Mat Features Cram Card

The Oregonian – October 27, 1940

The greatest array of grappling talent ever assembled at the Labor Temple arena will appear on Herb Owen’s weekly card Friday night. For the first time since Owen began his mat promotion in Portland eight years ago he finds himself confronted with so many headline wrestlers he is forced to schedule three main events in order to do justice to the top-ranking talent.

Heading the impressive list is the one and only Bulldog Jackson, the “Alaskan terror.” Jackson will tackle Otis Clingman, Oklahoma cow puncher, in the final match of the card.

Billy Raburn of Georgia, holder of the Pacific Coast light heavyweight title, will make his bow in the semi-windup. Raburn will meet George Kitzmiller, Portland.

Jesse James, Greek whirlwind who made a sensational bow last week, will take on Babe Small, Kenton, in the other tussle.
