Indexer Notes

This story was altered from it's original printing. It appears that it was changed in the first panel to be an assignment for the weekend from Miss Grundy. Later in the story Veronica states that she had hers done for over a month. The original printing probably had this as an assignment for their summer vacation rather than just the weekend mentioned on the first page.
