When Fred proposes. Bettj taftiftt* that l»e go to college. XVII TT was a new idea, and coming from Betty Jane Blane, I hardly knew what to say, but as it turned out I didn't need to say anything, as she went right on talking. "Before I even so much as consider your offer." she says, "you have to promise me three things: A, that you leave that old supermarket; B, that you begin to prepare yourself to support a family; and C, that you stop going around with that awful-looking Greek. 1 * I may not remember her words exactly, but I sure do remember the A, B, and C part. It was the first time I ever realized that she could be so determined, but even while she sat there reciting the alphabet I couldn't help but love her so much that I agreed to everything, although oxit of jus- tic* to Milo I did try to explain again that she had him all wrong and that underneath he was as sensitive as a baby, but it didn't change her expression, which was adamant, if I ever saw one. I've found out since that there is no use arguing with Betty Jane anyway, and except for what she said about Milo, the facts had me pinned to the mat the way Gus Sonnenberg was knocking them over then with his flying tackles, although they weren't Kood wrestling, as there is an unwritten law that wrestlers should keep their feet on the floor at all times they can. The way I saw it, Betty Jane and Gus Sonnenberg both acted in a manner that you are not taught to cope with, so you don't have any quick defense. R vrx rery easy to give v( working hi the supermarket, as i likely I *>** going to ge fired anyway. That's another story that I won't go into, which had to do with my diet I fol- owed it religiously, although I still helped it out with things xom home, like a piece of leftover roast beef or a few potatoes that didn't make any difference one way or another. Trouble began when the boss caught me trimming down to dime size some 15-cent heads of ettuce that I was buying for my diet—me not liking the outer eaves and they having to be cut off sometime anyway. I brought up to him the rotten bananas I'd n buying, which would of been thrown out otherwise, but all be, could talk about were those paltry wilted lettuce leaves, which I thought was pretty small. * • * ETTING fired was a whole lot easier than telling Milo that I :ouldn't work out with him anymore. Unfortunately, when I saw him at the Y that Friday I began by telling him that now I wasn't at the supermarket any more I still had to live until I got some softball college that was strictly academic in spite of the dopes that went to those place*. "Fed, no need worry," he came back. "My fend Dawn, get inatfb Baltimore for fend Fed." You can see for yourself how his English was improving. When I tried to explain how things really were, and that I was thinking about him, too, he said "MiJo, me, got match. Te'bble Greek, me." "Nothing doing," I said, still true to Betty Jane. "Didn't 1 already tell you I can't wrestle any more? You can't ask me to go back on my given word," Milo burst into tears. Honest he was the most sensitive man I ever met in my whole life up to that time, much less since. "Fed," he said, "womens no important like rassling." "That's okay when you talk about Betty Jane, you think. How about when it's Dawn ODay?" "Dawn want Milo rassle. Help Milo, me. Got fends in »cket ier on my sid« mat.** You notice that he didn't »e- ually say anything against Betty 'ane but only intimidated, so I had to do the same out of po- iteness, although there wa* roach I could have said about Dawn O'Day, who was a strip .ease in public, whereas Betty Tane only kept me on tender- looks, without ever doing any- hing radical, even in private. The upshot was that I let Milo ^ ahead and arrange this Baltimore match, figuring that I wa* seing honest with Betty Jane, as she would never know about tt, and if I could make $75. which is what Milo was getting paid, i* would help tide me over. VTILO drove all the way to Bal- L * i ttoore. which I didn't likt much, as he is a fellow who doesn't like any cars to b« ta front oi him. We went direct te the burlesque thtftUtr wher« Dawn O'Day was playing and I was struck all over again how different women look when they are dressed from when th«y aren't and how much better. I mean, for instance. Dawn O'Day looked wonderful wh*n she WM stripping, but no more wonderful than any of the other girls in the show, whereas when she met u«, right inside the stage fcntranct, she was really pretty. I n»d somewhere once about clothes making the man, but th«y m*kt the woman even roort, tf you follow me. Right now, when she ran up t* Milo and kissed him on the top of that shaved head of his, because she wa* too tall to get down to where his mouth was, 1 could see why he felt like he did about her. She seemed to likt him. too, for she hardly paid any attention to me at all. "Hello, handsome," was all she said to show that 1 was even present. I knew wh* she meant, of course, because sh« couldn't have meant Milo, Mrt flattery does not take th« plaot oi a nice look from a looker. T« Be WE BUY USED FURNITURE PHONE 3-3122 Wade Furn .Co.
