The "Tiger" returns after many montlis of campaigning 'In the East snd Southeast to feature tlic main eyent fag mutch and participate In prie of the t\\o preliminary "single f?ll matches Long has been matched with another favorite, "Hard Head" Parrelli, the head bopping expert, as pile of the tag tennis and will cope *jih "Buck" Lawson and "Blacksmith" Pedigo. •This quattct of giants will grap- p)« over the 90-mlnuU: time limit; t^p best falls out of three' deciding the .winning team. f^s a buildup for Ihc feature Long ^Ul face Lawson, former Naval •commando Instructor, while the Texas liead buster, Furrclll, and Pedigo go at It hammer and long in .the preliminaries. Each will have a'30 minute time limit. . •'• (Combination Card Prospective ' A fine, interwoven combination of science and the modern :style of wrestling me Hie piobable products ot this caid, which should be exactly what the "doctor ordered" for the local fans who prefer their ring action In Ihc raw, but do not object to an occasional scientific Tile Long-Larson go Is due to explode with an extra loud report, if the boys live up lo Iheir past.per- formances'. •. Neither is a sissy-type; quite the contrary, in fact. They arc rough! and double-tough, though not exactly In the mcanie category, such as Red Roberts and Bill Can- riy. But they don't pull any punches; have plenty of ring lilcks and holds. .Since last appearing here' Long Jjas added considerable weight. According to the local matchmaker* lie has blossomed into a' full-fledged heavyweight, some five pounds under the 200-mnik He isalsO'saldto be an extta-rough customer with his extra poundage When he was last hcie the "Tiger" was n mere light-Heavyweight', who : went In for speed and skill to coix; with the larger bo\s Now lie is big" enough 1 to rough it with lliem without'(he former fear of being beaten down by the weight difference. Laivson Is Skilled The "Tigei" Is expected: to have p.tgnty of competition in Lawson. In the many n'mtches here, in -recent jnpnths Buck lias demonstrated rid'c'- quate skill, backed by his 215 pounds Though lie prefers the scientific style of grappling, Lawson has been forced lo revert to the rock and sock to meet the attacK pf the last few foes. And ho has dpne all right on the winning side Of the ledger. .Pedigo';-'n'nd Parrelli also, should haye an interesting "argument" that may develop Into a riot. They are about the same sl?e, approximately the same age, and many years of rjng experience under their bells. ' It likely nill be a scientific duel, t.,uilar to the one staged by Wlsbar and Pedigo a couple Of 'weeks ago and that proved unusually interesting and popular. '•'.'.' 'Both have "pets" among their v i'ast, expansive list of scientific; Holds.: Pedigo, who once held the Junior Middleweight Championship of the world and retired;undefeated because of inability to make Ihe wcjght, featuies the "crucifta," n deadly, dangerous weapon. He has u«d it only once in recent months, but it helped defeat Stocky Kncil- sen. ' Parrelli, one of the few remaining; barefoot wrestlers, uses his hard head to batter foes and soitcn them for the kill. He and Irish Malone •won last week. Starling time Is B:}5. Buffalo milk Is the source of the canned cheese for India's righting men. • Hard-Headed Mat Meanie 11 No, kiddles, this Isn't the bogey man- from Mara.
