A» * re- •uU Mil* hi driving a height r*4 mew cnx. * * * XII ALL I could think about was •** Betty Jane Blane seeing me drive with some other girl sitting next to me, real close. "Whose is it?" I asked, petting the upholstery. Milo smiled. "Milo buy. Pay down payment. SMoney make Odd Fall'." He went ion to explain that his Greek ifriends were all stooges, who had used his money to bet on me with. It just went to show how •smart Milo was. "Is yours, any time you want .use." Milo said. "But promise no <for take womans. Bad for rassle. JIs better for go in country, for iwatch clouds, like sheep in sky." It was pretty-swell of him to -offer me the car whenever I •wanted to use it and I sure ap- '.preciated it, but I can hardly •imagine having an automobile /just to run out to the country in. -•'I've often wondered how fellows 'got along before there were cars. ; Imagine trying to date a girl on a bicycle! Well, it was done. I giiess, but never by me. I could just see the envious look on Betty -;Jane Blane's face while she stood ;on a street corner with that ten- i:nis player, and I went by in the • Marmon, with the cutout open. ' I couW have forgiven her for dating a fellow who wasn't an • ; athlete, but a tennis player wa« too much. Anyway, like my diet, where I ate what Milo said during the '. day and raided the icebox before :i went to bed, what Milo didn't know wouldn't hurt me, at proved by the way I wai ukinf fon weight, which i* very important to a wrestler And I could understand why Milo dis- ways laughed when they saw him for the first time. Things worked out pretty well, especially because of the friendship that struck up between Milo and Herman Glutz, whom Milo threw that night at the Odd Fellows. Herman was t square-head and not an egg-head, and he had little blue eyes that were laughing all the time, where Milo had big, sad brown ones. Otherwise, in build, they were identical, except Herman's legs were longer. As a student of psychology who almost made a passing grade in a difficult subject, I say that those eight inches were the difference between success and failure. Whoever hears of Herman Glutz now? • * • TTERMAN had taken it as a big •"•^ joke when Milo threw him, and started to come to the Y for a workout, instead of with Jakt Stumpfig, at the Turners, as he used to, claiming that Milo gave him better practice, which wis true, of course. It meant that I didn't get to wrestle with Milo as much as I had, but I was willing to make the sacrifice, as those nights were ideal for borrowing the Marmon roadster and having my workout with Betty Jane Blanc. She h»d made explanation* »bout the tennis player which I accepted as satisfactory, and I must say that sh« was never floored by a new hold. But to ftt'back to Milo and Herman. They were both too heavy for me to do more than give them * workout, but when they wrestled together, Milo always threw Herman. Sometime* he did it one way, sometimes another, but th« end was foreordained. I always thought that Mite wen b«ctus* h« n«vtr thought it was possible that be could loi«. Herman never got sore or anything. After Miio would throw jat HP Iro0 taw mat and laugh his fool head oft at the idea of anyone as short as Milo picking him up and setting him down with so little trouble. Strength for strength, I do not believe thftr* was anything to choose b«twe«n them, but Milo in his gabbled English used to explain that Herman'* trouble came out of his diet According to this old guy who had taught Milo. the strongest animals in the world were those who never ate animaf meat. Milo said that the most dangerous animal in the world, which tigers feared, as well as humans who had no guns, was some kind of buffalo that he'd seen when he was a sailor. What did it live on? Grass. Elephants lived OB vegetation and so did big bulls, which could move plenty fast. Bears, one of the strongest animals there was, lived on stuff like honey and insects they picked from under rocks, or fish, in the case of polar bears, which didn't altogether support Milo's contentions. * • • TTE did say that the animals -*" 1 " who ate meat, like tigers and lions, went to sleep afterward, and that was what was wrong with, Herman, who wa« half asleep most of the time. Somehow, Milo thought that all th« promoters would start making a path to his door after the Odd Fellows bouts, which were duly written up in the papers, and when nothing happened he began to fe«l despondent. I would havt settled on b«ing able to make a down payment on a Marmon and hop« to keep up what was due monthly, but not Milo. He was so discouraged h* didn't even want to go out in the car, and I drove it so much that a lot of people began to think that it belonged to mt, which I never denied, exactly. One night I parked the Marmon in front of the Y and went up to the lobby. Mr. Dunkel- b*rf«r, my ex-Sunday school teacher, said, "Good evening, Freddie. Thote two geriilas you consort with are down in the gym. The one that speaks a little English asked for you.
