Latest aspirant for admission to the class of 1939 is Nellie Twadzik of Webster, crack first baseman on the local Barlett High School ball team. Interviewed recently, as she sat huddled on the bench with her male associates, Nellie asserted she was "taking a business course. I'd like to play ball, but what are you going to do about a thing like that." Even if some philanthropist obligingly offers to pay her expenses through college, she insists it be Harvard or Yale plus a chance to try out for the team.
Nellie admits "it's still a man's world, but if you happen to be a lady with a talent for swinging the bat, what are you going to do about it."
