KIRKUS REVIEW

Short on height, long on will-to-win, Wendell Cooper, 17, of Pioneer, Michigan, showed his mettle on the basketball court and proved that he was big enough man to be captain of the baseball team. ""Shorty"" Cooper proves that height doesn't indicate honor when he discovers that six-feet-plus, Red Russell, a teammate on the Midwestern University basketball team, played pro basketball for a factory team. For non-sports-minded readers ""Shorty's"" activities as a campus journalist will be of interest.
