THE BOY NEXT DOOR

Healthy boy-girl fare by a practiced hand also interjects the theme of hot rodding and solves some mild social problems. Friends since childhood, Jane Howard and Ken Sanderson can look forward to an increasingly happy relationship in their last years of high school, but there are the beginnings of trouble when Ken's love of engines bears fruit in the purchase of a car, an old Cadillac, for $300. Conscientious as he is about caring for it and driving it safely, Ken's enthusiasm gets him into hot water and there is the inevitable accident and a quarrel with Jane. But Jane, who is a very level-headed girl, steps in to repair matters with a suggestion for an organized Road Runners club, an idea that goes over with everyone. Light.
