Indexer Notes

The job code on this reprint is mostly unreadable except for the '74'.

Melissa's reflections on page six of the story have been changed in this reprint from "He seems so indifferent...I don't understand.! I thought he'd be glad to see me...but he acts as if I'm just another friend!" to "They're all drunk--maybe I should leave--Tripper doesn't seem to care about me any more..." This reprint also deletes a comment by Tripper when Arlene collapses (following "Cool it, baby!")--"We don't want any trouble--do we?" The change seems to be censorship to remove the implication that Tripper and his party friends are using drugs.
