Revenge Came After Waiting Forj
Three Years to Defeat j
That everything comes to those who
wait, was proved true last night when
the Franciscan girls after three years'
hard work at training and playing,
won a basketball game from the
Agathalatha girls, score 24 to 9. The
game was played on Cathedral hall
floor and attracted a large and en
69th teams played a good game, but
the AgathaJtha girls were unable to
locate the baskets. The passing of the
Franciscans was an interesting fea
ture. The guarding of Miss McCarthy
and Miss Caslnnan helped in the vic
tory. Miss Katherine Simonetti made
several brilliant shots from the floor.
Miss Kline was the best player forj
the Agathalatha girls. A return game i
will be played between the same teams l
on Cathedral floor March 10. The

j"Zeke" Wiegley Will
Manage Trenton Team;
Is Strongly Endorsed
Special to The Telegraph
I Philadelphia, Feb. 24.—Joint efforts
of William J. Morris, president of the
Trenton Tri-State Club, and George
iM. Graham, president of the league,
| yesterday bought a jnanager for the
[Timers in the person of "Zeke" Wrig
ley, who has sent more youngsters to
the big game than any former major
star in the business.
With Wrlgley at Trenton and "Izzy"
Hoffman In charge of Jteadlng, there
is likely to be a lively scamper after
promising material. Manager Connie
Mack warmly recommended Wrigley.
The new leader ig a Philadelphia
boy by birth. He first became promi-|
nont as a star in Fairmount Park, in
the days when the "Sparrows" were
turning out sucl; players as Bill Dono
van, Pat Meaney, etc. Wriglev's first
engagement was with the Washington
National League club. He also played
with Brooklyn in the big show. Later
Wrigley was at various times with Co
lumbus and St. Paul, in the American
i Association, and last year managed
| the Hamilton team.
I Wrigley is a second baseman or
I shortstop. He will probably play the
I latter position in the Trenton line-up
I this year. It is the plan of Manager
| Wrigley to make his home in Trenton.
Plank Will Sign
With the Athletics'
Special to The Telegraph |
Philadelphia, Feb. 24. Manager I
Connie Mack, of the Athletics, an
nounced yesterday that Eddie Plank, |
the veteran southfiuw, would again be |
.with the champions. Plank wired
jffom his home in Gettysburg that he!
would meet the squad leaving here i
March 7, at Baltimore. While the j
I Gettysburg citizen has not attached his :
j name to a contract for the coming,
season he assured Manager Mack that
.everything would be agreeably arrang-i
ed after they met in Jacksonville. |
Plank's determination to again face !
the American League batsmen this
year is a splendid piece of news for
tho followers of the White Elephants.
There is uncertainty regarding only
one department of Mack's team. This
Is as to the probable strength or weak
ness of the pitching staff. Under such
conditions, a veteran of such ability
as Plank is badly needed.
