Is scheduled to team with Schnabel In the tag match feature of the Legion's card. Opposing Schnabel and Haymnka on the card Is another television favorite, Chief Little Fox and * young heavyweight, Hal Keene, who will be making his return to the Blytheville ring alter several months absence.

In last Monday night's bout Schnabel proved to Blj'theville mat fans that he is every bit as rough »s the television announcers make him .sound. And with Haymaka, who has the reputation of being one of the toughest opponents in the game, In his corner things should'get a bit lively.
