clash in the three-fall opener.
The four grapplers are among the
leaders tn tne nation, all veteran
ring masters who are capable of
providing some of the most color
ful and dynamic action In t h e
The headllners have dlstinc-
tlve attributes. Dusette, the
French-Canadian from Montreal,
possesses the most muscular
shoulders and arms In the wrest
ling game and his full-nelson
holds are "out of this world".
Karlinko, the "Mad Russian," Is
one of the roughest, toughest mat
men in the game and holds the
distinction, dubiously so, of being
the most-haled performer ever
to step Into the roped arena.
Karlinko displayed his prowess
here last week by defeating a
very formidable foe, Salvadore
Flores, in Impressive style, and
despite his unpopular standing
with Douglas county mat follow
ers, is expected to give Dusette
a teriffic battle that migh well
develop lno a bloody brawl.
To match Dusette's superior
strength, Karlinko unquestion
ably will resort to his customary
Afler last week's all-important
title tilt, which attracted one of
the largest crowds of the season,
It doesn t seem likely that an
other big crowd would be on
hand, but there Is every Indica
