Two best falls oul of three, with a ninety minute (line limit will govern both matches. (,'orto-i Tillr (.'onlciidor The Spaniard, Cortex, ranks veil among the leaders in the middleweight division, AUhor.ih ' slightly heavy now, lie has been wrestling the best and hopes for a title match. He has not been ici this country long, coming direct from Madrid, where he claimed the national championship in Ills weight. 'Knlckli! has not been beaten since .'the matchmaker recently took over the athletic reins. In his first match he whipped the game Toledo boy, Bobbie Samson. Two weeks inter he was dated to face Mike Moreno. But the .Greek was injured in a match and was not, able to appear. Ills 'substitute proved very good but Was not able to take i-VciUllc's measure, dropping the match In straight falls.

Olsen plr^vs a foxy, defensive game., somewhat, alons the style of llic frVmfcr champion, Jlln Lonclos. lie plays along with his opponent, worrying Ihcm with his tactics, and at the same time availing lor them to provide, an opening which to work on.

Floyd Byrd was no match for Ole, neither was Billy .Vcnable, whom he iMlished olT with apparent case. In Lopez the matchmaker says he has a wrestler who is capable of giving the Swede a good match,- and It wouldn't 'surprise him a bit if he didn't give him the works.- He Is a vicious, strong mail physically, and will have a .decided weight advantage. But Ole gives away from - five to ten pounds each match • nnd doesiv't seem to bother. In tact, he has stated that he'would much rather iackje heavier men. Hot Gillinm.
