of the tri-clties is the announcement
of the newly formed R. D. & M.

during the past week for the pur
pore of staging some first class mat

contains the names of some of the
leading business cjid professional man
of the trl-cities who are Interested in j
athletic contests more from the j
sportsman rather thsji the sports j
point of view. ,
Realizing that the sports of the
ttiee cities wanted to see and were
willing to pay for first class bouts the
tew club secured the services of a
man for matchmaker that knows the
mat game from every angle and they
promise that if at any t ime they stage
a show that is not satisfactory they
w ill refund the admission just as cheer
fully as It was taken. They announce
that the game will be open to all. No
one will be barred. They will play no
favorites, neither will they put on any
aniateurs for main events. No wrestler
with a real reputation will be turned
down and there should be eoine very
lively doings on the local mo: if this
policy is followed out. In all proba
bility shows will be sta.ged every two
weeks, if not weekly and it is tho in
tention of the club tc bring alt tbo
mat stars of the country here during
tbe winter. Roller. Zbyszko, Cutler,
Martinson and all the other big mat
men will be given a chance. A tenta
