Four Mat Stars On Tag Program Yon Ludwig and Welch Win Oppose Team Of Canny and Malone THE CAltn AU.-STAU TAG MATCH Roy Welch (2151 and Otlo Von Ludwig (198) versus "Wild Hill" Cattily (215) and liilclie Malono (205) Two Iiesl falls of three, ,10-mijnilc (imc limit. Preliminaries Welch versus Canny—single fall . M.duiie vcnsus Von I.uclwijj—single fall Thirfy-miuufe lime limil each. Another (hi-llling chapter in the action-packed fend between "Wild Bill" Canny, Ihe Allanta rubber man, and Roy Welch, older member of the famed Welch brothers, will be scrawled (anight as the two fighting giants clash in one feature of Promoter Mike Mcroney's weekly wrestling program al the American Legion. Starling lime hns been moved up 15 minutes, starting now at 8:15. Gels Double Dose I Local ring enthusiasts will get n double dose of the famous feud thai makes the traditional .HalfieUl-Me- Coys argument look like «n afternoon tea party by comparison. They are scheduled lo each oth- ' er in the main event tag match after they get off a single fall preliminary which has a half-hour time limit. Welch teams with Otlo Von Ludwig, the mcanie who recently shed his whiskers, for the first time In the Bl/thcvllle American Legion ring. They will oppose by the Ing team of Canny and "Irish Eddie" Malone, the good natural, smiling favorite. The team event is scheduled for th e usual 00 minutes, or less, (wo best falls of three deciding the winner. Mnlonc and-Von Ludwig Innsle in the other single fall preliminary to complete the program which Is expected to go down in local ring annuls n.s nn fiction clnsf le. Have Tivlii-Ileadiiche Tlie veteran Welch, dean of the local wrestlers, may have double trouble staring him in the face during the evening, For he isn't on speaking terms with either Canny or Malone. He hns a pel grudge against both which should help to add on the fuel and mnke the flame glow even brighter and action wage hotter before the finish. Three weeks ago Welch and Malone clashed in the legion ring for the" first time since lliev ran -inlo differences and that liattlc was something to watch. Eddie defeated Hoy via the kayo method as a climax to the bristling fistic duel However, Welch gained some revenge and consolation as hi- and Stocky Kncilsen paired to down Malone and Jo c Estes in the tag feature.- And did they pour u on Mnlonel ; .. Eddie likely hns not forgotten that she-Mucking and now has it partner capable of dealing out punishment in wholesale lots; a playmate who hns his own ideas atoiil whom to pick on and why. Boast Formidable Team In Von Ludivjg I?oy also boasts a rough male who plays second fiddle to no one when it comes to double .tough tactics. Its right down his alley Ihis rneanie stuff, as revealed by his past record. Von Ludwig is anxious to get back on the winning beam here. A month ago hc returned to his former regular haunts nfler nn absence of mor e than n year and proceeded to take a beating from the elongated Roy Allen In n fast- and exciting match that almost rivaled the preceding Chris Belkas-Tufiy Tnics- dale affair. It all adds up lo a fine, lorried session of rough grappling which should keep the expected packed house on edge, 15 minutes earlier than usual. BLYT1IEVILLE (ARK.). COUIUER NEWS •te , , DOPE BUCKET MAY ClliT ClIANClv Mississippi County, Osccoln in particular, may soon boast a native son In the major baseball leagues. Before another season joll.s around William Thrace Ramsey, handsome young Osccollan, likely will be wearing the livery of one of tlie 10 members of the American and National Leagues. Basis for .such a statement comes from sports writers on (he West const who have been high on the fast giant who lust year compiled a fine record as a member ot the Sacramento club in the Pacific Coast League. Playing his first full season in the rast AA league, just a step nH'ny from the majors, Thrace did all right, especially for a freshman, anil Is expected to be on the Ivory market for some scout to gobble up for his boss. In addition (o leading his own males In almost everything In the baseball category—triples, slolen bases, runs batted In, lotal bases, and runs scored, Thrace wound up with n mace mark of .285, which is not bad at all for a youngster just fresh out of the bushes. The former Osccola high school star athlete not only rated high among the league outfielders, but set the pace In stolen bases, triples and runs scored. That record is all the more plienominnl in view of the fact that ho was In the leadoff spot, considered by able baseball men ns the toughest in the entire lineup. OIVK.V HIGH HATING Just which club will get Raniey Is a matter of conjecture. A pretty fanoy price lag has been placed on htm and several teams are known lo be Interested. Right now tlie St. Louis Cardinals have the inside track. When they sold the Sacramento club to n group of business men In the city there was an agreement that the Red Birds would have an option on one plny- cr. It is snld that Thrace is under consideration, especially In jlicw of the fact that Terry Moore. and "County" Slaughter are in the nv- y and the Worlds Champions mid do with some outfield rengtli. Earl Shccley, former major league ar who manages the Solons, Is ic of Ramsey's strongest boosters, c has recommended him lo tlie irdinals and predicts he will be- une one of the games greatest Her gardener.

They're watching McKcever and IMulk build up to what may be one of tlie biggest games of the 194-1 football season. Notre Dame meets Army in New York's Yankee Stadium on November llth, and the game has been sold out for wcecks. Some 70,000 people will see n. For the Army, n victory would be like a drink of water after six months In tlie itcsert. The soldiers haven't tauten Notre Dame since 19.11. They did hold the Irish to a scoreless tie in 19-11, but Red Blalk's men haven't scored on South Bend boys In their last five names. McKecvor's hard-numlng «jolre Dame boys have been running their scores Into telephone-number figures this season. They trounced Dartmouth 0-1 to 0 on Saturday. lint on Hint same ilny Army played a linmc that gives something of a line on how the soldiers stack up against Ihc Fighting Irish. j Army tore a helpless Pittsburgh team to shreds nt West Point, The [Cadets rammed a 69 to 7 defeat down Ihc thioals of Ihe once-mighty Panthers. On the basis of comparative scores Unit makes Army four points better than Notre Dame. The Irish ran the score to 58 to 0 against Pill, Taking Pitt's 7 from Army's 8!) leaves 62—four bedel- limn Notre Dame. Those comparative scores may nol mean much when McKcever turns Bob Kelly and Holey Dancowlcz loose in the Soldiers with Fat Pilley tead- ng tiie way from his guard post.
