rvr EIGHT BLYTHEVlLbB (ARK.), COURIER NEWS Welch, Kneilsen On Card Tonight ^; Mat Team To Oppose , ^.< Mafone And Estes 1 At Legion Arena < With the ring reinforced and ring posts< made more secure, cv- e"r> thing'Is to readiness for the nll- siar tag match tonight at the American Legion arena on North Second Street which Promoter Mike Meroney 1ms arranged for his weekly wrestling show, starting ati 8:30 o'clock. iMlke willbc on lm:id as referee^ to personally se that e\eo thing goes off all okay, and from all in- liclations he • Is .' expected to have his hands plenty full lo keep things fri order among tile four giniUs viblch, he !s bringing in for this eiftra-super ; chiller-dlller. Principal reasons for: this stnte- nient'are a couple of loughles named Joe Estes and "Stocky" Knell- sejnV.They are just half of the cast for thls-^expected dynnmltc-pack- ed program, the others being the feudJsts; Roy Welch and Eddie Malone, but likely are enough to cause many a' headache—and not just figuratively — for the official, and much .excitement for the customers. * Neither Likes Hcrefcts " v poth are the types of wrestlers who do not include referees among the!r-:cho!cest friends and companions. In short, they Just don't like referees.and would rather not be annoyed .by them constantly break- in? in on what they arc doing. Since they' usually stretch the rules ns If (Key were rubber. It Is quite prob- aijle that Mike will be breaking In on them before the evening Is oven That-means trouble; the kind of' trouble, that the local enthusiasts relish. Both individual matches that pie cede the feature tag match ma\ steal the show Special Interest centers',on the battle between Welsh and Malone.,These 215-pound giimls have a crcm to pick, s feud thai began some time ago and perpetuated two veeks ago In ihe voi> same rlm> Welch defeated Mnlone la that, three-fall match that packed,, every "-.conceivable kind of action .and excitement Into Ihc 13 minutes, of rough going Malone v&nts raenge and Is out to get It Coin; Should Rough ; i\Vhereas the bigger boys arc due id hove a lliely session the bittlc "between' Kriellsen and Estcs Is expected,to be none the less exciting and furious.- Both giants, who weigh' in at a mere 195-ppmids apiece are rough, tough customers and highly, skilled. Knellsen ii a big. favorite here because of his willingness to mix It, either by fist or ring holds And he is unusually adept at both ""Estes, stho retuins aflcr an absence of several months ib no powder-puff performer, either. Quite the contrary, exact. He, tod, U a rock and sock artist v,ho prefeis the'pound aiid punch method to the grunt and groan His open style of attack makes him dangerous at all times and piovides action; galore for the fans, esceplallj .when,-h'e', sometimes misses and plunges head first out of the ring. r ;Iti'.should :be something to look at when all four get together In the^feature In all probability thej will spend as much .time In the *rin| at-* the same time as in pair, ttjegulallons provide That usually .means sdded entertainmeny Lepanto Swamps JJ Shawnee Indians By 47-6 Score '!' JOINER, Sept. 25—It's R long lane that has no turning, nnd the ehawnee Indians reached the end of the road here Friday afternoon as they fell before Ihe Lepanto Panthers, 47-C, In a Northeast Arkansas Six-Man Conference foot- bnll contest. The defeat, worst In local grid history, snapped a home winning streak that began eight years ago. The defending champions did no), lave a chance against the hard charging Panthers led by Raymond Lamb. The lall cnn scored the firsj touchdown on a 00-yard run after 'filching a snort pass, and-'counted hree other times before, jj.lic roiiV vas over. Allen 'Smith, ' Jerome Hill and Steve Elzy tallied the others for tlie Faultier j. Tigers Keep Up Hot Pace In American By United 1'rcss The Detroit Tigers, operating be^ liind the steady hurling of Lefty Hal Vcwliouser, broke loose with 15 hits 0 trounce the Boston Red Sox fl to 1 and keep a firm hold on the American League lead. The Bengals . maintained their lead of one full game over Ihe pacesetting St. Louis Browns nnd Ihclr bigger lead of four and one half games over the Yankees of Ncv/ York. St. Louis held Its record with a 3 to'2 victory over llic Philadelphia Athletics. Jack Kramer and Jess Flores tangled In n pitchers battle for eight, innings, but Flores weakened lu the ninth and the Browns moved In lo take the game. Cleveland virtually ousted.'the New York Yankees from the running 'with a 4 to I victory over Hank Borowy. At the bottom of the,league the sixth place Chicago