JOE RIVERS MARRIED TODAY Eios Angeles, March 1.-sloe Rivers, the Mexican lightweight pugilist be-cam? a benedict today. His bride was Pauline Slert,' a native Californ la&i.of Mexican descent.

The articles have been signed an'd sealed, the weights arranged, and the "split" of the dough adjusted to the satisfaction of everybody concerned. AU that remains is for the boys to climb through the ropes, and start things. This interesting event is scheduled for,.Madison Square Gai'den next Fridaynight, and it goes without saying that the immense arena will be packed to the doors with loyal fans who ,have long been rooting for this clever pair to settle their differences. * ^ * * ' Local critics are at last forced to admit Kilba'ne is a "real champion." Johnny's display of form when he stopped George Klrkwood, the hard hitting St. iLouis featherweight; so impressed' the experts that they are now ready to concede him. a chance when he boxes Johnny Dundee in Loa Angeles in the near future,    , To my way of thinking Kllbane's victory over Kirkwobd does nq^ stamp him as a 'worthy holder pf the featherweight title. Not that it lowers him in my estimation as a greM isdjcer, but because Klrkwood had ^emonstrajed in recent contests thai he was on the down grade. Only-a few "weeks ago he boxed Ted'dy Hubbs, a yo^sngster from Pittsburg, and Was given a thorough ti'ouncing for ten r^unds^ So I KlIbaniE!'^: perform with IJuijdee, and,;^ more^f lDipressfve-%t, with ICirkiwobd,, or T'J m?no Jiidge. Still: it was_ his,failure toffetop those lads, that started the logil critics on his trail. Dundee and O'Keefe are both clever boys, that is asv.comparedwith Klrkwood, whose chief claim to fame has rested on his ability to put over a knock-out punch every now and again. As a boxer Kirkwoodldoesnot^^amount 10 much.  *  * , A champion has his workout put to I please everybody. The'troiibli is-too ,*mnch Is'invariably expected of'him.
