You Can't Beat Hubbard's 1-TON Air Conditioner Latest Model $*){\f\95 Save $100 - £77 Hubbard & Son Furniture THE STORY: Fred Ansbach is Well on his way toward becoming a profe.«i.«i>oiial wrestler after k.ivins; won his first match at a burlesque theater. Milo, Fred's instructor. won his match, hnt tossed his opponent into the fiddle at»d had to pay for it. XVI jT>UT to get back to Betty Jane. ' As I started : to say, the Mar- imoa had spoiled her for her folks' sofa, so the next time Milo came in to the supermarket I had jit out with him. instead of wear- ling his black waiter's pants and •turtle-neck sweater, he was in la blue suit with white stripes irunning up and down, and a (collar and a red tie. The suit i"wasn't the color of blue that I would have picked OUT and the tie was an even brighter red than ,'the Marmon, if that was possible, ifcut what looked really funny was the collar, because of Milo's peck being so much bigger than !his head. Besides, he was sweat- iing just the same as always and the collar didn't absorb the way the sweater did. "Milo get new suit," he says. Ted like?" "That Dawn dame is ruining Greece's gift to America," I said, making it as sarcastic as I could, •while I put his apples and bananas in bags and marked the price on them. One thing, the supermarket had just put in new scales and had started to sell everything by the pound, so I was saved a lot of headaches figuring out what things cost Milo looked awful sad. "Is true. Fed. Last night Herman almost thow Milo. No can help. Milo in love terr'ble." "You mean you weren't using the Marmon last night?" I asked, thinking of the lost opportunity. ''You not know. Fed? Milo no tell show go Balt'more? All mens in Balt'more see Dawn. Milo no see." • * • 1TE went on like this *ntfl I could see the manager getting ^B ^^Ktt v^0tt A Jfit driL customers waiting, so> I said, "What about the car?" "No want car till Sat'day, Fed. Milo drive Balt'more see Dawn." "Okay," I said, thinking that half a loaf was better than no car. "I'll see you at the Y." The poor guy was practically | crying, right there in the super- i market. "No, Fed. no can. Milo heart busted, me." he says. That night we took a long drive in the country, and parked by some woods where we had stopped once or twice before Finally I said, "Betty Jane, we've been wrestling for a long time now according to amateur rules. I think it's about time we turned professional." "Why, Freddie," she says, her voice all choked up with feeling —she being one person I didn't mind calling me 'Freddie'—"I do believe you are proposing marriage to me." We had been having quite a long workout and I was warm from exertion, but suddenly Betty Jane Blane was as cool as a pickle. I was pretty nervous, wondering whether she'd say yes or no. "Of course I am," I came right back. "This one fall to a finish and no time limit is wearing me out. I want to pin a hold on you that will last through infinity," which was sort of poetic, I thought "You must face some realities. You have wasted practically a year at that supermarket" "You can say that again," I agreed. "There wasn't much I could do about it though, while I've been waiting for a bid somewhere." "Freddie, I don't want to hurt your feelings, but there is just the trouble. You've been waiting for coaches to come to you and by this time you should realize that they're not going to. After this summer, there will be a whole new crop of star players the whole system of college football is dishonest and bad for the morals." Mind, all this from Betty Jane, who up until this moment had never shown the first sign of a brain, unless maybe when she broke off with that tennis player. She was right and I knew it, so I let it stand, but like all women, she had to add injury to insult, and went right on. "Besides, there is this wrestling. Everybody knows wrestlers are a lot of bums whose matches are fixed. Look at that Milo!" I tried not to act burned up. "What about him? Do you know that this very automobile in which you are sitting — " "You didn't think I thought it was yours? On what you make at the supermarket? No, Fred Anspach. When I look back to high-school days I think of cheering you in basketball or rooting for you at baseball or something. There must be plenty of basketball teams that pay their players honestly instead of pretending that they are amateurs when they're not — or aren't there?" aren't, Betty Jane. Basketball is a strictly amateur sport in which if you are caught taking money honestly you are all washed up.' "Baseball, then?" "Fellows that can play baseball better than me are a dime a dozen," I said, out of all modesty. "Besides, there's no dough in collegiate baseball Whoever heard of 50,000 fans packing any stadium to watch Yale and Harvard play baseball?" I was going oo to explain that people don't like to pay out real moner to watch something that doesn't have at least a fair chance of being crooked, but Betty Jane cut in oo me. "Okay, I believe you. The way I see it, the only thing left is to go ovt and get yourself a job." "You think I don't work at the supermarket?" She passed that up. "Have you ever thought ot going to college for an education and not for MB athletic career?" 18*0 Main T. -M. R«. U. S. P»L <W. „ „ Ceor. 195* j, r NEA S.rvi«. Inc.. 7'^?
