A new type of wrestling show will be presented by Farmer Nick at the Skatcland Roller rink next Monday night.

According to reports from Farmer Nick, the Michigan CI ate Boxing Nick, the Michigan State Boxing hold only one of these matches in any city in one season. The reason for the scarcity of these matches is the difficulty officials have in keeping order inside the roprs. Tiie best part oi tile show starts Willi the opening bell when six wrestlers climb into the ring for a free-for-all. The "battle royal" is used to determine who will meet in the sdni-final and final events on the program. The first two men downed in the slugfest are eliminated for the rest of the evening. The third and fourth wrestlers pinned will come back later for a two-out-of-three-fall semifinal nintch and the two still in the ring and on their feet, will come back to cla.ih in the final event on the night's card. Three new grapplers will be among the six to appear on the card Flash Gordon. Shiek Badu and Dale Wayne are the newcomers.

T-formation passer from the Los Angeles Rams, and Ted Fritsch. 210-pouiid fullback with the Green Bay Packers. Watcrfield marie the team in 1945 as a member of the Cleveland Rams, NFL champions who this year switched their franchise to Las Anceles. Fritsch, playing Mils fifth season for the Packers, gained the honors for the first time. All linemen named made previous AP elevens or All-Pro teams selected oy the National Football League. The league discontinued selections after 1542 and the NFL by-laws now prohibit the selecting of a team by anyone connected with the circuit. However, few coaches are adverse to naming their best men. Kenton at End Jim Benton, the end who hauls down aenxils thrown by Wan-rficld. and Jim Poole of the New York Giiint.s. proved by the voting of sports writers and coaches to be the two best flankers in the play-for-pay game. The selection of Riley Matheson for one of the guard berths gives the Rams three All-Pros, the same as in '45 when they played in Cleveland. Matheson has made the team the last three seasons. Al Wistert. who joins Kinard as a tackle, made the team for the third straight year as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. The unanimous choice at center was Clyde 'Bulldog" Turner of the Chicago Bears, western division winners in tli NFL. Turner mr de four previous All-Pro elevens and at 240 pounds is the heaviest man on a line that averages 221 pounds. I irst Tram Kn-i ,l!m Rfntnn. t.n Ani:r!,-s R.iniv Taritlp-Krnnk KUmol.
