In today's strip, we find ourselves watching the horrible behavior that so terrified Elly: Janice talking Mike and Lawrence into chasing Farley with trash-can lid shields and cardboard swords. 

(Strip Number 415, Original Publication Date, 2 May 1983)

Panel 1: We find Janice, Lawrence and Mike walking down a back alley. As she takes point, she tells them "Okay, men. We've got the magic sword that'll let us slay the dragon. All we need now is a dragon."

Panel 2: Upon sighting Farley, Janice yells "AH-HAH!!" in triumph and spooks him. Mike tells her that Farley is too chicken to fight.

Panel 3: As Farley flees from the loud, scary children, Janice tells Mike that Farley doesn't need to fight.

Panel 4: She then says "One whiff of dog-breath an'it's game over."

Summary: Lynn's notes are all about how she had great plans for this character that collapsed in the face of negative comments from her fan base. These could well have ranged from "Peppermint Patty wasn't a thug" to "Get rid of that ugly little girl."
