Same script and art as the Archie story in Pep Comics (Archie, 1940 series) #28. Changes include updated art for the main characters, store names changed from Crown Soda to Pop Tate's, and the elimination of references to Archie being class president. The prologue box is changed to feature the story's title and the epilogue box is changed to feature an ad for war bonds.
