When Lewis regained his title recently in Los Angeles from Don George, he really was only resuming his work where he left o!f when he lost to Snnnenberg early In 193D before a $70,000 house In Boston. His Vacation w.is over; he was back pounding the beat.- The fact is that Jim Londos, thc - Curley champion, recognized in - New York anrt Pennsylvania, had been cutting seriously Inlo (he na. tional wrestling surplus. Understand, Lewis had thrown Londos many, many (lines. With Lewis, the conqueror of Londos, champion again, the fans would scream for the Strangler. Besides, a rich Reid in New York city has been practically untouched b y the Bowser- Sandow people. Now llicy are starting lo go after the spoils here anci ill. other Curley strongholds. Thus. Illinois acted drastically after thc Slrangier' had posted a forfeit and signified his willingness to meet this Londos champion. The substance of Illinois action was that there can't be two wrestling champions defending their lilies In that state. The problem was solved by declaring there is no wrestling champion at all. no not one. You never know just what plan - the men who control wrestling are hatching. From certain sources come tips to the effect that Ray Stcele, the California collegian, is soon due to supplant Lowlcs. There are other whisperings that Joe Savoldi is to become the Bowscr- Sandow bell cow. since Lr.vis was so unfortunate as to lose his championship in Montreal so one Henri De Glane over the little matler of a bitten wrist. As a rule the lines of action of thc big Issues of wrestling are fairly sharply denned, but I am lo!d there have been some disagreement lately between Paul B;w?r:-man- ager of Don George, and Biliy Sando*-, the Strangler's head mnn This dissension within the league may mean that Ihe wrestlers o Robins Push Giants Down As Cards Pull Alongside Macks Are Idle.

In both the wrestling leagues, changes in the "championships" are soon due. It U not good policy lo let a champion stay in there too long. That may help to explain why Mr. Lewis has won and lost the title four times. Can you imagine that sort of thing happening in boxing? The story of Lewis' title the last few jfars is Intriguing in more ways lhan one. You nny remember that Lewis lost his title in Kansas Cily in 1925 lo Wayne (Big) Munn The mistake that Mr. Munn made was to wrestle Stan Zbyszko later In the same year, Jp.ck C.urjsy went to ?t>yKk(Vi corner, offered him « an oasy. free putting swing. tlu: backswing increase according to the distance their ball is from the cup.
