Fred cn« hardly wait to as* the car to tnk« B«tty .fane B!an<? riding:. Bnt meanwhile MJIo and H>r- ntnn hat-e take* «p work-ont» XTH TNSTEAD of seeing little Milo picking up Herman and slam- fming him on the mat, nice and liriendly-Uke, which was usually ithe case, there was Milo lying on Ibis belly and bawling, th« way be did the time he broke my nose by accident. Herman was trying to comfort him, and looks sad, too, which is unusual for him. "Why he cry?" Herman asked. "I try find out, but no can." I sure lost my patience, sometimes, working with two fellows who used such basic English, but like Mr. Dunkelberger had intimated, Herman was easier to understand than Milo. Herman went on to explain that if it was just wrestling before people that Milo wanted, there was somebody he knew through the, Turners, this German club to which he belonged, who managed a theater that put ,on wrestling matches during the kitermission. He thought that it would b« easy to get Milo tnd me on the bill, which was on !Monday nights, when otherwise ! it would be a slow eight «t the Bijou. When Herman mentioned the 'name of the theater, I knew right away that Pa and Ma would both raise heck if I wrestled there. 1 had never seen one of Hs shows, but I had heard about them from fellows who had. "The Bijou!" I says. "But that's a burlesque theater, where the girls take th«ir clothes off. Milo won't like it either, because he hates women, «ven when they have clothes on." But Milo said we didn't have to look at the girls. - 1 " 1 - promised. I kept my folks in line by not telling them, and I believe that Milo would have wrestled anywhere, just so people would see him. I had never been backstage in a theater before, and it was really exciting. Girls were still zippering up their clothes, men were smoking cigars and moving scenery at the same time. In the^back there wa« just a bare brick wall, with the mat faying in front of it, along with the posts and taped -up ropes. A character wearing a derby hat comes up to me. "You the other rassler tha-t Herman Glutz sent?" he asked. When I nodded, he said, "Werl. you look like a rasslcr, anyway, but I could drop » hammer on Herman's square head for fending me that grease ball." I'd learned to the supermarket to agree with your customer before you begin telling him he's wrong. '1 know," I said. "That's the impression he gives. Have you ever ae« Hermaa Glutz wrestle?" "Sure, he teaches it M the Turners." "Will you believe me that the longest he has ever lasted with Milo is three minutes ajnd 4? seconds? I know, because I did ttM timing." This i* the manager of this place, I decided, and at least I've part way «old him. He reached back in a corner somewhere and took out a cigar butt that he had stached twty. "I don't know,** h« said. "But Herman it only •« amateur. I've got a good man for tonight. He's built up quite a reputation out at th* Arena M a tough article." Something was worrying me, I thought I might M well b« honest "This i* ih« first time I've ev*r wrestled in a place lik« thu, but it seems to me UM mat is awful far from the people in the show." "That's on dollies, ready to b* rolled in front of the curtain." He went on explaining in a lot oi stage terms that I didn't understand much about, and ended up, "This is a theater, which is show business, and show business is something for the customers to see, not two guys going to sleep on a mat. Besides, the audience in the orchestra pays a buck and a half. Maybe the 75-cent balcony can see two guys playing footsie on the floor, but the buck- and-a-half guys can't, so keep on your feet" I could see that he understood very little about the fine points of wrestling, one of which is that one of the opponents has to have both shoulders pinned to the mat to lose, which it would be very hard to do standing up. A/T • ILO didn't want to get wn- dressed because h« wat afraid tome of the girls would see him. The girls were running back and forward with practically nothing on themselves, but that's the way Milo was, modest. There were a*i awlul lot of those wotneo and some erf them were real nke-looking. especially one who reminded me a lot of Betty Jane Blane except that thii girl was taller and had red hair. She was prettier, too, but then, I could Me more of b«r Hum I could oi Betty Jane. Anyway, we were no mor* than ready, Mito with bis blu* satin rob* «o *nd me with th« purple one that be had bought lor me, when in come the tw* fellows we are going to have to wrestle. The one ki front is tough all right. He has flowers oo both ear*, one of them still puffed up and blue, and a flat nose. He takot a look at Milo, and »ays to the other fellow, "I* this what I'm supposed to wrestle? Can H talk or doec it only grunt?** Milo only got the fist of what he was saying, or there might have b«*n trouble. The other fellow I could MM at one glance wat an aid man who anuft h«v* dose to *fl. (T* ftt C«allM*«) IF YOU DON'T KNOW, LOOK IT UP IN THE DICTIONARY H. EL (Buddy; Howard Post No. 4 E. C.
