Co t«(>rr«»J* 1W ly fen**, NMM. he Dim*** % HtA S«WM XXVIII TUST the same, my ear looked * so bad the next morning tha : I went to a doctor, who drainec out the blood for me with syringe and got it down to practically normal size. It was still badly discolored. I was sure Betty Jane wouldn't believe that I got it in the real-estate office where I said I was working, to explain why I wasn't short of money. Ma didn't believe it jwhen I told her. As it turned out, I didn't have to make excuses, as the first thing Betty Jane said when she saw me was "Don't tell me, Freddie, that a door in that real- estate office opened accidentally and hit you on the ear, because not only will I not believe it, but I do not want you to lie to me one more time. It's easy to see that you have been wrestling again and don't think I didn't find out that A, there was never any insurance class on Friday nights, and B, the course ended last week. My faith in you has been misplaced. Here is your ring and I do not ever wish to 'see you again." I stuck the ring in my pocket, it being a pure-white three- eights carat, which is almost a whole half carat, that I bought 'through a Greek friend of Mile's. To make a long story short, ! Betty Jane did not cool off. In fact, the next day when I called her up at the telephone in the corner store, she added a few things to what she had added the night before, and when I just casually mentioned having met a blonde lady wrestler who would help me in a career instead of working against me, she only laughed so loud it hurt my ear drum. "Freddie," she said, "you are so perfectly oblivious, it's funny. If you think your silly attempt to make me jealous will have any effect, you are even stupider than I thought you I could see that she was in a difficult frame of mind, so when she slammed the receiver down I didn't put another nickel in to call her back. I am not one to take lying down having a receiver hung up on me, so I had a chocolate ice cream soda right there in the store, which Mr. Watts, the owner, served me. Just then the next issue of final newspapers came in and I bought one, and what should I see on the sport page, which I naturally turned to first, but that Ruby Jewell and Tucky Tucker are on a card at the Arena that same night. The Arena was one place I would have liked to wrestle in, because al! the headliners work there, but I wasn't jealous of Ruby or Tucky. I had met the promoter several times. He had been a fiddler before he began promoting, which showed how much he knew about wrestling. • * • T FOUND out that Ruby and Tucky were already in town and learned where their trailer was parked. I decided to drive down there, as Milo was following Dawn Somewhere, and had eft me his car. I left right away, Defore I got over being mad at Betty Jane for the way she was mad at me. ,The trailer park wasn't very big and their trailer was the argest in it, so I saw it right away. I drove in and tooted my horn. In a second Ruby came out from in back of the trailer. dressed in what I guess you would call lady wrestler's tights and etc. She looked real swell n them and so did her muscles, )ut they didn't swell too much to keep her from looking refined. "Hello, Honeyboy," she said. I said, "Hello," and she said, 'Well, this is a surprise." which bowed how glad she was to ser me. Mutt jm win and I thought I'd drop around. Maybe you and Tucky would like to go for a ride." "Tucky took the car to do some shopping, but I'd like to go," she said, which was fine, as there is strictly nothing better than taking »ne girl for a ride, whereas two presents a problem, if you know what I mean. "Come on back of the trailer," she said. "I am doing my barbell exercises, and as soon as I have done 97 straight lifts and no jerks, we can go." While she exercised, I just watched, as there is something about a girl doing bar-bell exercises that is very interesting. * * * A BOUT the time she got up to 62, my count, she said, "You know, Honeyboy, I think this Milo who took us out that night must be the best wrestler in the world. I have told many people about him hanging three head holds to three different opponents at one time, but nobody believes me." "I know. I have the same trouble. He is not only the best wrestler, but also the strongest man that ever lived. He can carry a full-grown cow oo one shoulder and a full-grown bull on the other, which is no bull." "You have actually seen this?" Ruby spelled herself at 70. "No, but Milo has told me so, and I have seen him do so many amazing things that I would be- ieve anything." At last she reached the fatal number and threw the bar-bells under the trailer, "A quick shower and I'll be with you in .0 minutes." Knowing Betty Jane and what her 10 minutes were, I thought t would probably be an hour before she would be ready, by which time Betty Jane Blane would be eating her dinner and here would be no percentage in driving Ruby Jewell in front of her house. I had no more than hought the thought than her* s Ruby, all dressed up and look- ng as effeminate as it is possible o look, which is plenty, as any- ;ody \vho has seen her could tell yop a • B Why couldn't she be satisfied to play the piano like other little girls 1 * "Oh, how terrible!
