Betting is light on the Kilbane-
Dundee featherweight championship
bout in Los Angeles tonight, but the
few wagers made show Kilbane a
prohibitive favorite. The two little
men were down to weight this morn
ing and neither will be weakened by
having to undergo the enervating
"drying out" process. Kilbane has
not been active in the ring recently,
but should win. Dundee has a baf
fling style of milling, however, and
will not be an easy mark.
Bob Moha's middleweight cham
pionship light was dimmed by Jack
Dillon in Milwaukee last night The
Indianapolis battler pummeled Moha
at will, belting him all over the ring.
Moha made a game stand in the
eighth round, but it was' his final
flash. Only remarkable gaineness
saved him from a knockout in the
last two frames. As a result of the
bout, Milwaukee promoters are
boosting a go between Dillon and
either Eddie McGoorty or Billy
Matt Brock, the Cleveland feather,

Leading the league with two and a
halt weeks of the season gone is fame
that was undreamed of at the start
of the season. Evers is not bossing
a gang of youngsters. With the ex
ception of Saier and Zim, there is
not a callow youth on the regular
team. Experts (so-called) at the start
of the season figured this would be
a handicap in the early stages of the
campaign and that the men would be
slow to round to conditions'
But there is not a team in either
league in' better physical trim right

proper methods of conditioning,
