The Southern Democrat, May 15, 1940

Boxing and wrestling Friday night

Mike Chacoma, known as “Mighty Mike” to wrestling fans throughout the South, meets Prince Omar, the Persian nobleman, in the main event of the American Legion show Friday night at the Community House. Omar, who with his partner, lost the team match last week when Leo Jensen got mad at Omar and left him in the ring to face two men alone, is anxious to come back before local fans, and asked that officials import the toughest wrestler they could get and he would make mincemeat out of him.

Hubert Wright takes on Tom Sanders of Cleveland in one of the boxing bouts and Buford Blackwood and Roy Blackwood tangle in another three rounder. George Mooney of Oneonta is coming back after a layoff of several months and meets Leon Adams of Blountsville who looked good in his match last week. These two boys will be football rivals next fall and this bout should provide plenty of action.

Sheer and lovely

Fashion is going in for sheer and lacy lingerie blouses with an enthusiasm that knows no bounds. Here is a blouse that will do double duty in that it can be worn neatly under a suit and it also looks well with a long skirt for evening because of its waistcoat style. The sheer white blouse is of the sweet simplicity type that captures the fancy at a glance. Bands of embroidered organdy and lace alternate, with a tapering waistline that zippers down the front under a lacy frill.

National Red Cross sets quota for Blount

National Headquarters of American Red Cross, in their campaign to raise a minimum of $10 million for War Relief, has assigned Blount County a quota of $400. This campaign is now on and we are urged to get our quota at once in order to give war-torn countries of Europe immediate aid which they so badly need. All the countries thus far involved in armed conflicts, except those of Germany, Russia, and Japan, will share in the benefits of this campaign.
