Dundee and White Fight Tonight
Sunday Ball" in Lincoln Park. .
; Johnnie Dundee, the New York
battler, who fought Johnny Kilbane
. to a standstill for the featherweight
i championship, makes his real debut
as a lightweight in Los Angeles to-
night. The fight is of particular in-
;, terest here, as Jack White, a well-
thought of local boy, is to be Dun-
( dee's opponent,
j The men will fight at catch
l weights, but each will be under the
lightweight limit. Dundee practically
I fought his way to the top of the
feather ladder, and when there were
I no more men to battle .he took on
J weight and prepared for the light
weights. If he can get the verdict
j over White he will probably be given
r a shot at Ad Wolgast.
Carl Morris, the original white
, hope, put Fred McKay away in the
i third round at Winnipeg last night,
; and almost acted like a fighter whle
i doing it. Morris judged distance well
and timed his blows accurately. A

' Billy Niesen, the semi-pro manager,
newly appointed superintendent of

and for the second from 4 to 6.
Rube Schauer, the sensational
pitcher of the Superior, Northern

I -If any one three months ago had
prophesied the time would come this
season when the Sox would be up
against it for pitchers he would have
been hustled off to the insane court,

been verified.
Three months ago Russell had
made good emphatically. He was an
added starter in a large and suppos
edly competent field, made up of
Cicotte, Scott, Benz, Walsh, White,
Lange and a few recruits. The com
bination looked like the best aggre
