IttGESIX BLYTHEV1LLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, MAY 11, 1942 Slick Senor -Popular Welch Brothers Will Form Combination In Match Tonight Wrestling thrills should be a dime a dozen at the Legion Arena tonight when Pete Sherman, worthy newcomer, 'teams with the rough and ready Buddy Knox -against the famous Welch brothel's in the -tag match which will head Promoter Mike Meronby's mat card. The tag match, probably because it.''provide? more opportunity for 'action, has fast become the type -ot -grappling most popular to local fans.. The spectators should get a rare treat in tonight's tangle, with .--~4pur men like Knox, Sherman and the"Welch brothers featured in this '•opeh type . of wrestling. ^Promoter Meroney has called on the! Welch combination, Joe and whose names demand a high :e of respect in the hall of 'martdom, in an attempt to find capable competition for Buddy : Kaox, who terrorized the local ring in several previous appearances here. Both Joe and Roy can dish •out-the punishment when the going -gets rough-but will probably have to call on every trick they know $f they subdue Sherman and Knox. Buddy Knox acquired his clinch- craft in college where he won the championship in his division. He •also excelled in football, basketball an'd baseball. Although he is inclined to the rough side of the game, his ability as a wrestler cannot be denied. Buddy has sufficient speed and ring skill, along with a few tricks of his qwn to make him a good hold swapper as well as master of the rough -and tumble tears which he has inaugurated in his previous bouts here. : Pete Sherman, who will assist 'Knox in his efforts against the Welch, combine, is rated as having something on the ball-himself and -should have some say-so about the •way things go tonight.

Fighters " Ready For Bell Tonight HOT SPRINGS, May 11.—Neither Lew Jenkins nor Jackie Byrd, who meet tonight in one of the biggest lights here in years, did any boxing yesterday. Both reported they were ready for the gong. Byrd and his manager, Joe Craig, pre- dieted victory over the former lightweight champion, while Jenkins and Mickey Riley, his mentor, scoffed at the thought the bout would end in anything but a knockout by Jenkins. Both men were to weigh in today at 2 p.m. Jenkins said Byrd signed to make 145 pounds at that time. Joe Craig said there was no such agreement. Byrd probably . . . , . , .... will weigh around 147, and Jen- ^vwed to take a bottle of lotion Hunting and Fishing Restrictions To Be Lifted Friday and Saturday Sportsmen may return to the woods and streams with the advent of open seasons on squirrel and black bass this week-end.

COMMISSIONER'S SALE Notice is hereby given that the undersigned commissioner, in compliance with the terms of a decree rendered by the Chancery Court for the Chickasawba Distric^ of Mississippi County. Arkansas, on the 11 day of April, 1942, wherein Business Men's Assurance Company was Plaintiff, No. 7653, and Roy Patterson, et al,. were Defendants, '.will sell at public auction to the highest and best bidder, for cash, on a credit of three months, at the front door of the Court House between the hours prescribed by law, in the City of Blythevilie Arkansas, on the 23 day of May 1942, the following real estate, towit: Said Commissioner shall firs offer for sale the following: Beginning at a point 10.48 chains Eas of the Southwest corner of the South Half of the South Eas Quarter of Section 15, Township 15 North, Range 11 East, Mississipp County, Arkansas, and running thence North 4.55 chains to stake: thence East 2.66 chains t( a stake; thence North 2.66 chain with them. Black bass and the artificial bait seasons open simultaneously Saturday. Size limits: Black bass, 10 inches; crappie or white perch, eight inches; wall-eyed pike, 14 inches. The daily bag limit of black bass, crappie, white striped or calico bass is 15. Fishermen may take 25 bream, black goggle- eyed, sun or any perch, or eight Balmon. But not, more than 25 in the aggregate of all species may be caught in a day. Tom Mull, the commission's edu- ational director, said high water nd reports from commercial net ishermen on the lower river tretches forecast "one of the best easons in years." "These commercial net fishermen eport they are returning to the vater hundreds "of crappie every day," Mr. Mull said. "They indicate a large movement of game Lsh has been made upstream to ipawn. If the water goes down to lormal before June, most of these ish will remain in the lakes and streams." Looks like a great night for the , wrestling fans. Promoter Mike Meroney has just about as good a card lined up tonight as will be seen in these parts. There isn't a grappler out of the four who can't be classified as a top- notcher. Roy Welch, in particular, is widely known and respected by the wrestling brethren. See where Alsab came through for me in the Preakness. In fact, not only did he win but he busted a track record—which, incidentally, was about the la,st thing I - ever expected him to do. Shut Out, of course, proved himself a morning glory. There's a nag that represents the corniest brand of racehorse flesh on the tracks today. He can go out in front when everything is perfect but he has the heart of a fiea-bitten skunk hide. went into the ring at fight time looking like the feature on a prohibition poster. Now, he says he's seen the light. Well, maybe, But, personally, I'll take a new deal. The "Dairy Maids" of the sporting world grow too thick anyhow.

They tell me that Dalton Taft, the long-hitting softballer, won't be playing this year. All of which, is very bad indeed. I knew Dalton 'way back yonder and I can tell you, he's not only a good ball player but he's a good team man too. That's a combination that's hard to beat. Noticed the other evening that there is a tennis court in Blythe- vilie. Of course, it's grown up in weeds and looks like the Indians were probably the last citizens who used it, but it's there nevertheless. You'll find it at the park if you look hard enough. My guess is that it would take all of a half- day to put it in shape for play. But, I'm beginning to think that the "Forgotten Man" they used to talk about during the depression must have been a tennis player. Seems the sport is a little too strenuous for most of the citizenry. . COACHES BECOME SIR •Morris Jacka guard in football by Tex Oliver and Vaughn Corley at Oregon, -and is still serving under them.
