The Sproting Calendar Coney Island Velodrome Tonight

Download PDF for this date

That the best wrestling for the remainder of the season will be staged in the Coney Island Velodrome is evident by the card that will make up the mat carnival tonight. The feature attraction, to a finish, will reveal the Omaha Rowdy, Roughneck Rudy Dusek, grappling with Jumping Joe Savoldi, the nimble boy from Notre Dame.

Last week Dusek made Abie Coleman yell quits in a match that left the Jewish rassler battered and bleeding. Our money is on Joe Savoldi to do the same to Rudy tonight.

A special attraction will show Everett Marshall rassling against Marshal Blackstock. Coleman licked both these fellows at one time, only to be beaten decisively by the two later on.

The new Hebrew sensation, Harry Fields, 230 pounds of kosher meat, makes his Coney Island debut tonight against Ivan Ivanovitch Vaktoroff, the Russian Wolf, who is supplying the opposition.
