Bernie Magruder and the Parachute Peril
The sign in the parachute factory reads: ". . . to insure that every parachute will open, each of our employees knows that at any time, an inspector may require him to jump from a plane in the parachute he has just completed".
Bernie Magruder does not think this will ever apply to his sister Delores, who works at the factory. What Bernie wants is for Delores to marry, leave home, and give her nice, large bedroom to him. So he and his friends create a romance between Delores and Dwayne Hopper, who also works at the factory.
There are puzzling questions about Dwayne, however, and also about a strange building going up in a nearby town. But as Bernie investigates, it proves, as his dad says, that "Magruders welcome challenge, thrive on change, seek out the difficult, go where angels fear to tread, feed a fever, and starve a cold". The results are nationwide publicity for Delores, tense moments for the Magruder family, and a wonderfully funny story for Bessledorf readers.
