"Strangler" Lewis on Tour
May Give Show Here
Before you get fresh with a re
turned soldier find out if he trained
under Billy C. Sandow, manager and
trainer of Ed. "Strangler" Lewis,
who is now maklqg a tour of the
country and expects to be in Harris
burshortly. Sandow and the "Strang
ler" put wrestling in the army camps
and what they did not show the
doughboys, is not worth talking of.
For rough and tumble-stuff these
experts took thousands of raw sol
diers and made them nifty with the
various throws and jolts, and not
only that but showed them how to
break an enemy's leg, trip him on
the run and a dozen other tricks
which savor much of the Jiu jitsu.
Many of the soldiers found these
stunts useful in closing in on the
demon Hun.
Sandow gives some suggestion!
for the wold-be wrestler which are
worth knowing, for instance:
When you have your opponent
down and are the keep
him there by means of your \lfeight.
This will serve the double purpose
of preventing him from changing
his position.
Go through the motions quickly
and with vim, whether on the defen
sive or offensive.
When you are the under man,
keep on moving constantly, thus not
only preventing your opponent from
securing a hold, but also enabling
you in the change of position to se
cure a good hold on him.
Feature the strangle holds, for an
opponent may be made unconscious
by one of them.
Indulge in rough and unpopular
tactics, such as butting witli the
head. Remember when you meet the
Hun nothing is barred. Any hold or
method of procedure is allowed,
strangle, gouge, kick, poke the fin
gers in his eyes or snap his limbs.
You can kill a man with a flying
mare or a strangle hold.
Be as aggressive as possible, then
your opportunities for success will
be increased.
This system of rough and tumble
wrestling is an unsurpassed means
of selfdefense. Get behind your op
ponent as quickly as possible as it
it is the safest position.
Always watch an opponent's feet
as much as possible. You can throw
your man with your feet as easily as
you can with your hands and arms.
This system of rough and tumble
grappling is not only the most natur
al method of selfdefense in the world
but by far the most effective.
Dr. B. F. Roller, the famous phy
sician-athlete and former American
champion wrestler, challenged Jess
Willard to go to the gymnasium with

officials and settle for once and all

Dr. Roller could whip any fighter

the toll road between Lewistown and

had not only adopted one another as
brothers in arms, but that their af

as well, and that the returning Au
stralian soldiers had learned to know

come ardent fans. Baker thinks base
ball a high-class sort of sport him
self, and is willing to lend his tre
mendous influence, his money and his
genius to fostering this new love of
the Australians, so that the time may
not be far distant when a team will
come from the Antipodes to meet the
best this country can produce.

deal for religious unity.
The election last evening resulted
in William Winn being chosen presi
