EDDIE COLLINS OFF
TO JOIN CHICAGO
Ex-Athletic Second Sacker
Leaves Philadelphia This
Ifnvlnfricen duly bought and paid for
by Charles Comlskey, Eddlo Collins duly
departed this afternoon for Chicago,
whero he will Join Clarence Rowland's
White Sox. The main body of the Chi
cago Americans well leave Chicago
Wednesday for Loa Angeles. After all
of the Sox have gotten together on the
Western coast they will divide themselves
Into two teams and play the various
clubs of tho Pacific Coast League In a
lone; series of, exhibition games.
Blnckburne, who played second for the
White Sox last season and whose place
Collins will fill henceforth, left yesterday
to Join the Sox. Just what ultimate dis
position will be mado of Blackburne Is
not known, but he will not bo retained
by the White Sox after tho beginning of
tho champlonchlp campaign In April.
Although Collins would rather live in
Philadelphia than Chicago, he goes to the
Windy City determined to make a regular
club out of It, If It can possibly be ac
complished. There Is no doubt that the
addition of Mack's former star will vastly
Increase the pennant chances of the White
Sox. The pitching at the South Side park
this summer should be as ood us last
season, which means that many of the
close affrays which would otherwise be
lost will be won by Eddie Collins' hit
ting and brilliant fielding.

As the Fan Would Write It
"When my dreams come true vrlien mr
ilrenma come true
"I alinll lenn out from the ensement In
the stnrllBht nnd the drw." Itlley.
When iny dreams come true when mv
dreams come true
1 shall own no tally "casement In the
starlight and the dew";
But I somehow rawther faxoncu, as the
hloomln' saying is,
I shall lean out from the bleachers
where thr hall Is on the whiz;
I shall lean out from the bleachers,
rooting loudly for some stew
Who will knock the cover off U when
my dream comes true.
When iny dreams come true we shall
never lose a game,
But shall only icln the pennant by a
battle just the same;
And when the ftght Is hottest and tee
clamor for a fit,
The shortstop or the catcher will arise
and wallop it;
,, spot upon the sunlight or a blot
against the blue.
As they pull the old frankbaker when
my dreams come true.
ll'Aen my dreams come true, oh, the
lobster lack of me
Rhall never smash my bonnet in a
frenzied fit of glee;
The peanuts that I gobble or the flowing
pop. I drink
Will never put my stomach or digestion
on the blink;
And in the crowded street car when the
merry day is through,
I will find a strap to hang on when my
dreams come true.
Wheri my dreams come true they to(H
let me wear a gun,
And when I think the umpire ha de
prived us of a run,
Or lehen the fielder fumbles or the
pitcher' in the air,
I shall get some target practice from
the bleachers then and there;
And tke mutt who fans the breeze when
I think a hit is due,
Had better own a coffin when my
dreams come true.
