ltev. T. T. Slackay. rector of All Saints
church and a member of the board- of
! trustees of All Salnta' Kplscopal church, ,
has been asked to open Peter Loch a
charity wrestling carnival at the Audi
torium the night of December 10 with iv
brief statement legardlng tho work of
the mission. Unless other work makes
It impossible for him to attend he will
accept the Invitation.
Pairings for the bis wrestllnc meet
have been made. by Mr. Loch and are as
Charlie PMcre. Papllllon, against Jo
Policeman Jenson, Omaha against Tony
George. Stash against Pat Cannon.
Pete Loch nguln 'Frank Coleman.
Jack Meyers against Adolph Ernst of
Kansas City, champion light heavy
Fred Mlndrn against Jack Tolllver.
j Champion Lishtwolght Keegan against
Vernon Hrcedlove. Council Bluff.', cham
Itaymond Hums ngaln.it Charlie nurns.
".lap" Tamlsea, Crclghton university,
against Jack Landour. Denver.
Farmer Hurns, who is as enthusiastic
about the carnival ns Loch himself, will
1 go on tho mat with an unknown, whose
i name probably will not be announced In
advance. The Farmer soys his Judgment
j won good when he picked Frank Gotch as
In comer and he thinks It Is still good when
he says the new man he will Introduce
will be heard from firvorabtr In tho fu
ture. The Farmer's Eons also will ap
pear at the carnival.
The seat sale opened auspiciously Sat
urday. Many purchasers said they were
going to take their wives to the carnival,
and It is likely there will bo more women
present than ever before attended an
event of tho kind in Omaha. Since there
will be In force n rigid rule that all
wrestlers must be In full dress, and since
no smoking will bo permitted the women
will bo free to attend without risk ot
finding anything offensive, even to the
