BERRY-WAGNER TEAM WIN EVENT THRILLING CONTEST STADIUM By MARVIN The team-tag main event last night at Strelich stadium was a match that wrestling: fans will remember for a long while. Wild Tied Berry and George Wagner downed Danny F McShain and An tone Leone in a two-out-of-three-fall bout, which furnished one breath-taking thrill after •another. v Starting out with remarkable ypeed, the Wild Man Barry cut loose with all of his tricks and wrestling holds on Danny McShain, which in turn caused iVIcHhain to call for lielp from his mate Antone Leone. Fairness, up to this point, was the main object of Berry and Wagner but it soon came to a standstill when both Leone and McShain climbed into the ring against Wagner. This just didn't go with Berry, who promptly came to the rescue of his partner, after Wagner had injured his leg on the ropes. Berry soon became weary from tangling with his two opponents, and he -tagged Wagner, who had rested considerably. McShain's speed was too *• much for Wagner and his bad leg. This accounted for the speedy key- lock hold which McShain applied on Wagner, taking the fall for the Leone-McShaln toam in 5:50, * Not waiting for the bell to open the next round, the "Wild Man Berry went on the rampage, battling both Leone and McShain at the same time. Wagner soon came to Berry's aid and all four men engaged in a free-for-all, with Referee Bull Montana having his hands full wntching all of the contestants. The referee soon got Wagner and Leone out of the ring, which left Berry and McShain tangling in 1he center of the ..mat. Berry, the quicker of the two, caught his scared opponent, in a FERGUSON body press, giving the round to Wagner and Berry in 6:04. With a fall apiece, the teams entered the ring for the, final decision. The Berry-Wagner team soon put Leone out of commission when they caught him in his corner and twisted his leg -around the pole- supports. McShain was the only able man left in their team, and he was game despite the overwhelming advantage of Berry and Wagner. To the fans' delight, Berry and Wagner taking turns, put McShan through a series of flying mayers, which developed into a body press by "Wagner, ending the fall in 8:37. The semi-windup bont was mostly a hair-pulling contest, with Joe Ferona doing the pulling. Ferona lost the two-out-of-three bout to Johnnie Melas. Ferona took the first exciting fall with a step-over toe hold, ending it In 12:35. "With the fans cheering him on, Melas came back and took two consecutive falls, the first one with a crotch hold and then a body press in 3:55. The second fall was called in 6:20, due to unnecessary roughness on the part of Ferona. Whoever said the boys from Texas ai'en't tough are badly mistaken, for Dandy Davis, a b'oy from "Deep In the Heart of," proved this point very convincingly when he took I^eo Orable in the two-out-of-three fall preliminary match. The first fall was chalked up to Davis in 10:47 when he caught Orahle in a body press after a sling shot off the ropes. Orable took the second fall with a reverse leg Nelson in 5:50, but dropped the final fall to Davis in 10:46 when he fell victim to a back- breaker body press.

Doors Opon 6:45 TENNIS TITLIST ASSISTS KERN An echo oC Louise Snow's representation of Kern county in the eastern tennis matches reached the Kern County Chamber of Commerce this week with communications marvelling at the size, beauty and flavor of Kern county grapes. The 17-year-old tennis player was a special envoy of the County Chamber of Commerce and mnde known the resources of the county as she distributed ten boxes of Kern county's choicest grapes at the various tennis matches and court clubs. AN a courtesy to the youthful player and on attractive manner of publicizing 1 Kern's resources, the County Chamber of Commerce had ten boxes of grapes shipped to Miss Snow at the eastern tennis clubs. The players reported to directors this week that the majority of players sharing the fruit declared they had not seen such beautiful grapes before and had never eaten them. "Almost everyone, players, hostesses, and officials would ask, 'Where in the world did those grapes come from?'-," said Miss Snow today. Harry W. Taylor of Philadelphia wrote the chamber of commerce, say- liiK in part: "During the latter part of August, here in Philadelphia, a tennis tournament was held for the girls' and \vomens* middle Atlantic states grass court championship. Miss Louise Snow of Bakersfield represented the west and did an excellent job; she made many friends here through her manner on the court as well as because of her ability to play. She also received honorable mention for her court manners. May we see her again in 1945. "During the matches I had the pleasure of eating tho best grapes in my long life, and what a monder- ful sight it must be to see them growing. From the weight of those bunches, I would think they grew on trees. Whoever was responsible and so kind as to have those grapes sent to Philadelphia, 1 wish to thank heartily. Many others also enjoyed them." , Louise represented Bakersfield and Kern county at "Westchester Country Club at Rye, N". Y., for the Kastern Women's Grass Court championships, where she was put out in the finals by Shirley Fry of Akron, Ohio; at Nassau, Long Island, in the Eastern Junior Girls' Grass Court championship and won the singles and doubles; in the Junior Nationals at Philadelphia, where she reached the singles and doubles, and during the same week reached the finals In the Women's Middle- states championship. During the Junior Nationals she won one of the three sportsmanship awards presented this year. In the past it has been customary to choose one player, but this year three of the girls tied for the honor, so were all honored. Thin marked the first year that a California girl was selected for the sportsmanship award, and Barbara Scofleld of San Francisco and Miss Snow both brought honors to their home state. At Forest Hills, Miss Siiow played to the quarter finals in the Women's Nationals, and also had the distinction of playing in mixed doubles with Armando Vega, the champion tennis player of Mexico. The RakersfieUl girl, who is a "southpaw" playor, is the daughter or Mr. and Mrs. O. R. Snow, of H007 California avenue, and is now enrolled in her first year at Bakersfield Junior College.
