Counting Meroney, who will serve «s tile Hilly man in the i-lng, more than a half ton of the finest rln» flesh In the business will be exhibited In what bid fair to developing Into the free-for-all of all I'rce-for-alls. Wait tor Return Tlie rabid wrestling fans,, who go in for rough, tough tag matches are nil set for (his one which will mark the return of the No. 1 team of "Wild Bill" canny, the Atlanta rubber man, and his meanle partner, "Rough Red" Roberts, the LH-. He Hoclc undertaker. Making their first appearance as a tag team In several months, Canny nnd Roberta will try to tame "Big Jim" Parker and "Buck" Lawson at least twice in an hour and « lialf. Under the tag rules the winners must throw both monitors of the opposing team to count for the single fall. This is the only arena on the entire circuits where such a nile Is In vogue, which gives the local faithfuls an extra break. For Hie curtain raisers, Promoter Meroney 'lias paired off Parker against Roberts, and Lawson against Canny. A single fall decides each wlniler, with a 30- mlnnte time limit apiece. Occupy Strange I'lace Canny and Roberts occupy a strange and unusual place in the affections of Blythcvillc ring fans. There nrc none who draws as much' ire and indignation from the customers as docs either one of the villainous pair. They make no bones, do not try to disguise their efforts inside the ring. They arc meanics an ( | proud of It. The boos and Insulting remarks from the gallery nnd ringside are as so much music to them. They simply thrive on it, and of late their diet has been anything but lean. While expert showmen and boast a thousand tricks apiece, both arc fine wrestlers. Canny la one of the hardest hitters in the game, and also (he roughest, He has a playful partner In this fellow, Roberts. «')io can match his rough, 'tough qualities with the best of sandiia- per qualities. Make First Start ';, For Parker nnd Lawson this match marks their first local start ns a tag team. But from all Indications it should not be a novelty. Both have been at this sort of stuff for many, many years with phcnomlna! success.
