Announcer introduction: "Well Molly is getting organized in her new effort to win the war... It started with Molly offering to take care of a neighbor's children while the mother went to work... but yesterday Molly had a house full of children... and this morning she is going to have a house full again. It's for the duration and Molly is getting help from Homer Collins, a man with a horse and wagon who wants to contribute not money... he doesn't have any... not his fortunes... he doesn't have any... he wants to give Homer Collins... the biggest contribution of all... and so Molly is all set... or so she thinks... Listen..."

Announcer close: "The wagon load of children go slowly to Molly's house, the children singing and Homer leading them all... It's a wonderful beginning for a wonderful idea... but there are people in this world who don't see things like the Mollys and Homers and the parents of all these children... and one of them comes around."
