STRIKEOUT STORY

An American success story in terms men and boys will appreciate -- from send let to Big League. Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians tells his own story of how an farm boy become a great pitcher. He tells it in story form, recapturing his own memories of boyhood, of his father's training, of pitching as a send-pro for a time, then -at 17- being ""bought"" by the Indians; of ten years of the American League and almost four years in the Navy. There's a good deal of inside stuff on the political side of a ball club -- but throughout you never lose the boy and the man. He tells of his romance and marriage -- the ""best contrast he ever made"".
