Rough, Tumble Affair Looms For Wrestlers The decks will be cleared for action tonight at the Legion Arena as the tag match card brings together potential melee of hot temper, ' Jlyhiff feel nn<l free-swinging fists. When Tommy Ward and Al Szasz pnir off ugalnsi Al Galento and Charley Kecne in the main event n number of things are likely to hnppeii-nll of them on a predominately rough and tumble basis, o A brief resume of tonight's grappling line-up shows that: — Szasz leads In the rough and tumble department, embellishing his mat work with agile leaping kangaroo-kicks and monkey-flips. Ward, his helpmate, i s capable of scientific wrestling but is a rough operator when mad. Ami it i s expected that tonight's fracas will wear Ills temper paper-thin. Kecne, too, can put on a scientific bout but like many veterans of mat battles, is more at home in a catch- as-enlch-cnii match. Galento's talents arc solely rou«h- housc. He is n hard nnd frequent iluggcr but rcti-euts to somewhat underhanded defensive work- when faced by n butler man.

Has given us the world's highest standard of Jiving; Tou'll agree that-advertising has just one main purpose —to sell goods or services. And you'll agree that when more sales are made, there's just naturally more work to be done. So more sales mean rnore jobs. Yes, and better jobs, a chance for promotion, or for a raise in pay. More sales mean more jobs at the factory. More jobs at the mines and mills and farms that supply materials that factory uses.
