Thursday, October 7th, 1926
Both sides appear content with the trade finalized today that will send 33-year-old C Abdul-Hamid bin Farraj to the Bône USM, while the Oran USM will receive 40-year-old 1B Kahil bin Firas.
"This is a move that filled a few gaps in our roster," said Joe Unknown, USM general manager.
For his part, the USM GM said the trade was made "in the best interest of our organization's future." BNN analysts reported that on paper the trade seemed to be a plus for both ball clubs. The players involved are expected to join their new teams for the next scheduled game.
bin Farraj has hit for a .270 career average and totaled 348 hits, 13 home runs and 141 RBIs.
In 400 career games bin Firas has hit .301 with 355 hits, 12 home runs, 167 RBIs and scored 179 runs.

Tuesday, October 5th, 1926
Flanked by his two young children, Al Warner said his reason for retirement is simple.
"I want to spend more time being a father now," the Oran AS Marine closer said in announcing that this season would be his last in pro baseball. "I'm 37 years old now, I think it's a good time to go."
Since he came into the league, Warner has been credited with 14 saves. In 61 games, he has compiled a 7-13 won-lost record with 13 strikeouts in 112.2 innings and a 5.43 ERA.
