Phone 2-2071 XXXVI Milo was dressing, Dawn invited me to sit <3own on the sofa in their apartment "Well, what do you rthink?" she asked. "Is it to be insurance, or -where your heart •really lays?" "If you put it that way, there iis only one answer, so far as I jam concerned, but there is Betty Jane and my solemn promise." "Why don't you call her up? [Now look, Honeyboy, my womanly intuition tells me that she ididn't send you all the way out [here, especially when insurance jisn't so hot, unless she was giving with some ideas such as only women can give with. She has imet her Frankenstein and wants (to go on living with it. Well, iHoneyboy, it is even visible to wie that you are no insurance •salesman, and if I know your (Betty Jane, it is visible to her 'twice over, which it would b« to *ny woman. But that is women dfor you—always wanting to make •over the men they marry. Me iputting mustaches on Milo and your wife trying to make you iinto a salesman. But with wom- i*n, we know when we are buckling the wrong horse." "You mean you made a mistake too?" I asked. "You should have them mus- ftaches goring you," she came back, for which I had no answer. "I'll put through a call," she went on. "And while we are waiting let me tell you what you are to say. First of all, don't mention me, but say that Milo has offered you $300 for a bout here next week. That's more than the spot calls*for, but money talks awful loud to women who are wondering where the next payment is coming from. Strictly on a business basis 1 wouldn't do it, out you can also nave the tiurd-floor Apollo Restaurant m Cleveland to live in, rent free." I objected, "But you said you wanted me near Milo." "Isn't Cleveland near?" she wants to know. "Why, you can run over in the plane any time. Besides which, it is vacant." She dialed the operator while she went on talking to me. "Thirdly," she began, and I realized how alike she and Betty Jane were, except she used figures, and Betty Jane goes into alphabets, but they add up just the same. "Thirdly, if she brings up any arguments, which she may, but solely for effect, tell her that wrestlers are not like boxers—nobody ever needs to hold benefits for them." Well, suddenly there was Betty Jane at the other end of the line, and Frederika shouting, "Hello, Daddy, you could of thrown the both of them." * * • T KNEW she didn't mean Milo, but the two fellows who wrestled before I took my bow. I said, "Did you and Ma realize that when I was looking in the TV it was right at you?" "We sure did," she screamed. "Could you hear when I gave Milo the royal raspberry?" I realized then that Frederika did not understand the principles of television and it is strictly a one- way proposition and not like tht telephone, but Betty Jane was on with again. "You have a nice visit Milo?" she asked. "I am her* in his palatial apartment right now." "Give him my love," she said, just like that. "He owns a piece of most oi the places he wrestles in. Also » two-motor, eight-pasienger plane and * limousine." "I am glad to hear he is doing so well. It is too bad you save up wrestling as we might at least toabteto TV set." There was a bitter sound in her voice, which I couldn't figure, as she was the one who had made me give a solemn promise, but I have found that with women it is better to go along with their way of think- ng without pointing out certain facts, especially when they are in the wrong. "Milo has made me a proposition, which I feel duty-bound to tell you about, although I have already toid him that you will not agree." "Why, dearest, I do not see how you can say that. You are practically accusing me of trying to stand in your way, which I wouldn't for the world. What is the proposition?" I didn't think myself that I could do such a good job of diplomacy, but it shows how you learn just by living. ' "THERE is an open spot on next week's bill, which he can put me in. It won't pay very well as it is only a preliminary; because Milo thinks I would have to get back into competition slowly, if you should be willing." "How much will it pay." I knew by her voice she was get^ ting interested. "Three hundred dollars, and I could wrestle two-three times a week, once I got back in harness. Besides, Milo has a five-room apartment over one of his restaurants that I can have free." "It is strictly a decision you will have to make for yourself," she started, in the way she does when she is getting ready to say "Let's be reasonable" next, but she couldn't get that far without busting out. "Darling what will we do with all the money?" Which proves I had done a good selling job on her and I wouldn't have to bother any more with little flbs about Mr. ZtiftniuM'i policy. Well, the rest is history, ai everybody knows—tvec the folka who don't follow us, because they havt kids who do. There is on* thing about watching either Milo or me over TV—both of us appeal ; to the elephantile mind, which [new forget*.
