A rematch of the pair who stag
ed one of the best and most busl
ressllke wrestling matches Salem
fans hare seen for many m. ntbs.
Is offered to the fans tonight at
the armory, when Robin Reed and
Jack Kennedy meet again. .Ken

Boise, gave Reed all the trouble
that conld . be wished on the

enemy, in ' their previous bout,

wrestling, but kept forcing ahead
with punishing holds and then

also had to eschew fireworks and
busy himself with Wrestling. And

Ten 'those fans who usually are
n't satisfied unless somebody pulls
out a ring stake and ules it for a
club, forgot to howl for blood.
There were a good many fans
who thought Reed , was lucky to
win, and they will be back tonight
to find out if their Judgment was
correct. Somebody will have to
win unless the bout runs on to
midnight, for it ts no-time-Hmit,
Herman Olson and Mutt Eddy,
a pair of rugged crowd-pleaserB,
will grapple for an bour and a
half, and a half-hour match be
tween Toby Wallace and a new
comer, Fred Maracci, will open the
how. Maracci has been making
a favorable name for himself in
Portland, and Wallace should
make him extend himself here.
