When Pembroke Agreed to
Go on Mat in Absence
of Shimkus
There Were Several Other
Interesting Matches
Last Night
For two hours, an audience that filled
Clan Gordon hall awaited the arrival
of Joe Shimkus, who was expected to
arrive in Barre last evening to meet
"Roughhouse" Joe Perelli, with whom
he waa matched for a finish bout, the
best two out of three falls to win the
content. Bhimkus, through some unex
plained means, failed to make an ap
pearance, so at 10 o'clock Bernard Pem
broke of Montpelier went onto the mat
with Perelli for a finish match.
Perelli secured the first fall with a
body scissors and an arm lock in nine
minutes and 40 seconds, and the second
in seven minutes and 4f seconds with a
body scissors and double wrist lock.
It was under the handicap of a cracked
rib that Pembroke clinched with Perel- j
li, and this Perelli took advantage of
by working incessantly for the body
scissor hold. Pembroke's injury pre
vented the breaking of this hold and
for this reason he was floored tjuic.ker
than if in normal condition. As it was,
he put up a hard tussle with the Ital
ian and made him sweat from head to
i foot in getting his two falls.
Before this match was begun, the
message from Al Lundatroni, known as
the "Swedish Marvel," which challenged
the winner of last evening, was read to
the audience. Should Shimkus refuse
to wrestle Lundstrom the management
assured the audience that Yelies, the
Js'ewport wrestler who failed to show
vip for a match in Montpelier two
weeks ago against Shimkus, is willing
to take on Ijiindstrom or Shimkus,
and as an insurance of his appearance
he has authorized Eli Bourdon of Clare
rnorit, N. H., referee of last night's
bouts, to put up a $100 forfeit. This
match wilf.be held in Clan Gordon hall
next Friday night, March 5, tho man
agement assuring the public that both
principals will be here in due time for
the affair.
While waiting for the train due at
the Barre Central Vermont station at
7:3.j, but which did not arrive until
10.-12, a number of preliminary wrest
ling bouts were staged. The first of
these was the most interesting, as the
participants were evenly matched in
weight and science. These were James
Greig and Edgar Beaulieu. Beaulieu
secured two successive falls, the first
with a double arm hold and body scis
sors, in five minutes and 50 seconds,
and the second in. t wo minutes and 15
seconds with a double wrist lock and
body scissors.
A rather peculiarly matched pair
next made their appearance, Charles
Clough, who declares he was middle
weight champion of the United States
2d cavalry in 15)13 and who weighs 158
pounds, came forth with Raymond
Mushier of Montpelier, a flyweight of
10.1 pounds. The odds were plain to
be seen, but were allowed to go on to
furnish amusement while hopes for the
arrival of Shimkus ut any moment
were expressed by the crowd. Moshier,
however, is somewhat of an acrobat,
and when matched with such a large
opponent was forced to use his acro
batic tactics to keep his shoulders from
the mat. Clough worked but little
with him and easily downed him after
five minutes' stalling.
Silvio Checchi next defeated Beau
lieu in three minutes and 10 seconds,
and Modesto Hiogua in rive minutes.
Perelli, after the bout with Pembroke,
then gave an exhibition with Checchi,
who is a promising young wrestler, for
10 minutes.
Some talk prevailed concerning big
matches wherMin tsuch men as Joe
St etcher and "Strangler" Lewis would
be brought to Barre. Mr. Bourdon, in
a conference after the match with one
or two men interested in sueh, declared
these wrestlers could lie procured if the
Barre opera house could be secured for
the staging of such bouts. Thus far
this year it has been impossible to
rent this place for wrestling bouts and
as there is no other place in the city
large enough to accommodate a crowd
that would wish to see such men per
form, the use of the opera house is in
evitable if such performances are to
be staged in this city.

dockers were reluctant to do the work,
but finally consented. None of the tier-

Law Allows Credits for Certain Contri
butions. The income tax law allows a per
son, in flouring' hi 1019 net income, to
take credit for contributions made dur
ing that year to organizations conduct
ing charitable, scientific, educational
and religious work; to societies for the
prevention of cruelty to children or ani
maln; also to the special fund author
ized by the vocational rehabilitation
Before claiming any deduction under
thia provision of the law a taxpayer
ahould carefully consider what is al
lowable. There should be no guess
work or eatimates or setting down a
lump sum, but the taxpayer should
show onlv the contributions as be made
them and aa he can vubstantiate them.
Care should be taken that amounts
given to individual!! are not included
and that the deduction is confined i
strictly to donations during the year
to organizations operated without bene
fit to the peraona behind the move
ment. For instance, a gift made to a
hospital which may bring profit to the
peraous interested in the institution
would not be a deductible item.
All donations , to churches are deduc
tible, including those for miasionary
fund!, church building fundi, pew rent
and church assessment and church
Political Contributions,
The taxpayer should be careful to
omit anv claim for contributions to
fund gathered for propaganda and po
litical purpose. Hie allowable dedue
tions are definitely limited by law to
organir.at ions operated exclusively for
charitable, scientific, educational or re
ligious purposes, for vocational relm
limitation and for the prevention of
cruelty to children and animals.
After listing his contributions of an
allowable nature, the taxpayer should
see that he does not claim an amount
over the limit established by law.
which is 15 per cent of the year's net
income, computed without the benefit
of this deduction.
Contributions may be made in cash
or other property; if other than cash,
the value of the property must he ac
curately determined. Subscriptions or
promise to contribute should not be
considered, the allowance providing
only for contributions actually made.
Members of a partnership may de
duct their proportionate share of the
partnership's contributions to such or
ganizations. Hut a partner is limited
to 15 per cent of his net income on his
total contribution deduction.
