"Wild Dill" Canny, the mat villain who always causes a furor when on the show, draws Hoy (Egghead) 0 Allen, the human kangaroo, as his c partner In this four-star event that has every Indication of turning Into a super free-for-all, knock-down- and-dr»g-oiit event to reach a new high in ring action and activity. Herciige Theme Present This program will not be without the revenge Ih'eni'e. In fact, U Is studded with feudlsts. Oddly, both members of one team are bitter rivals of Canny and quite probably ' will be out to seal)) the Atlanta toughie. Welch Inherited his feud with Canny. The other Welch boys, Roy and Joe, have long been on the black list of "Wild Bill", and vice versa. They have.been 'so busy attempting, , to eliminate the other that they have been unable to bury the hatchet. Even'.if they did go through the motions of settling their differences tlierc is every probability that the -handle would be left out—to crack the other on the head with It. -Jack made his initial local start, in a match against Canny. H was on Christmas night when the first six-man tag match ever attempted was unveiled to the satisfaction of a packed house. Welch and Canny carried on with their traditional rivalry in great style. The Individual battle was particularly outstanding as 'Jack sought to get in his licks against Canny. He did, but got some in return. ' Gels His Chance Two weeks ago Canny and Yaqul Joe tangled more than once, despite the fact that the Indian was not "a participant. He substituted for Meroney as referee and came in for the repeated attacks from Canny that Mike had been'getting all these years. As usual, the trouble started when Joe kept breaking Bill loose from his foe. Bill was at his roughest, working the choking stunt overtime. The referee naturally wouldn't let him go unheeded. That didn't suit Bill one bit. Once he asked Ya"QUI to pull oil his pants If he were going lo wrestle. Another lime iic squared off with Joe to his sorrow He was clipped on • Ihc chin and all but kayoed.

His friends told him what a fine physical specimen he was, urged him to go out for the lank coi'jis. Finally, early In December, in self defense he talked to Coach Willis Casey. "How much swimming have you done?" he asked. "None," Twining replied. Casey almost fell off thn bench. At the start, Twining was listed as a promising newcomer, but Casey stuck him in the opening meet with Georgia Tech just for the sake of experimentation. The results wewre amazing.
