who could not come because of
a broken arm. He proved him­
self to be a real wrestler, and
the fans are hoping for a re­

Another good contest was stag­
ed by Bob Raymer of Vernonia
and Jimmy Strater of Portland,
substituted for McGooty.
For a while it looked as if -Ray­
mer was going to be badly beat­
en, but in the last part he had the
best of it. Strater has beaten
some of the best wrestlers of his
weight in Portland.
