4-AOKBH BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.),.COURIER NE\?S the other- incidences SIRANGK Itlil) FK!,1,O\VS War makes strange bed fellows. This conflict lins been an education in itself for the bays who have nibbed elbows with iwople froiii all over the world; brought experiences they doubtless could not hav c arranged with all kinds of money, and many which ".they do not cay.- to remember. But, on ' hand, they havc ; been that likely will linger long jn their fond memories, many whicli have only passing Insignificance but play a large part In their mental welfare, For instance, Corp. Guy U Rod- gcrs twice wrote his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Rcdsers of nn Interesting account of an experience with a small French boy, n youngster who, I presume,-tins come face to face with the erlni realities of i may linve cost lilm id' Roberts And Kneilsen Win At Arena "Rough Red" Roberts and "Stocky" Kneilsen',celebrated the return of the titlan-rialred ace meanie after a brief absence by making a clean sweep of Promoter Mike Meroncj's wrestling program with George IThe Biter) .Dennett'and Joe Estes last night at the American Legion arena. Roberts, downed the smaller Estes, substituting at the last moment for Roy Allen who was unable to up- pear, in Ihe first piclimintuy Kneilsen followed the victory suit of Ills partner by .flattening Bennett in their,ad-minute encounter, then teamed with Big Red to take the boys into_ x camp via straight falls in the tag match feature. . Not A Dud, Despite,the overwhelming .superiority of : Roberts and Kneilsen, tin: match was far from a dud. Quite the contrary, it .was n fun session from start to finish, n bruising, battering affair with a comical vein running 'throughout 'that kept a packed'house in stitches and sent. them away In good humor. j war "'"' Bennett, one of the most durable, lol ' eci ones -. and rugged wrestlers ever to grace Iu t , hc fl . lsl lcllel '' written from the Legion Ting, started the fire- »»'«*«« m Fiance with the OiSlli works early In the feature when he °"'"'«"ce Company. APO 350. Guy inaugurated a biting campaign to ' ———— offset the tremendous weight dif- rest period, the l»ys really went to ference enjoyed, by the opposing team. Every chance he got he reached down'and took a bite, be it the lower southern exposure of the an- stamy, a thumb, finger, leg, or what have you. Estes joined in ihe siiat- c'gy and for a lime they had Roberts and Kneitsen afraid to take hold for .fear of bringing back a flub or imprints of a set of genuine teeth. But In the end that line o\ attack failed to cope; with the power contained in the big fists of Hod and Stocky and the biters went the way of the flesh. Roberts Treats Fans Roberts in his own inimitable way also provided a major portion of the laughs. Naturally, he centered his attacks on Referee Aferoncy, a choice subject for his tricks and attacks.-This time hs took special pains to work On Mike's bruised nose, and he did a fair country pob. The referee will attest, to that, to say nothing of his bruised If ak. Tim first fall during the tag match wns little shorl.'of a riot as Bennett and Estes .exploded their new mid unheard of biting 'campaign. And it was so effective that Roberts nnd Kneilsen 'had some difficulty per' suading the'other to lake over upoi •tagging.him;:;But they countered .with a power powder and it-proved more deadly than the bit. They con. cenlrated; their efforts on Estes anil eventually, eliminated him first after 20 vir'ulent, humorous infinites Roberts gained the fall with a bruising surfboard and arm stomp. DOPE BUCKET BX Jf. F. FKOND Bennett, as tough as a modern restaurant steak, succumber 10 minutes 1st er .with a reverre body Kneilsen had the honor.' Coming out' from' the I0-miniilo town with everything they had. The main difference was that Robert's and Kneilsen had !oo much; &tcs ind Bennett too llltle. The result: •Ictory for the first pair. Kneilsen had Estes all but thrown vhcn Bennett rushed Into the ring nnd pulled him olf, prolonging the agony. Later, Estcs returned the favor as all milled for several min- itcs Inside the ring. Kneilsen clip- Jed Bennett with a pair of resounding kangaroo kicks, followed by the usual body pin, to defeat Bennett. Then Roberts and Kneilsen started n on Estcs, who hue! been n thorn n the Ilesh nil evening, and put :ilm through the massage mill. They hammered him from pillar to post without attempting to throw him until Referee Meroncy stepped In and stopped the slaughter with Estes definitely on the toboggan and going down hill. The combined lime was 14 minutes. Millies Giillanl Hid Battling a big weight' and si'/.c difference, Estcs made ii gallant fight in the initial match with Roberts which opened the eanl. However, he fell victim to the typical Roberts style — choke and more choke—and was beaten in 12 minutes. Fecidlsts a long time, Bennett and Kneilsen staged a shigfcst for benefit of the overflow, enthusiastic crowd and It was a honey! They left their best manners, and most of their science, in the dressing room and proceeded to punch the other around for the best part of 10 min- mtn-i utes before Kneilsen laid George \ov. y pin. with a couple of kangaroo kicks Both received neat shiners from Ihe bitter battle. "TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3, Penned: "There is a little French kid who visits me in the evenings. He can speak English a little—well, better than I speak French, He talked for quite a while. I gave him my wornout slippers, some oranges and other small things. He thanked me over and over again, shook my hand and as he. walked off kept on thanking me. "He was about nine years old and quite dirty. (Water Is scarce In the towns). I guess I'll be seeing more of him as time goes by." KID COAIJiK HACK And sure chough, It wasn't long before the little fellow was back. Two days later 'Guy wrote: "My Jltlle .French friend pulled « good one last night. He got some wood nnd waterproof papers and built himself n bed In a foxhole close (o my tent. He said he was going to stay with us. Then at sup- pcillme h n borrowed a mess kit and got In line with us for supper. But after supper we got a jeep and had him taken home. He lives about three miles from here. He is reallv n smart little fellow." Corp. Hodgers icvealed'that he Isn't very far from Lieut. Odic Rice, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis I. Rice and one of the first muses to hit tbc French coast after the Invasion on D-day, and plans to see her as soon as conditions will permit. Though some distance back of the lines. Guy told of going up for a look and the sights there were not very pleasant. "Last night I went up the road about 40 miles. Saw quite a few of .hcse towns that had practically Ijeen leveled to the ground. It was a terrible sight nnd I cnn't sec how ,lie Germans escaped death In any of them. If you will notice In the July 3rd Issue of Life ni.ignv.liic you will sec what 1 mean by leveling and destruction of towns. I guess /ou saw similar scenes In the lust war. eh, Dad? Willie J. [lid have n very good look at similar sights during'World War I. He wns in France for over year and quite, probably passed the same place where his son now is carrying on In his stead. ENGLISH TAKE FANCY When Guy was In England he frequently visited In the home of a *Mr. and Mrs. Johnson nt Lincolnshire, after meeting them at Methodist chapel. Though a Baptist, he attended (he chapel as regularly us he could and soon made friends with lh c British. Mrs. Johnson wrote a very. ver> ince letter lo Mr. and Mrs. Rod- scrs in which she highly complimented the Blythevillc boy on his mnmiors, disposition and clean living.