While Sox pushed the Washington Nats deeper with n double win over the Senators 9 to 3 and 2 to 0. In the National League every' team played a double bill..The Giants and the Pirates split Ihc'lr pro-! gram when Ihe New Yorkers took the opener 5 to 4, but dropped ihe second game, 3 to '2. At Brooklyn the Dodgers troiinccd Ihe Chicago Cubs 10 to 3 In the first game but dropped \ the next game to tlic Bmlns, •! to 3 .And at Boston the Braves gave up both ends of a doublchcndcr to the Cincinnati Reds 2 to 1 nnd 1 to 0. Meanwhile the St. Louis Cards stretched their victory siring by Iwo more wllh a twin win over Philadelphia 4 to 3 and-1 to 0. • . Four Title Contenders Loom In Arkansas Prep Conference Moving Into Hid second week of Its 1944 campaign, the Arkansas High School Football Conference looms strictly as n four-team race between El Dorado, Little Rock, Pine Blulf and Hot Springs and this week's schedule' finds nothing lo hinder their progress. Conch Guy B. Hayes' El Dorado Wildcats leaped out in front of the par.ido with n convincing 20-0 defeat of the highly touted Fort Smith Grizzlies, a feat that caused no little eyebrow raising over the state, On the basis of advance "dope" both teams appeared even. Lo(\:by Big John Hoffman, who is playing on borrowed lime since he already has reached-draft age and expects n call from his draft botircl almost any time, the Little Rock Tigers got of! to n llyliig start under their new coach, Raymond "Rabbit' Burnett by walloping the Fordyce Redbugs as expected, 40-0. Hoffman scored 28 of the Bengal points. • f : Xcbras Show Power For ii team that supposedly did not have anything, the Pine Bluff Zebras (lid nil right. The defending champions licked McGchec, '15-0. as All-Slater Shorty Turchl returned lo form. Turclii set Ihc winning apce with i\ great oflenslvc performance, Indicating lie has fully recovered from the Injury that 1mm- pcrGd him last ycnr. Hot Springs experienced little difficulty subduing the Little Hock Catholic High, 37-C, which went just about to form but not too convincing. They played under wraps most of the time. Here at Haley Field the Blythc Chicks broke uway lo n miserable start as they dropped a 10-0 verdict lo the alert Caruthcrsvllle. (Mo.) Tigers before one of Hie largest opening game crowds In recent years. Sadly lacking In football fundamentals, Ihc tribe made only one futile threat then faded away and never came buck, to the bitlcr disappointment of the loyal fans who hud hopes for n winning season following the 1343 debacle. Chicks Can Redeem They have n chance to redeem Ihcmselvcs Ihls week against the powerful Parkin Tigers, rimnmun In the Northeast Arkansas Conference, and reputedly one of the better teams In the slale, not excluding the Big 18. Haley Field will be the bailie ground. The lough Tigers bared llielr fangs as they trounced Ihe Forrest City Mustangs, 19-0, Friday night and served notice that teams on their schedule must pack plenty of defense lo cope with them. It should be anything hut a wnrmup for Ihe Irlbe. Heading Ihc conference card this week from the Northeast Arkansas (standpoint Is the Liltlc Rock-Jones- Ixiro struggle nt the Cralghead County metropolis, Coach Pete Craig's charges look their worst lacing last week, a 45-0 drubbing from the Clarksdale (Miss.) Wildcats and do not appear to have enough to even test the Tigers, Expect No Trouble El Dorado also should move along without trouble from Hope. The same holds true for Hot Springs which entertains Benlon. Ditlo Pine Bluff over Fordyce. Elsewhere over the .state where conference members arc Involved, Mansfield goes lo Rnssellville, a 10-C winner over Greenwood; Texnrknnri takes on North Little Rock In the Wildcat lair; Helena ,aral Forrest Clly renew their keen rivalry; as do Camdcn and Magnolia at Camden, and qlarksvllle travels to Forl Smith.

The fellows were talking politics nt Squire Mason's store tho other day when Bert Childora made n remark that hit the nail squarely on the hond. Bert eaid: "I don't core 1C it's n national or n local election nnd I don't care how anybody votca. AH I care is that you do vote and don't stay home nnd let tho other fellow do it for you." We all agreed on that. Then up spoke Squire. "The right to vole, and vote secretly is the real basis of democracy—the very thing we'ro fighlin' for. A man or woman that don't think enough of his country to go to tho noils and express his opinion is aidin' and nbottin'thoscwhowouldattempt to destroy our government." /. Dcrt and the Squire are right. From where 1 sit, every Imo American should go to ihe polls Elt'dioi?
