This only made Milo madder than ever, because he thought •that his friend Herman was [laughing at him. ' As usual, the two grapplers ;\vere supposed to go into a ref- icree's hold. The trouble was that jMilo was so short it was hard ^lor him to reach up to where Herman's head was. When they worked out on the mat in the Y, they never bothered with the referee's hold. So Herman obligingly put his head down low enough for Milo to reach it. This was a mistake, as Milo was still mad about Herman laughing, at him, so once Milo got his hand on the back of Herman's neck and his other hand on Herman's arm he didn't stop there for a second but kept Herman's body coming forward until Milo had him in a head and far arm lock. Then Milo threw his legs forward and sat down, which caused all of Herman's poundage to fly over Milo's shoulder. He hit the mat with a thud that was so resounding I thought that poor Herman was practically killed. He lay there unconscious while all the fans stood up to see whether he was really dead or not. Milo was all over being mad and knelt down by, Herman, where he already was anyhow, and began to pat Herman's head and cry like he did when he hurt me once or twice. "Milo bad mans," 1 could hear him saying as a doctor climbed into the ring along with so many other people that 1 couldn't see Herman for all of them. 1 ran up the aisle from where 1 had been sitting, but so did everybody else. It was with a sigh of relief that suddenly 1 saw Herman's square head towering over the folks in the ring. He looked a little dazed, but by the time he got down to the dressing room, he was himself again. T WAS right in thinking that Benny Lefkoe would blame me for the Great Glutz and Mighty Milo fiasco. The next Friday night I was to wrestle a big hunk of meat who was called Tiny Something - or - other, as wouldn't you know. I was giving away 80 pounds to him on the assurance that he strictly couldn't wrestle and that all I was in for was a job of weight lifting, so naturally when Benny lit into me he compared Herman to this Tiny character. "Why, that match last week was nothing but a weight-throwing contest," he said. "I'm surprised that you even consider that Glutz guy a wrestler. The 50 bucks I gave him was just money thrown away. Besides, if he'd been killed or hurt I might have ben sued or lost my license. I've told that Milo character a dozen times that when he wrestles here he's got to give them a show, but he is just too knuckle- headed." When I could get in a word edgewise, which was about five minutes later, I reminded Benny of all the shows Milo had given them and what a success the Mud Battle of the Century had been, for instance. I said, "It's true that it's well-1 nigh impossible to make Milo understand that two minutes isn't a wrestling match. But when you question my judgment of wrestlt/s, you hurt something deep within me." 1 could see that Benny was touched, because his mouth opened so his cigar almost fell out. "It isn't that Herman is not strictly an A-l wrestler, but Milo is a man who doesn't know his own strength. Glutz could take half the bums you bring down here as wrestlers." I went on. : "Why, he's even better than I | am. because the times that we have worked out together, he has thrown me more often than I have him. although, of course he weighs 50 pounds more than I do." • * * "TUST another Tiny, as I told ** you in the first place," Benny sort of sneered, but I paid no attention and let the matter rest right there, as Herman had told me that he was only interested in wrestling for the fun of it and not as a career and had only come that one time because h« needed an extra 50 bucks. I was still a little sore at Benny just the same, especially after I got on the mat with this Tiny, who was anything but the hunk of meat Benny had said he was. He was very slow because of his weight which was 280 pounds, but he was far from being a push-over. I tried to work in back of him as much as I could or keep him on the mat in a defensive position, which made for a slow bout that ended in a draw. He got in a couple of reverse head locks, which gave me the first cauliflower ear I ever had. I hadn't realized it until I saw myself in the dressing-room mirror. My ear was puffed out almost the size of an apple and was not only black and blue but green and yellow as well. Tiny felt real bad about th« way my ear looked and that he had done it "Think nothing of it," I said. "A tin ear is the badge of a wrestler and nothing to be ashamed of (T« Be JOHNSON GRASS KILLER 99% Pure Sodium Chlorate 700 Lb. $ Drum - m I Webb Culvert Tile Co Highway 61 at State Line Phone OSborne 3-8414 PAINTING And RE - MODELING Interior and Exterior All kinds of floor work—Tile, Plastic Tile, Bathroom Tilfr General Contracting Extra Rooms, Car Ports, Breezeways.
