Jim Londos Still Has It, Pins Baxter

San Francisco Chronicle – December 14, 1938

Jeemy Londos, the Greek Adonis, still has what it takes.

Before a banner house at Dreamland last night, Londos reduced LaVerne Baxter, erstwhile “bad man,” to the status of teacher’s pet in two straight falls.

Londos won the first in 23:58, weakening Baxter with cradle holds and finishing him off with a body slam. The second fall took just 32 seconds.

Chief Thunderbird gave Dr. Freddie Meyers the “bird,” winning with an Indian death toe hold. Otto Kuss won from Benny Ginsberg with a flying head scissors. Pat O’Shocker downed Ted Key with a back breaker. Pierre Dusette body slammed Bronco Valdez into submission. Stan Myslack and Art Shires opened the show with a fast draw.
