Wiley of West Point concludes after only three more chapters. Wiley’s court-martial is overturned after he is exonerated by the Lubanians, and he faces off against Baxter in the boxing championship. Betty arrives to see him victorious, but at the party afterwards she runs into Sylvia King, who Wiley has been seeing since his arrival at West Point.
At the conclusion, Betty has been dancing and flirting with another cadet, Sneed, while Wiley makes a super lame explanation to Sylvia about his past relationship with Betty. I kind of hope that Sylvia took his explanation at face value and went back to dating Baxter, while Betty found true love with Sneed and two-timing Wiley was left on his own.
But then, a few months down the road, Wiley would have been shipped out to battle in World War 2, so maybe I don’t wish him all bad luck.
Wiley of West Point: All-American 10 – 12 (Jan – Mar 40)
