Af- ter college, he turned pro with Chicago Bears and played near- ly ten years of braising- profes- sional rugby. He took up wrestling in 1933 and his "flying tackle" brought a new to the mat game. He won the world's heavyweight champion- ship in 1937 and lost it the follow- ing year. Broncho has been out of action the past four years but is getting into trim again. Sis feet two. he weighs 237 pounds and looks in great condi- tion. BJs features are a bit mat- burned but not badly mauled and his ears still look human. He has plenty of hair and a set of bushy eye-brows which mat viilains are alwavs ai-ternming to remove. _ I asked him what he was going to do when his mat days were over. Broncho just shrugged his shoul- ders. fiddled with his belt and said he jusc hadn't figured that out. Would he coach, I asked. Well, no, he didn't like the coaching game. "Too many he explained.

No, it's too big a much mental strain. It's a little easier if you're coaching a pro team they are little more mature and know what it's about, but I don't Thiny coaching job is for me."
