Thanks to spotts1701 we know that today's reprint is a modified version of the strip wherein Elly moans about having to face the consequences of meddling in other people's lives; what is altered is that any reference to Connie's cousin has been removed.

Panel 1: We see Elly on the phone; since she's holding the handset in her right hand, she can only make half of that ridiculous palms-out gesture as she tells Connie that she doesn't know who that girl is.

Panel 2: She then tells her to do something that used to be "Look, just go on down to the club and take in a show with your cousin" but isn't any more because said cousin fell down the memory hole. Now it's "Look, just go on down to the club and take in a show."

Panel 3: In a masterpiece of doublethink, Elly tells her "Connie, this is your problem and I really don't want to get involved."

Panel 4: Since she knows that she is involved, Elly thought-bubbles "Famous words...usually spoken when you're up to your neck in someone else's business."

Summary: She does know that she is involved but that's the limit of her awareness; she will find some way to blame the whole stinking mess on Phil and Phil alone.
