Fighters Should Be Hungry Chapter One A brutal blow in the ribs jerked Tandy Moore from a sound sleep. Gasping, he rolled into a fetal position and looked up to see a brakeman standing over him with his foot drawn back for another kick. With a lunge Tandy was on his feet, his dark eyes blazing. Fists cocked, he started for the brakeman, who backed suddenly away. "Unload!" he said harshly. "Get off! An'' be quick about it!" Tandy was a big young man with wide shoulders and a sun-darkened face, darkened still further by a stubble of black beard. He chucked with cold humor. "Nope," Tandy said grimly, and with relish. "If you want me off, you put me off! Come on, I''m going to like this!" Instead of a meek and frightened tramp, the brakeman had uncovered a wolf with bared teeth. The brakeman backed away still farther. "You get off!" he insisted. "If that bull down to the yards finds you here, he''ll report it an'' I''ll get chewed out!" Tandy Moore relaxed a bit. "You watch yourself, mister! You can lose teeth walkin'' up an'' kickin'' a guy that way!" He grabbed the edge of the gondola and lifted himself to the top, then swung his feet over to the ladder. "Say, Jack? What town is this anyway? Not that it makes much difference." "Astoria, Oregon. End of the line." "Thanks." Tandy climbed down the ladder, gauged the speed of the train, and dropped off, hitting the cinders on the run
