Buck Lawson, Gus Wisbar Win Matches The crashing double Jack-knife of Gus Wisbar proved too much for /ioy Allen who wits defeated in one of two individual feature matches at (he American Legion wrestling arena here last night. Wisbar applied the hold to win .he first fall after Ihc performers ind grappled furiously for 15 minutes, but Allen evened matters when they returned to the ring for the second fall. He slapped a body )i:i on the prone figure of Wisbar to fasten his shoulders to the canvas In exactly 10 minutes. The clincher In the, third fnli again was Wlsbar's double Jack, which he succeeded in getting after nine minutes of exciting action. :. Buck Lawson succeeded in taming the old ringmaster Roy Welch hi the other match, a tvro-out-of- three-fall, 00-mlnutc time limit affair. The double Jack-knife also stood Lawson in good steart for he used this hold to annex the third and deciding fall in seven minutes after the pair had come into the ring for the showdown with the score one-one. Previously, Lawson had won the first tumble with ah arm snatch, time 15 minutes, after which the veteran Welch retaliated by winning the second in 10 minutes with the Frank Gotch toe hold, one of the most effective clutches in the business.
