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.

year's squad. The new squad therefore had to be organized mainly from Freshmen
and Junior men. From this squad a very good team was formed and Mechanics
Institute was in a position to schedule six meets.
With only two of our varsity squad leaving, next year looks very promising.
Already schools who were previously on Mechanics Institute regular schedule in
the past are asking for meets to be scheduled for next year.

Johnson, 175; Walter Navik, 165; Bob Kliefgen, 155; Leonard Sobel, 145; Jim
