Frank Gotch, whose book on wrestling had first initiated me 1 into the noble art, and also Hack- enschmidt, the Russian Lion, who . was the wrestler I'd taken my name from, having had it given to .me by the manager of that - burlesque theater. We both -thought this was quite a coinci- marks about Ruby, but somehow she could never do it with conviction, so now Ruby did it. Milo offered to teach Tucky more about wrestling and invited her to come down to the Y, where we still worked out sometimes, but she said, 'TSIo, thank you, we are doing all right. What the fans really want to see is not lady wrestlers but two girls puling each other's hair that the world is a pretty small place after all, especially, as Ruby told me, this Russian Lion was the only man her fathertiad never been able to throw. It still bothered her old man quite a lot, she said, although he was in his 80's now and had given up wrestling except that he had xtaught her all the holds she knew. She had only taken up lady wrestling two or three years ago, as before Ruby was a very intelligent girl, besides having a build that came from having her father teach her wrestling for so long. swimmer and also an amateur to mek« a real good living at ' either sport. Now she and Tucky ' were doing well, as they had an * agent : Tucky's name was really Kentucky, as her. parents were there with a circus that was playing in that state when she was born. Her agent said Kentucky was too long a name to say all the time, "and besides it sounded too much ^."like a brand of whisky for a •••" lady wrestler to have. The ;*Tucker part was strictly an alias ! as her folks were Italian trapeze t artists even in the old country- Tucky did not know anything about wrestling except a few 'holds that Ruby Jewell taught h«r but it didn't matter much as x they followed a routine that their 'agent had worked out for them. went to see them thought of her as their wife and Tucky as their girl friend, and what married man would not want to see his wife get her hair pulled by his girl friend sometime? * • * AFTER dinner we drove the girls back to where they lived, which turned out to be in a trailer park. They had the longest trailer I had ever seen, and on each side was painted their names in big letters. I asked champion lady wrestler of the TJ. S., like was printed underneath. She explained that in lady wrestling you had to b* champion of somewhere. Tucky Tucker could have been champion of Kentucky, because, for one thing, she doubted that there in' Kentucky, but their agent thought that too many fans mightn't even know where Kentucky was, so she called herself the champion of the United States and Canada. They said good night quickly, explaining how they usually followed very regular hours, which we would understand, being iti the same profession. It must have been almost four a. m. be,A- first Tuoky had done the .'ore I got to bed. One thin?. Pa •afieeang and malting nasty r«-i didn't gripe at me any more j about staying out late since I started to pay my board ahead of time and had given Ma $5 to buy herself something, which she did, using it for a payment on the washing machine. When I had breakfast I was going to tell her that I had been invited out to dinner with a couple of ladies and that it had all been a very high-class affair, but on second thought, I decided not to. • • * TT wasn't that easy with Betty Jane Blane. "Can it be that you have gone back on your sol- j emn promise and have been i wrestling with that crazy Greek I again?" she asked. It was luckj j that, she put the question the wa> she did, so I could answer perfectly technically that no, 1 was not out wrestling with Milo. 1 would have had to resort to a white lie if she had asked if I had been out with another girl, as something told m* that w« would not see eye to eye v as to what a nice, refined girl Ruby Jewell really was. Betty Jane also said that maybe she had made a mistake in getting me to give up my jot in the supermarket as now I was doing nothing jrt alL To quiet her, I told her that I was about to be fired from th« supermarket when I resigned and there was* no need to have that on her conscience. I went on to say that after thinking H over, I thought it would be a waste of time for me to go to college and I would do much better to go to night school. There were classes beginning at the Y in a lot of educational subjects such as English and how to write a business letter. Also a course on how to sell insurance and maybe that would be good for me to take, as insurance was something everybody bought if you know how to sell it to them. "Why, Freddie," she said, standing up straight, "I do think you have an idea there. It seems to me that you were cut out to be an insurance salesman better than anything I can think oL The course on how to write a busine"- 'p'tpT is Rood TOO."
