(Strip Number 4678, Original Publication Date, 19 September 1986)
Panel 1: We find Elly in front of the courthouse trying to hand out fliers. First, a woman in her forties strides on past before she can read the brochure Elly is trying to hand her.
Panel 2: Similarly, a bald, bearded man tunes her out when she reminds him that arts are underfunded.
Panel 3: Next, a woman her age zips on by without paying attention to her plea to save the old theater.
Panel 4: A few minutes later, we find her scowling because the only way she could draw a crowd was to yell "free beer."
Summary: What we see here is something that Elly is at pains to ignore. It does not please her that in a representative democracy, the town council aren't aliens from space who want to shove sports down people's throats but members of a sports-loving community.
