THE REFUGEE HERO

Again, when Mary Adrian departs from writing about nature, the result is generally unsuccessful. Life is difficult for Otto, a young refugee schoolboy, because Dave Tyler, a classmate whose father is influential in town, plagues him. In a farfetched bit of derring-do, when the classroom teacher submits Otto's composition in a contest but omits Dave's, Mr. Tyler puts her position in jeopardy and Otto comes to her rescue with help from a senator. Too conscientious to be interesting, Otto isn't a particularly engaging hero.
