Diif7**Hl bf HtA S«r^o« XXVI T THOUGHT real fast and said that the insurance course was two nights a week, which gave me a night for wrestling when I could get bouts. Betty Jane said: "Do you think your father will pay for the courses for you if you're not working yet?" I could have snorted with laughter at that one, which went to show how much Betty Jane knew my old man, but I only said that J was sure I'd get the money someplace, which I was. All that winter I learned how to sell insurance in the course at the Y. I made up my mind that if there was an easy way to make a living, that was it. A lot of the course consisted of one fellow coming into an office, which wasn't there, of course, but the class pretended it was. In the office was a fellow sitting at the desk of the teacher and the fellow coming in would say to him, "Good morning, Mr. Jones. A beautiful morning, isn't if" because with insurance agents every day is beautifuL A $100,000 policy was a mere drop in the bucket, as everybody wanted insurance as soon as their buyer's resistance was over, which we learned the secret of. This class was on Wednesday night*, and I only hoped Betty Jan« wouldn't call up the Y and find out it wasn't on Friday nights too. I had become what you might call a regular attraction at Benny's club in Baltimore on Fridays. Milo spent so much of his time chasing around to Scranton or Detroit or wherever Dawn O'Day was, resulting in my having to go to Baltimore by train. Frank Loman helped rne a lot that way, him being Pancho Lopez, who had been my first versus in Baltimore. We wres- tl i *«ch other five or six times in frudi^c matches, when T was always a h«ro and he was booed I at. But with the fans you can't carry grudges too long as they get tired of that, so we wrestled numerable other adversaries among which were some of the best wrestlers that came to Baltimore. As it wasn't such a hot wrestling town except for Benny's little club, that wasn't saying much. At the matches in Camden, where Frank was always billed as Chief Choctaw, we never wrestled together It wo'ulc. have been bad for two popular grapplers to be matched against each other, as then who would the fans yell at? * * * T- SAID that Milo was always driving to places where Dawn O'Day was performing, which was her word for her act and not mine, but he could have had plenty of time to wrestle if Benny had given him bouts. Milo got so depressed that I finally went to Benny myself and insisted that Milo get matches. Lefkoe said, "Look, Honeyboy, you got to be reasonable. Haven't I treated you good and haven't you been making more dough than you ever did in your life before?" I started to say something but he cut me off. "I know what you're going to say, about how wonderful a wrestler this Milo is, but you have to have two to wrestle and who can I match him with? For one thing, when he gets on the mat, he starts right in throwing everybody out, giving the customers no show for their money. Look at the six- man rassle royal he was in last, which he won by bumping the other fellows' heads together For one thing, it is dangerous for those fellows." "But he won." "Sure he did. If I put him in there with a whole cage of gorillas, he would come out the winner." He chewed on his cigar. "Say. that'? an idea." I put a stop to him right away. "No friend of mine K gomg «v wrestle a lot of gorillas." "Maybe we could get a bear," Benny said, getting all • excited over the idea. "Also strictly out." "Another gimmick I thought ol was matching him with a very tall guy. My idea is to fix up a platform about a foot and a half high for Milo to wrestle on, to bring him up even with the big fellow. It's a new angle." "It ain't even a curve." Then I started to do some talking. "What would you say if I could get a versus for Milo who looks practically exactly like him except he's eight inches taller and has a square head instead of an egg head?" "I know what it's going to be. Milo will throw him." "Correct," 1 answered, "because he is the greatest wrestler in the world, as who else could have thrown three men at one time like Milo did? And it seems a shame that a guy so food shouldn't get a chance to prove it in something other than mud." 44T KNOW, that's alwayt tht trouble with a guy who's »o good, and in Milo's case it's complicated by being so funny-looking. I've thought of trying to match him with a fellow like John Pesek, who is so good that there are few of the top-notchera who will take a match with him." "Milo could throw him," I said confidently. •You would say that, and bt sh-wld, because this Pesek is a light man and would be giving aw»y a lot of weight, but it wouldn't draw." When Lefkoe made up his mind it was instantaneous or even faster. "Okay, you can offer a match to this big fellow. What's his name?" "Herman Glutz." "I have heard of comedy relief, bu\ this is a comedy without the relief. Can't we bill him under some other name?" "Herman is proud of his name and might not like to change it." "Okay, make it comedy all the way. I'll put them on as the Great Glutz and the Mighty Milo."
