,' £AGE Sli Welch And AlSen Combine Defeat Hays And Canney Welch-Hays Go A Clever Display Of Ring Science •Joe Welch • successfully passed rinjor test No." 2 in his comcbnck campaign as lie led his tag 'cam (o victory-last nlclit al.tlie American Legion arena. Weaving a ruddy coat of lau obtained during his recent convalescence, Joe pinned the rugged Dill Canny in the finale ol the second fail to give him and his male, Roy Allen, » straight fall victory over Canny nud Slcl Hays in the main event of Promoter Mike Mcroucy's weekly wrestling show, i Young Welch proved beyond ti shadow of doubt that he has fully recovered from Ihe serious Injury suffered at the hands of Red Roberts several weeks ago by also downing ilie clever Hays in a spectacular preliminary match that went 18 iiiimiifs. > i Canny Prevents Whitewash j Canny saved his team from a complete rout by tossing Allen twice during (he exciting an<l hard fought program. He defeated Hoy' In- the opening match of tlic pro-' gram, then pinned him during the battle for the second fall. Tile packed house came close to witnessing an unusual wrestling phenomena, that of one man tossing two in succession. With his partner, Hays, eliminated after n Vmitnl arm assault, Canny got busy mid threw a scare into the rival cnmp. Matching blow for blow before the combined and regular at. tack from Welch mid Allen, "Wild Bill" succeeded in hammering out Allen, but went ,the way of the flesh as Joe caught him with well directed kangaroo kicks and fell on him with n double jackknlfe, ; Welch and Allen won mainly bc- / cause they'cleverly concentrated their attention on one wrestler at a time—n Hick employed so successfully by the Welch brothers. Welch discovered during (lie preliminary thai Hays did not relish hanimcrlocks. So ho and ills tenm- mntc directed their attack on the Canadian's left arm, already ive.ik- ened by two bleaks early In his i-Ing career. They eliminated him in 15 minutes, then assmiHed Mr. I Canny with a combined hammer- 1 ami-tons; battciing that included' haymakers, flips and kangaroo kicks lo.;complete the fall. Welch receiver! credit for the fall over Hays, while Allen had the honor of pinning Canny. The combined time WBS 18 minutes. After the rest period Welch and Allen went right back to work on Hays and forced him to surrender in only one minute. But Canny proved the usual, lough cu|- tomer to handle. Mustering nil the rough stuff and power' at' his command, Bill slaughtered Allen with- Pepper IsBacllWIth The Cards By United Prcsh The old Wild Horse of the Osngc —Pepper Martin—is ready to turn another world scries upside down. Pepper is back with the St, Louis Cardinals now. He's older and slower ihnn he was when lie ran wild oil the bases In 'the 1931 scries against Ihc Philadelphia Athletics. But tlic same fire Is in Pepper's 40- year-old eyes. Though he's slowed up, Pepper Martin says he's still the fastest runner on the Cardinal club. ;i Martin spent 1942 and 19-13 managing Cardinal farm clubs. But when the manpower shortage tightened up, Pepper .returned lo the fold. When Stan Mtislal and Danny Litwliller leave the Curds for the Navy, Pepper probably will take over n regular outfield jot). Pepper still has that cheerful confidence of the old St, Louis Gas-House Gang. He's Mire that lis club has got, what it lakes to clinch another pennant. The .scrappy outfielder remembers tiic Gas-House Gang — the team with the Dean brothers — Bill Dclnncey—Joe Medivlck — and Pepper's hlll-bllly hand, the Oklahoma Mud-cats. But Pepper Is just as enthusiastic when he talks about the new Cardinal gang. He s:iys: "They like to come up with magic to win ball games — they don't holler like the old gang did—but they've got spirit and Billy Soulhworth's ii great lender." Pepper's one complaint is that hj feels a little llrcd and tightened up after a ball game. The 40-yenr- old youngster swears that's because he Isn't playing regularly, He says: "I've kept In good condition and If I get In the lineup I'll be as good as ever." out giving him much cnancc lo gel aid from hi? corner. Four .successive right crosses folded him up right for the double Jackknllc. Referee Mcroiicy could have counted 1 n dozen ns /ar ns "Egghead" was concerned. He was taking a forced nap. For it lime it looked ns If Canny would Rive Welch a dose of the same bitter medicine. But Joe spoiled the chance by kicking him out, then fell on him for the deciding fall to end the match. Camiv cleverly evaded tile kicking prowess of Allen lo gain Hie decision in the first preliminary, a rough, tough slugging bee from start to finish. He came up with a deadly anatomical twist- alter being flipped three limes In a row. Allen made no effort to escape. It likely would have done no good. The lime was 15 minutes. In sharp contrast, the Welch- Hays battle was-a scientific display during which not a single blow- was struck. Action was keen and fast as the two clever giants Irlcd lo outfox the oilier. Joe won with a bar arm In 18 minutes after dishing out merciless punishment on Hay's left arm. The fans-npplnud- ed the pair as. they left the ring. BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.)
