Synopsis:
Unattractive college student Laura goes home on vacation. When telephone installer Rod arrives, she’s wearing a beautiful life-like mask and he asks her for a date. That night, she poses as the maid (sans mask) when he arrives: he’s attracted to her, but she thinks it’s just because he isn’t wearing his glasses. However, Rod says he loves her and that makes her beautiful in his eyes. Laura is doubtful but eventually realises he’s sincere.

Indexer Notes

Looks so unlike Lee Elias work while it does, that it makes me wonder if he inked it (freely) over someone else.

Indexer Notes

This story seems to be somewhat tied in to the advice column "Dear Peggy" which follows, although the "famous authority" who gives advice in the last panel is not identified. Readers are urged to send in their problems and each issue one will be illustrated in a comic story.

Could be the same artist as the first story, but without Elias inking
