Jack Reynolds Has
Some Questions to
. v Ask Young Pesek
When Young Pesek arrives in
Omaha totiay for his match with
Adam Kruger in one of the prelimi
nary bouts at the Auditorium tonight,
he will be asked to answer a few
questions by Jack Reynolds.
Bills advertising a wrestling match
at Silver Creek, Neb., Monday night
announce Young Pesek will meet
Jack Reynolds. As Reynolds knows
nothing of the match he wants to
know why it's so advertised and who
is using his name.
"I'll wrestle Pesek and be tickled
to death to do it," said Reynolds,
but it won't be in any preliminary
bout for a $10 note. Nobody said any
thing to me about wrestling at Silver
Creek. I suppose it's some dub using
my name. Nothing would suit me
better than to meet Pesek, although
I don't believe there's much chance,
for I think he'd shy if he saw me
coming through the ropes." ,

fifth of a second behind the Notre

race last Saturday, it is believed here
that the banner will now be awarded

STAGE IS ALL SET
FOR BIGMAT CLASH
Marin Flestina and Jack Taylor
to Battle in Omaha for
LARGE CROWD EXPECTED
Marin Plestina, Omaha's .candidate
for the wrestling title, and Jack Tay
lor, Lincoln's representative, clash to
night at the Auditorium in a finish
The fate of each grappler hangs in
the balance of tonight's bout. If Ples
tina is the victor he will wrestle
Joe Steelier here on July 4. If Taylor
wins he will probably wrestle Steelier
either here or in Lincoln. And the
winner will also be a logical opponent
for Earl Caddock. The one who loses
will practically have lo start all over
Plestina is in the proverbial pink of
condition. He weighs 215 pounds
without an ounce of superfluous flesh
on his body. He declares he is ready
to wrestle all night if need be.
Taylor is also in the finest possible
shape. He tips the scale at a little
over 200 pounds.
Both men are confident of victory.
The advance sale of seats indicates
a large crowd will witness the event.
A good many Taylor supporters are
coming up from Lincoln to see the
fray. There has been very little bet
ting on the outcome, although it may
pick up today when the Lincolnites
arrive. What wagers have been made
have been at even money.
The program starts promptly at 8
o'clock. The four preliminaries will
be run off in an hour and the main
bout started at 9 o'clock, so that the
entire show will be over by 11 o'clock.
This is done so the mat fans can
join in the celebrations at the hotels
The preliminaries are as follows:
Chris Jordan, Omaha, against Fred Mor
mlre. Courtland. Neb.
Jack Reynolds, Omaha, against Touns
Muldnnn, parts unknown.
Young Pesek, Shelton, Neb., against Adam
Ralph Madsen. seven-foot-four, against Al

Goes to Pen for Staging Wild Ride
On Railroad Track in Stolen Auto
Lon Caton, a middle-aged man, who
motorized a modern "wild ride of Ma
zeppa," will spend from one to two
years in the penitentiary for his self
inflicted ordeal. Caton may never go
down in history as a "wild rider," but
his one bid for fame in police circles
will linger for years in the memories
of those who had any part in the
chase that resulted in Caton's cap
ture. Adam J. Pszanowski left his "fliv
ver" standing outside a building in
the wholesale district on the after
noon of April 11. Caton stole the
car, making his getaway up a "blind
alley," which he didn't know was
"blind" at the time.
He found himself pursued by the
owner of the car and others who ran
out of nearby offices. There was only

Motor Trucks Is Only
of Minor Importance!
First quality and continuous good serv
ice is all important.
Jn buying GMC trucks you save at the start
and later. You get trucks which have demonstrated
their worth under every conceivable road and load
condition trucks which, with reasonable care and
attention will render years of satisfactory service,
operate at lowest cost per ton mile, and require
the minimum of repairs and replacements.
GMC reliability and operating economy have
shown that there is no saving in buying trucks too
low in price, and GMC performance has force
fully demonstrated that it does pay to invest an
amount sufficient to assure quality and stability.
