DittriWNrf H MCA fcrrto XIX W/TE had been away a lot longer than we intended, and when we got back to the theater the show was over and everybody was gone except the man at the I door and Milo. He sure looked j dejected. "Milo know only want to get him out way," he says. "No park half hour where Is car. Is two ; hour." , I was nonplussed, and more on (the plus side, but Dawn said, "Why. you dear old dope. Don't t«ll me you're jealous! Good lookin' and me have been tryin to get you out of this molasse deal. Honest"—and she use some terra that must of bee Greek, because it was sure Gree to me—"I wouldn't have got yo into it if I'd known." "M'lasse*? New way rassle? Milo asks, and we both realiz that he is still strictly not Wise to what he has been matched for but Dawn uses it to his advan tage. : 'Didn't my old man used to tell me about how three-four fellows used to wrestle together In Greece, in the old days?" Milo's face brightened up, unti lie no longer looked suspipiously at me. "Milo see pictures store windows. Te'bble Greek me. In Ingiish is rassle royal. No wor- •y. Milo th'ow other fellows. Is m'lasses Milo no understand. "It's to keep you from slip- iing," Dawn said, which was only kind of white lie, as maybe it would, at that. The arena was sort of small, so e dressing rooms were under e cheap seats at the back »nd hey weren't very big, either. As this was to be my first atch in a regular ring, with the •customers sitting on all four isides, instead of just out in front jlike at the theater, I was feeling it little nervous, which was why the ugliest human being I have ever seen. He had a flat nose, and his ears had the biggest flowers on them I've ever seen. I didn't notice then that he also had a cross eye. All I saw was those two bumps that stood out like knobs on each side of his face. Right then I determined on my strategy, which was to work for head locks, as with ears like those, if you got a hold, nothing in the world could make it slip off. 1 I started changing a little early. IB cotn«t a man who wat about JJE said, "Hello. I guess you're Hackenschmidt. The name is Lopez." He had a soft, quiet voice. With no accent that I could tell. He wasn't very dark, either, so I wondered if he wasn't really Italian or Greek or something that was practically not foreign at all, and if this Mexican stuff was just a buildup. "I thought you were supposed to be Mexican," I said. "Sure. Born ki Juarez. Ain't been there in years," he answered, starting to get undressed. His skin wasn't much browner than mine and I noticed that he didn't have any' muscles that stood out, but was real smooth all over, which was what Milo had taught me to look out for because of that muscles-should- flow-like-river business he was always talking about. This Lopez had a way of walking that sort of flowed, too, while he took off his shirt and hung up his rousers. All the time he kept alking in this soft, easy voice of his, "This Benny Lefkoe is about s regular a promoter as I ever worked for. You can't do better nan get orrhis card here every week, and I hope you do." I said, "Thanks," and he went n. "I've built up quite a follow- ng here. It depends on me pre- ending to wrestle dirty, of ourse, but don't pay any atten- t» ttat, I'M pit* U» fell clean. 7 * He was so soft-spoken that I didn't know just how to answer, so I just said, "Sure," which I figured was about as committal as I could be. He slipped on a faded green bathrobe with a Mexican flag sewn on the back of it and watched me while I laced my shoes. "Fact is, think I'll bring tke wife and family down here from Hartford soon as I can find a house." It was hard to Imagine a fellow who was so ugly-looking having a wife and much less children, but I didn't have much time to think about it as the two preliminaries came in, after 'having wrestled to a draw for about the hundredth time together, as I learned later. What they had was really a tumbling act, but it was fast and spectacular and gave the crowd a good show. J^OPEZ was called, and h« slipped out with that easy way he had of walking. Ht grinned at me, real friendly, and waved his hand. In a moment I could hear a lot of boos and raspberries, after which the customers began to stamp on the floor of the stands overhead until I thought they'd all come down on top of us. They sure hated that Lopez. A fellow tapped me and I folio-red out to the ring, 'climbed through the ropes, and went to my corner. Everybody cheered and hurrayed except some guy with a voice that I could hear over all the rest, who keep* shouting, "You won't be so pretty when Lopez gets done with you." I saw Milo and Dawn sitting in the second row ringside and let them know by a faint smile, but I had made up my mind that a wrestler in the rinf is no movie idol and should behave like one. What I wasn't prepared for was the change in th* expression ot my versus. If he was ugly before, he now looked repulsive. He stripped oft his robe, made a bunch of'it. and practically threw it out of the ring, while the crowd called him namti too numerous to mention. <T« B* PAINTING And RE - MODELING Interior and Exterior AH kinds of floor work—Tile, Plastic Tile, Bathroom Tile General Contracting Extra Rooms, Car Ports, Breezeways.
