i>AGE EIGHT BLYTIIEVILLE COUJUKK NKVV'S Parker Subdues Two Opponents ; Portner Eliminated, > But Big Jim Defeats Belkas And Canny Enacting the role of "Iron rmrn" i$ getting {o be n popular hnbit wllh>.VBlg ilm 1 '.. Parker. i-Th'e ': 225-pound • loughte came through with successive victories over Bill Canny and Staff Eergt Chris Bclkns, alter his pvtnci, Yaqul Joe, had been disposed of, to lead his teajii to n thrilling triumph In .'the, feature. tag match of Prompter ',- Mike ' Mcroney's 'weekly TVTestlinB program last night at the American Legion arena. ;"Blg Jim", however, can thank ; ln IIQ small measure, the contempt which ' Canny has for Merone)' for his .spectacular double victory, his second 'in .four .starts. , For 'he was well on the road to defeat at the hands of "Wild Bill" when he received a break which he was able to 'turn into a win. • . . Tlie trouble began after Canny had bulldozed and manhandled YaqurJoe into surrendering will) a surf board, . and Parker bounced smaller Belkas on his knee with a back breaker, in Hie third fall. That set • up the match on an even-stc- phen basis, one fall apiece and half or the finale. .• Bill Gets Tough .'"Wild Bill" came tearing out of his corner, like an enraged bull and proceeded, to give Parker a thorough going over with everything .he'had in his bag of modem wrestling' tricks. His principal Item was by clicking.. Naturally, Referee Merdney: didn't stand lor much of that and kept pulling Canny loose every tjrne he went at- Parker's throat. Finally, Canny got enough of the "Interference" and proceeded to turn his'attention to the otflclnl himself. Curing that lively melee "Big Jim" was. .able to come up for air and recover. So lie too joined in the twosome between Canny > and Meroney. He reached down, pulled BUI to'iits feet and clipped him with a,i:bcautlful .haymaker. It was a very ;sinipte -matter to fall on him for- 'the third - : and 'deciding fall, bfijJBlng together one of the wlcrd- est and comical matches of the season.; ';-.••- '- .• • :•'-, .-•'.-. • o ''' i :', '-Has Funny 'Mome ills .jMIUCn." of 'the; .comedy w&s ;sup- Plied , by',, tile ' :inimltlable .
