New York: Simon & Schuster, 1960. First Edition. Octavo. 224p. Illustrated by Mel Bolden. While his experiences as a Marine in World War II are among the best accounts of the era, he also wrote books aimed at the juvenile audience. Writing under the pseudonym, Mark Porter, he writes this account of a young teenagers who had a chance to enter the State Junior Tennis Championship but he had to work a regular job until an old friend and coach arranged for him to have a job at the public tennis courts so he could continue his dream. For all the author's views of the horrors of war, his books written for young people show his dream of what kids might enjoy in a world without war.
