates. The other fem-
inine role is that of Claire Ramm,
daughter of the commandant of Vir-
ginia Military Institute where the
play takes place. Claire is the typical
"Phi Beta" with horn-rimmed spec-
tacles and all. However, Claire has
her points, and in the process of be-
ing a "regular fella" and tutoring the
school lunkhead, is almost caught in

the boys' room in the dead of night by
her father.
"The Shoemakers' Holiday," play-
ing July 13 through July 16, has in
its list of characters a woman of the
Elizabethan type---very large and
dignified. The New York production
of the show imported Marian War-
ing-Manley, who is one of the largest
women on the English stage, to play
the part opposite Whitford Kane's
Simon Eyre portrayal.
Irina in "Idiot's Delight" is a pho-
ney Russian heiress whose disguise is
pierced by a Broadway song and
dance man who recognizes her as a
woman he had known in a hotel in
Omaha, Neb. The smooth acting of
Lynn Fontanne in the New York
production put the role over to per-
fection. "Idiot's Delight" opens July
20 and runs through July 23.
July 27 through July 30 brings

"Kind Lady" to the Mendelssohn.
The leading feminine part in the
play is that of a wealthy London-
bred Englishwoman, who takes into
her huge town house a party of
strange people, who proceed to "do
her in."
Sarah Pierce heads the property
ri(*partment again, and many oppor-
JiiInities are open for women interest-
ed in rounding up antiques and other
properties necessary to the business
of the play.
The Faculty Reception for Sum-
mer Session students will be held
Friday at the Horace H. Rackham
School for Graduate Studies, and
not at the League as was reported
in the Daily yesterday.
