U 69 BlYTHEP" c n'PRw*RKFT Main St. Wholesale or Retail XXXV T^HEY rolled this red velvet •^ carpet down the aisle while other fellows put up a set oi steps made out of aluminum or •something. They went over the jrope and down on the other side. jl was so interested in what they jwere doing that it wasn't until (Dawn nudged me that I realized (what the announcer was saying. i"We have the good fortune to (have with us tonight the one and only pupil of The Mighty Milo, none other than Honeyboy Hac- kenschmidt, who has recently put aside the uniform of Uncle Sam. in which he appeared in exhibition bouts all over the world and in many other places." It was a real good introduction. Dawn whispered to me that she had written it herself. I got by her and walked up the aisle real light and gauntly, but instead of using . Milo's special steps, I slipped through the ropes. When I got back to my seat next to Dawn, she said, "Honey- boy, as an actor you are a terrific man," or something like that. Then the announcer said, "The last and final bout of the evening brings up The Mighty Milo, wrestling at 232 pounds." As he finished, a fellow came down the aisle on the red carpet, and went up and down the steps over the ropes. He was dressed in red and carried a kind of overnight case of red leather. He took his place by the side of * very big chair that had been put in a corner of the ring. Then it struck me who he was—none other than the fellow I always suspected pulled the light switch that night years before when Milo and me wrestled for the Odd Fellows. Suddenly there was a terrific noise of Bronx cheers and boos, which I realized couldn't be coming from anybody, because .hey were sitting there quiet, and Dftwn explained that wb* 1 heard were records to set off the crowd to booing, as Milo came down the aisle. His walk was the same funny walk he always had, but it was covered up by a red velvet robe that reached to the carpet and blended right in with it His mustache seemed to have grown since I saw it, before dinner. He climbed the steps up to the apron, then turned and looked around as though he was the kingdom of all he surveyed. By this time, people were shouting that his versus would pull his mustache right out of his face. I thought Milo's feelings would be hurt, but he appeared to be enjoying himself. The fellow standing by his ch^r made a deep bow and took off the red velvet robe. There was the Milo I knew, the same except for the mustache. He sweated the same, for one thing—you could see the mat getting wet—ind he still looked fat What was different was that I didn't hear anyone laugh. Then the announcer said, "The Mighty Milo, undefeated in 15 years of wrestling, wishes to make the following challenge to Frank Sexton, Lou Thez, and anybody else who calls himself the heavyweifht champion of the world: The Mighty Milo will meet, not one, not two, but any three of those gentlemen at one and the selfsame time and throw all three of them within a time limit of one hour, or forfeit a purse of $5000 to each and every opponent" F)AWN explained to me the announcer had been a circus barker, which was why he had such a historic voice. "He i* one of the best investments w« «vtr made," she said. Milo was nodding his head to the crowd but there was a roar of jeers that only ended when Vlilo's opponent entered the ring. At WM wMuinf a oewbor including boots and a big hat which he proceeded to shuck ofl while he sang "Home on thi Range," for which he got a terrific hand. He was announced ajs Pecos Pat O'Ryan, at 26! pounds, but Dawn told me thai he was really from her homi town of Scranton, and was a personal discovery of hers. "He and Milo have wrestled togethei about 20 bouts around the circuit." "You mean it's faked?" I asked, "You have been away • from wrestling so long that you forget the fall is not faked. In fact. Pat is getting better all the time, through wrestling with Milo, and I am afraid for my life that someday he may accidentally pin Milo." This Pat was a good-looking fellow, with curly hair, like min«, except that he was fair. He looked about six feet two, a good height for his weight, which almost put him in the meat das*. * * * A FTER they had began to wrestle, I was surprised how long Pat stayed with Milo, who used to dispose of his adversaries in nothing flat. After 15 minutes I began to think that tnayt* Dawn's worst fears were about to be realized, but just then she whispered to me that Milo would be going to work in a minute, M she had conned him into believing that he should give his versus time to prove that his best wasn't good enough, aft«r which Milo could throw him. The crowd was yelling its head oft for Pat to pull out Milo's mustache, which the crowd likei to see done as it is against th« rules and illegal besides. Pat ia a clean wrestler, though, and it buiWing his reputation on being scientific and having such a good voice, besides his cowboy outfit. Then it was over, like Dawn said it would be. Milo got a crotch and arm lift, which was always a favorite combination with him, and the cowboy is laid down a* only a master could d« it, because with a fellow as big as Pat it was a mean feat to pick him off his feet and whirl him around on the shoulders the way Mile did. 41• • EXPERT WATER PUMP REPAIR Hubbord Hardware Phone 2-2115 .
