PAGE EIGHT ' JJLYTHKVILLK COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, FtiBKUARY M, 1915 Welch Brothers Win Tag Match Subdue Eddie Malone In Rough Arena Show, Roy Flattens Knox ' He may not heed It, but Eddie Malonc, fhe smiling Irish wrestler, learned a valuable ring lesson Monday ntglit. Eddie learned, perhaps to his sorrow, thai it Isn't healthy to get too rough with the Welch brothers, unless you arc qualified and sufficiently fortified to do something about It. .•..''. Malone tried his hand at this business of getting double-rough and tough with Hoy and Jack In the tag match feature of Promoter Mike Meroney's weekly ring show and failed. He not only was 'unequal to the task, but. came out of the torrid battle with a busied beak and a whole flock of ribs dLv located and torn-loose from (heir moorings. In fact, he did not come out of the fight. He was -bodily carted out of the ring, on the shoulders of Promoter-Referee Meroney, taken to the dressing room but was unable to come back for the third-and deciding fall. Injury''is'Cllmax It was a climax to Ihe most bruising match in llic history of wrestling hero; a slam-bam affair that bore strange resemblance to a typical bar-room flght'.as'deplet- ed in the movies. Only, tills light was waged in the center 'of the ring, on the edge of Jhe'ring, and .even outside the confines of 'the square^ circle, .much .to.the. satisfaction and thrilling experience of art overflow" house ~6t" "customers who jammed the small arena expecting such an affair . ' ; And the quartet of feuding giants didn't let them down'. FYom the opening of the Initial nialch between Jack Welch and Malone, uiW HI Roy Welch pinned the shoulders, of "Bad Buddy" Knox, 'it"yi;as ac-l tlon in the rough; action that'did* n't resemble a fist fight! but .WAS a fislic brawl throughout. ' • . , Even though-the.rWelohcs/were the final winners of Ihe hiain event tag mutch; they had no : easy time of it. Quite the contrary, they had to call on everything, they had. to subdue their large, and '.determined foes after having b'ecn'beaten In' both the preliminaries. .,, • Welches Are Pinned • : -•Highlight, of course, came during the scrap for the second fall. Malone had pinned Roy,with a double Jack knife and Knox - subdued Jack in the first fall, described by the oldest and most qualified' fans its the grandaddy of the rough "matches. Then the' storm .broke. •The Welches, their Indian ire aroused,'went to work. They singled out Malone as ylatlm No. 1, mainly because Knox, leery-of., pic glenm in Roy's eyes, voluntarily refused to tangle Into a free-for-all though brought Into the fray by torce. Roy '.. started the rough' stuff with M«r '• lorie with the' dreaded body slam. : Twice Roy popped him against the ' mat. The next time he rushed to ; the southwest ring - corner and slammed the already woozy 'Malone. across the turnbucxle of the top strand of rope. Roy could have pinned Malonc .then and there. But he had other plaits. Evidently,.he figured that Eddie needed'a lesf»n. Deer Trapping Project Teaches Game Hunters Much, Exploding Popular Beliefs On Feeding By N'EA Smlce DEVOTION, N. C,, Feb. 13.— Game hunters are learning n number of things In connection with the most successful deer- tnipplng experiment in the south, one being that the deer Is an Infallible long range weather prophet, according to Lyman Deberry, leader of the project. ' Dcborry clnlms he can predict Ihe weather 24 hour.s in nclvinice by the number of deer he catches. When deer move around and pass up the tempting apples in his tra]vs, they arc looking for cover and it means Ice and snow or cold winds. However, If they gobble up Ihe bait, the'weather will fair olf or stay moderate for several days. In a federal-slate project, proximnlcly HO deer have caught In traps .set on the up been 7000 acre estate of R, J. Reynolds here. Of these more than 100 have been transported safely to (he new Uwharrle Game Preserve In Mont- gomery'county. Four deer were lost in (rapping and the others were released because they were too large 'to handle or too old for stocking purposes. PROJECT SETS liKCOHI) When the project was set up, it was'estimated it would cost 510,000 and. take three years to gel it functioning. It's now apparent that the goal of transferring 125 deer will • be reach«1 In one .season at a cost of only about $5.000. n record unparalleled in projects of this sort. Ten years ago GO head of deer were placed, on the estate and they h(iye Increased to an estimated 700. The tract, composed largely of abandoned many old DOPE ! BUCKET Trapped, Uggcd . . . and ready for freedom. farmlands, contains apple orchards which still bear some fruit. ' The .deer trajw, of the Wisconsin pole tyj>c, arc set around these old orchard*!* and baited with apples. It; Is necessary to keep fallen fruit into the at both ends and tripped by a wire lightly triggered, which releases doors at (lie open ends simultaneously. Deer are removed early In the morning and transferred to a truck cage In a specially built transfer learned l.s that, contrary to popular belief, deer are not more easily trapped when .snow and Ice conditions make food scarce. 'Hie herds drift back Into the mountains and seek cover in this kind of weather and arc not inclined to feed in (he valley till the weather moderates. Trapping has been best on warm, sunny days. While (he traps arc set for deer, other animals sometimes find their way Into the snares. Once Delicrry found a cow in one of his traps, but the biggest nuisance is the rabbit. One night in n single trap a dozen rabbits were Imprisoned. But Debcrry has a record of 23 deer taken in a single night. Sometimes a deer gets balky and won't Icuve the trap voluntarily. Worried and frantic, they have been known to lie down nnd try to die "just for spite." Indeed, Dc- berry relates that once a deer actually dirt that very thing. Aj J. P. IMPROVES GEOGRAPHY . . If the Naval and Army and Marine recruiters are ring wise after this war Is over, they will capitalize on the spectacular geographical experiences of the boys—and girls—In an effort to get and keep their enlistment quotas. Take for instance, the thrilling travel narrative as revealed by Lieut, (j.g.)' Howard Moore.. . . For a fellow who hasn't been in the Navj two years yet, Lieut; Moore has come in for his share of the new faces nnd places on the Eastern side of this world. . .

The tagging Is done 1 by clipping a small aluminum las; onto the deer'.s ear. ONCE CAUGHT A COW ...It's only a two-hour ride in the truck to the new Uwharric game refuge, and when released the deer streak for the first cover in slijht. Long ago this section bad nil It. 1 ; deer hunted out. but this rc-slocklng will make It preserves one of in the the finest deer south. Another thine the trappers hnvc which Roy claimed lie didn't hear. Buddy hammered him from plllai to post without a letup, then pinned him with a body pin after the violent nssaull. Roy was so infuriated that he Insisted on going right into tlic t«i: match without a rest, and begged for Knox to oppose him. But middy wisely avoided the clash until Roy "cooled off" a bit. But he loo paid for his ruse before the thing was over.
