Angie gets the lead in the Midwest U annual show, produced by bandleader Elliott Lawrence. She decides to quit school and become a professional singer, although she's not good enough. Her boyfriend Larry asks Mr. Lawrence to dissuade her: Lawrence asks his vocalist Gwynne to make up a story about how she lost her own boyfriend due to the demands of her career. Angie changes her mind and will stay in school. Unfortunately for Lawrence, Gwynne also decides to quit her job and get married.

Indexer Notes

Although the title on the splash panel is "Elliott Lawrence," Lawrence refers to the story in the caption as "Angie's Antics."

Elliott Lawrence was a real-life bandleader who plays himself in the story. However, it cannot be confirmed that his vocalist "Gwynne Ames" was also a real person.

Larry Lawton is called "Harry" in the splash panel.
