At the white house half way up the next block Vic and Sade sit, and are talking as Rush tries to put the finishing touches on his algebra homework. Rush, as usual, is distracted as he looks for any excuse to lay his homework aside.

Though Vic and Rush have the concept down pat, and try to tell her of the importance, she just doesn’t want to grasp it.

Note: For new time listeners to this long running series. The daily series was something of a soap opera with consistent themes. Although each show is a stand alone episode that doesn’t rely on previous or following ones in a continuing story line. One noteable fact is that for the entire run of the show, spanning from the early 1930’s thru the late 1940’s, there was only one writer, making Paul Rhymer one of the most prolific authors of American history. Even more than Mark Twain, yet the talents and name of Paul Rhymer are little known today.
