I could see that she had been crying and I thought mayoe my pa had died at last, but no. She said with a funny : look on her face, "Freddie, my dear little boy, there is some mail for you on. toe mantel in the I parlor." ' I didnt get the whole angle as •it was a long time since she had called me her dear little boy, but I went in and looked. There it was, which I should have known ,jn the first place—my draft notice. Next day, when I met Milo, I told him what had happened and what I had to do. It ended up with, something I hadn't expected. "Milo, me, good American. Fed go war, Milo go itoo. Milo win 'war. Is nobody can lick." j This fellow at the recruiting 'office—a sergeant, as I learned later—listened while I explained how I had got my draft notice • and decided that, being patriotic, I would enlist before I was drafted. He didn't seem to be as interested as I was, but he said, "Okay, buddy. Go in there, but you should understand that this is the Army and it is strictly un- permissible to take pets with you. What kind of animal is it, and what does it feed on—bananas?" 1 At first I didn't know what he was talking about and then I realized it was Milo. It seems that not only was Milo too short, but he was also overweight and a couple of other things. Being the strongest man in the world, it was naturally difficult for him to believe that any army wouldn't be glad to have him. In the Army, you are not supposed to call anything by its name, but invent another nr.r-o that stands for the real harder, so the enemy won't find out, say "Operation" in front of it. Some of the names were awful silly, I thought, but if they prevented national security, it was okay with me. Almost immediately I got into what was called "Operation Toe-Hold." But something else first, 'before I tell you how that happened. Anything with the word "Operation" in front of it was a top- priority secret, which means that it is the secret the enemy learns about first. Not that it mattered in my case, for it would have been no secret to any of the enemy, seeing me, that I could take them over three falls to a finish- Anyway, while T was in Operation Toe-Hold, I never said anything to a living soul and never met any dead ones. Now it can be told. I taught men to rassle. got home. When I pulled up in front of Betty Jane's house in Milo's car and pressed on the horn, she came running out and hugged me right in front of the whole street. She said, "Oh Freddie, you look wonderful," and I said, "Betty Jane, you look pretty good yourself." I had only a 10-day leave, and before it was over, we decided to get married right away, which we almost didn't, because I felt I had to be fair to her and explain all about Operation Toe- Hold. For a moment I thought that she was going to give the ring back again and I did some fast talking. I told her that it was the best way I could contribute to the war effort and that I had been ordered into this top-priority secret operation. She thought a few minutes, then said, "No. Freddie, it isn't that I hale wrestling any more n^i.iC, and then, to make it I than any other so-called sport, -' -••—•* " ' "«_ .*^dMHfe. ,.,""*' ' " . *,ju. if you become good in it Hardly a week but you hear about a benefit for a boxer somewhere. I don't know just what becomes of wrestlers, but—" "They go on wrestling." I had her there. "Wrestlers are the only athletes who practically go on forever. Look at Stan Zbyszko." "You look at him- It would make me sick. I suppose he is short and fat, like your friend Milo." She spoke real sharp and I hardly knew what to say. Then aL" of a sudden she said, "I will marry you under one condition, which is that you give me your solemn promise to give up wrestling when you get out of the Army, and also that you will not have anything more to do with Milo." There was nothing to do but promise her that once I took the car back to Milo I wouldn't correspond with him even so much as to send a postcard. There is no need telling about the leaves I got, or how disappointed I was when Frederika turned out to be a girL * * * HPHE minute I got out of uni- •*• form the problems began. For one thing, none of my clothes would fit, and I had to buy new ones. Betty Jane had been living with her folks for so long that she wanted a home of her own, but where to find one? Then there was the matter of a job. I tried a couple, but I was too big for most anything but working in a warehouse or going back to some supermarket. I had made some extra money betting on how good I was at wrestling in the operation I told you about, but that was going fast. One day when I came home from looking for some kind of iob that women weren't doing, Betty saw how discouraged I was. "Fred, 1 just thought of something. Imagine both of us ^orgetting that insurance course you took for a whole winter!" She was sure a smart kid. I remembered right away how you first sold only a $25,000 policy and then worked it up to $100,000, or even more.
