American Continental Weight Lifters’ Association Notes – Strength Magazine – February, 1926

November 7th saw another exhibition come and go. The card was strictly an amateur one, and passed off without anything sensational taking place. Two new aspirants to weight-lifting honors made their debut before the enthusiastic followers of the iron sport; namely, Harry Freeman, of Baltimore, Md., who made the lightweight class, weighing 130 lbs. stripped, but who is naturally a featherweight. He made an effort to win the A.C.W.L.A. gold medal by equalling the total in the lightweight schedule. Unfortunately, he failed by 45 pounds, scoring 912 pounds on the five lifts, against 957 pounds called for by the Association schedule.
