DOES THE STUNT
Three Falls From William Aid
.rich in an Hour.
FIRST IS THE HARDEST
Taking 21:30 Wants
Carl Busch, the German wrestling
champion, found no great difficulty in
winning his handicap match with Wil
liam Aldrich of , Galesburg, last even
ing at the Illinois theater. Busch, ac
cording to the terms, was to throw
Aldrich three times in an hour, or for
feit his end of the purse. He had the
most difficulty iu securing the first
fall, which he won in 21:1-2 minutes,
but he won the second in 10 minutes,
and the third in 15 minutes, making his
aggregate time for the three falls
46:30. Aldrich naturally made his en
tire effort i'oi time; rather than play
ing on the aggressive, and in the first
fall it seemed that he might be able
to keep himself off the mat long
enough to more than cover the hour.
He was on his feet at every opportun
ity, and played a clever game to delay
the bout. He proved a worthy oppo
nent for the German under the terms,
and slipped away from many embar
rassing positions which seemed cer
tain to put him on his back. Busch
was puzzled at first by Aldrich's tac
tics of evasion, but after a time found
the weak spots. The German employ
ed more leg clutches than usual, and
to good advantage.
The superior strength of Busch
stood him will, and had Aldrich been
a bit stronger, he might easily have
turned the tables on the German.
Busch was cpparently the more clever,
too, for he several times allowed Aid
rich to gain a seemingly advantageous
position for oifensive work, and with a
sudden turn threw Aldrich into a de
fensive position from which the Gales
burg champion found it difficult to ex
AViH Take Greek On.
At the close of the match Aldrich
announced that he had no excuse to
offer, that he simply was out of his
class against Busch. He stated it to
be an error that his weight was 178
and that as a matter of fact he is
much lighter. Busch stated his own
weight at IrS, and offered to wager
that he would tip the scales at that
figure. Aldrich claimed his weight at
Busch stated that he is ready at any
time to meet Demetral, the Greek. .in
either of the three cities. He express
ed regret that the wrestling matches
he has been putting on at the Illinois
here and in the theater in Moline have
not met with better favor among the
sporting element. The matches have
been excellent, exhibitions of the wrest
ling game, and have been worthy of
more attention' in sporting circles.
(iooil Preliminary Given.
An interesting preliminary was af
forded last evening in two falls in
which Robert Anderson and Emil
Spoerey, both members of the Moline
Athletic club were the opponents
Anderson won the first fall in 9 min
utes, and Spoerey took the second in
8:05. The men did not go on for the

Another change . will take place at
the Book Concern Jan. 1, when Rev.
C. J. ,Sodergren of Burlington, Iowa,
will become editor-in-chief of the
Young ' Lutherans' Companion, the
synod's - English weekly publication.
Rev. Sadergrcn succeeds Rev. O. V
Holmgraiu, who has edited the Com

gren has edited the "Home Circle" de
partment of the Companion for some
time and has achieved such success
that the board of directors at their
last meeting chose him as editor-in
chief of the publication. He will not
remove to Reck Island, however, but
will edit the weekly from Burlington
where he is pastor of the Messiah
Lutheran church. He was formerly
professor of Christianity at Augustana
college, but was forced to .resign on
account or poor health. He was re
cently "recalled to fill that position, but
did not accept.

Besides appearing on- the lecture

Not a change was made in the
standing of the various teams In the
Tri-City Bowling league as the result
of the games played last evening on
the different alleys in this city and
Moline. The Boosters and the Inde
pendents had three good matches at
the Harms alleys, in which the latter
won two of the games. The game
which the Boosters won was one of
the most closely contested games of
the season, as the winners had only
two pins the best of the losers at the
end. The standing of the Independents
dropped from the 800 section to the
700 section, but their lead is still
large, and they are not worried as to
the final standing. The scores last
evening were as follows:
Houston 150 i9

The Pirates of Davenport took three
