pages with stories about fishing,
camping and floating along in a
canoe with the "only, only" sitting
propped up in one end on a pile of
cushions, while you propel the craft

If Johnny Kilbane, featherweight
champion, doesn't take on a real

Cleveland battler was fought to a
draw by Johnny Dundee in his last
fight, and many of the wise owls at
the ringside declared the New York
boy was a lot better than Kilbane.
Evidently Kilbane doesn't like the
Dundee game. He passed up a re
turn match, and Dundee was forced

he is a fighter. He saves and invests
the coin he earns with.his fists, and

When he trekked into Chicago from
California last month the only thing
about him that looked like a ball
player was his uniform. And even
that looked like the canvas to cover
a three-ringed circus. Big Jeff "was
large, even for his name.
He worked out daily and removed
some of the fat Then he got a chance
against Cincinnati. The Red stepped
on his neck, flayed him with their
bats; and Orvie was hustled to the
dug-out after lasting seven innings.
