Their opponents will be two. hardy citizens, Buck Lawson nnd Joe Welch nnd from all Indications.' il will lie strictly a fight to the finish. Canny and Roberts are well suited as partner's. They perform along similar lines anil If there is any disagreement, il probably Will concern only the degree of trickery to which they resort lo flatten their opponents. In other words, they're tlie sort of wrestlers the fans turn out to sec, If only to have the fun of booing. Lawson and Welch arc well equipped to take care of themselves, however, and the two mat mcanles in the other corner will not have easy sailing. In fact, many local Hint enthusiasts are of the opinion they will take the count, but that remains to be seen. The boys will warm up for the feature attraction by staging two individual matches earlier on the program.

But Aviation Cadet Charlie Hind and Jim Ficwcger of Lawrence College will give him some opposition. Cliff Bourland o( Southern Cali- Morcom—New Hampshire's barefoot hoy—might beat him.

To Study Pro Grid Problems Official Estimates More Than 5,500,000 Fish Trapped In Bar Pits L1TTLK 1JOC1C, June 19,—Arkansas' Game and Fish Commission has launched one of Its largest fish rescue drives In history, Tom EJ. Mull, assistant .secretary of the commission, said Fr.idny, revealing Ihal Ihe flood waters have trapped more Ihan 6,503,000 fish in : ihc state. I "We anticipate the heaviest fish rescue work in the .history of the commission," he said. "Work has- alnuidy bri;un on the uptxr reaches of the Arkansas, and al rtusscllville we have about completed our work The work will be carried oul 01: Ihe White, St. Francis and al slreams and lakes in Ihc Delia."

"Springtime is spawning time for the fish and the fish do not follow I tic wnler buck when the flood recedes As a result Ihe fish and millions of fingcrlhigs arc lefl in Ihe bar pits. Game wardens and rescue sunads arc searching Ihc flooded areas for the bar pit.s."

"He has a cork- ,ng curve, a change of pace, remarkable control, a heart bigger than the loving cups that are his cars. The tougher the spot, tlie better he worked, physically and menially, lie was a Rne fielder and had the mast deceptive move to first base Ihc game ever knew." With Los Angeles In 1901, Altrock deliberately walked seven batters nnd then picked them off first base. "It was the only way I could get those sluggers out," he beams, 'flic baseball world wns surprised when Jones opened tlie World Series of '06 with Altrock, his spot pitcher.
