Associated Press – January 25, 1908

UTICA, N.Y. – Frank Gotch, the American wrestling champion, won his match with Albert Solomon last night by taking the first two falls. Solomon made a determined fight to stay with the champion, but Gotch’s famous toe hold was too much for him.

Gotch today received a telegram from Dr. B.F. Roller of Seattle, challenging him to a catch-as-catch-can wrestling match, to take place in Seattle. Gotch stated he would consider the challenge.
