TUESDAY, JUNE G, 19-M Fans Get Thrill As Welch, Allen Win Tag Match *' Malone and Srabo Able To Win One Fall From Local Fans Favorites Joe Welch and Roy Allen racked up their second successive lag victory by defeating Irish Eddie Malone. and Joe Szabo In t!i e feature event of Promoter Mike Meroney's 'weekly wrestling program last night al the American Legion nronn. Working In complete unislon, much on the same order as lust week when they blasted Dill Canny nnrt Slri Hays, (lie winner.? took tile first an<( third falls of the last and furious battle that at times bordered on extreme brutality. Malonc, substituting for Floyd Byrd, who was delayed because o( an automobile accident, enrontc from'Birmingham, Ala., saved the losing team from a complete rout during the evening's rough entertainment. Irish defeated Allen in the preliminary and then iilmost single haiidcdly beat Welch and Allen for liie second fall that evened the match, at one apiece. Welch Sets race Once again Welch was the fair hniretl boy and (he spark plug of the brilliant victory. It \vjis he who tricked the, wily Malone into starting another overhead arm chancery, then turned it into a reverse back breaker that actually changed the (ide of battle in the third and decisive fall. Malone ha c | used that effective hold to force both Welch and his partner to surrender during the second fall. And lie did such dam- 'gtf>se with it that when he again ••"aught Hie tall Welch in the viselike (rap the fans groaned for their favorite. But this time, Joe was ready and had plans of bis own. He simply brought his entire weight on Malone, forcing his back into an arc, then slipped his right arm •under Malone's chin as Eddie released his hold to break the expected fall and hauled him over his back into a dangerous reverse back breaker. Malone quickly gave up. Eliminating Szabo in the finale was comparatively simple and made to order (or the agile Allen. Three successive kangaroo kicks, the last one smack in the puss, turnc<i the trick in just a couple of minutes. S'/.afoo Attacks Kefcrcc Enraged throughout because Referee Meroney was constantly forced to pull him off Welch and Allen via the hair of his head, Szabo staged a mild fiasco after the battle was over but got no where with the capable official who can still hold his own in the ring. Mike wisely held htm off at arms length and kept on the go. Finally, the Hungarian -cooled oil and left the ring. . '- • ' Welch and Allen toiled 20 mln- .utes before gaining the first fall. And they waged their successful campaign mainly because they centered their attack first on Szabo and then on Malone, then concen- § fling on the Hungarian until ey eliminated him. Welch put on 'the finishing touches with a powerhouse right cross, followed by a body pin in 16 minutes. They used- a different technique on the big, powerful Malonc. Joe started a series of flips, turned the job over to Allen who kept the pace up with four more. Back came Welch with more flips, and Allen put the clincher on thc spinning Irishman with a body pin, all of which consumed four more oiin- titcs. Losers Sfeaf Sluff Aialone and Szabo stole some of their foes' thunder at the start of the second fall by singling out Welch and giving him the "works". They hammered and cuffed and choked the tanned Oklahoman without giving him a chance to Ing his teammate, but just when it appeared as if the end was in sight, Jo c escaped thc: pair and gained relief. Bui not for long. Allen got into trouble with Szabo, who 'effectively employed the choke mcth- JBLYTHEV1LLE (AltK,); COURIER NI3W3 Itte DOPE BUCKET BI 1. P. FKIEND SO GREKN IS FIELD Thanks to the Blylhcviile Junior Chamber of Commerce, our High School Chlckasnws will have a beautiful green sod to romp on this Pall. Under the capable scrutiny of Sylvester (Pop) Mosley, Haley Field is getting its face lifted In preparation for the football campaign ere the falling brown leaves |n September ... The field has been broken up, then rolled nnd now is being planted In grass. "You won't know the place in n month or so," Pop beamed with a twinkle in liis eye. . . "This grass will be out and not a sign that It has been planted in rows . . . The only' regret Is thai we can't keep It that way. . . When the boys report September 1 they will start right to work and will have worn off some spots even within a few days." And I got what the ol' timer was wishing. . . It has been his hope that someday, somehow the school district would make arrangements for a practice field, leaving Haley Field looking spick ( and span for Ihe games. . . That policy is innln- lalncd f by many'of the other high schools the state and country find has proved quite successful and colorful . . . Surely, Ihere is a spot of ground nearby lhal can be secured, say, adjoining Spain bottom. ... It wouldn't lake much work to get it In shape and should be secured for school purposes at a reasonable price. VOKl'OKAL WANTS ADDKESSES My o)' buddy, Corp. Udell Newsom, is having n "hot time" out in Mo- javc Desert, where he is stationed. ... He says the temperature gels to 130 degrees in thc shade. . . Only trouble, there's no shade In the desert ... He tosses a few bouquets into the "Bucket", then breaks down and lets me in on his real object fo rwrlting . . . Stationed just 75 miles from Hollywood, where he is "Electrical Specialist" on B-24's, Udell,and his wife get Into town quite often and .want to look up their old friends. Elmer Lindscy and Heyward (Charlie) Partlow, who are in training at San Diego. . . Only the evening 'before Die letter was written, which was May 25, Corp. Newsom told of talking with Cass Daley and Rochelle Hudson, movie stars, and seeing Ann Rutherford and Madam Queen (of the Amos and Andy radio program). "We have quite a number of Mississippi County boys here at this base. . . In fact, there are so many Arkansas boys here we are planning on starting an 'Ark-gcttogcther- Club' once a week," he pens. . . His pd for weakening, .and tagged Welch.-,As i Joe entered .the riny Malone was Waiting, his atlack all mapped out, apparently. Grabbing Welch's left arm he spun under and raised himself placing his shoulder just back of Joe's elbow. He began putting the pressure on the reversed arm suspended over the shoulder, then flopped Joe with a vicious flying mare. An arm strangle turned Into a ringer process forced Welch lo surrender. Malone Beats Allen Allen was the next vlctlm'and via the ssmo method and yielded in four minutes more after nearly escaping. , In the first preliminary Allen fell victim to Malone In 15 minutes, with a stepover toe hold. Spotting his opponent about 25 pounds or more, Roy did all right until he began roughing Irish. It was his first big mistake. For Eddie poured on Ihe coal and hammered his lighter foe into submission. Welch nnd Szabo waged a wild, hair-pulling war in their prelim. Szabo'.s long locks were tailormade by yanking and Welch made thc most of It. He punished the Hungarian unmercifully as he used the long hair as a flip springboard. Welch was the winner aft e r 17 minutes of extra-rough milling, using a resounding body kick followed by a body pin. address is: Corp. Udell Newsom, •121st Dnse Unit, Sqdn, !•', AAP, M«roc, Calif.
