(Strip Number 820, Original Publication Date, 19 March 1985)
Panel 1: When Elly checks into the hotel, the clerk calls for a bell-hop only to have her say that since she only has one bag, it's not necessary..
Panel 2: As he continues to yell for a bell-hop, Elly insists that he need not waste the man's time because that she only has the one bag.
Panel 3: She reminds herself of the unplesant fact that she doesn't have money for a tip now anyway.
Panel 4: As she struggles awkwardly with her overloaded suitcase, she thought-bubbles "Oh well... the trick is to look cool."
Summary: Sadly, looking cool is not what Elly did. What she looked like is someone out of her depth doing something stupid-looking for a silly reason.
