PAGE SIX ; BLYTHEVILLE, ;(ARK.)" COURIER NEWB SIICEL Big Colorado Pinner Re- steres Wrestling to Wrestlers; Is Specialist BY HARRY GRAYSON Sports .Editor, NEA Service They called gentlemanly Earl Caddock the man of a thousand holds. Farmer Burns maintained that there • we're 2500 wrestling Jiolds. -But Everett Marshal],' who has •won-- wider recognition as heavyweight champion thaii any other pretender, didn't climb to tlie top with any of the new and freak holds which have had so much publicity in recent 'years. .Marshall iook the full-Nolson, oneibf the oldest holds in wrest-, lirtg-^onc that every kid learns In the 'school yard—ond simply developed it Into as great a state of perfection as It ever reached. The hlondvColoradoan didn't (lo it by accident or with ease. He spent more than five years tugging and pulling away On a dummy. The, upper .half 'of the dummy is v built of wood to resemble the torso of n man. Tlie legs arc replaced by stirrups.-Marshall plants his feet. In the stirrups, hooks his arms -under those of the dummy, and'bears dawn on its spi Ing- hinged head. He's done It hour after hour until his wrists and forearms aie developed to a laigci , extent than tlie biceps of the -vast majority of athletes' In the most wearing of giinds » » 9 Wrestler's Deadliest Hold Al'llnft, the Columbus promoter who; has-handled John Pesck, Jim Biowning, Dick Slilkat, and Jim McMillen, :calls the full-Nelson as used- tiy Marshall the . deadliest hold in wieslllnu history. Tlie Hard haps more opponents severely than nny other eai* massager of more iccent •vintage. It Is getting so that promoters are careful to get good _ referees' when : Marshall is working for ifear that the man working with' him will be badly hurt. Marshall Is a grappler of the old school. He gets a_bit peeved when folks talk of flying tackles, airplane spins, and other show- -'rrianshlp - holds which have come , 'into prominence of late. Eai ncil Everett ,^'has rcstoicd Hayti and Steele Will Meet Tomorrow STEELE, Mo.,— Unless water conditions get , more sedous the Haytl basketball teams will come to Steele Friday night for a dou- ile header.

"You wouldn't fake a funeral." c, '.*'. * Grapplinf Greats Specialize Every wrestling leader has n . favorite hold'with which he wins most of his matches. Frank Gotch prevailed with- a toe-hold. The Humbolt Farmer developed it' to R point where It woiked psychologically. Whenever he applied It, the other fellow feared a broken leg. j ,1.1 Caddock's : best bet was a head scissors and wristtock. Joe Steelier .squeezed' rivals' Into submission •with the body scissors, , made unbearable by the Dodge City demon's long and sinewy legs. The modem. Lewis .specialized in the headlock. The big Badger's arms and shoulders were so powerful that he actually pressed all the life out of giants by squeezing their noggins.
