Casey Loses Feature Bout To Kashey In Auditorium

Sacramento Union – October 29, 1942

Grunt ‘n’ groan fans, usually expecting anything in the way of mayhem at wrestling matches in Memorial Auditorium, moved back a few rows last night when Pierre DeGlane and Bronco Valdez tumbled out of the ring and continued to grapple on the floor.

DeGlane finally copped the fall in 16:01 by outslugging his opponent.

In the feature match, Irish Jim Casey, a popular headliner here, lost two out of three falls to Abe Kashey, the Syrian Assassin. Rough tactics, which frequently mark Kashey’s bouts, were a little milder last night. Kashey won the first fall in 24:15, lost the second in 11:58 and copped the third in 10:20.

Jimmy El Pulpo wasted no time with veteran Dr. Freddy Meyers and took two straight falls in 19:24 and 8:20.
