One morning, while feeding the press, his rtgnt nand —the same hand that knocked out Joe Riv ers and out-imnched Abe Attell — was caught between the rollers. Only the prompt action of a fel low feeder, who stopped Ktlban's press, saved Johnny's hand from being crushed. Kilbane's n««t Job was as a dock hand.
