Letters Column: The Spider's Web

When Peter Parker is shooting pictures at a football game, he unexpectedly bumps into a former student, whose brother just happens to be the star player for the Mammoths. But when the Mammoths lose, it is revealed that the player is on the payroll of the Rose, a new figure in the underworld. Things go from bad to worse when the player decides he will no longer work for the Rose, and things go bad for Peter as well when he finally decides to let Aunt May know he has left college!
