BLYTHEVILIIF CURB MARKET Main st.Wholesale or Retail XXXIV T HAD never before been in -*• such a big arena. Compared with Benny Lefkoe's little club of the old days, it just didn't— Benny's place, I mean. Other nights this was used for basketball, and the whole court, except where the ring was, appeared to be ringside seats. At the price they were charging, those seats alone must have grossed more than Benny's whole house. In addition there were stands on all four sides and a large balcony besides. I bet the whole place , could seat 10,000 people, i There were an awful lot of wires and machines around the ring platform, which Dawn told roe were for taking television. I thought it would be interesting to see television taken, especially as Frederika wasn't around to switch to another channel. Our seats were on the aisle, the fourth row from the ring. Dawn explained that she did not like to sit closer when Milo was wrestling, as who knew when he might get the notion to throw some mastodon of the mat into her lap, as a token of his love? Her seat was extra-wide, and I observed casually that it was pretty nice of the promoter to have a special chair for her. "The promoter being me, it isn't so remarkable," she said, a little stand-offishly, so that ] could see I had struck a wrong note. "In fact, we own a piece of the management in practically every show where Milo wres- ,tles." i "You've been pretty smart, 1 said admiringly, to get her away :from being huffy about the size of her seat. "Not me. Milo can think so iar ahead of me I feel sorry lor myself sometimes. He figured, •why wrestle for somebody else to make the money off you? The rc?tnurants the same way. We lAeni into a place that charged, him 50 cent* lor a head at k*- I tuce, so he figured how much it :ost,' and just like that we were in business. All I did was get him to grow that mustache. I tell you, Honeyboy, before we were married I spent whole nights trying to figure out something to do so people wouldn't laugh at him. Then I happened to think of my father, who has a restaurant in Scranton. We were afraid of him as children and I figured it was his mustache. When he cut it off he was nothing but a quiet-looking little guy that nobody would be afraid of. It took a lot of coaxing to get Milo to start growing his, but it has given him a new ring personality, as you will see." S HE also told me that since she had been in show business, it was only natural that she hac some ideas on showmanship, like the red limousine with "The Mighty Milo" painted on it in which we had driven over to the arena. It was on its way back for Milo now. "Daddy dresses at home and rides over in his robe, as it is more spectacular. I picked brigh' red as his theme color out o: sentiment. The first time I ever saw him, he was stepping out o that red roadster he used to have. I've never been sorry we met, as in most ways he is a wonderful husband, except 10 what his diet has done to m figure." As she had just eaten a two- pound steak with a big dish o French fries, without counting the pie, I felt like suggesting tha maybe it wasn't only the diei She must have read my mind for she added, "I know what wou are thinking, and I didn't mean it that way. It's all that lettuce , and stuff makes me so hungry. Where is that box of candy? I always eat candy during the matches." The first bout wa= midgets It was strictly a comedy act ooe oi I he midgets being billed as The Vtidget Milo. He wore a rrms- ache that looked bigger than VLilo's. The other midget pulled t off, as it was only pasted on, The next bout was between two light heavyweights who were clean and fast Dawn told me that they were college graduates, one being a lawyer and he other an engineer. She also went on talking about the stunts he had figured out for Milo, like him flying to the other cities in which he wrestled. The plane was their own, which saved pay- ng money to the railroad companies or airlines. She said rt was painted bright red, too and was named The Mighty Milo. * * * T HE semifinals were also fast and scientific, one of whom I recognized as a fellow who bad trained with me in the Army, l like to keep the early bouts clean when Milo wrestles, as a contrast to the mayhem of the final, Dawn explained, "My big trouble is getting opponents for him, as a man who has never lost a match is not one that the big names want to tangle. with. I almost dreaded the finals to come, as I knew what a sensitive fellow Milo was when the fans laughed at him, so I could imagine what he must feel luce when they booed and jeered, the way I saw them do oo television. When I said something K> Dawn about the wife and the kid watching, she said: "I thought of the same thing, Honeyboy, and have already told the announcer to have you take a bow. There's quite a long wait whDe the ring is being prepared for Mile's entrance, and the announcer fills in by giving folks bows and announcing next week's card.
