New England Champion Wrestler Re
turns Home from Western Trip
Rows to Alan Eustace Only.
George 'Farmer" Bailey, the heavy
weight champion of New England, has
just returned fo his home .here from a
three-weeks' wrestling trip through the
West. At Denver, Col.f he wrestled
Cliff IJinckley two hours to a draw.
P.intkley is one of the hardest men to
lefeat in the game today. lie has twice
defeated Dick. Daviscourt and wrestled
a two-hour draw with Ed "Strangler"
Lewis. . . . , ' '; , . i; . .
At Arkansas City Bailey wrestled and
defeated Ivan Linow,- the Russian Cos
sack, in straight, falls.
In Topeka, Kans., deorge "got his"
for the- second time this . season. He
has wrestled 52 matches, and his only
other defeat was at the hands of Stan
islaus Zhyszko here last fall. .
His oppoent at Topeka was Alan
Eustace of Wakefield, Kan., who hopes
some day to don the world's champion
ship togs. In its report of the - .Eustace
Bailey match the Topeka Daily State
Journal said :
. "For a time last night it appeared
that the two wrestlers were evenly
matched. But ifc was only the power
ful strength of the New Englander that
was in evidence. Once the Kansan had
tested his opponent out he easily ap
plied the holds that forced Bailey to kiss
the mat with both shoulders. The first
hold, a body scissors and an arm-lock,
was applied in 31 minutes , and 00 sec
onds, and the second, a body - scissors,
came in 12 minutes and 30 seconds.
"The bout was easily the fastest and
best seen "in Topeka this season. The
"farmer" won himself a home with the
local fans bv his aggressiveness and sev
eral times had the Kansan in a tight
place. Once he had Eustace pinned to
the mat but before the referee could
reach down to ascertain what was going
on the hold was broken. Bailey was
game throughout but when it came to a
pinch his wonderful strength was no
match for the finer points of the game
as displayed by his Jayhawker oppon
ent. The fifth meeting between Stanislaus
Zbyszko, former world's champion wres
