KIRKUS REVIEW

Entertaining moments with young love and baseball. Vernon, research fellow in chemistry, has only one experiment left before securing the coveted professorship. And he hopes- the president's daughter. Except for the unaccountable trances that come over him at the baseball season, he is an admirable husband-to-be. His experiment -- a chemical repelled by wood- gives him his great idea. He leaves college for St. Louis and the ball team, and proves- with his experiment- that he can pitch a ball with a cockeyed hop no bat can hit. As ""King Kelly"", Vernon sets a record for strikeouts (and walks), is the sensation of the season, wins the series for St. Louis and returns to the College and Debbie, successful, and solvent...Not just a scenario synopsis (the picture is on the point of release), but fresh fetching entertainment.
