ItV WH.l.IA.M KIIACCIIKR NI'A Service Spurts l.'dltor NEW YOKK. May 20.—The pros- | pcrlty of wrestling limy \K traced Ihetlly to tlie collapse of boxing hat resulted from an epidemic of "onls and unsatisfactory fights. Hut there is another source farther back than that, traced lo n «iually Dartmouth tackle, Gus Suniienljerg, who brought to Ihe a new kind of onslaught in the Hying lackle. Three years ago, Iwfore n $70,000 iiouse In ISoston, Gus nnd lib flying tackle rendered Champion Hlrnng- ler U-wis liors de combat. The young nthletc irom Ihe Michigan iron and lumber country "carried Hie ball" across the country and back again on an end rim that netted hundreds of thousands of dollars. * • * Sonnenbcrg wns accused of faking practices. It was charged he wrestled Don Kololf half a dozen times in different cities, with Kol- oll advertised under different names. Gus did not deny it, but toll! newspaper men that he had nnt known promoters were changing Kolofl's name. Bonnenbcrg. understand, was champion of what might be called tiie "American League" of wrestling, the Bowser-Saudow group' with strongholds in Boston, Kansas City and along the Pacific Const. Meanwhile the National League of wrestling, centered in New York and controlled by Jack Cnrlcy. a promoter for 40 years, was advancing the claims alternately ot Hans Stcinkc, Richard Shlkat and Jim Londos. Curley, insisting that Soiinc-nberg "couldn't wrestle a lick," challenged him to meet anyone of a dozen of his pachyderms, offering 553,000 if the man Gus chose should not he able to throw him twice in three minutes. The challenge was not answered. Sonncnberg. working the charm of his flying tackle upon crowds from coast to coast, was reaping rich rewards, other collegians began to follow Ills lead. It, was but a short lime until wrestling was crowded with young men from the colleges who brought to the mat gifts of swift, fierce action learned on the gridiron. * • • Wrestlers of all the "leagues"-and the Independents, such ns Al Haft's man at Columbus, O., John Pesek—copied the furious tactics of Gus the Goat. This stirring action went over big with the crowds The "airplane slam," consisting of whirling the victim over one's head and flinging him with a crash to the canvns. was added to the repertoire and soon became n favorite stunt of the grinders. The Influx of college men eonlin- «1 until lodny there arc more than 30 collegians on the big circuits, ninny of them wrestling three and four nights a week. The latest recruits nre Joe Savol- rti. the former Notre Dame fullback, who 1m been "playing" for the Bowser-Sandow booking firm antl Len Macnluso, the Colgate All- America choice. Upon tliesc college men such old wrestling entrepreneurs as Monster Curley look with a Jaundiced eye. and with the comment "they can't wrestle, but it ts gecting so that any 200-pr,im<t-r from a college football field can pack n house."
