Jack Welch and Joe Wolfe took the preliminaries in that order. Welch eliminated Byrd in 15 minutes with a body pin. Roberts started to work on Wolfe preparing him for the surfboard, a favorite hold of Roberts', but something went amiss and out of the scramble of arms and legs Wolfe emerged with the rolling scissors and pinned Roberts in 10 minutes. Wolfe Injured his left leg while administering flying tackles to Roberts. He was still suffering quite a bit somct: time after the match. The injury was not believed to be serious, probably a badly wrenched knee, but enough to give Wolfe plenty of pain The first fall of the main event seemed cinched in favor of the Wolfe-Welch team as Welch hat Byrd apparently out with a series of Irish whips when suddenly Byrd came off the ropes and landed a haymaker on Welch's which put, him out of the running Wolfe then pinned Byrd but Ro berts made the conic back more ; reality by pinning Wolfe and giving the first fall lo the Roberts. Byrd team. The evening's funniest momcn came in the second fall.

WATER is Nature's Greatest Solvent Wafer is the greatest solvent known, more substances being soluble in it than in any other compound. IT WILL REMOVE, DESTROY, DISSOLVE, OR ELIMINATE ANYTHING MAN IS ABLE TO BUILD! Water is ceaselessly at work everywhere, all of the time, building up and tearing down. It is true that the "constant dripping water wears away the hardest stone." Barring new eruptions, water would eventually level o the earth's entire surface. One of the startling examples of the great cutting and dissolving powers of water is Grand Canyon of Arizona. Here the Colorado River has cut through thousands of feet of marble, granite and other hard rocks, until at some points the river is more than a mile below the ground surface, and the water is still cutting deeper and deeper—visual proof that "Water is Nature's Greatest Solvent."
