Elliot, of .the Roanoke club. Is expected
In the Capital In a day or so for a con
ference with Manager Griffith.
Undoubtedly Manager Griffith wftl
have several youngsters too green to
hold on to. the game under the large
tent. He will want to keep strings at
tached to them until such time as they
show possible ability in the majors or
their lack of the necessary skill ever to
'make big league players.
Without seeking to disparage the
.abilities of any of the new Climbers, it
must be admitted fiom the start that
the chances of success are distinctly
against those who have had no experi
ence. This number includes "Dutch"
Munch and Jack Egan, the two semi
pro backstops: Victor Bickers. Bob Aus
tin and Buck Barton, the green twirl
er; Baldomero Acosta. the sixteen-year-old
Cuban outfielder, and Zack Erhart,
the Columbia University infielder. Of
course, some of these lads may surprise
everybody by showing enough class to
. remain with the team, but the chances
are against them.
Manager Griffith doesn't Intend to let
any likely lad out of his control. If
.the youngster -needs experience to make
h!m a smooth performer, he will be
placed in some minor league club fcr
development. Roanoke Is anxious to
make such a working arrangement with
the Washington club, and some of these
green -kids may find themselves playing
in Roanoke when the campaign opens.
Will .Be Crowded.
Miquc Martin, the safe and sane
trainer of the- Climbers, who arrived in
Charlottesville yesterday, and com
menced immediate preparations for the
coming of the noble young athletes, in
formed Manager Griffith over the tele
phone today that the "camp will be
pretty crowded when the entire squad
of players and camp -followers showed
"I shall have more men in camp tnan
J had expected." explained Manager
Griffith, "but I've never seen a stream
I couldn't swim yet. and 1'Jl find some
way out of It all. We may have to
bunk in pretty close, but we'll do It
Griffith will have thirty-eight ball
players In his camp, seven newspaper
men and some other unattached gen
tlemen, including the manager, trainer,
and coach of the athletes. This brings
the total up to about fifty, all of whom
must eat and sleep like everybody else.
Ainsmith Begins Work.
E. "Dorr Ainsmith, eager to do some
thing beside sitting around and denying
that he fled from Mexican bullets down
in Texas, has begun training at the
"J. M. C. A., and has put a lot of
life Into the work of the squad. When
Eddie gts warmed up he odesn't hesi

Vanderbilt's Crack Pitcher Has
Chances to Join Climbers
NASHVILLE. Tenn.. Feb. 27. Wilson
Collins, the crack pitcher of the Van
dcrbilt University nine. Is considering
handsome offers' from Manager Griffith,
of Washington, and Manager Mack, of
Philadelphia. He is expected to give
a decision within a day or so. He has
another year to play'at Vanderbilt, and
Coach McGugin Is using his utmost ef
torts to keep his star pitcher In college.
Collins Is the best college pitcher In
the South. AVhlle possessing a good
curve ball, his control is what really
wins for him. As a ba&e runner, he
compares favorably with professional
plaers. He plays halfback on the foot
ball eleven, being one of the best run
ning bacKs In the country.
The Philadelphia club will play three
exhibition games here this spring, and
Collins will have a heart-to-heart talk
with Connie Mack.

Lack of proper support from the of
