McCutcheon turned about and called the play safe. With that Mauldin dashed to score. Manager Paul Chervlnko set up a din and was bounced out of the ;ame. Pele Wojey followed.

Canny, who has been around the local circuit for nearly two decades will bring along Al Oetz, another veteran bad man, as his partner in the tag match feature bout with Billy Hickson and Jo« Welch furnishing the opposition. Canny is best remembered for the not-so-long-ago days when he paired with rough Red Roberts to form one of the best tag match teams ever to perform here. However, Canny and Roberts separated a year or so ago and lately Getz has been teaming with the bustling Knnsan. To many of Blylheville 1 fans Hickson is a newcomer to the Auditorium ring. He returned to Bly- thevillo last week after an absence or more than six years to (earn with Johnny Carlin in a match with Roberts and Elmer Davis.

In addition to the main event two one-fall preliminary bouts also are on the card. In the first, liick- son will tangle with Canny and m the second Welch will take on Getz. .n rrv?
