'','Tr'ue" to advanced notices the eriow proved to be a lulu for action, thrills and spills, with plenty of all. The lighter faster toys, encouraged by, an enthusiastic crowd that Jammed ever}' available space Including standing room, put on t great, scientific classic that de lighted the customers, as evidencer by the .wild and unrestrainer rounds of applause through th match 'and at the conclusion. Th heavyweights came through with i slugging bee that set off the show Enjoying a weight advantage of some 10 pounds, something unusual for him the dapper champion carried the fight to Baarn, who was' making his debut before local laridom, and dominated the ineach most' of the way. But he had to work hard, bear down all the way to defeat the eel-like Baarn, who utilized his tremendous speed and dazzling footwork to a decided ad- \antage but didn't have quite enough to cope with his foe. Champ Takes First Truesdale won the first fall in The time was 10 minuets. Stage Bitter Battle Starting slowly with indications a possible duplicate of the first iever duel, the Welcli-Malone af- air soon blossomed out Into the lam-bam, rip-and-tear, knock own and drag nut battle that was xpectcd when (lie two feuding I ants got together. And what a ilfty scrap It was while It Instodi 'hey did just about everything to ach other that one possibly could vithoul commitling mayhem. And he fans literally ate it up. Hoy came up cff the floor outride the ring, where he had been :lcked and driven, to take the first fall. A volley of lefts and rights nostly rights, turned the trick will i body pin doing the official job n 5 minucls. The big boys really got rougl in the second. Both took trips ou of the confines as tlie battle raged Malone pulled even in the matcl with a series of body slams fol lowed by a body pin in 25 minuets Enraged by some" brutal treatmen by Welch, Malone went on a chok ing spree shortly after the thin fall got under way. He not onl wouldn't hoed Referee Belkas' com mand to quit but. turned on th official wlien pulled off. Clnls im mediately disqualified him as rv>o as he could brush the cobwebs fron brain. It had gone six minute iat mnkc me proud that. T am acher and coach. Say, this boy ick weighs 1C5 pounds and "little, all" ilugli scutes n mere 17G. /oiildn'l I like to have those boys ow.

Tills .rip puts me over the 100,000-inllc mark for travel since I have bcei n the Army, Jan. 0, 1941. Am 30,000 miles were by P'" 1 ' 0 . !ltl(1 noslly over water. Of course, tlili traveling hasn't been pleasure trips but I have managed to stop over a iome of the most Interesting points This time I Loiuoml, I" typical fashion. Alternating with headlocks and crushing head scissors he softened Mickey ii"rt left him an easy prey for his vaunted flips, followed by the usual body pin In onlj five minutes. But the second was far from replica and rather surprising to the fans who more-or' less expected the champion toiaeain make shprl work "Tutfy 1 -' started It just like th? fust, only to hnve It bncklire He slammed Mickey and wns me by both his feet as he tossed caution to the winds! The resounding shock nearly knocked the cliami out and kept him groggy for sev eral minutes. Quick as a flasl Baarn took Rdvnntngc of the break anS 4 opened up' with a fast attack Eventually it paid off. He cnugh the-champion with another kick got him with a pile driver, pre ceded by two slams, nnd event the match at a fall apiece. It took 15 minuets. " Then the speed merchants really went to town as they'squared off for the deciding issue. Mickey tarely missed victory with a pile driver then 'drew Referee Belkas a tough spot to get out minus DOPE BUCKET Ay J. P. FKIEND ACE HOMK AGAIN Our very good friend and buddy, Capt. James Ace Puckelt, is home again from another trip across the Atlantic—he's a convoy officer — and gives out. with another interesting letter which follows: ' Sept. 3, 1944. Ft. Gco. Meade, Md, Dear J. P.: damage ,The finish rarte' In on some of the most-beautiful and well executed rflying blocks ever staged here. Everyone was perfect and Baarn didn't have a chance to survive. Well, hello again, you'would-be reporter! (•That definitely U the very last straw, and I do mean last). Here I am back .again to my surpr!s e there was a very Interesting letter ' from you awaiting me. Thanks, ol' man, for the tip on Hugh Harbert. We immediately got together and yon can make three guesses as to what we talked about. Yep, that's right, Dlylhevlllc. the Chicks, nnd the gang back home. By golly, you know, J. P., every time 1 run into one of "my boys" I ame more than ever determined to continue coaching when this war Is over. The pny for every ounce of energy sl>cnt, or any heartaches I ever had have come to me a thousand fold by the feeling the, comes at meeting one of these boys feeling Is hard to explain, bu It is one of those things that monej can't buy. •' By the way, I saw Hick Salcebi here in Washington. He's a slat sergeant at Ft. Belvoir, Va., and in cidently he Is the proud papa of 1-pound girl torn at Walter Reei Hospital. It was my happy priv Hedge to see the off-spring. J. P Bonnie"Scotland."The anticipation before getting there actually thrilled me until I had giose pimples, Naturally, I got a thrill from the actual scenes but the thought before and since have really raised my enthusiasm. I am sol don my own America and especially my native Arknss, but Scotlnd is the most beautiful country for scenery I ever saw In my Hf.' No wonder Scott and Burns could write such beautiful lines. Darned If 1 don't believe ou, J. P., could write a tew tcrcsting lines with those scenes as a back ground. (I'm willing to try Chum). DISCOVERS HIS ANCESTRY Then, too, I suppose another reason for my feeling so toward Scotland is that I found some trace of r.iy ancestors. Yes, J. P., there Is some good hi me. You know there Is, though so far none has ever come out. At least, I can prove It now even if it Is necessary. Also, I managed to gel (be family clan some caps and enough Scottlshplakl to make my two daughters a skirt each, as well as the coat of arms of the Farguhar clnn (my mother's side). Yes, Scotland Is a very besui- ful place. But I am like most 11 the fellows I have seen. I want > come back home and settle down. ;ven though Scotland is very eauliful there arc a jiHion and one ilngs we have nnd enjoy its Amc- cans that those people don't know.

Asked whether they would favor extension of the regular playing season to determine the title winner, 10 members snid they favored one- week extension and five said they favored a two-week extension, All conference members voted in the poll in favor of a full-time athletic commissioner for the conference to serve in a capacity similar to that Judge Lnndis holds In baseball, They also were unanimous in saying Hint no members of the AAA should be permitted to vote in connection with a sport In which lie :lld not participate.
