General Sporting Notes (Excerpt)

Originally Published In The Fitchburg Daily Sentinel (Fitchburg, Massachusetts), March 7, 1913, Page 6.

Mayor Harrison of Chicago is out against fake wrestling matches and has barred the Zbyszko-Lurich contest, classing it with the Gotch-Hackenschmidt fake of Labor day, 1911. There are many other fake wrestling matches of lesser importance going on all the time and the promoters will kill the sport again if they don’t adopt straighter methods.
