Abe Yager announces that another excellent wrestling card is scheduled for tonight at the Coney Island Velodrome. The success of the first bouts last Friday night, when Abie Coleman met Jumping Joe Savoldi, was so great and the response so enthusiastic that the promoters will continue these heave-and-grunt specials all summer.

On Sundays at the Velodrome the bike racers chase each other around the saucer-shaped track with the speed of express trains. The best riders from the United States and Europe are scheduled to appear every week.


A fine boxing card has been arranged for tomorrow night at the Ridgewood Grove in Brooklyn. Six bouts have been scheduled and the Ridgewood fans are in for plenty of snappy and scrappy fighting.
