escaped with his championship crown. Davis tore into the hill-billy and caused him more trouble than any other opponent be has faced here. He gave the fans a surprise when he pinned Savage's shoulders to gain the first fall. Missing a running attack in trying to win the second and deciding fall. Davis collided with the ring post and Injured his shoulder.

He lost the faU but gamely stuck to his guns to answer the third gong but the referee halted the bout and named Savage the winner. Davis Is big, powerful clever and mean. He was accused of rubbing soap Into Satage's eyes in their last meeting, and he drew a fine for his actions. He stands about six feet three Inches tall and weighs around 230 pounds Before becoming agrappler he was an ail-American college football player, nlayeC pro-grid ball, took a fling at boxing, and was a pitcjier in organized baseball, met the best wrestlers in America, and believes Savage is jr an among the men he can defeat. Frank Burke, who manages Savaee, says the hill-billy is in great condition, and that the big fellow has really learned to wrestle In recent months, although Savage depend greatly on his strength, he has perfected the back-drop that he uses witb great success.

While Burke carefully safeguards Savage's championship by taking cars of all preliminary details leading up to the match, the be-whiskered giant does not show any great alarm over the honors. To him the title is only a good thing to 'make money with If he loses it he will have no regrets. In the semi-final bout tonight, Sol Slagle, the hm.ian pretzel, will pit his present winning streak against the long list of victories piled up In Shreveport by Marvin Westenberg, Southern title claimant. Slagle is In top form and In recent weeks has mowed dow. all opponents.

While Wes'enberg will have height la his favor Slagle will have the advant. ge In weight, and probably tn power. Slagle Is a mat contortionist and a great defensive wrestler. His antics are always good for a laugh from the croud. The prediction is that this bout will furnish plenty of hard, clever grappling.

Jack League, the tall, handsome Texan, who scored a sensational knockout here Friday night In the role of a boxer, will be In tonight'a curtain raiser. Promoter Julius Sigel has matched him with George 'Boyo Cochrane, the bad boy of East Texas. Leajue has turned In several pleas ing performances as a wrestler. Last summer Cochrane was a target for the 'boo' gang here. On several occasions he had to be escorted from the ring by police officers, the fane showing considerable resentment over his foul tactics.

The recent Savage-Davis bout set an all-time crowd record for a program In the auditorium and Promoter. Julius Sigel saya indications are thai the crowd figures will be bettered tonight.
