This one called himself "Mighty" too, but there was also a Mighty Atlas and a Golden Apollo, so just because Greeks liked to be Greek, you couldn't go by that. Honest, you couldn't keep Frederika away from watching him. Whenever he body-slammed the other fellow, which was all the time and hard enough to break the tubes in the set, she would call him names so loud he must have heard them whenever he was wrestling. Business had got so bad that every night when 1 came home I could hardly look at Betty Jane. 'To keep up her morals, I thought •up a Mr. Ziegenfuss, who was on the verge of buying the biggest ipolicy I had sold up to then, but ihadn't fallen yet. One night we were watching some old-time actor who depended upon a lot of hats for comedy, and she kept laughing fit to bust. Then, out of nowhere, she said, "I'm sorry, but there doesn't seem to be any wrestling on tonight. Don't you often wish 'I hadn't stood in your way? You might be famous now." "Of course not." I lied. "But you are in the top of physical condition. I bet you could still wrestle if you wanted to." "I made a solemn promise and I mean to stick to it." She practically crawled into my arms. "Dear, 1 love you for being so true," Betty Jane said, "but I hate to think that I stood in your way. You might have been rich and famous now, like the Mighty Milo is." I lied again. "Not me.* "Anyway. I've been looking up •bout him. Ht is your Milo Pau- lus, all right, and he lives in Omaha, where he" is wrestling next Tuesday night. Why don't you take the train out there and visit him?" It was my first Omaha, so as the train approached I looked out the window most of the time, but 1 soon saw that I hadn't missed much. Why would anyone want to live in a burg like this? I kept thinking, but after I got off the train at the station, I soon found out. It is on account of the beefsteaks. It seems that Omaha is a center of the meat-packing industry, which you do not need to have anyone tell you, as you can smell it in the air. On the train I had eaten nothing but a few sandwiches, so when 1 passed by a row of cafes with signs advertising T-bone steaks. I went into one. as if there is one thing 1 am a sucker for. it is T-bone steaks. * * » T>Y the time I got to the place where Milo was to wrestle that night I was hungry again. 1 had another T-bone steak. Now that I felt better. I went back and asked a fellow in the ticket office for Milo's address, as we were old friends. He looked over all of me that he could see in the window and said, "I wouldn't of thought he had a friend in the world, but if he has it would be you." As it was a kind of compliment, I think. I said, "Thank you." "It's five blocks down and two over to the left He lives upstairs." I followed directions, and "Milo's New Hellas Restaurant" was lettered on the windows. Inside it looked practically like the place where he used to work when he went to the old Y. I went to the counter and a Greek came out 1 asked if Milo was around, but he said, "Oppl stum- berg, pitch " "No. i am IK* Mkinf kinds of pie you have," I said. "but where the boss is." "Boss door side," he said, motioning around to the side of the building, where there was a door. A card over a bell button reads, "The Mighty Milo." in big letters, and underneath, "Katino Paulus, Mgr." A girl in a white uniform answered the door and when I asked if Milo was in she said, "No, but the missus is," which could have knocked me over with a feather. "I'm a friend of his," I said, and she said, "Come on upstairs and I'll announce you." which sounded pretty high-toned for Milo. * * * T WASN'T nearly done looking around when a reaJ stout woman came in. She was wearing some kind of long, flowing dress that was light blue in color. r hair was bright red and she would have been good-looking il she wasn't so fat. I mean that she must have tipped the scales at 217. or maybe even at 218, as it is harder to judge what a woman weighs because there are so many things you can't be sure about. She gave me the once-over and said, "You have some business with the Mighty Milo. I manage him." She sure looked AS though sb« could, too. in more ways than on the mat but all I said was "I'd like to se* him, »s we are old friends." She gave me a look I didnl like. "You mean that you art one of those who knew him when? Don't kid me, brother. Outside of Greeks there ain't any, except one. You're no Greek * Like that she stopped talking and put her hand to her mouth. "Why. Honeyboy. is it really yoa or do my eyes deceive me?" Realizing it wae Dawn O'Day by ncr voice, I arose to the occasion. "In the flesh—and I knew you the minute 1 laid my eyes on that beautiful dress you're wearing.
