"Irish Eddie" Malone, the 225- .pound smiling Irishman, proved too . lough • aiid versatile for "Rough Red" Roberts as he swept through two falls after dropping the first in the program Hnale. Apparently . cm the downgrade and reeling on the verge of defeat, Allen made a gallant comeback to down Belkas in a cleverly tough! scientific duel.that rivals any ever Staged 1n the local legion arena. With the score in falls standing at on e apiece and the deciding mutch hanging' oil .the..'balance, Chris ' made one serious mistake and it cost hlm : the match, his initial ; loss over the' three-fall route since Joining the local 'post.

Tlie blow not only ' floored tlie soldier, but knocked the wind out ot him, making it comparatively easy for Allen to crawl auoard with a body pin that scaled the match.

A fall out of the ring helped Allen to even the match. During some a lick on the head that obviously rattled him. As he slowly regained the ring Allen was waiting, for him —with both feet.

MOVES CI.OSKIl HOME The "Wimp" is moving closer to Senators Hand Failing Yanks Another Defeat By United Press The fast-slipping New York Yankees have taken another beating. The Washington Senators served them a 4 to 3 defeat In an 11-in- uing game under nrcUglita at Washington. The loss dropped the Yanks Into sixth place In the American League. The Chicago White Sox, Hi rough no effort of their own, moved Into a third place tie with the Tigers. And the Indians arc on the fifth rung. The Senators took the lead In the first inning, a precarious one-run lead, The Yanks tied the score In the fourth. John Nlggeling — who went the distance for the Senators hurling six-hit hall—held the New Yorkers scoreless through the ninth Inning. But they broke through In the 10th frame am scored twice.

Hi:i.rOitI> I United i'rcss Correspondent 'LITTLE ROCK, June 13. <UD— Arkansas fishermen have been cry- ng their eyes out since the fish season got muter way three weeks ago. High water and non-biting fish seem to be the causes for most kicks. Hut a report from a dycd-ln-lhc wool line swinger from Batcsville Drlngs the other side of the fishing situation, Seems this particular fisherman is catching the fish i he want-sand then some. Takes him only about four hours to catch the limit. The Informant says that Lock and Dam No. 1, about a mile south of Batcsville on the White river, is truly a "fisherman's paradise." It's one of those spots where a fellow can do practically any kind of fishing his heart desires — and have success at it. At present, white bass black bass, and crapplc are the prln fish being caught In the lake Good strings of yellow and channe cat, jack salmon, perch and brean arc also l>cihg caught.

And then i friend spent less than four hours MI the dam—and came home with i nice striiiK of bass. The fish av- Tngcd nearly two pounds each. The waters arc evidently well- stocked with fish, for the reporter says that he has seen as many as COO fish of all types caught at the dam In one day'sTislilng. Moreover, fishing continues good it Ihc dam throughout the summer months. But Lock and Dam No. 1 isn't the only crackerjack fishing spot around Batesville. Good strings are Dcing caught at Rocky bayon, Dota creek, Ramsey slough, Wolf bayou, nuddcll's creek and Salado creek. It looks as If plenty of Arkansas fishermen are missing a good bet by not dropping their lines in the wa- lers around Batesville. The report on lishing iu that area is tlie best Ibis column has had yet. Seeds Gets A'rounil Manager Bob Seeds of the Lillle Rock Travelers is the perfect example of a versatile baseball player. He is nothing short of a one man baseball squad. The veteran often confuses score keepers by playing several positions during a single game. He can plaj six or seven spols on the dlamoiu —all with ease. In a game with Atlanta recently versatile Bob managed the lean opened nt short-stop, was the win nliig pilcher in relief—and woum up • in right field, All in a singl' illcd In as relief pitcher. Bill Dickey, who spent 16 years .s a regular catcher with the New York Yankees, Is at Fort Schuyler, N I. Y., for Indoctrination and tcin- wrary physical tralnin'g duty. The ''1-year-old diamond veteran 'was worn into the Naval Reserve al Memphis June 3 as a lieulenant. Dickey, who played with the Trav- •>lers in 1925, 1926 and 1028, did not return to the game this season, but •emaincd at his Little Rock home vilh his wife and 10-year-olrtc daughter. .~' Blythevillc Army Air Field has cn- ered the second Mid-South Service baseball tournament, which is to be played at Memphis June 30, July 1 and 2. ...
