Mexico Military Academy lost every match and went down by a score of 40 to 0 here yesterday afternoon as Pat Bradshaw's Chillicothe High School wrestlers opened their 1941 season. Chillicothe won every bout by a fall.
     Although the Hornets were reported inexperienced, they wrestled with an enthusiastic vigor which was mere than encouraging against an M.M.A team described as "better than it was last year" when Chillicothe defeated them here.
