RIKND GIVES ADDED INFORMATION Ever since the rumor that Marshall niackard had received serious wounds during the fighting In France got started I have made every effort to get it straight, right or wrong. Wlieic It. got started- no one seems to know, but. from the Information Ills mother, Mrs. Well Blackard, received last week In a letler written In neat, steady long hand, there Is every Indication that the rumor Is foundlcss. The big cx- Chlck griridcr and scout master told her .that he was all In one piece and mentioned that he look a walk witli Captain Gene Bradley, former local lawyer. That statement alone would tend to discredit the report that he had lost a leg; the legible, stcndy band that he sill was In possession of his arms. Yesterday I received a letter from , Captain Bradley and he makes no hlnl that Marshall had been seriously injured. It follows: 74th Gen. Hospital APO 508, % PM, N. Y. City August 21, 10U England. Dear J. P. (Dope Bucket): Have been receiving my copy o Hie Blythevllle Courier as rcgula as the mal] service permits and must confess your "Dope Bucket greatest Intcres those kind wolds creates . the (Thnnks [or chnml) READS PAPKIl CI.OSKIA' However, the local and stale po lltlcnl news these past weeks hav not slipped my eye, The editor would be surprised to know, I'm sure, that we fellows over here and other parts of the world, not only rend every news item, but every ad, legal publication, etc. In fact, this war Is developing some of the very best proof readers. I am now well Into my third year of army life with grcal expec- Contrasting Matches Likely Two sharply contrasting matches are In store for the customers. The Truesdale-Carlln affair should develop into a highly skilled, yet fast moving Interspersed with ample /Ire- works and the usual amount of showmanship and ring color. Never a champion, Carlin lias met some of the best the game has ever produced. His greatest match, and one of the greatest on record In the ring's packed history, was several years ago when he battled Champion Jack Reynolds for two hours 40 minutes. The monumental classic held at Louisville, Ky., and drew a recbrd $18,000 gate, went down In nonc the record books as one of the best n r<l. of all times. Tha fact that Reyn- olos, long a kingpin among the welters, was the winner Is beside the point and shrinks Into insighlfl cance before the clever grappling exhibition. .Truesdale will have age In his fa vor, He is a lew years-younge than' his adversary, but gives awa several pounds in weight, to sa nothing of some years of valuabl experience. He Is said to be very fast and.clever. The' fact that he Is champion of Mexico carries great significance. May Revive Tackle Some 100 pounds lighter, Moody may be forced to bring into play some of the tricks employed on the gridiron to down the huge Indian. Jack, who was quite a rough young man with the Lynx, has not forgotten how to block find tackle since trading the moleskins for wrestling trunks and probably will use plenty of both before the anticipated rough match is terminated. Moody also Is due to do some head squeezing with 'his famed headlock, patterned along the lines of that used so successfully by the great Strangler Lewis, one of the world's greatest of all times. Big, powerful and unusually fast and agile for his bulk, Sannooke's pet habit is to batter his foe to the mat, step back a few feet then take a running jump and land with full . force on his victim. And victim It is when he lands broadside. He seldom misses. They seldom survive. tations that another won't pass ere long we resume the status of "hon- ast-to-gooilness civilians". Ever since T have been in the army I have been looking forward to clay running Into someone from Blylhcvillc, Been In and through 7 different slates and three foreign ountrlcs these past years and up ntil several weeks ago I had nol et seen anyone from home. 1 can'1 ;ivc the exact dctlc for security •casoris, hut not long ago someone cut me word to hurry over lo a cer- ain captain's office.
