Herriman Saturday

Sunday, February 2 1908 -- Battling Nelson and Rudy Unholz are meeting in the ring on Tuesday, the only time these friends shall become ring foes. Herriman plays on the situation for this large cartoon for the Sunday sports page.

Herriman also submits a graphic review of a new indoor circus, run by Dick Ferris on South Hill Street. A small affair with some dubious acts, the big hit of the show wasn't even a circus act, but singer Arthur "Rags" Wallace, who made up a song on the spot in which he commented on the other performers and many of the patrons in the stands.
