BRADENTON, Fla., Feb. 13 — Jimmy Wilson believes that u iiesv faces .'make the Phillies far less futile, and speaks of the firsl division. Wilson has given Philadelphia National League followers, 'if nny, a new deal, and (lien some, In rebuilding. Only Fidgety Plill Collins, Htin- sen, and Penrce, pitchers, nnd Catcher Todd rcma\n of Die players who were on hand In 1934 when llic brilliant catcher was brought over from the St. I/nits CarcluMi as manager. Wilson bases his hopes tor n rise oh pitching, added punch, speed, and hustle. ."We have young players who can get over the ground," says Wilson, who'Is wintering here. "Dolph Co- iiillll, Chiozza, liucky Wallers, .Ethan Allen, Johnny Moore, Curt Davis, and Eucl Moore all came to us last year, anil with the experience of,playing together It !s felt.that Ihcy will do much'better this season. . , "The club . as a whole is salis- fnctory. ' "Like the grail majority of managers I am concerned most about my pitchers. I hiive four who ically know ulmt il Is all about in Davis, ,Euel Moore, Collins, and Sylvester Johnson, and hope to get one or two good ones'.from among quite a few who are com. ing up from the minors with first-class 'reputations. * * f I'ilchiiiR Prospects I nKo arn counting strongly on Joe Bowman, obtained from the Giants, ' " hander.
