Indexer Notes

This story features "Mildred Norton" (a drawing modelled on actress Joan Crawford), usually used in "advice columns" and comic stories. In this story, she appears in one panel as the narrator and identifies herself only as Elsa's sister. This story is probably a reprint and may have been slightly altered.
