It was this same George Turner who
appeared last evening as a substitute
for "Policeman" Gordon of Mlnneap
oils, in a catch-as-catch-can match with
the touted Zbyszko, the giant Pole,
who has been heralded as a demon
and the most formidable opponent of
Frank Gotch for the championship 01
the world, this of course through his
ability to stay an hour with Gotch ot
Buffalo, X. Y., tvo weeks ago and :o
pin the shoulders of several third
raters to the mat in recent exhibitions.

However, Zbyszko bit off just a lit- i
tie bit more than he could chew whAi
he attempted to throw Turner twice
in 45 minutes before a crowd of sev

I bpam at 23G pounds, while Turner
weighed in at 199, but the latter'3
speed enabled him to keep the big

Several times Zbyszko had Turner ul!

The decision was received witK

the outcome and who threatened all
sorts of things. It ended with a
challenge by Zbyszko to Turner for a
straight match, and the latter In

date has been set
The affair was staged M an elBrt
to revive the wrestling game in the
three cities, but it was a bad start.
Zbyszko was overrated to commence
with, Packy Mcarland failed to put in
his appearance as referee of the main
bout and John Voss of Rock Island
had to substituted. Gordon of Minne
apolis also failed, but Turner was more
than satisfactory as a substitute.

Yet those who staged the affair must
be given credit for bringing Zbyszko
to the tri-cities, as his showing afford

match with Champion Frank Gotch.
The only preliminary was a bout be
