Had Been Agreed That One
Fall Would Decide Match;
. Wrestle More Than ,
New York, Jan. 30. Joe Stecher
of Nebraska won the heavyweight
wrestling championship at catch-as-catch-can,
by deefating Earl t Cad
dock of Iowa, with a body scissors
and armlock, af tea-more than, two
hours of wrestling. Madison Square
Garden was thronged to it; capacity
for the match. Referee George Jiotb
ner started the bout at 9:18 o'clock.
Stecher had the advantage in
weight and was seemingly about 20
pounds heavier than Caddock. - Both
were very cautious at the start and
for 10 minutes simply pawed each
other's neck and shoulders.
After wrestling 30 minutes, Stecher
threw Caddock to the mat with j
side trip and pounced on top, try
ing for a body scissors. Caddock
twisted out of tight quarters and re
gained an erect-position cleverly.
Tries for Leg Hold.
" Five minutes .later Stecher went
down in an attempt for a leg hold,
but Caddock could not keep him
doyn, and both were on their feet
again in less than a minute. Stecher
then got Caddock underneath with
a side roll, but was unable to get any
advantage. A forward body hold
was equally unavailing and both
were on their feet after SO minutes
had elapsed. '
An attempt for a body scissors by
Stecher with Caddock underneath
was foiled by the Iowa man. ' ' '
At the expiration of one hour's
time, both men were on their feet.
The prespiration was dripping from
them but neither showed" any sign
of weakening. .' ' , l
Stecher . picked up his opponent
bodily and threw him to the mat for
another futile effort to obtain a
body scissors. Again Caddock's
wonderful dexterity enabled him to
break free and they resumed up
right nositions. Thev had been
wrestling 75 minutes when Caddock
roiled away trom another scissors
attack and electrified the crowd by
a double foot hold fpom behind which
gave him an aggressive position.
They had gone 90 minutes when
Stecher secured a headlock out of
which Caddock squirmed. Caddock
gave a' wonderful exhibition of de
fensive tactics in preventing a body
scissors, and cleverly offset Stecher s
persistent attack which lasted fully
In another effort for a leg hold,
Stecher showed His strength by
lifting Caddock bodily, while in .a
kneeling position. The match had
then gone one hour and45 minutes
While Caddock conceded , 20
pounds in weight to the .Nebraskan,
he put up a. magnificent battle and
it was not until within five minutes
of the end that his opponent gained
a uccisive advantage.
Just before the close of the
second hour, Stecher secured a tody
scissors and wrist lock after Cad
dock had made a supreme but futile
effort to obtain a half Nelson. Cad
clock brought the spectators to thefr
feet when he broke the double
hold as his left shoulder was barely
an, inch from the mat for a pin fall.
J he effort had, however, appar
ently exhausted him for a moment
later he was again gripped in a
body scissors and this time both his
shoulders went to the mat.
The official time was two hours
five minutes, and 30 Seconds. '
Wants Fremont to Help
Organize State League;
1 Lincoln Has Franchise
Fremont, NeJ.. Jan. 30. (Special.
James Beltzer of Lincoln called on
a number of Fremont business men

already taken a. franchise. Beltzer
said, and so have four or five other
towns. Beltzer said he would like
to have Fremont's aid in forming the
new league. He found, little en
couragement in Fremont, but he
thinks that by the' time the robins
fly the base ball fever will induce
Fremonters to associate a team with
