Description:

From the dustjacket: The exuberant prep school boys of Lawrenceville School are the center of this story. When Tennessee Shad and Doc Macnooder combine their talents in a partnership, the entire school becomes their prey. How the two young demons separate their friends from their money to form a Criminal Club whose members lock step into chapel with shaven heads; how they sell the mumps for German measles; promote a dogfight in the woods and a match between two feather-weights in the baseball cage—and profit handsomely thereby—are tributes to the ingenuity and financial acumen of the firm of Shad and Macnooder. Under the direction of these resourceful entrepreneurs, the whole school decides to educate the Beefsteak, the spoiled sixteen-year-old sport of Fifth Avenue and Broadway. After being subjected to a unique course of discipline he finally admits he is "done to a crisp"—worthy to be accepted by the elite! [Suggest a different description.]
