Middlewest Tournament Notes
The local drive for entries will be
given double force this week. More
men writl be on the job and more
tijne will be given to the work. If
every local bowler would do his
luty the entry committee could be
saved a large amount of work. There
is not a bowler in the city who can
notpersonally land an entfy or di
rect the committee to where there
one is to be had. '
The Council Bluffs rollers are
i-nminor to life and are showine a
little interest in the meet. Looks
like four teams from over the river.
From far-off Madison, S. D.,
comes a plea for entry blanks. They
have heard of the tournament' and
are anxious to get in. JThey-have
never been heard of and do not ap
pear on the official mailing list. Sec
retary hastily mailed them all the
official literature, including a special
invitation. They claim they have
the strongest team south of 53, so
watch for a dark horse.

Sneppard of Kansas City is en
tered and is sure to attract a lot of
attention. He is one of tbgame's
best tournament shooters.
The outside entry is unusually
large now, with the entries open un
til midnight, November 13. After
considering the usual huge last-minute
entry, which every big tourna
ment experiences, indications are
strong for a record outside entry.
- Team captains should bear in
mind that every league team in the
city is expected to .enter. It is not
argued that all these teams have a
chance to win. It is argued that it
is every bowler's duty to boost the
tournament, which is only boosting
his own game. A large local entry
is necessary to assure the tourna
ment a success. The tournament

Address Swift Specific Co.. 253
Swift Laboratory, Atlanta, GaT-
New York, Nov. 3. (Special Tel
egram.) Joe Stecher, the Nebraska
farmer boy, defeated Ed ("Strang
ler") Lewis in a catch-as-catcb-can
wrestling match, in Madison Square
Garden Monday night. Stecher se
cured the necessary fall after 1 hour
31 minutes'and 2 seconds with a
double wrist lock and body scissors
hold. ' " .
- It was a- dramatic finish to a sen
sational match that had the crowd
on edge every minute after the two
eiants warmed to their work. In
deed, toward the ; end it appeared
Stecher would go down to defeat
before the dread head hold of the
"Strangler." - '
Time after time Lewis applied tne
crushing, punishing hold on Stech
er, but the latter, game to tEe core,
wormed his way dizzily out' of dan
Stecher throughout was the cooler
and more deliberate of the two and
it was owing, to this same coolness
that the farmer boy was finally able
to achieve his victory. Repeated ap
plications of the head hold had left
Joe Stecher somewhat dizzy and be
wildered when, after an hour and 25
minutes, Lewis applied his chiet
trick for the sixth time of the night.
It was with the greatest difficulty
that Stecher by the clever use of his
powerful and agile legs succeeded in
escaping tne human vice, tie was so
groggy when he got to his feet that
he fell an easy victim to the same
trap and was borne to the mat an
evidently doomed man, but Stecher,
with his shoulders almost on the
canvas, bridged wonderfully and
finally jerked loose. Quick as a steel
trap he rolled away. He encircled
Lewis' body with his dependable
legs, using immediately in conjunc
tion with his best stock in trade a
hammerlock that turned Lewis over
on his back. Lewis by sheer strength
broke this hammerlock, but in doing
so cave Stecher an opportunity to
improve the purchase of his body
Stecher, still cool headed, then
went deliberately about applying the
wristlock. iie watched his oppor
tunity as Lewis tried to squirm free
and finally he secured a double wrist
lock that clinched the victory. The
scissors tor the once had triumphed
over theheadlock. "
Before the main bout, Wladeck
