White, With Broken Hand, Whips Azevedo Easiiy. All Chicago Games to Start At 3 p. m. Ladies' Day for Cubs. Hand it to Charlie White as one of the best lightweights now doing busi ness. The local lad is not a champion, and may'never scale the ladder to the top, but he stands shoulder to shoul der with any of the fellows but Rit chie. Literally with one hand White last night. -licked Joe Azevedo in ten rounds at Racine. In the. first frame Charlie cracked his right mitt, and for the ensuing nine -rounds he was forced to. do all of his walloping with a left. But it was some left. Wasplike, the good mitt nicced the Portuguese gent's defense and stung him vicious ly. White had his man continually covering up and blood was flowing freely. White ability to do business with the single mitt was uncanny. His right came into play for defense, but every blow was stuck on the end of that lightning left His best round was the first, when both his hands were in shape. Aze vedo was rushed off his feet and could not fathom White's style. The only round which went against the local boy was the eighth. On this mill White certainly bulges to the front rank of. the lightweights and Is probably the peer of any man who can actually make 133 pounds and be in condition to fight, It has been a long pull for him, as the critics are slow .to recognize home talent. But he has arrived. The, house was small and the purse light. White is now after another crack at Jimmy Duffy in Buffalo. Failing that, he may go to. the coast for a campaign before the McCarey and Coffroth clubs, where there is plenty of money to be had.

Last year the 2';3Qfiour .for start ing games did notf-work out to the satisfaction of the fans or owners. It was .too early for hundreds to get away from their wort and had an ef fect on the box office receipts. The only ball game played by a Chicago team yesterday was between the Sox seconds and San Francisco, the South Slders winning, 2 to 1, In 12 innings of light hitting and star pitching. Scott and ROgge-heaved for the Sox and .both turned loose a swell brand of dazzle stuff.
