the B. T. C and tho Iogan Agje3 on
successive nights faco tho University
of Utah baskotball crow at Logan this
Tvoek. Tomorrow night Coach Knapp's
, collegians -will face the crimson while j
I Saturday tho. big struggle of the year
with tho A. C. Is billed to take place.
Utah's defeat by the B. Y. U. has un
doubtedly detracted from tho general
I interest manifested in the latter con
jtest it is true, but from present Indi
cations the Hilltoppers have an even
jchanco to take the heavy end of the
score, A large number of students
.will accompany the team to Logan and
engage In oratorial matches with tho
Farmers, whilo the hoop artists per
form on the floor.
More determination and willingness
to do hard work has been manifested
in this week's practice than at any
time so far this season. The drubbing
i at the hands of Coach "Gene" Roberts
"second -stringers" was just tho im
jpetus needed to raise the spirit of the
players to a fighting pitch. Two games
in a row is a hard proposition for a
team to buck, specially when the
showing made by the B. Y. C. against
the Aggies last week is considered.
The A. C. was barelv able to vanauish
I I the other Logan school to the great
surprise of its followers.
Expect Tough Games.
Andy Mohr, the Aggie guard who
has been a large part of tho scoring
machine in every contest of the sea
son, is said to bo out of the game be
cause of illness, but the result of tho
B. Y. U. game has made all such stor
ies look suspicious to tho east benoh
ers. Jarvis, who played only one-half
in the B. Y. C. g,ame is back in the
harness and will bo able to hold up
his end of the teamwork Saturday. It
is hardly likely that the university
quint will allow the "Y" college to get
very far and the A. C. game is tne
main topic of discussion in basketball
A defeat of tho Farmers will bo
"balm" to the sore frames of Utah's
athletes, but tho Logan bunch has
practically a cinch on the state cham
pionship and should the A. C. come
through its remaining contests In good
shape arrangements will be In order
for the Rocky Mountain championship
series. The Aggies were scheduled to
play the B. Y. U. March 9, but tho two
colleges have been unable to get to
gether as yet and the contest is still
up in Uie air.
High School Race.
The preliminary games to determine
the high schools which will take part
in the state tournament at Logan,
March 6. 7 and S, havo nearly aH been
played and by tie beginning of next
week the contesting teams from all
sections will be definitely known.
L. D. S. and Tooelo will meet to
morrow afternoon In tho Granite gym
nasium to determine the representa
tive of the Salt Lake division in the
tournament L. D. S. Is a slight favor
ite, but the game is clouded with
doubt. The Saints went to the tourna
ment last year and are eager to make
tho trip again.
A gamo which should reach tho
height of basketball excitement is the
B. Y. U. high-American Fork game
Saturday night at Provo. The victor
ious team will play in the tournament
Either team should bo a strong con
tender for the state bunting, although
the American Fork bunch Is looked on
as a likely winner.
Davis County will play North Cache
tomorrow night and on the following
night will encounter Box Elder in

rancher, who is a headllner in the
middleweight division. The Suter-
Buzukos bout, which was scheduled for
Saturday night at Hlllyard, was called

Tho wrestlers clashed for an hour
without a fall and the referee called

SIX CATCHERS ARE
"Red" McKee and Clarence
Brooks Are Experienced
Men Youngsters Relied
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 27. The
Seals probably will not use more than
two catchers this year, as usual, but
Jerry Downs has signed six backstops
in the hope of getting two who can do
the work satisfactorily.
"Red" McKee, a man of big league
experience, is coming back. Clarence
Brooks is another catcher of experi
ence, and Downs took him because
men of experience arc hard to pick up
just at this time.
Bill Stevens, the burly boy who
helped out last fall when Baker and
McKee were hurt has been signed,
but he has been called up for exami
nation and he may be on his way to
an entirely different kind of a train
ing camp pretty soon. McKee and
Brooks will be depended upon as the
experienced men and Llewellyn and
Ritchie of San Francisco and Rowland
of Fresno are the youngsters who will
try out If McKee proves to be a real
topnotcher this year, then the young
sters will scrap It out with Brooks for
the other job.
Jocko Calvo and Herbert Hunter
may be lato in reporting. The club
has como to terms with Hunter and
transportation was sent him today.
Calvo usually plays ball in Havana In
the winter time, so he is ready to go
when he comes to this country, so
Manager Downs is not worrying about
his being a few days late.
John Hummel, former utility man of
tho Brooklyn club, is going to get a
trial with the Seals. He lives at
Springfield, Mass., and last year ho
was captain of tho Buffalo club in the
International league. Ho Is a right
handed hitter and a hard driver when
he lands solidly. He will be used in
the. outfield, but he can also fill In at
first and second base in a pinch.
"Spider" Baum will not go with the
troupe leaving her Sunday morning.
He Is working as a clerk at one of the
exemption boards and has to finish his
task before he can get away. He is in
Much is expected this year of Lefty
O'Doul, the young left-hander 'who

