WEST TO WATCH
PESEK AT WORK
New York Mat Impressario
Also to Confer With Gene
Melady Regarding July
Jack Curley, New York wrestling
inpressario who has just registered
a bid of $50,000 for a match between
Earl Caddock and the winner of the
Stecher-Lewis match, is coming west
to Nebraska next week for a two
fold purpose. One is to see the John
Pesek-Yussif Hussane match at Lin
coln May 2 and the other is to hold
a pow-wow with Gene Melady in
Curley's attention has been called
to Pesek, Nebraska's newest wrestling
plienom, and the Hussane match is
really a test event for the purpose of
showing Curley and a few of the
other big business men of the mat
game that Dodge county isn't the
only spot in Nebraska where wrest
lers are cultivated.
Hussane has developed Into quite
a wonderful defensive wrestler. In
the old days when he lived in Omaha,
Hussane was an aggressive wrestler
and a good one. Then lie began to
fall away and lost his speed, skill
and strength. Then Curley began to
train Hussane as a defensive wrestler,
with the result that the Balkan
husky can make the best of them step
If Pesek beats Hussane and Ne
braska mat faus hope that he does
it quickly and decisively the east
ern mat man will know the Shclton
cyclone is what Nebrnska claims he is.
Curley will leave New York di
rectly after the Stecher-Lewis match
Friday night. He will come first to
Omaha for a conference with Gene
Melady in regard to the July 4 do
ings and then proceed to Lincoln for
the Tesek-Hussane joust May 2. He
probably will return again ,to Omaha
alter the bout.
