Muskogee OK: November 15, 1933: Attorneys announce a settlement in the suit of wrestling referee Frank Thompson versus Tulsa promoter Sam Avey and Muskogee promoter Gene Ellis for $10,400 damages ... Thompson was tossed from a ring here last April by Paul Orth of Cincinnati, suffering a fractured leg ... "The referee asserted all events on the wrestling program were planned in advance, including the throwing of various combatants from the ring and 'swatting of the referee.' He alleged he was not notified, however, that he was to be tossed out of the ring and that he was unprepared for the jolt." --Associated Press, Nov. 16, 1933
