Offers of wagers to that effect were greedily snapped up by two other boys at the creamery., Along came Duquesne and defeated Pitt early in the season. Seeley admitted defeat, the boys collected on the outlandish odds and the Incident was forgotten. Now that Pitt has been selected the boys want to know what to do. Shall Ken be paid as originally promised or he be the loser? Round and round they go, and get nowhere. Henry Ouderlan's service to the mail route customers is reason of a short story.
