Ml Team Event At Arena On Friday The weatherman would not let many ring enthusiasts attend the matches last week by his too frequent and too plentiful rainfall, but Promoter Billy Romonoff is making it up to them this week for the flaw performances they missed last Friday night. m The tag team main event brings top wrestlers together for the final settlement of the claims that have been established here in previous weeks. The feud between Balk Estes, Elk City cowboy, and Rex Mobley, light heavyweight champion of the world, will be revived The king, Mobley, had rather anvone except Estes but feels it be able to handle him with Vfcitey Grovo as his partner. Cecil McGill. Pacific coast sensation, has had crr:evances against the cir-cm meatier aver since he bowed to him in a match here and will to) shooting straight and hard to win the match. fitozw mm three ways the bout could wind up: first, the light heavyweight king and his partner, Gorvo, could win and by so doing dim toe brilliance of two of the up-end -coming wrestlers of today. By retaining themselves to the limelight, they could continue their regime as the greatest combination and individuals the mid-South mat has ever seen. Secondly, the challengers could win undisputed rights and start the invincible team on toe road down, off the pedestal they have held for a long time. The entrance of a new era for mat tone may be ushered in Friday night. Thirdly, there could be default or some point or technicality ".a wtodd canoe tot match to hang in toe balance to be settled at a later date. Even that would be moral victory tor the youngsters. Such an accomplishment would be something that has not happened to either of the oldsters m many moons.

By LAWTON CARVER NEW YORK, Dec. 17 (INS) For the first time in the history of the Larcenous business known as boxing the heavyweight champion of the world, Joe Louis, is going to defend his title without remuneration. Here Is a standard for all the fighters that may come along next week, next month, next year and thereafter. In contrast to champions of the past who evaded the draft and never got into the army, and in the meantime fought for charity to bolster their own pocketbooks, Louis first is going to appear once with his title on the line free of charge and then is going to go into the army, or wherever they want him. If I'm not careful, I will make this a eulogy of Louis. To me he is about to become the unselfish outstanding patriot of these times. Ail to Navy Oettlng entirely away from the patriotism involved in' his possible going into the army, he is about to defend his world heavyweight championship against Buddy Baer. Louis is going to fight for nothing, and risk his title against the man who knocked him out of the ring in a previous encounter. Promoter Mike Jacobs is handling the show free of charge with all profits to go to the naval relief organization that will get Louis' purse. This battle is slatrf for t. a here in New York and both principal appeared before the New York state athletic commission yesterday for a preliminary checkup. The only angle subject to criticism in this deal involves Buddv Baer himself. And at this point I wish to take off on him, on his brother Max and on their manager, Ancil Hoffman. It will be recalled that Max Baer ua Uieen bouncing in and out of big time for years. It will be recalled too, that Ancil Hoffmann. v . , ms repeated come Giant's Coach Is Optimistic Toward Sunday's Struggle By JACK MAHON NEW YORK, Dec. 17 (INS) You've heard of that guy Danny who took a stroll in the lion's den and you may have read of little Davie who took a belt out of Go-hath. Well, they're just prelim boys, my friends, just prelim boys. Your correspondent is the guy who walked up to Coach Steve Owen of the New York football Giants today and asked: "How do you think your guys are going to do against the Chicago Bears next Sunday?" If you don't think this makes! those historical heroes look like muggs, just realize popping that question at Owen is equivalent to asking a guy to his own funeral. Steve made the sorry mistake of bringing most of his boys to the windy city last Sunday to watch Chicago rout Green Bay, 33 to 14, in what was supposed to be a playoff game. He has been trying to convince them (and himself) ever since that it was nothing more than a bad dream and anyone who calls himself a New Yorker or a friend of Steve's has kept a respectful dis tance from and silence on the sub "fSSfS SP0 ATTTEMPT The Green Bay Packers' line failed to hold when Two Jackson Youths Given Mississippi State Letters ject of the week-end's World Series battle of professional football. We have an "in" with Steve, however, (we once gave him a horse at Santa Anita that paid 12 to 1) so we charged in bravely to get his slant on the big ball gams. Great Club "They've got a great ball club," he admitted sadly, "and there's no use kidding about it. But I've told our boys they can lick 'em and I think they believe they can. The Bears can be scored on if you can get the jump on them. They have to be throttled hard in the first half and if you can do it and get out in front of them, you can beat them. Once they get going and get m front there's nothing much that you can do about it."

Dec. 17 (B Forget for the moment the football season Is just over and think of the three men whose names were most prominent in sports news in 1941. You'll probably come up with names of the athletes who were listed 1-2-3 by 82 sports experts participating in the annual associated press poll. They were Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams and Joe Louis. DiMaggio's name appeared first on 42 ballots and either second or third on 20 others as tribute to his record-smashing feat of hitting in 56 consecutive American League games and leading the New York Yankees to the pennant and the world championship. His tremendous margin over Williams, who won the American League batting championship with a .406 average and the home run title as well, is due, perhaps, to jolting Joe's ability to lift the entire Yankee team with him to winning heights. In the voting, DiMaggio polled 157 points to 74 for Williams, who received only five first place votes. Louis, who defended his world heavyweight title seven times during the year, was so far ahead in the realm of boxing that there wasn't even a contest. Still he received only ten first-place ballots and 64 points. National open arolf champion Craig Wood earned fourth place on the list with 27 points, just four more than Don Hutson, Green Bay Packers' end, whose presence near the head of the list emphasized the fact that 1941 failed to produce a super-star in football. Last year the No. 1 man was Michigan's Tommy Harmon and the year before it was Nile Kinnick of Iowa. This year's college grid leaders were Bruce Smith of Minnesota and Frank Sinkwich of Georgia, each rated tops by three voters for totals of 16 and 12 points, respectively. Between these two on the list were Cornelius War -merdam, the Pole Vaulter, with 14 points and golfer Ben Hogan with 13. Leaders In other sports were Bill Smith, the Hawaiian swimmer, with five points; Bobby Riggs, national tennis champion, with two; Willie Hoppe, Billiards, Joe Platak, handball, and Ned Day, bowling, one point each. . STATE COLLEGE. Dec. 17 The awarding of letters to thirty-one members of Mississippi State College's 1941 Southeastern Conference championship football team has been announced by Head Coach Allyn McKeen.
