Former Lineville Boy Will Wrestle World's Champion
The following was clipped from the Des Moines Register of a recent issue and concerns Harry Kahoe, wrestler. When Harry meets Parcant it will be for the championship, an honor for which Kahoe has faithfully trained and worked for months. Here is hoping he is successful and wins the title of middle weight champion of the world:
Cherokee, Ia., March 26-(Special) - Harry Kahoe of Cherokee defeated Claud Strong of Des Moines here last night in straight falls. Kahoe won the first fall in 24:00 with a crossover toe hold and the second in 31:00 with a bar armlock. As a result of his victory Kahoe will meet Ralph Parcant here the contract having been signed and money posted.
