The story begins in the emergency room in Corinth Hospital in 1967 where a slightly wounded professor is brought in by a friend. The local reporter tries to flesh out the story, but his editor kills it, and all that is clear is that there was some sort of duel. It introduces the three main mail characters, John Dobrov, Turner Ashby DeLay, and Charley Steinke.

The football player sherescues, remakes, and marries is John Dobrov, a man's man of Czech background from Youngstown, Ohio. He regards his wife with awe, and is uttterly dominated by her in all areas until he meets a colleague, Turner Ashby DeLay, who is equal to his wife in intelligence, but has an entire
