    Original caption: The fans were a bit perturbed during Tuesday night's wrestling main event at the Auditorium. Some especially didn't like referee Joe Krejci of Omaha after he disqualified Butch Levy. And here one throws his program at Krejci as loser Levy looks on. (The Minneapolis Star, 14 December 1949)
