FOURTH DOWN

Johnny Sloan, great college back, gets involved with a professional gambler, and after Dayton University loses its last big game, the finger of suspicion points at him. His resignation is demanded, he leaves town and loses his identity as a truck driver in New York, trying to forget. Then a flying tackle of a runaway thief brings him into the limelight and he gets an offer from a pro team. Now comes the best part of the story as he overcomes not only professional jealousy but the suspicion inherited from Dayton. In the end his name is cleared and all is well. Holds the interest up to the last long run and a touchdown. Good inside picture of professional football.
