Miss Nelson Stays Limit

The Pittsburg Press – March 17, 1910

Last night at Harry Williams’ Academy Miss Cora Livingston, the champion female wrestler of the world, failed to throw Miss May Nelson of Pittsburg in the specified time of 15 minutes, thereby losing the forfeit money.  The match was wrestled catch-as-catch-can, with strangle holds barred, and was the outcome of Monday night’s encounter, when Miss Livingston failed to throw the local woman.  The same wrestlers will meet Friday evening in a bout to the finish.  Charles Rieneke will referee.
