Casey Relies On Killarney Hold

The Modesto Bee – April 6, 1945

Irish Jim Casey, will rely on his Killarney flip hold to overcome a big weight advantage his opponent, Ben Morgan, will enjoy when they meet in tomorrow night’s main wrestling event on the Disabled American Veteran’s card in the Uptown Arena.

Big Ben will outweigh Casey between 35 and 40 pounds.  However, the Irishman is faster than his bearded foe and has a wider variety of holds.  Their match carries a one hour time limit.

Earle McCready, British Empire champion, will be facing his sternest competition  here when he meets John Katan, the urgly Russian, in the 40 minute, two in three semi-windup.
