FACE SIX jes.s Willard, Former Boxing Champion, to Appear Here Monday .less Williard, former heavyweight boxing champion of Ihe world, who appeared in the role o( referee at. u Y.-restlfng show here last fail, will make his second appearance in Blytheville Monday night as Hie lltlrd man In the ring during two mnUI cs sponsored by the- American lx> gion. Williarcl's appearance here las full was marked by the bigges house of (he season and promoter expect another packed hall wlici Williard again steps into the ring Wllllard will not be the only attraction as Promolcr Leon Pedrcttj has announced that Roy Welch am: Urn Chancy who met In a "natural" tills wock, will return in Ihe feature match Monday night with no time limit set on the atfatr and few rules to bother them. Welch was the victor In lust Monday's match when chancy fulled to velum lo Ihe ring within the count of '20 after Ix-lng tossed out by his opponent. Clianey appeared entirely able to gel back in at the time he was counted out and protested Hint lie hnd failed to hear the "20" count beeauso of tlic noise rlngsld- crs were malting. His protest availed nothing, however, nnd Welch was awauled the match, two out of three falls. What'll U'lllianl Do? Many fans are wandering- Just how far Williard win let Welch and Clianey go with their rough stuff. Chancy always likes to swap blows instead of testing his grips and Is more at home the rougher the going. Welch can play the game the sauie way and last Monday the pair of them managed lo get Ped- rctly, who doubles at match-making and promoting, In the middle several times. Wllllard undoubtedly has the strength to make either Clianey or Welch do ns he likes. Same of the more enthusiastic of mat /nils are hoping Wllllard will find occasion for using his fists-at one of the matmcn but Willinrd's record for using his fists In the rcf- erce.'s Job is not as "good" as Jack Deinpsey's so they will probably be disappointed: He can lilt thuni oil .less YVIlllaril the floor with case when lie gr Iliein, though, In a preliminary match a new face -will be exhibited before Idea fans wli«i All Htisseti, altegeit Turk meets Eddie Bilker, while a number of different nationalities have been represented on local cards, at least according to promoters' billing, this will be the first appearance of a Turkish matman hero during the current revival of wrestling.
