Danno aloysius o'Ma honey. the Erin enigma, was as much of a riddle as ever today as far as his abil ity to wrestle was concerned. The possibilities of the Irish young ster as a pleasing performer were opened a bit by Rowdy Rudy Dusek last night at the Washington Audi torium, where Rudolph succeeded In losing after 16 minutes, but folks who want to form their own opinions about O’Mahoneys chances against Jeems the Londos and Ed Don George this Summer still faced the question, •Can O'Mahoney really wrestle?" j In sharp contrast to his initial lo cal appearance against Fred Grob mier, the clean-cut invader had to work up some perspiration last night, but It was Rudy, always the peerless showman, who worked hardest in what seemed to be a successful at tempt to "sell” the Irish youngster to Washington fans. It was Rudy, twice before a victim of Danno, who supplied the kerplunks and meller drammer so dear to the mat incur able’s heart, but it is not Rudy who blocks O'Mahoney's path to the •’title” which his supporters claim he will own ere the coming Summer is ended. Out of the West will come the ris ing Little Wolf, new Indian sensation. : to challenge Danno's claims, and then, of course, there is Londos and j George. And how Danno will shape up as a foe for either in a "shooting match" could not be determined last night. Fans For Dannc. EXCEPT that there was much more action, thanks to Dusek. there was not a great deal of difference between O'Mahonev's performance last night and his victory over Grob mier In his debut here. When Danno wanted things his way. he was in command of the veteran Dusek. who was backed by more than eight years of professional rassling to eight months for O'Mahoney. Sporting a new cauliflower ear—his first and probably the thickest hunk of mistreated cartilage adorning the side of s rassler's head—Danno. as usual, was on the defense when the heftles answered the whistle. Dusek. darting in and out of grab holds that were broken promptly by O'Mahoney, took a lacing in the early moments while 3,000 customers gave vent to brogue-tinted howls of glee. Long before he stepped into the ring here wtih O'Mahoney. Rowdy Rudy went on record as tagging Dan no the hardest elbow-«linger in the game and the lad from Erin did his best to live up to it. Taking the offensive after 12 minutes of action. O’Mahoney blasted Dusek's head with awkward elbow punches that were not confined always to the elbows. A skinned knuckle dripping blood bore mute testimony to that before Danno decided things had gone far enough. “Irish Whip” Scores Fad. WHEN it was apparent to Danno that Dusek was softened suffi ciently he Called on the “Irish whip” for the killing. It required two doses of the "whip.” a version of the flying mare, to finish the Nebraskan. Jack Donovan, a domestic Irishman from the Pacific Coast, kept pace with his imported colleague from Erin by ( destroying poor old Jean Le Deaux ' after 15Vi minutes of the semi-final— j but the third Irishman on the card, Pat McKay, did not fare so well. McKay's penchant for strangle holds finally reached a point where Jim McNamara, preliminary referee, j stepped in and awarded Sandor Szabo. j the handsome Hungarian, with a 17- 1 minute victory via disqualification. j Count Andre Dunaev. a Russian , gentleman, tossed Jack Brennan in | the only other bout decided by a fall. In the only draw of the evening, Andy Rascher and Dick Daviscourt were stopped after 30 minutes. JOHNSON STOPS BABRY. PATERSON, N. J.. April 12.—Don ald (Red) Barry of Washington, D.

ST. LOUIS, April 12.—Glove-sling ers from 16 cities in the United States proper and the outlying Territory of Hawaii were poised today for the 24 semi-final and titular final bouts tonight In the 1935 Ameri can amateur boxing championships, with the black threat still present In the heavy and light-heavy divisions dominated last year by Northern Negroes. Stanley Evans of Highland Park. Mich., king of the heavyweights in 1914. while his Detroit teammate, Joe Louis, was cleaning up the light-heavy class, dropped this year among the 175-pounders and marked himself as a standout by two knockout victories last night. Evans first punched Desso Debryant. Negro from Springfield. Mass . out of ! the tournament, then scored a syn ! thetic kayo over Hugh Rogers, Miami, Fla With Evans in the semi-finals of the light-heavy division are Leonard Bostick, another Negro, of St. Louis: Joseph Bauer.

Chicago, April 12.—swim ming expert*, one of the hardest lot In all sport to convince, pointed out 17- j year-old Katherine Rawls of Miami Beach, Kla , today and agreed: “There Is the greatest all-around woman swimmer In the world!” Katy, a grinning, boylah-looking mis* weighing only 107 pounds, con-, vinced them beyond their last linger ing doubt* last night when she streaked over the choppy waters of the Lake Shore Athelttc Club long ' course pool to victory In the 100-yard breast stroke, her third straight tri umph in the national women's In door swimming championships. And tonight Katy will attempt to do what no other swimming cham pion has ever accomplished—make it four straight by winning the 220-yard free style, feature race of the night's program. The Miami miss, who has been swimming almost from the day she crept out of the cradle, started her record-breaking surge Wednesday night by beating the Nation's fastest mermaids in the 100-yard free style and the 300-yard individual medley in the record time of 4:09.2. Last night, behind at the final turn and with de feat regarded almost a certainty, she made the large crowd stand on its feet as she swished over the waves with a dramatic finish to win thei 100-yard breast stroke from a field that included the world's record holder, Anne Govednik of Chisholm, Minn., who could do no better than finish third behind Dorothy Schiller ; of the home Lake Shore Club. Miss Rawls' performances easily clinched her the indiridual high point KATHERINE RAWLS. medal of the meet with 15 points, and gave her club, the Miami Beach S. C.,; the lead in the team championship race with 15 points. The Washington Athletic Club of Seattle was close be hind with 13 points, however, winning 10 of them tfith Its victory last night in the 400-yard relay in which Katy and her club were not represented.

Katy stayed out of the low-board diving competition last night, surrendering her title to Dorothy Poynton Hill of Los Angeles, who conquered her field with a total of 112.56 points.

C. team, composed of Mary Lou Petty, Betty Lea, Doris Buckley and Olive McLean, shattered Its own world record by 5.9 seconds by negotiating the distance in 4:15 3.
