Owner Comiskcy , of the "White Sox paid Connie Mack $50 000 for the sterling inflclder, Collins in Ws first season with the Sox did not play the same brand of ball as he produced for the Athletics. During the present year he regained Vila former punch and is hitting and fielding in the same fashion as when he was starring with the champion Athletics. Eddie la a veteran of several woild series and he can be depended upon to do his very best to upset the Giants. "Buck" "Weaver is a remarkable shortstop, though he is not- considered the equal-of Fletcher. Fletcher out- hits him and is a better fielder. But that does not make Weaver a poor player. Being infciior to Fletcher is no disgrace. Weaver is a hard-Playing infielder. He is not an cxtremely scored by the Cornhuskers, but disallowed by the officials for the infliction of penalties. These breaks in the luck were partially counterbalanced when Wilder, breaking through the Wesleyan line blocked a forward pass by Shelley, gilder recovered the ball and raced 15 yards to a touchdown. Hubka, who filled in at rieht end for the Injured Riddell and performed brilliantly at the position, also took advantage of a Wesleyan fumble by grabbing the pigskin and sprinting 25 yards to the ' Methodists' goal. . The Wesleyan attack was helpless before the sturdy defense of the Nebraska forwards. An occasional hne plunge or delayed pass gained a few yards of ground, but the sum total of the Methodists' efforts to advance the pigskin was throe first downs. Only once did Wesleyan have the ball within striking: distance of the Nebraska goal A punt by Carman was fumbled by Schellenberg on the Huskers* 25- yard line. Two line plays cost the Methodists a loss of several yards and Carman then dropped back to the heavy batter, but he usually hits when | the hit is needed. l . j Weaver and Collins can be expected to stop many Giant rallies, if a play 1 , centering about them can do it. j till VI V^*,LlIllCfcll.

The " opinions of tho two men regarding tlio , ptomotlon gamo arc lntcrestlng.,vHRack · gives an Intimate- view of tho methods emrloyed by certain boxers when ho cltei some correspondence he claims he had with Mtko Gibbons. The Memphis Man wanted tho Phantom to box at Memphis a few weeks OKO. Ho mndc what he conslddred a generous off*r.

In his attempts to match up *"the topnotchers of tho game. Johnston ha» discovered that It Is easier to swing · a half mftllon deal than It Is to .bring "two star rivals together. There Is* con- tlnual bickering over terms and tho bos- " era have kept him in hot Twxter even " up to the very minute they were to * outer the ring. t -- -- * Of course. not all the promoters in this country have had the samo im- fortunate experiences that Johnston nnd .

Tom Andrews at Milwaukee and his associates have ,no leason to feel enthusiastic over their ventures, but thby still keep plug* if wili a be seen from the foregoing brief review of the operations - of tho principal promoters In this country that tho chances of success are against tho matchmakers. Spoaklni- o f ' t h e success of Jim Coffroth calls to mind the fact that the sunny-haired promoter of the Golden Oato is mnklnir serious effotts to gel back Into the came In the far west. Coffioth nnd his-, associates have been opointlnK a racetrack at Tia Juana, Mexico for the past two yenrs and have been meeting with fair success.

Thia would bo a simon-pure welterweight title match: ns Lewis is now tho holder of that crown. Another big match that Coffroth as under consideration Involves Benny Leonard and Charley White. If he hopes to Innd this plum, however, Coffroth will have to bid quite royally.

He declares that, although the · "shine ball" Is a myth, he has purposely en- courased the belief that his delivery is artificial. . "The more the other teams have puz- zted their heads over my pitching the greater their inability to hit," sa^s the Chicago wizard. . »"rVe let them think there's something'wrong just for th e fun of the thing. F.ut the 'shine ball' is noth-~ ing more than the o.ld 'knuckle, ball' with variations. Control is the big reason for my success. I've mastered it after years of practice and I'm getting results. Sensible persons ought to know by this time that I couldn't doctor the ball with a, foreign substance and get away with it * Clcotte 'declares that two of Mils uniforms recently were stolen from the club house locker, presumably by ers who wanted to find ont whether th« pitcher had been rubbing something on the ball or not.

The failure of the Yankees to win a pennant since Ruppert and Huston hav,o taught them nnd put a mint of tnoney nto them hns not been altogether the fault of the field manager. The old jinx hns had a lot to do with holding Colortel Ruppert's athletes back, and although the team was not under a driving manager, it wonld have done much tetter with a fair share of luck. But the Yankee owners are far from discouraged. Thrv realize that winning baseball clubs often take three-and four venrs in the building, nnd thev are determined to plug a-wav until thev wins 1 pennant to the big- town and flaunt it from tho flagpole of a brand new bai pork--for the Yanks are to have a park within a short time after th e war ends. There may be many changes made in the complexion of the Yank lineup by the time the team takes the field to start another campaign.

Mnisel. Bauman anfl Ged^, eon--the title of nil three Is still held bv the Yanks--have evidentlv failed to fill the bill at second basp. BUI Fewster, a candidate from the Baltimore Orioles, will try to land that berth: and next spring It is said the Yanks will have scevoral more youngsters to try -out for the job. Tho outfield will get-a lot of attention, from present indications. The Yank ·wound up the season with three new outfielders In their llneuo. fhey were Camp, from Newark: Vlck. from Mcm- nhls. anfl Lamar. from Jack Dunns Baltimore team.
