BASEBALL ALL THE SPORT DOPE BOXING
Dundee Shades Jack White Leach
Cross to Fight Way East
Johnny Dundee got the decision
over Charlie White at the end of 20
rounds of milling in Los Angeles last
night, but the Chicago lad has noth
ing to be ashamed of. The margin
by which he lost -was very slight
The battUng was terrific through
out the twenty rounds. At the end
of the sixteenth the boys were on
even terms, as White had forced the
fighting in his slam-bang style and
.carried the tusshng to Dundee. In
the seventeenth the New Yorker ral
lied, and from then on drew ahead of
White's failure to show a hay
maker was a disappointment to his
friends. He was able to land on Dun
dee frequently and though the blows
stung there was not the expected
power behind them.
Dundee will now be matched with
Harlem Tommy Murphy, the bout to
take place on the coast about the
middle of July. White Is willing to
take a crack at Champion Johnny
Kilbane, but coast promoters do not

Leach Cross is planning for a big
financial clean-up if he is victorious
over Bud Anderson in their twenty
round go July 4. Leach will not stay
on the coast being unable to stand
a long absence from his own New
York, where the picking is good in
ten-round bouts. On his way East,
however, he will break the monotony
of the trip with several fights. The
only one actually arranged at pres

sas City. If Cross beats Anderson he
will have no trouble getting engage
ments. Maybe baseball players are not the
only-guys who don't write the stuff

Heinle Zim does not like to work
in hot weather. Therefore he is
kicking himself out of the game al
most daily. Five times in the past
week the Cub third baseman, has
been chased, four times by the um
pires and once by Manager Evers.
Zim appears to start the after
noon's work with the deliberate in
tention of not finishing. If no good
excuse comes up for a kick he seizes
a bad one. Zim is apparently dis
gruntled at something or some one
in authority on the West Side. When
he is in the game he gives his best
efforts and is fielding and batting at
a good clip. But the German doesn't
stay in enough. He and Art Phelan
are almost evenly dividing the third
