It was a wouderful match and It

Both men used their beads. lagpinR)
at times to deceive the opponent and,
then coming with a tremendous rush ;
They were as wily, tricky, fierce and I
at times as cruel as panthers, yet lt
was a clean match with no sugges

Yokel won both falls with the same
hold which Referee Ben Harker pro-!
nounced a reverse bar and bead chnn- j

47 minutes 10 seconds The second!

After the second fall Gehrlng rush-i
ed to the footlights held up his hands'
and when two minutes of chetrlnc
mingled with hissing ceased he cried
They put resin on the mat. It was
a dirty, mean trick.''

because it had been used for box

him as Gehring.
It was n representative audience,

business men, church dignitaries and
Others rubbed shoulders. The cheer

for granted after the first fall was
Tbe athletic entertainment began
promptly at S.I.V when a strong man
known as "The Great Morton'' lift
ed a barrel of water said to weigh
600 pounds. Following this was a
2i minute wrestling bout between
Ray Met arroll of, Idaho Falls and
Danny Keith, the fireman. It was a
Gehring came on the stnpc nt ' 20
o clock and was given a rousing re
ception. Yokel arrived a minute later
and the Cheering was not much loud
er than that which had been given
James A A. Stanley the announe
l er, introduced Referee Ben Marker
and performed the same office for
both w r - i l r-
Stanley then explained that Gehr
ing had forfeited $200 rather than
weigh In as he agreed to do at 3
o'clock in the afternoon. Gehring
did not dispute the statement that
his weight wn:; a secret He weigh
ed between 162 and 16j pounds.
( hallenges to wrestle the winner
were read from Harberison, Turner
and a number of others.
Yokel ami Gehring were culled to
ihc renter of the ring and were In
structed by the referee.
Tbey grappled at exactly 9 SO
o'clock. Both were cautions and ap
peared to respect the caliber of the
toe. It was almost ten minutes be
fore Yokel got behind Gehring for a
moment, but the Buckeye grappler
easily broke away.
When they had been going fifteen
minutes Gehring made R quick dive
for Yokel s ankles ami he tried thlB
expedient a score of times during the
first bout vvtlhout once succeeding
in getting hold of Mike's underpin
ning. Both men seemed to realise
they were m for a long, gruelling con
test and appeared to be conserving
Gehrings long reach showed to
great advantage From the very first
he began putting one hand over Yo
kel's eye and passed the other back
and fourth before Mikes face,
hoping to mar his judgment
of distance After Gehring fan
cied he had Yokel bewildered by
these methods he would dive for Yo
Yokel was aggressive from the start,
but during the firet 45 minutes he
was cautiouslj aggressive Gehring
amazed the fans by the ease with
whlch he broke loose from holds that
seemed to be dangerous, but Yokel
showed the same ability
Before the first hour elapsed Yokel
had shown more head work and gen
eral cleverness than In any other
match he ever wrestled. Fans wer
surprised to see that he was just as
quick as Gehring and the widely her
alded Clevelander did not stem to
have any tricks that were new to Yo
kel. Just before the hour expired
Gehring assumed ihe aggros -a: e .-' t
ling behlud Mlko and making things
very lively for a moment or two.
From then on until five minutes
before the first fall the honors were'
even, although It could be seen that
Gehring was tiring much faster than
Yokel The westerner seemed to pos
sess more real muscle and had a
trick of twisting Gehring half round
and tossing him several feet away,
that amused the fans. On these oc
casions Gehring looked Mike over du
biously, apparently wondering bow so
much power could be Inclosed in so;
I small an envelope.
fter one hour and fortj minutes of
wrestling Gehnng was getting very
tired For 15 minutes preceding this
he was noticed to go down easier and
Ins legs seemed to drag There was
none of the springiness or playfulness
1 that he exhibited earlier Ills face,
was drawn and lined
Yokel. Impersonating the cn.e man
type, seized the Buckeye, hurled him
to the mat and tried a half nelson
Gehring got out of this with some
difficulty and was just beginnlug to
breathe easier when Mike clapped
on a hammer lock and in a trice al
most had Gehring on his back. One
hold followed another with such ra-
j pldtty that everybody. Including Geh
ring was bewildered Yokel's clever
change of tactics and his amazing
speed comprised as clever work as
has ever been seen here or elstwhere,
perhaps. Mike closed this series of
surprises with a reverse bar and head
chancery and Gehring. who had slid
out of so mnnv dangerous predica
ments in the last hour and three
quarters, was compelled to yield. Mis
shoulders were pinned flatly on the
mat and Yokel apparently could have
held him ihTr Indefinitely
Pandemonium broke loose when the I
fans saw Referee Marker slap Yo
kel's back in token of victory. The I
cheering lasted fully two minutes and
only died down because the funs were
eager to tell one another what a great
man Yokel was.
Dr. C. G. Plummer, who was slt-
ting with Timekeeper Callahan, sawi
ihe end of this first fall with great re
lief, not only because Yokel Is his;
protege, but because he feared that,
Gehring might strain his heart so he(
would never recover. The surgeon's
practiced eye had noted the contrac
tion of the muscles of chest and ab
dr rneii and he was afraid Gebri n : s
admitted gamencss might cause phys
This went on for half an hour, with
Yokel always on the aggressive and
Gehring only occasionally appearing
to take the defensive. Then after
minutes of wrestling in the second
bout, Gehring suddenly dropped his
pose. He went after Mike like a
whirlwind The fatigue seemed to
have dropped from him. Me picked
Yokel up. 6tood him on his head,
pounded bis head on the mat a half
dozen times and tried to crush hlmt
to the floor Mike's great neck raus-l
cles resisted the onslaught M- did
a head spin, but Gehring grabbed him
round the body and flung him to the I
floor violently. Before Mike could
recover his equilibrium Gehring al- '
most had a head scissors In fact,
he rolled Mike onto his back and !
if he i ould only have held him there,
and applied a little force at that mo
ment. Gehring would have evened up
the falls, but Mike was too speedy
Me bounded like a rubber ball and '
was as elusive as an eel Gehring.
still trying for the fatal scissors, bore
his whole weight on Mike and tried
to crush him down, but the resllieno
of Yokel was wonderful. It was slm-,
ply impossible to get his shoulders
to the mat
Presently, with 8 tremendous ef-'
fort. Yokel escaped from this, the i
closest call of the whole match for
him. Me looked a trifle flustered b ll
this soon gave Wffy o anger Mike

to reach for their hats, because they

DEFI TO WOLGAST
Efforts at matching Dud Anderson
and Ad Wolgast for St. Patrick's Cay
have been rebuffed by Wolgast w ith ,
the request that Anderson go out I
and make a reputation. Manager
Donald, upon hearing this, made a
counter proposition to the former
champion Instead of offering a side
bet of big proportions on the general
result. Donald oflered Wolgast an
even money w ager of $2u u io that
Anderson would stop him Inside of
"Wolgast knows that Anderson is
his master and that he Is the most
dangerous llchtweight in the world
todav," said Dona'd. "The cry of 'go
get a reput3tion' is a chestnut The
thousand dollars i8 behind Anderson,
and thai should he reputation enough
for any of the lightweights vho think
they csn whip mv boy! Wolgast or
any other lightweight can win that
sum bv whipping Anderson, Besides
I will bet Wolgast $20,000 even money
that Anderson will stop him in six- ,
teen rounds any time they meet.'
Donald and Anderson ?re over at
Catdllna for a few days and upon
their return they will take a cottage
at Venice, where thev will live in
ease until time to open their training

March 4 date for Anderson and says
he is going to hound the big four In

comes across with a match for Anderson.
