He had been informed from a rc- llBble source that Canny was "hot" at him and was ciertltcd with the statement that he was "through" with the circuit. Ills hunch was right.

He likes to mix it; prefers It good and rough, and together with "Rough Red" should make Szabo .comes highly recommended .the fans forget that Canny ever was scheduled in Ihe first place. .Lawson teamed with Long on the ; winning side of a screwball match last Monday night, though beaten by the Arab star, Emll Badul, in the preliminary after completely outwrestling the huge Middle East- .erner. Wisbar and Long turned in a peach of a. duel in the second match of the evening. They toiled 25 minutes before Long caught Gus with a siege of flying tackles and Bet the stage for the fall. Despite a decided weight superiority by his foes, Lawson and Long. Wisbar made a creditable . showing. His fine work paved the way for his team to take the first fall. Roberts has just returned from Florida where, as visual, he made life miserable tor foes and referees alike. His return bodes no good luck for Referee Meroney, who will ofticiate'in all events. Roberts takes special delight in picking on Mike. Once he even ripped Mike's panls off, leaving htm standing in a bright colored pair of green trunks, lhat may account for him bringing an extra pair of trousers whenever the rneanle Is scheduled.
