Beginning of "Kid Whitey" 11 Sep 1917 Winnipeg Tribune
THE matching of "Kid" Whitey to fight Clonic Tait at Lethbridge is a big joe and, if it goes through, will be another another case of an unwise promoter putting one over on the fans. Whitey has done remarkably well for a beginner but is still a very raw mitt artist. He Is game but hasn't any science and this can only be acquired by contests in the ring. It is true that Whitey beat Abe Mantell, but Abe was like a pudding. He was not in shape and only stalled through the eight rounds. It wasn't Whitey's fault that Abe was not in trim, but the bout serves to further show that he is not any match for Tait. When Mantell was barely able to stand the Kid kept rushing at him like a wild man and had no idea of how to stop Abe. Tait is a clever clever boy and ' is altogether too much for the inepenenced but willing Whitey. There will be something wrong if Whitey stays more than three rounds with the Canadian champion.
