Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1915 THE LETHBR1DGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE Damon Kimyan in the Now York American, lolls tlio following about Joe Stctcher, who wants to meet Cotch Vousouf Ilussaue, the Turk wrest- ler, and Jack Curley, 'his manager, have returned from Lincoln, Neb., where Hussane was beaten 'on Thanks- giving Day by Joe Stetchcr, the new Western' mat" marvel. Stetcher won in two straight (alls, devoting about four minutes to the subject of the the first time and slightly more than.for tiie second fall. When interrogated about the mat- ter up in Gurlcy's office, Ilussane walked the floor, flailing the air above his head with his arms. "Oh-o-o-o, I am so nervous 1" he said. Somediiigs it happens. I. do not know. No Yes 1 am so nervous I-lussanc, he is de- feat in nine minyutcs. What a busi- ness is this I It better was that I be drunk. I could not have done worsor. Xjne minyutcs Hussane Oh-o-o-o! -i am so nervous Not Recovered "He hasn't quite recovered said Curloy. "Stetchcr got him with n scissors hold for the first hold with tlie two legs around the body which tiie has per- fected to murderous efficiency. The second time Hussane got behind him, and was working on him, when sud- denly one of Stetcher's ham-like hands shot out, grasping Ilussane around -the wrist, and threw him around iu the air. Jt was all over so quickly that I could scarcely realize what had happened. As for you see him." "1 am so said Hussane, walking the floor. "Hussane is a good wrestler, and had you told me any man iu the world could throw him twice in nine minutes I'd have laughed at continued Curley. "This Stetcher is the greatest wrestler I've ever seen. In my opinion, he is the greatest anybody .has ever seen. If ever he meets Ootch. and he probably will within the next year, out around Omaha, I'm going to bet all I can beg or borrow on Stetcher." "I should shoost as well he drunk; I could not liave done in- sisted Hussane. Joe is a Farnwr "Steteher is twenty-three years old, and was born and raised in the little town of Dodge, re- sunied Curley. "I never heard of Dodge before in my...lite, until I heard of Stetchcr, but T am that an- other of our American great wrest- lers, Clarence Whistler, came from t'.iere. I always thought he originat- ed in.Baltimore, but it seems not, "Stetcher never had "a wrestling lesson in his life. All he knows about ihe game he has picked up himself, and li: he can .beat Crotch, as I -think he can, it will be one of the most wonderful accomplishments in the history of wrestling. "Stctcher is not an exceptionally big fellow, being oS medium height and weighing about, 190 pounds, hut he is amazingly strong and fast on tiic mat. All liis preliminary 'wrest- -lini; was done with his brother and sister out on the farm. They.tell me his sister can.easily throw the aver- age .wrestler..' "The scissors hold apparently came natural to' Stetcher, hut he has per- fected it in many 'ways. When he trains he lakes a big sack stuffed full of wheat and straddles, it, bringing the pressure of his legs to bear upon it until the bag bursts. I've heard it said; that he used to straddle cows and horses, and crumple them by the terrific pressure of his limbs; hut 'this story sounds a bit iar fetched. "Stetcher lias never wrestled an exhibition." When he steps on the mat he is out to win, and hi! wins so it really isn't much of a show.. He has thrown eight men in severity-eight minutes in his last eight falls." MOBAN LEADS PHILLIES i-FOR NEXT THREE' YEARS Now York, Dec, Moran will manage.the Phillies, for three years more.

Fulton, although credited -with knocking Willard down in an ex- hibition bout some time ago, is not conceded to have a chance with the champion. He lacks.ling experience, although possessing size and hitting power. Willard, according to best in- formed critic's, knows too much about the game for his opponent and should win inside the limit. The fact that he once floored Willard is nothing to commend him. Fans will remember that or.ce Jack Monroe give Jim Jef- fries a warm time-for four rounds in a Butte ring, and when they 'were matched for a twenty-round altair Jeffries won before the fans were comfortably seated. The WillardTFul- ton affair may be a Jeflriesjilonroe bout all over again. Darcy WIN Meet Winner The arrival of Les Darcy, the sen- sational Australian middleweight, in America, promises to stir lot of interest in this division. He has beaten all of the best hoys in Aus- tralia and a couple of the topnotch- ers who journeyed "down under" to meet the Antipodean. When Darcy ar- rives here he will probably he match- ed Mike Gibbons and Young Ahearn. The latter pair will come together next month and the winner will get the first call for a bout with Jack Kearns' protege.

BOWLING DOMINION ALLEYS Baicmertt Dominion Building EntrjnM on Sixth Street PETER JACKSON JACK JOHNSON HAD MET The well-known English referee-, Mr. Oorri, appetite worthy of such -a great sportsman in his in- troduction to a description of the Peter Jackson-Frank Rlavin contest, in which he says: "If only'it had been possible to have brought. Peter Jackson ''and 'Jack' Johnson ,'togethor we should have 'seen a gigantic bout between two of the greatest expon- ents of boxing .who ever it 'is true, but great boxers, none the less." It is a regret which must surely be shared by every fol- lower of the sport; and pity 'tis that either Jackson died too soon or that Johnson was torn, too late to. admit the staging of a contest which would surely have aroused Olympus from its long sleep. It would have undoubtedly been a great fistic battle between two clever dusky giants, their prime at the same period. Lo- cal experts are much inclined to favor Jackson aa the winner of such a com- bat, it It were possible, with his su- perior skill and ring generalship; for Peter was certainly one of tlie great- est heavyn clghls ever seen. ill the roped arena.
