They Hook up Over in Greensboro for the Western conference championship. They Are tied with the purple whirlwind and need the Victor a to Clinch the title. In the last meeting High Point returned victorious by several Points. Since then however the Bison suffered a slump and there is some question about them being fully recovered although a convincing Triumph Over Reynolds indicates the local Are in top shape for the Battle tonight anyway i Hoie so. Last but not least is the return of the purple Flash to j the local wrestling wars. The reason i mention this is for i the Benefit of a letter writer who let me know in no Uncer i Tain term that the Flash was a scoundrel bum brute Etc. J i wish to agree with him but at the same time prevail upon j him to accept the boxing and wrestling commissions term-1 nation of the suspension. There a no need taking a Guys j bread and butter because he gets too rough. Modern wrestling is rough and there is no getting around it. I sort of think if they want to go in there and neck one another a Noggin off for Money then let them do it. I . However i do agree with my correspondent that the Flash should be punished. A two week suspension is enough but the commission has tagged a qualification on the flashes return that should Calm him Down. In Case he does no to behave himself then he faces a lifetime suspension. And that s a pretty Tough ruling to make. Anyway lets see what the wretch does when he come Back.
