attendance at ringside for this card. The program for this card notes that Mauldin had “gained possession of the state championship belt put up by promoter Paul
Jones”. It added that Jones had “intended for the belt to be competed for in a tournament, although he is willing to concede that Mauldin would have had an excellent
chance to win it”. It also featured an ad for Stan Raymond’s “Sportscope” program airing on WATL AM radio, stating it covers “All the News from the World of Sports”,
broadcasting Monday through Saturday at 6:30 PM. There was cooperation between the promotion and Raymond’s show to advertise and discuss the local wrestling
scene, as well as feature occasional interviews with wrestlers. Besides noting that Jones is the promoter, the staff credits in the program also mention Bert Prather
(Publicity), Bill Hartman (Ticket Sales), Fat Elrod (Announcer), Simon Davis (Timekeeper), and Dr. Samuel Green (Physician). Hartman was a former promoter in Atlanta
for the company. It was announced that Ralph Garibaldi would be wrestling on the card on February 1, 1946, and that Young Londos and Bill Longson would be
