Everything went along peacefully—too quiet lo be comfortable. We knew ihat something was up. And It wns—Just before we ncared the target. The Germans threw Hie whole air force 'nl us. Phew, T ne.vcr suw so many planes conic at us. There were all sorts/sizes and shapes, 110's 410's, I03's, 101's, and some o[ Ihc boys swore they saw even sonic bombers that were being used as fight- a bombing raid over enemy territory.

"Or hasn't got enough sense to get- scared?" we prompted. "They don't come thai crazy'i', came the quiet reply. . It was Lleul. Hcrschell (Hcrky) Moslcy, veteran of 31 missions as pilot of a B-17, 2G of lliem over Berlin and German targets, talking. And there was a certain look In Ills eye, a dead seriousness In his set Jaws that had every evidence that he wasn't fooling or talking for conversation.

During an encounter Promoter Mc- roney, who is anything but a weakling and not far away from the 200-pound mark, tried to break the Chief by tackling a leg. Ho couldn't lift It; off the ground. While Mike was straining every' muscle Hie Chief hurled Moody across the ring as nonchalant and effortless as the average man would flip n cigarette and stniicd walking across the ring, dragging the promoter iilong the mat. The fans howled. ; Chief .Saunooke tcok the first fall with a leg bar and back breaker' in five minutes after toying with Moody. '-Moody made ills most serious, bid to start Ihc second fall.

Fast,, clever, ''and unusually- skilled, these two giants really ;put on a : dazzling exhibition that drew repeated plaudits from the' thrilled fans. Carlin can credit this 'victory to his; rhig generalship. Out maneuv: tred by the faster, younger Mexican champion, lie set trap after trap arid found a willing sucker that led to his triumph. Especially was that true during the first fall. All during the fall he had been gelling to Tuffy's back •for no apparent offensive reason. Each lime Truesdale would reach, through Ills own legs, grab one of -Carlln's legs mid flip him to Ihe -mat. He pulled that stunt at a half dozen times. Then Swede sprang the trap. As Tntosdnle .reached through again the Swede .clamped him by both wrists and : pinned him with an alligator clutch as slick as Ihe tarbaby caught the rabbit. The time was 25 minutes. Tf.rtrpo Spcceil Up Never In the powder-puff, the match slipped into high gear during', the second'fall as action find skill reached its pe.''k. Carlin started roughing his younger foe ..but discovered tiiat l-,vo could play -that game,. and how! Truesdale foftencd the vetenn with a series of flying head /•jclss.irs—seven of .'em in a row—then polished him off with flying ttickles In six mln- • ulcs. . Both dead tired from the ter- .rific pace set in the first two sets, they didn't slow down but kept hammering away with everything crawled Inlo that big baby, gave her the gun and headed across that channel I was scared. And I didn't relax until we were back safely on terra, flrinn, and I do mean flrina and less terror. There is no way to describe It. except that you're just plnln scared. IN GOOn HEALTH Quiet, non talkative, hml In surprisingly good health 111 spite of the ordeal that lie must have endured during those nerve wracking ers. "Then the fight began. Our fighl- crs lit Into them like a hen,on a June-bug and went round ami round ns we continued on to our objective. The boys did a great Job that day. More thn 100 German fighter:, went down. Our force lost n few. We were lucky. A few holes In our ship, but nothing serious." Hcrky modestly pooh-poohed any suggestion Ihat he boys did an v better jab at bombing than the' rest, it became business lo (hem, serious business in an effort lo bring to a close as quickly possible this killing anil dying. He said they were Just chauffeurs, that their trips were routine and usually without fanfare and excitement, save fighter action and ack-ack.

And there were many who fell during those to talk about what missions. Reluctant lanpmed on any, Hcrky did describe a few raids under our per- ilstciil barrage of questions. "What happened on Ihat first raid over Germany, Berlin to be exact, in earl s . March that we read about?. I popped to him. "Nothing", lie popped back. "We iusl went along for the ride. The sky was overcast and not « fighter came up. Wo Just flew over our :nrgel, dropped our eggs through .he clouds, turned bended back home." "How about No. 2?' "No«', you've got around and something Ihere", ho said wilh a grin, A grim iu sight. The finish came with a resounding, sickening thud ; Carlin had been-pounding the kid .•something awful and twico appeared the winner/only to have Truesdale wiggle out of body pins following haymakers . and flying • tackles. As Johnny started a hook to the body as a clincher Tufty leaped forward and took it below the belt. Naturally, he went down and Carlin fell aboard for the fall. .It. was some lime before the champion could be rnrlcd off lo (lie dressing room for treatment. Despite Hip foul blow, which obviously was unintentional and accidental, the victory stood.
