Clash Will Provide Color
George Strickland, Denver, and Buck Davidson, Houston, Tex.,
clash In one of the most colorful and dynamic mat matches of the
season Saturday, featuring a three-bout wrestling show at the Rose
qurg Armomy arena.
Strickland beat Davidson on a foul in a bloody brawl two weeks
ago, and this time the victor has asked for the right to make the
victory undisputable. So, there will be no time limit for the three
fall battle; there will be a $100 side bet; there will be no disquali
fication, with the exception of using the "strangle, finger laces,
low blows and eye gouging. The bout, along with the attractive
supporting matches, promises to draw a capacity crowd.
The opener, starting at 8:30 p. m., will match Dave Detton,
young Salt Lake City star, against Billy McEuin, the tough Texan.
Gordon Hessell, the colorful and fast-moving matman from Albu
querque, N. M., meets Lee Grable, highly-touted veteran from
Phoenix, Ariz., in the three-fall semi-final. Both Detton and Grable
will be making their local debuts.
Elton Owen will referee all three bouts.
Los Angeles Rams
To Meet Eagles
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17 (.IP)
The Los Angeles Rams will need
that old college spirit, if there Is
such a thing in professional foot
ball, to defeat the workmanlike
Philadelphia Eagles and win the
National league championship.
Local worshippers believe the
Rams have that spirit, and 70,000
or more will gather in Memorial
coliseum tomorrow to see if it
can send the club to victory over
the vaunted defending champions
from the Quaker city.
The Eagles remain the pick of
most observers to win the crown
again, with seven and a half
points the general odds offered
on the chance-taking fronts.
The margin is based on the
Philadelphia record of 11 victor
ies and one long setback in their
drive toward the 1949 title, their
38-14 victory over the Rams that
November in Philadelphia, and
a reputation as one of the best
balanced football clubs in the
pro ranks today.
