                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I like to think of myself as a pretty decent fellow, I know the Punny Animals
think I am a pervert or something, but after all the beating up I have done to them,
they deserve a nasty opinion.  I guess.  Actually, I am named after an old, old
nickname from Division II Akron--the Golden Flash.  I think they are now called the
Zips.  I like Golden Flash better.
     This is my second stint as Duelmaster.  I beat Black Indekker both times for the
crown.  I have an affinity for Black Indekker, I think.  (The boss was a process
engineer for Black And Decker--Fayetteville, NC plant in the 1972-73 time frame.)
     Nothing else to add.  Good luck at The Chicago Face.  Looks like it will be a
bigger than normal crowd!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome WILLAF.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  WILLAF watched 
with glee as BLOOD ON THE TRACKS got knocked off top spot by GOLDEN GLADIATORS!  
What's with AUDREY HEPBURN?  She actually beat BLOOD ON THE TRACKS' HOMEMADE DRESS, 
and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at CHUCKS' 
PINUPS while they watched GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA clobber GOLDEN GLOVES.  He lost 7 points 
and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure WILLAF is excited 
about JACK OF HEARTS, the new Duelmaster from BLOOD ON THE TRACKS.  (remember?)  But 
when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, AIMER'S INC!  
In my day, no team with a 47-50-2 would scare me off!  What's the problem, GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
WILLAF is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
