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 three minutes. 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.

It can't be, although it ought to be. Few people have feet of which they are proud, because they "have abused them in shoes which are any thing but. the true shape of the natural ' human foot. And how foolish, because you ''don't need to have distorted feet. Ground Gripper shoes are scientifically de signed, the exact shape of the human foot. They don't bind or pinch or distort. They permit every toe to take its natural position so that your feet are just as comfortable when you have your when you are bare-footed. Ml; ' ' s a n i ie .an jrwr- vtim . .1 IARM KG!