greatly from his year -In the Western
league, and he is expected to hop right
in and take the place of Red Oldham
this year. O'Doul has been playing ball
Chief Johnson and "Spider" Baum
will bo tho mainstays of the Seals In

SURVEY OF SCHOOL
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Feb. 27
Resolutions calling for tho appoint
ment of a commission comprised of
elementary school experts to survey
the present school system with the
idea of recommending radical changes
were adopted tonight by heads of the
elementary schools attending the con
vention of the department of superin
tendence, National Education associa

CHICAGO, Feb. 27. If there are
going to be .trades between tho Cni
cago Cubs and the St Louis Car
dinals they will be made hero tomor
row. President "Weeghman and Manager
Mitchell are here to listen to the talk
of President Rickey and Manager Jack
Hendricks. Wires from St. Louis
stated they were on their way to Chi
cago. St. Louis is to offer Catcher
Snyder and some other players, but If
the words of Weeghman are taken
seriously, nothing will please him save
Ho is willing to give Kllduff and a
large chunk of money for the short
stop. Fans Censure Willard.
Chicago fans today are censuring
Jess Willard and Fred Fulton ior their
stand against Jack Dempsey. The lat
ter knocked out Bill Brennan in six
rounds, moro than any other heavy
weight has ever done, and has shown
such remarkable work in the ring they
feel Fulton should recognize his abil
ity and accept a match.
They are censuring Williard because
he turned from his original statement
that he would meet the best available
man. In view of tho fact that Ful
ton's career is spotted with good and
bad fights and that Dempsey has de
livered, it is only just that Willard de
mand that these two men meet and
that ho select tho winner as his opponent.

Coach Jensen Puts Basketball
Team Through Work-out
for Game With U. of U.
LOGAN, Feb. 26. The Salt Lako
press is already proclaiming the Utah
Aggies champions of the stile In bas
ketball, but the Logan players them
selves, aftor hearing tho coach, "rave"
for an hour or so, havo almost come
to the conclusion that so far as the
championship is concerned they will
all havo to shown an Improvement of
100 per cent over their last game with
the B. Y. C. before any such exalted
glory can bo attained.
Their attitude during the last few
weeks has not been tho best and the
coach is now beginning to worry for
fear that tho players will not revive
their spirit for tho U gamo. However,
if past performances are any criterion,
the fans of Logan will sco a great bat
tlo when these traditional rivals meet
for their socond fracas of the season.
Tho recent "fuss" that the state In
stitutions were Involved In hag caused
moro feeling to be aroused, and for
this reason both teams have moro than
the usual victory to fight for.
Tho recent defeat of the Crlmson
itcs, administered by Coach Roberts'
trickery, will no doubt make tho sled
ding a little rougher for tho Aggies, as
the university will more than ever bo
determined to trim its blue-jerseyed
rivals. If the Salt Lakers can do this,
it will be a successful season for them.
In their opinion. On tho other hand,
tho Aggies now havo to consider the I
Provo players as strong contenders
for tho championship, although they
havo already lost two games. At the
rato thoy are now going, tho Aggies
will havo a hard tlmo to defeat them in
order to claim the championship, pro
viding, of course, that the teams come
to terms and play their regularly
The Aggies at present are slightly
crippled. Andy Mohr, guard, has been
confined to his bed the last three days,
and unless a change for the better
sets in, Coach Jensen may be forced
to play another man in the star's place.
Jarvis, the other guard, has also been
on tho crippled list for the last week
or so, and is not yet in the best of
condition. He was kept out of the B.
Y. C. game during the first half on ac
count of his injury. He has recovered,
however, and will tako his regular
position on the floor when the referee
blows the whistle for the initial toss
up. Student body rallies are being held
throughout the week, with the view of
stirring up more interest for the game.
On Thursday, regular student body
day, the Beno club will have charge of
the exercises and a lively time is
