While Reggie is looking and telling Jughead that it isn't her, Jughead takes a bit of Reggie's ice cream cone, then asks if that's her by the bus. Reggie says no, that isn't her, and tells Jughead "Boy are you DUMB!". Jughead, having finished the ice cream, walks off wiping his mouth with a handkerchief and says "Not half as dumb as somebody I know!"

Genre:

Synopsis:
A two-page, 10-panel gag strip featuring various humorous "road signs" for teens: ball-and-shackles sign in a school hallway near a room ("detention room ahead"); a sign outside a house with a crab on it ("crabby neighbor lives here"); a sign inside someone's living room having a picture of a horse's head with a red circle around it and a line through it ("no horsing around in this house"); a sign outside Midge's house with a big fist on it ("Danger! I have a jealous boyfriend"); a sign outside a house picturing an ice cream sundae with a circle around it and a line through it ("occupant on a diet"); a sign in a school building picturing a black flag at half staff, right outside a classroom ("Algebra exam in progress"); Reggie standing next to a sign with a rooster on it ("Braggart lives here"); a sign outside of Moose's house with "SOS" on it ("Occupant would like to borrow money"); a sign outside a house with a large bag of money on it ("I just received my allowance") and a sign with a large frowny-face on it ("I just spent my allowance")

Indexer Notes

Although Moose and Midge are never mentioned, it is clear who they are. A girl who looks like Midge is in the house with the "jealous boyfriend" sign in the yard, and a guy who looks like Moose is in the house with the "SOS" sign in the yard.

The girls are in a classroom with "art class" on the door and notice that Reggie has taken up painting.

Genre:

Characters:
Jughead Jones; Reggie Mantle; Archie Andrews
Synopsis:
Archie, Reggie and Jughead are at the pool hall. Archie has apparently told Reggie that Jughead has the best touch in town, but Reggie doesn't seem to believe this. In the next two panels, Reggie makes some fancy shots, and Jughead compliments him on them, saying that the first shot is absolutely incredible, and telling Reggie that he's the greatest after the second shot. The 4th panel shows an outside shot of the building, with Jughead telling Reggie that his shots are unbelievable, and then immediately asks Reggie to lend him $5, which Reggie does. The last panel is back inside the pool hall with Jughead holding the $5, and Archie saying "Like I told you Reggie - Jug has the best shots in town!"

Indexer Notes

The best gag in this strip is the name of the pool hall - "Q Ball's Family Billiards and Pool"...

Indexer Notes

Numbered letters are on the side - circled letters with the number corresponding to each letter under the circle. The answer to the puzzle is "He not only reads the doctor's eye chart he even translates it!". First letter already filled in, and punctuation marks are drawn in the appropriate places.

Genre:

Characters:
Reggie Mantle; Karen (no last name given)
Synopsis:
Reggie is running for something (the story doesn't say what it is), and his friend Karen tells him that he's going to lose according to the straw poll. Reggie doesn't understand and says he's tried being friendly, tried being popular... Karen says there's one thing he hasn't tried - a little humility. The last panel shows two guys wearing "Reggie" hats (one of whom also has a "Vote Reggie" t-shirt on), carrying him on a cushioned, covered thing (not sure what the name of that thing is), with "REG" in giant letters on a nearby wall, "Get on the REGGIE bandwagon" on the side of the thing Reggie's riding on, large musical notes, a girl in a bikini wearing a "Reggie" sash and various campaign signs - "Vote Reggie Today!", "Reggie - cream of the crop" and "The Great Reggie".

Indexer Notes

This is more of a sight gag. The description should help explain it, but you really have to see this gag to fully appreciate it. The thing Reggie is riding on is exactly like what Roman emperors are often seen being carried on by slaves in the movies.

Genre:

Characters:
Reggie Mantle; Veronica Lodge; Betty Cooper; Archie Andrews; Jughead Jones (bottom gag only)
Synopsis:
In the top gag, Reggie, Veronica and Betty are at a "National Parks" costume party at the Lodge mansion. Betty says that she came as a mountie so she could always get her man. Veronica asks if they've seen Archie, because he apparently sat on one of her father's cigars and set his costume on fire. Betty says it isn't funny, but Veronica says it is if you've seen his costume. In the last panel, Archie, who is dressed in a singed Smokey the Bear costume, is seen sitting in the punch bowl. In the bottom gag, Jughead has invited Reggie, Betty, Veronica and Archie to dinner, apparently to repay them for all the meals he's sponged off of them. Betty looks at the menu - "cattail soup, cold kale in vinegar, wild mushroom surprise and onion pie". In the third panel, Archie is getting on his jacket to leave, and Jughead asks if everyone has left. Archie says they all lost their appetite and wants to know what Jughead did with the food he prepared. Jughead says he didn't prepare any food - just the menu.

Indexer Notes

Typical gag bag strip - two four-panel gag strips occupying the bottom half of the page. The top half is occupied by the "Wrong Number" strip. One interesting thing to note about this strip is that there are two gags in the first one. Archie Comics were hugely popular in the US at the time (even more so then than they are now), but were also popular in Canada (and they still are today). Many Canadian readers may not have understood the "Smokey the Bear" gag, since Smokey is affiliated with US National Parks, so the writers through in an equally-funny Canadian gag. One of the many duties of the Mounties (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) is to patrol Canada's national parks. A long-time saying associated with the group is "The Mounties always get their man!". Betty comes dressed as a Mountie so she can always get her man (most likely Archie). This gag would ensure that Canadian readers find the strip funny, regardless of whether or not they knew who Smokey the Bear was.

Veronica and Archie are getting tired of this, and Reggie again says to name a stunt and he'll do it. Archie asks Reggie if he can land on the front end of one ski and on the back end of the other ski. Reggie says that he can, does a flip in the air, and lands just as Archie said - which leaves him stuck in the snow.

After that, Moose gets up and says that after he studies his nuclear physics, he likes to relax with chess. Archie then tells Reggie that it's his turn to tell fibs. Reggie responds by saying that he's never told a lie in his life and isn't about to start now. In the last panel, Reggie is seen looking surprised as he's holding a large trophy that says "1st prize Riverdale Liars Club" on it.
