Beell Meets Lewis Tonight

Chicago Tribune – February 9, 1914

Fred Beell, the Wisconsin grappler, and Ed (Strangler) Lewis of Lexington, Ky., will meet in the main event of the wrestling show tonight at the Empire under the auspices of the newly organized Madison A.C.

This bout will be Beell’s first contest since he announced his intention to return to the game. He has worked hard for the match. In Lewis he will meet one of the most promising wrestlers seen in Chicago in years. The grapplers are evenly matched in weight, but Lewis will have the advantage in height and reach.

In the semi-windup Theodore Peters of St. Paul will meet John Arvidson of Moose Jaw, Canada. In the other bouts Ernst Kartje will grapple with Peter Kohotovitch and Walter Evans will be pitted against Ted Tonneman.
