HOT DCG/ DELICIOUSLY SEASONED WITH OUR CHILI AND CHOPPED ONIONS TAKE HOME SACK—4 FOR $1 KREAM KASTLE IN l.s... XXXI 'I'HE first month I did pretty I •*• good. I sold Betty Jane's pa land my pa, because Ma made ihim buy a policy when she heard •about Mr. Blane taking one. Also. !l sold a good many policies around both our neighborhoods to folks who knew that I had just come back from the service. The trouble was that except for Mr. Watts,- who has the store at our corner, who took one for $2,000, all the policies were for only $1,000. I had no luck at all with those $25,000 policies that you made into $100,000, or even half that much. Betty Jane turned out to be one wonderful little manager, too. She made hamburgs out of a pound of meat that were the best you ever tasted, considering • sine put a loaf of bread in it too, and stuff like the leaves of celery, which you couldn't e*t any other way. Fredrika sure thrived on her mother's cooking. You never saw a kid grow like she was doing, and I'd spend whole evenings with her, showing her holds and things. Of course, I had to do them playful- like, so her mother wouldn't catch on. Once in a while I was tempted to go to some promoter and get > '»- match or two a week, and put liis on easy street, but knowing • how Betty Jane felt about,it, wild angels wouldn't have drove me to ask her, and I wouldn't go back on my sacred promise. It shows how honor pays off. for the next week after 'the last tirre I was tempted, I sold three policies—two of them for $5.000 each. When I came home i.nd told Betty Jane she hugged and k:?r^d me and it was like old .limes on her folk's sofa. Finally, after we stopped. Betty Jane sci " "Freddie.* darling, will you bu;. me something?" I agreed right away. "Anything you want—dress, shoes, anything." "Oh, clothes," she said, as though they didn't mean anything to her, which they did. "I've got plenty of clothes. This is for Frederika, mainly, but we'll get a lot of pleasure out of it too. She's out playing on the streets now, and you know that this is not a very good neighborhood- If we had a television set, it would keep her in afternoons." "A TV?" I must have almost shouted. "Do you know what they cost?" "Yes. And I can get one at 20 per cent off. Also, Freddie, there is something I ought to tell you, I saved a little every month out of your allotment for something like this. Enough to pay the down payment. All we have to do is pay $9.43 a month." If you are a married man, you know that I ended up by giving in. • * * WELL, we watched all kinds of programs, and sure enjoyed them, except that it was the smallest set Betty Jan* could buy, and a lot of the tim* you weren't looking at anything but sparks and flashes. Then, one day when I was extra-tired, I turned on a wrestling show somewhere. Frederika began asking questions. "That is what your daddy u*«d to do before he became an insurance salesman," I explained. She seemed real interested, until Betty Jane came over to see what it was that kept the both of us so quiet. "Oh. wrestling! You shouldn't let the child look at that stuff Turn it off." I was starting to, because t was too tired to object, when she said, "Wait a minute. Isn't that the awful-looking Greek you used to know?" The one wrestler had long blond hair and tht other one had a loot pair of Mack mustaches. 1 ton of came to then, and he did look a little like Milo. The build was like his, so far as you could tell, the way the light always flickered. Besides, the announcer called him Milo. there was no doubt about that We watched for over 15 min* utes. 1 said, borrowing a leal from Betty Jane's book. "It can*t be my Milo, because A, I can't imagine him with a mustache, and B. there isn't a wrestler living who could stay with him this long, and C, nobody ever booed Milo. like these people are doing; they laughed at him account of his being so funny-looking." There was a louder noise of booing than before and we both realized it was • Frederika. because just then this Milo on the TV threw the tall blond fellow. It was Milo's fcind of fall, out I was still certain It wasn't him. That was the final, and we sat through most of another program before Betty Jane asked. "Where did that wrestling program come from, dear?" "New York, I think." "How much would that Milo have made?" * • * T HAD given up reading about wrestling, to keep the devil behind me, but I guessed, "Five hundred dollars, maybe. I used to get $125 a bout in that litti* club where I wrestled » Baltimore." You should have seen Betty Jane sit up. "Why, Frtddie, you never told me!" *I can't remember that ytw ever asked,* I said, and thought nothing more of it until I came home the next night and here was this giant-screen sitting where our little TV had been. I hadn't sold a policy in days, so maybe I was a little peevish when 1 said, "Say, what is this?" Betty Jane didn't seem to notice and greeted me with the biggest hug in weeks. "I traded that little old thing in on this. Imagine, they allowed enough to cover the down payment and it is only $12.33 a month." I tried to b* reasonable. "But we hadn't finished paying far the ethtr one." "It's the same ewnpany, siMy," she answered. (T« Be THCftCAlM'COyf By BILL WALKER 5UN6-UN KNOWS OtW? 14 FULLY COVERED WITH W. L.
