(UP) — Ti»e lowly IJltle Rock .-Travelers are on their way home today— and while they are only In seventh petition in the Southern Association standings things looker brlghl- *^ for Wtlils Hudlin's team than at a«y time during the past month. -The Travelers, last night, defeated the Nashville Vols for' the third straight time to sweep the scries and in the last two games Hudlin came up with two new pitchers who both came through with shutouts, .Following Elwood Knierim's four- hit job against the Vols Thursday night, Bob Raney followed up..with a one-hit performance last niglil while his mates backed him up wtth. a 12 hit attack lhat netted an 11 to 0 win.

The running of the $100,000 added Bel- Belmont is a mile and n hi>;t- inont Stakes. If he wins It, the King. Ranch speed king will become tlie seventh horse in racing history lo accomplish the feat, for just like his daddy, Bold Venture did 10 years ago, he already has won tlie Derby and the Prcakness. His sire was prevented from going after the third leg by an injury. Only Gallant Fox, Sir partoii, Omnlin, vvhttlaway, War Admiral and Count Fleet ever have been fible to win the big three and although Assaull was- facing a formidable! field, the overnight bettlnij was l> to 5 that he would do it.

This match will be followed by a tut; match between Jack Lame and thc I31ack Hornet booked opposite Tex lliley and Gus Johnson. Bolh women wrestlers have appeared here before. Promoter Mike Mcroncy says that both are gootl wrestlers and should give a good exhibition, probably spiced with n little rough stuff. Limie and the Hornet arc bis and roufih wrestlers according to Promoter Mcroncy, however, but their opponents, Rilcy and Johnson, arc well equipped for the Brunt and groan business, too. Rilcy weighs around 215 pounds yet Is as fust as a man weighing much less. He appears lo be moving slow when in reality he is making every move count which puts him out in front with unite a few of his opponents. Johnson's style, Mcroncy says, Is along the same order of Rlley's so Ihis should be :i very inlcresting bout. The first match is scheduled to start promptly at 8:15 p.m. AMERICAN LEAGUE W. L. Pet.
