Kitzmiller Gets Even Mat Break

The Oregonian – March 14, 1944

Husky George Kitzmiller managed to dump Jack Lipscomb in his “double main event” at the Labor Temple mat matches Monday night, but lacked the zip to make it a clean sweep in one of the hottest cards seen in several weeks.

As soon as Lipscomb was eliminated, Buck Davidson, bow-legged ex-cowpuncher, leaped into the ring and after a 20-minute struggle managed to pin Kitzmiller with a crab hold. The latter had agreed to take on both men, one at a time, and put up a stiff argument.

Jack Kiser dumped Bulldog Jackson in a slam-bang semi-windup, and Billy McEuin and Toothless Tex Porter drew, with one fall each, in the opener.
