Vit * V? PAGE SPC BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.), COURIER NEWS MONDAY, 'APRIL 20, 1942 Tag Wrestle To Feature Arena Card and furious action will be the order on Promoter Mike Mero- liey's mat-card at th* Legion Arena tonight when four burley battlers of the game step through the ropes to square off in a very popular type of wrestling known as the tag match. Mike O'Malley, the man of the powerful punches, and Roy Welch, wily veteran of the ring, will take on Eddie Malone, the Irish lad, and rough Red Roberts iri the feature fracas of the evening. "After several weeks absence the tag match wrestle,- which is rapidly becoming' more popular to local fans than any other type, will grace tonight's card. The two opposing combinations should introduce many new wrestling thrills when they step into the ring to start the ball rolling. With such men as O'Malley, Roberts, Welch, and Malone in the same ring anything could happen. Even though the tag wrestle calls for only two men in the ring at one time there is little doubt that- the matmen won't help their partners when the ne- cfssity arises. -O'Malley is one of the most dangerous men in the business packing enough power in his mighty arms to turn out the lights for the best of them. In recent appearances O'Malley has used these, arms exclusively to leave the ring on many occasions with his opponent unable to' do so under his own power. Crushing blows to the heart of his adversary are the most effective weapons of the husky hammerer who has "used these tactics in all First Woman Wins McKenney Troph> Earl Mitchell Has Too Many Trophies BLOOMINGTON, Ind.—Earl Mitchell, Indiana's phenomenal sophomore milcr, is wondering whether it Is advisable to win any more important rces.

(UP) — The Ebbets Field conception of the Broadway melodrama, Arsenic and Old Lace—Durccher and Old Walker—was booked for a long run today with smooth-talking, Georgia-born Dixie handling most of the lines. Fred, commonly called Dixie by his faithful .Flatbush fanciers, annually plays the role of chief; goat in baseball's most amusing sideshow which envelopes the entire Brooklyn Dodgers club and most of its fans when Manager Leo tries to shunt his veteran to a second-stringer's role each spring. ..,.„, 7 It usually takes Dixie about two ' -Little HOCK weeks to take the right field job Nashvillt <* from whomever has it at the mo- Atlanta ' ment but Walker beat the gun by New Orleans several days yesterday when he I Memphis ... led Brooklyn to a 6-2 triumph over I Knoxville .. .The Baseball Standings /( Today's Sports Parade BY JACK GUENTI1E11 j beaten by a better horse and were HAVRE DE GRACE, Md., April lucky all the way."

When he goes, that great, glittering question mark still will be dangling around his chocolate brown neck. When the engineer signals the times now and I don't know if he will ever answer it. If you happen to like Requested you can put together an excuse. The torrid Texan hadn't been aired in competition for some six weeks and he may have needed work. Like Alsab, he is a good horse, but he has only the Flamingo triumph to indicate that departure with a cheery toot-toot, he is good enough. SOUTH Ell X LEAGUE W. L. Pet. 2 .778 3 .727 Mrs. A. M.

The 1941 juvenile champ was beaten twice and Requested dropped the nod in his only start. Form players were badly burned and the men who masquerade as experts weren't impressed.

Both hacl a freewheeling chance to run when it was time to run, but the aforementioned Colchis picked 'em up and put 'em down with speed the Derby darlings couldn't match. Brother C., as you may know, isn't eligible for the Derby, but will run in the Prcakncss. He ran a whacking: good Chesapeake as far as he went—but he didn't go far enough. That race is only a mile and 1-1G, and the time was what you might expect of Ernie Lom- barcli. pertinent point: Colc"is tire, Happy Argo, isn't noted for stamina.
