While many nil • Arknnsas hunter this week Is shooting wild turkey with bow and arrow, attention is focused on the man who has popularized archery both us » sport and ns n eninc-huutlng skill. He is Ben Pearson of Pino Bluff. Pearson's Jefferson County, Ark , plants-made up of six buildings covering 84,000 square feet of llonr space and employing 000 persons- Is the world's largest archery equipment factory.

TPUTtas Is fast and skillfull, and is tough as rawhide. His speed and ability teamed with Welch's long experience and power should be a good match for the Roberts-Byrd combination. Roberts and Byrd have been before and work nicely uriit. At any rate, they made short work of Jack Welch and Joe Wolfe in a match some few weeks ago. They are both villains and do not hestitate to clip the referee if he happens to be In reach. Roberts slowi his opponents down by get- cral years previously. For the [irst few months, he had little money and oven fewer backers. People had no interest In archery.

A technical sergeant, he was medically discharged from the Marine Corps March 20, 1945. His family does not want him to go on with wrestling, he said.
