Gossip of Interest to Sport Fans
Dr. Roller Asserts That, Like
3Jhclors and Business Men of

By 'l. HOWARD KELLY.
Initeraul Horvlc- Stuff or-ponrnt.
New York, Feb. 2. (Special.)
"Today is the hour of the specialist
ill business profession or sports.
JMranglcr "Ed" Lewis is a specialist
in the art of using the headlock.
liecaiisc he has developed it toJhe
downfall of his opponents dors not
mean that the headlock is illegiti
mate mid should be barred."
; Dr. IS. L Rolhr, physician who
. jor a nuinhcr of yrarsXwas considered
;; .op-notch wrestler, expressed these
sentiments today when asked what
lie thought about the howl that has
Koue up from the fans against Lewis'
The headlock, according to Dr..
Roller, is not any more injurious or
painful than the toe hold, lie re
called the fact that Gotch when
champion left a string of broken
legs across the continent as a result
of employing the toe hold which he
Headlock Causes Suffering.
"At that time there was a popular
outcry against this hold. It was
denounced as cruel and merely a
means of torture. I admit that the
headlock causes suffering hut it is
no worse than any of several other
wrestling holds that carry with them
a certain amount of punishment.
VThe present antagonism to Lewis
and his hold is nothing hut the out
cropping of what t call 'marked
psychology." This antagonism
reached its height Monday night
when ("addook was rendered uncon
scious for a few minutes as a result
of Lewis employing the headlock in
combination with a hillock. The
crowd was against Lewis an account
of the smalluess of his opponent and
the fact that his hold has been the
target for much recent criticism. In
other 'w ords, he was a marked man.
His victory brought about a near
riot simply because the fans believe.!
that it was effected by brutality.
"It was neither of these things
principally; It was a combination of
strength, the ability to employ a
specialized hold and naturally some
punishment. Both wrestlers inflict
ed punishment on each other. A
wrestling match is not yet a pink tea
Lewis Developed Headlotk.
"I Consider- I'd Lewis tile clever
est defensive wrestler I have ever
seen in action. He has developed one
hold to a point where it spells vic
tory for him when he can use it. It
takes all of his strength and science
to affcctMt. Why shouldn't he be
Riven, credit for his ability to use it?
Every champ I ever heard of hi'9
possessed just omf' special hold, that j
lie ,rcally depended on for victory. ,
Like doctors and business men the
athlete of today must specialize ou
one thing until he perfects it.
"Whv all this fuss about a man
being knocked unconscious from a
fall in a wrestling match? If a man
i is not knocked out 'cold' for a short
, time in aSioxing match the fans go
x honic. saying it's a 'punk' bout," de
clared the doctor.
