KEN TOMPKINS, ANIMAL DOCTOR

Another in Dodd Mead's series of career books for older boys takes Ken and a melodramatic set of problems through four years of veterinary medicine at Pennington A. & M. Through his studies, summer jobs (one with a circus), and local agricultural interests, interested readers should find pertinent information on the care and health of farm animals as the emphasis is especially on this. But the emotional elements, superimposed upon the studies, indulge Ken's agonies- about his father's disappointment that he did not become an M.D., over a theft at school that almost coats Ken his own degree and so forth- that makes this more of a study in sentiment than veterinary medicine.
