He wasn't sore, though, [once we got out of the ring, but [be put up a terrific objection rtrom the mat, practically telling Everybody only one shoulder had been touching, il any, and that not for any count whatever. You never heard such booing, and when I took the applaudits from the crowd there wasn't even a single razzbejry io my direction. Milo, Dawn O'Day, and Benny •Leffcoe were there, but not even sitting in ringside seats, which shows how nearly the joint was sold. out. Maybe, like the papers said, 2000 people were turnad away. Anyway, Benny was sitting on one side of Dawn and Milo oo the other, which showed like nothing else could have done bow I had patched up all between them. When I got back to the dressing room, only Pancho was there, and as we were the final match, we had the place to ourselves. While he was taking off those green trunks of his, he said, "'Look, kid, I hope you don't care if I give you a little advice. Don't think that it is because you fcung that scissors OD me, as I have had many a scissors hung ion me before and one fall ain't ja winter. We have a good combination here, and the next time Benny puts us on together the customers will be back to see if I can make a comeback." By now I had grown used to ! Pancho and from the soft way he was speaking, I knew he wasn't sore While I started to take a shower, he went on talking. "You have a chance to make more dough than you ever made in your life before. 1 * Right away I felt disappointed in him. thinking he wanted to :-nbe "no so tied win the next ii.ue we met i said, 'When . to wrectl* 1 mad* t«> m* mind to be strictly on the up and up and never throw a bout." He laughed, showing all his gold teeth. "You must have been a college football player or something before you took up grunting and groaning. In this racket, throwing bouts is practically unheard of. I'll tell you why." * * * TTE took my place in the shower and blowed out the water so he sounded like a sea lion or something. By the time he was done, I was practically dressed. He said, "Rest yourself oo the corner of the table there, while I do some explaining. The trouble is that you are like a lot of wrestlers and like all the customers. They think that wrestling should be like boxing, which it ain't Take a boxer. How many times a week can he go 10 rounds in competition? The answer is once, maybe, and he can't do that if he gets a shellacking. In a year he can take about 20 bouts, and with luck he's good for 10 years. Then he's washed up. Newspapers call a fellow over 30 a scarred veteran." Everybody knows that boxers are sometimes punchy after their first hundred fights, but I didn't see personally what it had to do with me. Lopez went on: "Now take a wrestler. Me, for instance. I have been wrestling more years than you are old. got a son pushing 30 and three grandchildren. Next time I see you I'll show you their pictures How many times a week do you think I wrestle? Once a week here with Benny, where I'm m villain. Alternate Tuesdays I'm Chief Choctaw at a club in Norfolk, where the minute 1 approach the ring, everybody stands up and cheers, as thet* I'm a hero. It's a smaller place than Benny runs here, but I set a nundroc a DOIU Beside? t is Frank Loman, and get better dough than here, even- I can wrestle five or six nights a week and throw in a couple matinees without even feeling it. Now, does that add up to something to you?" I guessed that it did. "To stay in business a promoter needs to keep the crowd coming, which he does by putting guys on his card who have a following, and to have a following, a wrestler must be liked so people come to see him win, like they do me in Norfolk, or he must be bated enough so they want to see him lose, like they do here with me. people like you, but fans are funny people — like all people. Most men in their hearts don't like a good-looking guy with straight features and curly hair who is five-ten-and-three- quarters and tips the seal* at 194 pounds, besides giving with the muscle. They would like to see his nose broken or his face scarred or a fresh blue cauliflower hung on his ear. They want to anticipate all that during a match, which is why they come. Now when you clamped that scissors on me in seven minutes and 10 seconds, they wen* out of here feeling cheated. , 'There's one other thing: K m fighter gives another fighter a real shellacking, chances are he'll do the same every time they meet The fact that you threw me tonight demonstrated only that you're a pretty good wrestler. If we'd wrestle at Harrisburg, I might throw you. I know guys I've thrown 50 times and they've thrown me is many. That's another reason fans say that wrestling's fixed — because they don't see why fellows can pin each otbty so often. It i* not good for wrestling lor them to think so, but it is an angle of this business you can't explain." I hadn't thought about it that way before, so we made ft gentlemen's agreement that if we were versus again, like it seemed likely, we would give a 20-minute o"'v'~ ; >v i before we went to JOHNSON GRASS KILLER 99% Pure Sodium Chlorate 700 Lb.
