Excerpts From “Brief and Breezy” Column

Published In The Lethbridge Daily Herald (Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada), Thursday, November 24, 1910, Page 6.

The wrestling trust is boycotting Mahmont, the Turkish grappler. Breaking away from his old manager he refuses to “frame” any more matches. Mat exhibitions are nearly all fixed. Square matches are the exception.


A hippodrome between two clever grapplers is more exciting and spectacular than a genuine contest. When the wrestlers break holds, shake their fists in each other’s faces and play to the gallery they furnish more sport than when they wrestle in deadly earnest.
