Charley White, the local light
weight will have a chance to show
what he can do in a high-class bout
Oct. 6 when he meets Johnny Dun
dee in Racine.

year resulted in a decision for White
in ten rounds. That was before Dun
dee made his grand fight against Kil
bane. Dundee is now a full-fledged

fighter. If White can again get the
yerdict there will be no question of
his abihty to cope with the best men
in his division.

and Carthage were battling for a
championship, the leading dopester
of the league made a crack to the
