Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDOE Monday, Number 2J RUSSIAN LION SUCCEEDS GOTCH Champion Has Retired :and Hackenschmidt is Conceded the Best of Mat Artist Left Chicago, Nov. Hacken- echmidt, popularly known as 'the Rus- sian -Lion, has been conducting his training in the gymnasium of one -of the police stations of Chicago, and has had as his -.raining partners some the toughest and best known of the American grapnlers. No description better fits Hacrcertschmid't than, the statement is an enlarged edition 'of Fred Beell. "Where Beell weighs about 16S pounds, the weight of Hackenschmidt is arourid 220 pounds. Every move the bigr foreigner makes is a counterpart of the little American grappler; whom CALGARY BOWLERS COMING designates as the fast- est mars in the Tvorlfl. Hack's develop- ment is Jdinost identical with BeelFs, and .there is even a facial resembl- ance.

There is a whole lot in this, considering, that, a large part of his professional "career has been spent in He has! manners the music hall of London, been dealing with English and American requirements. With the retirement of Frank Gotch it is difficult to see where an oppon- ent is to be found for Hackenschmidt who can give him a hard contest. Re- lative to both Frank Gotch and George Hackenschmidt there seems to be no disposition on the part of either one .to criticize the other. There is no rea- son to speculate on what the outcome of another match would be. It is well known that Frank Gotch has wanted to retire for more than two years. Frank has grown weary of the padded circle, and he has wjsely settled down te.ttes of Calgary .b.owlers will shortly visit Lethbridge for a. friendly series with local men, -according to H. A. R. Macdonald, president of the Leth- Dridge "league. Mr. Macdonald spent Saturday night and Sunday in Calgary. While there he met Capt Jim Mitchell of the Calgary Caledojiians, Smith and McCutcheon of the same team, and Lief of the Wanderers. The boys were all pleased with, the invitation to visit Lethbridge, and the -word has been i that the .-hoys "will a an early and convenient date.'

At the league meeting to- night a number of important topics will come up discussion, chief among them being the proposal to make it a six team league instead of four, and to draw up a new schedule superceding "the present one, which expires on Friday night with.the game between the Bronchos and Indians.
