ArmDrag.com is looking for volunteers to help populate the Archives.
We're not only looking for results, but tournament brackets, photos, and
articles as well. Many college and public libraries have microform copies
of complete newspapers dating back over 100 years. In them, you can find
lots of wrestling results. If you enjoy doing research, and you have some time,
make a trip to the library and check it out. Ask a librarian how to get
started and how to print out the articles that you find.

Leighton Van Arnam,
sophomore wrestler at Syracuse University, furnished the stellar match as
Syracuse triumphed over the Alfred wrestling team in the festival at Archbold
gymnasium last night when he threw Stearns, 190 pound Alfred grappler, after
having battled on even terms with the visitor for five minutes. Stearns,
muscular wrestling veteran in the unlimited class for Alfred, showed many tricks
in his attempt to throw Van Arnam during the first five minutes in their match
but his condition became greatly weakened.
"Blonde" Van Arnam, who hails from the "wilds" of Beaver Falls in the "north
country" and is cousin of John "Heavy" Van Arnam, Orange football scout, gave a
wonderful display of grit as he forced his huge opponent to the mat after a bit
more than seven minutes of wrestling for a "touch." The Alfred team was defeated
five matches to two. Allen in the 115 pounds and Phillips in the 155 pound class
were forced to yield to the visitors. Costello, Captain Jeffers, Aunger and
Klein were winners for Syracuse in 125, 135, 145 and 175 pound classes.
Captain Jeffers and Aunger of Syracuse and Caruso and Grantler of Alfred scored
falls after little more than one minute of wrestling. Costello threw Adams of
Alfred after a bit more than two minutes. Klein triumphed over Meghellis in the
only referee's decision of the evening. Mighellis was on the defensive at all
Dunn showed an edge over Orleans and Jules Schwadron had the advantage over Stan
Mahon in two
exhibitions bouts that preceded the wrestling. These Hill boxing candidates
fought in two round bouts.
