Jug, step out on the balcony for a second!
Genre
humor; teen
Characters
Jughead Jones; Ethel Muggs
Synopsis
Ethel, dragging Jughead away from the buffet table, asks him to step out onto the balcony. Pointing to a nearby fountain, Ethel asks Jughead what the pretty fountain does for him. Jughead replies that it reminds him of the sparkling soda that Ronnie [Veronica] has inside. Ethel romantically tells Jughead to look at the moon and sighs. Jughead says it looks just like the custard pie he just saw inside. Ethel asks Jughead if being out on the balcony does anything for him. Jughead, running back towards the buffet table and drooling, says that it makes him hungry.

Indexer Notes

Jughead's comment about the "soda water Ronnie has inside" is the only thing that tells us the party is being held at the Lodge mansion. Veronica is never seen.

Genre

Characters
Veronica Lodge; Cynthia
Synopsis
Cynthia tells Veronica that Harold invited her to a baseball game and she doesn't know the first thing about it. Veronica tells Cynthia that she came to the right person and that she'll tell Cynthia everything she needs to know about the game. Veronica then tells Cynthia the following "rules": 1) When your date shouts, you shout; 2) When he looks sad, you look sad; 3) Never tell him that another player is handsome, no matter how handsome the player is; 4) Take home your scorecard as a treasured memento. Cynthia is glad she asked a real baseball expert.

Indexer Notes

Spelling note: The correct spelling of "momento" is "memento". However, according to Dictionary.com, the mis-spelled version "occurs so frequently in edited writing that some regard it as a variant spelling rather than an error." (see http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/memento). Therefore, this is most likely not an editorial oversight.

Reggie asks how they're supposed to plan the spring dance when the girls won't give them their attention.

humor; teen
Characters
Alice Cooper; Betty Cooper
Synopsis
Betty is in her room, putting on her makeup. Her mom looks in and points out that she's been dolling herself up for several hours. Betty replies that she's going to a very important masquerade. A little while later, while Mrs. Cooper is vacuuming the hallway, Betty says that she's done - emerging dressed as a middle-eastern woman with most of her body covered - including her face.

Indexer Notes

They probably wouldn't be able to get away with this gag today. It would be "politically incorrect".

Characters

Synopsis
Betty and Veronica are at the beach, and notice that they seem to have the beach to themselves. At first they are happy about this - they can get a tan without being disturbed because there are no boys to kick sand in their faces, no boys to mooch their sandwiches and no boys to dunk them in the water. In the last panel, Veronica says that the day is going to be one big drag (no boys).

D-uh, boy I like them romantic songs!
Genre
humor; teen
Characters
Midge Klump; Moose Mason
Synopsis
Moose and Midge are sitting in a restaurant and Moose comments that he likes romantic songs (referring to a song playing on the jukebox). Midge asks since when "Hold That Tiger" was a romantic song. Moose says it is a romantic song - to another tiger.

Indexer Notes

The song that Midge is referring to is probably "Hold That Tiger (Tiger Rag)" by Claude King. This song was the flip-side of "Catch A Little Raindrop", so it could very well have been played in jukeboxes. It is not known when the single was released, but singles were often released well in advance of the album, and the album containing this song was released in December 1965 - only a few months after the comic. This strip occupies the top half of the page. Bottom half is "Certain Suspect".

Mr. Lodge says he hopes the stretch manufacturers don't forget fathers. When Veronica asks why, Mr. Lodge says that they'll need stretch wallets to afford all those stretch clothes.

Betty asks her how she did it, and Mildred says that she sent him a registered letter, and he signed the receipt, which is always returned to the sender. Betty says this is brilliant thinking. Miss Grundy asks how the two are doing, and Betty says they're doing just fine - she's never learned so much in her life.

Synopsis
Mr. Lodge is looking at a new yacht, and has a few questions for the salesman before he purchases it.

When her dad asks what this question is, Veronica asks the salesman if he gives trading stamps.

Indexer Notes

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trading_stamps for more information on trading stamps. This comic shows just how much things have changed in 42 years - the salesman says that the yacht has two 280-horsepower engines...
