Genre
non-fiction; romance
Characters
Jerry Jones; Matt; Peggy Barclay [also as Margaret Barclay]; Mr. Barclay; Judge
Synopsis
Peggy is stopped for speeding on the way to a dance. The policeman who gives her the ticket is Matt, who turns out to be the blind date she was set up with for the dance. They fall in love. Matt stops her again at a later date and gives her a “ticket” which is a marriage proposal.

Indexer Notes

The protagonist is called "Judy" not "Peggy" in the splash panel's text box.

These stories often use the name of the alleged true-life contributor, but in this case this is "A true love story sent in by Sally Wilson of Dayton, Ohio" and yet the main character has a completely different name.

Indexer Notes

This is not really a dramatization, it is more of an illustrated advice column showing how to dress fashionably on a budget.
