Despite the fact that basketball en
thusiasts had come from many adjoin
ing towns, Coach Knapp cancelled the
Swallowing their disappointment, the
fans in general agreed with the atti
tude which the B. Y. C. officials took
in refusing to play and chalked up to
profit and loss the car fare they had
expended in coming to Logan.
Not even Coach Roberts accompanied
the yannigans who came from Provo.
A member of tho faculty was in his
etead. Roberts with his first team
will arrive in Logan today for the

SHEEP FROM GOATS
Sacramento. March 7 While there
has been no sign from Wuherton as to
just which of the squad are to be
ranked as regulars, there was a sepa
rating of the sheep from the goats for
this afternoon's practice Wolverton
picked out some fourteen players and
called them aside for a secret confer
ence as to batting signs and the like
Then they were ordered to bat and
run bases just as would be the case in
a regular game, with tho novice? in thv
field "These men can be considered
regulars," observed Harry, referring
to the batting squad "That is except
for the pitchers and catchers."
So here are the lucky ones Out
fielders Fitzgerald Ellis, Schnller and
Calvo, infielders. Koerner, Downs, Cor I
han. Hollywood. Maislaud, Pick; catch-j
era. Baker and Sepulveda, pitchers,
Steen and Baum.
Listing Baker and Sepulveda as the
backstops doesn't necessarily speu ihe
downfall of Hall, although It probably
does give Don Louis a slight edge.
As to the pitchers, this much can be
deduced: Baum and Steen are the two
who are sure of their Jobs.
