Sox Home Tomorrow With Yanks
Cubs Get Usual Start.
Johnny Dundee flashed into the
lightweight sky in a blaze of glory
last night in Los Angeles, putting
Jack White of Chicago away in the
ninth round with a series of dazzling
From the start of the mill Dundee
went out in front and quickly evi
denced his superiority, lunging
through White's guard as early as the
third round, when a stiff right to the
mouth sent the local lad back sev
eral feet From then on White fought
with defeat staring him in the face,
and, though he battled gamely, Dun
dee slowly wore him down by trip
The finish was not an actual
knock-out, Referee Eyton not taking
the trouble to count. It was a clean
victory. In the ninth Dundee opened
with a straight right and White sag
ged. Dundee duplicated the blow and
Jack slipped to the floor.. He climbed
groggily to his feet, but Eyton was
holding Dundee's hand up as a token
of victory. "It was no longer a con
test," declared the referee.
Dundee, on the reputation he made
as a featherweight and the showing
in his fight with White, is now after
Ad Wolgast for the Admission Day

Great credit is due the White Sox
for the fast finish they made on the
Eastern trip just completed, copping
three games out of four from the
aspiring Athletics. But we don't be
lieve Connie Mack is a whole lot wor
ried as a result of the upset his team
A whole raft of experts are crying
that the Mackmen are in a slump and
are in danger of losing the top of
the ladder to the Cleveland Naps.
Perish the thought. Mack loses to
the Browns and Sox, but when the
Naps come along, and opportunity to
get to the front is in their grasp,
