The Sporting Calendar for Hamilton Polo—sunday Afternoon

Download PDF for this date

West Point officers at the United States Military Academy will invade Fort Hamilton, Sunday afternoon and cross mallets with the first Division Pole quartet. This will be the first and last appearance of the invading unit in the Metropolitan area this season. Both teams carry an eight goal handicap and are rated about even in horse flesh. A close contest may be expected.

Lieutenant Ben Jacobs will lead the Fort Hamilton riders into action again this Sunday.


Sander Szabo, Hungarian champion, gets first call at Gino Garibaldi, Italian titleholder, in a finish match at the popular Coney Island Velodrome this Friday night. The winer will be the logical contender for champion Jim Browning.

The rest of the bill looks like old home week for the Dusek clan.

Rudy Dusek, the Omaha Rowdy, who is thoroughly disliked by fans throughout the met sector will meet Mike Romano. The Rowdy is one egg both Jewish and Italian fans alike would plunk their dough on the line to see trimmed badly. In another time limit engagement Emil Dusek, brother of the Omaha Rowdy, tackles Abe King Kong Kashey, Syrian champion.

Eli Fisher, the boy from dear old Rutchers, meets Vanka Zelesniak, Russian Wildman. Ed Moske comes to grips with Wildcat Ernie Stevens in the opener.
