THE FIX FAILS AT CUSTER

Scandal was narrowly averted last week—almost every night last week in fact—when the full truth about Ray Blent, star basketballer at Custer College, emerged at last. The academic and sporting worlds seemed due for an ugly shock when Ray, a straight A student badly in need of cash, flunked into ineligibility on the eve of the game with Ashmore. Gamblers' money was at the root of it, said the D.A.—though Custer students were more inclined to blame a stiff-necked ethics professor.

Thanks, however, to the fine school spirit of Playwrights Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, Custer won anyway at the final curtain of the latest Lindsay-Crouse play, a dandy piece of fun called Tall Story now making ready for Broadway.

Shocked at being alone "in our bare legs" with his cheerleader girl friend in the coach's office, young Blent (Robert Elston) tries to lose himself in wall.

Hot money thrust into his overcoat pocket by persons unknown sets Ray to pondering.

Boy and girl (Nina Wilcox) dream together of future bliss in a trailer built for two.

Intransigent and incorruptible, the ethics prof (Hans Conreid) is dragged in handcuffs before president (Robert Wright) and science professor (Marc Connelly).
