BARKSDALE FIELD OUTDOOR ARENA WILL FIVE BOUTS Roy "Ace" Whatley Will Ten-Round Contest With Kayo Manuel; Three Whether its due to bis grappling ability, bis long hair and whUkers, his hill-billy attitude or whatnot, figures prove that Leo "Daniel Boone" Savage, of Boyd county, Kentucky, 240-pound heavyweight mat title claimant, is the biggest box office attraction to appear in Shreveport since the days Ed Lewis was drop ping into tbl city for matches. The back-woodsman, who will meet Earl Davis, rough Ohioan In a two out of three fall contest In the auditorium Monday, was the magnet that two weeks ago attracted the largest crowd to witness a wrestling match In Shreveport in almost ten years. There was not a vacant seat on the first two floor of the auditorium, and the gallery was comfort ably filled. Only a few weeks pre vious the hill-billy appeared before a packed house when he defeated Len Macaluso, Eastern Italian. Even before Savage was banded the heavyweight wrestling title by the state athletic commission, and other states recognized the ruling, the big Kentucklan was a real box office attraction in 8hreveport. He waa first Introduced by Art Moody and the turn out was tremendous. A few weeks after that be drew another big "gate" here. What is true In Shreveport is true in other cities where the Kentucklan has He has proven popular in Houston, and re cently in St. Louis he appeared be fore a tremendous crowd. Several months ago his manager, Prank Burke, took hira back to Kentucky for a match and the house was a sell out" In less than two years Savage has made a fortune by wrestling, and he Is smart enough to save most of It. He says there are many things back in Kentucky that he would like to do when he Is finished "struggling." Savage has no false Ideas about the championship awarded blm. He realizes that he may wake up any morning and find himself dethroned. He desires to earn what be can while his popularity Is on the boom, and for this reason will listen to terms with the promoters. Savage experienced tough sailing In bis match with Davis here two weeks ego. For the first time the Shreveport fans saw the hill-billy's shoulders pinned to the mat. The general opinion is that Davis would have been the winner had he not Injured his shoulder, the referee being forced to halt the bout. Davis Is much faster than Savage and has more of the "killer Instinct." He will stretch the rule In an effort to win and in the previous bout was accused of rubbing soap in Savage's eyes. If history repeats the Savage-Davis bout will be waged before another packed house. Marvin Westenberg, southern title claimant, has finished a week of hard work for his bout with Sol Slagle, the India rubber man, known also as the balloon boy. Slagle has been piling up a long list of vlctO' ries and Westenberg has not been defeated in Shreveport. This bout will be for two falls out of three, one' hcur time limit Jack League, who displayed hi kayo punch to local fans in a box ing bout here Friday night, returns to the ring as a wrestler in the first bout on tonight1 program.
