Cleveland, O., Feb. 2. – Tom Jenkins has made up his mind that wrestling does not pay. "I am thinking of retiring," he said. "The fact that the public has been, swindled so often by fixed wrestling bouts that where formerly there were dollars in the game there are only pennies now. A wrestler has to work hard all the time, much harder than pugilists, and his compensation is much smaller. I am convinced that this is unfair, and I am going to quit the game.”
