THURSDAY EVENING, JANUARY 24/1924 THE OGDEN STANDARD-EXAMINER Wildcats Leave For Three-Game Hoop Series . ·· ' ·" i . · ... . ·' . *. Since the close of the baseball season Eddie Collins, famous second sacker of the. Chicago White Sox. has been the central figure in many a baseball rumor. So far jione of -the gossip has -come true. A year ago at this time Collins figured, that he would Tje with the Yankees during' the 1923 cam- Urn. Throughout the winter the deal between the Yankees and tha Sox hung fire, but finally was passed up 1 by both clubs.' It -has always been a cherished i ambition of Collins to play with ! Xew York. Failure to be traded to the Yankees last year was n .distinct disappointment. 0::0 0::0 0::0 0::O O::0 0::0 0::0 0::0 0::0 '0::0 0::0 0::0 Q::0 0::0 0::0 0::0 0::0 0::0 GHJCAGO WEBER CAGERS CONFIDENT OF WONDER ATM MR.

He hnfl one of the best years of his orllllnntv career. ; Rumor has linked the name of :· - '..Collins as Washington's new man- jkger. The fact that Owner Griff- LJjij£»»i!S«S'UCh. a f i n e P la y er as Harris atsecond is one of the things that casts a bit of doubt on such a report. Harris, much younger than Colina. is ono of the game's greatest second Backer. Ic Collins was ! a star outfielder instead of a sec- iond baseman it would make the , report that Collins was to manage 'the club sound much more logical (The Washington club needs out- Illelil strength far more than the Vadditlon of an infield star. Wjiat about the chancee of Ed- Jdie Collins to succeed as a bij league manager? Hero is what Kid Gleason had to say on that subject one day last summer when Tasked .'him: "Eddie Collins is the most ralu- ' able ball player I have ever come 'in contact with. A wonder me- · chanically. he has even a keener ' brain. Collins rarely makes a mis- ·take. His brain seems to be work- Ing a couple of plays ahead all jthe time. He has the ideal tem- iperament for a ball playar, conscl- 'ontious almost to a fault, yet able ' ' t o accept the bitter and the sweet .-with a smile. He seldom worries.

On paper the B . - Y . C. five at Logan appears to have the best chances. They have won practically every game played this season and 'o'om as real contenders for the Utah-Idaho stato junior college chamipionship. From, the Improvement shown by the Weberltes, they are expected 10 battle their rivals to the f i n a l whistle in the remaining games of the season. One of the big handicaps to the "Weber team is the loss of Bruno. star forward, who has been ruied ineligible. Bruno was found ineligible under the two-week registration rule and will be allowed to compete only in non-league -contests. Coach WJlkenson announced this morning that the following men would make the jaunt: Couch, Bruno, L. "WHkenson, Barker, Bramwoll, Parker, Woods, Hales and Blackburn. NEW CAPTAIN". A new captain to replace Bruno will be elected on the trip. "Although we face a hard three- game series, we are confident that we will be able to defeat our rivals," said Coach "WJlkenson today. "The game with the B. T. C. five this evening should be the most hotly contested game of the trip. The Loganites have a strong aggregation and are well fortified with reserves. "The game with Ricks Normal should also be a corker. Although the strength of the Idaho Tech team is unknown, the Pocatello outfit always comes through with a scrappy five,"' ' ·· · - v'-' The Weberltes -will return to. Osden Sunday.
