SIX ^ BL.YTHEVILLE (ARK.) CQURIEK NEWS MONDAY, SKPTKMHKU Canny To Meet Big Jack Moody Chris Belkas Slated To Face Roy Allen On Card At Arena Four mat' giants, with Wood In their eyes slid desire tor revenge In their breasts, are preparing to throw the bool> nt end. oilier as a double-barreled,feature of Promoter Mike MeroneS''s weekly wrestling show tonight at the American Legion Breim oti Nortli Second Sired. 'flic 1 'card, one of the most out- fiandl.ig and promtslng of tho year, calls for two full length .11- .dividual' matches, oncl) carrying it 90-mimUe time or less, two best falls gut of three. Staff Sergt. Chris Belkas, the curlcy haired wrestling Instructor at the Blytlievtlle Army Air Field and . a tremendously big favorite with the local fans, takes on Roy (Egghead) Allen, exponent of tlie kangaroo kick, In a rc- ' turn ' mntch that Is expected to make the welkin ring with action, thrills and spills galore. Giants Open C.irrl Opening the show will bis a pair ot larger behemoths who also are slated to lock horns in an effort to EeUIc a previous dispute, giving the cash customers something extra-special for their small fare. The principals In this Utanllc struggle are "Wild Bill" Canny, No. 1 mat ii.caiiie In these parts, and Jarring Jack Moody, the hcadlock artist and former Southwestern of Mem- .phls football star. . Belkas has a special Incentive for this; .mulch with Allen. It was" the kicking star who snapped his win nfng streak that lind reached. 10 wins In a row, nnd handed htm his first- defeat in n th'ree-fall match since being transferred here more than' a'year ago. It wns n great match, one that has remained fresh in the minds ot the packed house which was on hand and thrilled throughout. 'Allen, on tho olhorhand, also has a strong working point. He Is Just as -anxious to repeal the bitter dose :'over the local soldier and prove the first was no fluke. Roy. elusive ns an eel and with legs of rubber-like. TNT, is always a threat whether on the mat or standing. He throws out both feet with the speed of an niter lashing out Its poisonous tongue nnd It packs plenty of power. H wns that weapon that paved the victory way over Belkas and likely will be his chief threat tonight. Different Type Action The Camiy'-Moody mntch should he just as exciting, tlioiiKh of n far''.different type. Blsger mx rougher,, these Blunts probably wll stnnc n knock-tiown-rirasoiil battle that 'would <lo Justice to any bar room. As in the Belkas-Allci match, there is also the revenue motive in Ihls one. Canny is the aggressor. He hasn't forgotten hli last encounter with Moodv \vhci the "hit! Ixiy soxtcezed his head so hard and lone that lie was rcndcrci hors de combat for the evening. -.":• Cannv easily can be. termed as the..rins's Dr. Jpkl and Mr. H?>'le- Outside the squared circle he Is oiie ' of the mildest mannered persons imaginable, a soft spoken, easy g°- . who is an avid hunter and disciple of the nid and reel, But once li c climbs into file ring he Is a new person. He becomes transformed, Into ,a snarling, rough, Powerhouse who takes special delight In crushing and hurting-. That, is trie thins that makes him so popular with (tie fan-.'. He makes no' bones about his desire to win and jroi-5 about his business 1mm- nmr and long and with a vim. Moody very probably wants to redeem his pour Khowlnt- against the 340-pound Chief Saunookc last week and intends to use this match as a springboard to pel back Into the good graces ot the customers here. Jack has a wide followlne arid always gives a t-ood account ot himself, especially when lie brings his vaunted headlc-ek into plav. Starling time is 8:30, as usual. .•".
