Announcer introduction: "When Molly faced with an immediate problem, she found a quick, warmhearted solution... and her gesture is turning into a boomerang filled with trouble. There were any number of mothers working in the defense factories, so Molly decided to take care of their children during the day... and Jake finally got himself to the point of just grumbling about it. But suddenly a certain Mrs. Corey, a woman of means and large interests in community welfare, descended on Molly and told her that this amateur nursery school was out of the question and should be stopped. It was a question for the authorities, surveys, board meetings and so on... But Molly's heart is with the children, not with the surveys... and so this next morning, we are waiting to see what happens... LISTEN..."

Announcer close: "Just what Molly should expect and just what must be done with the children in the interim... isn't settled yet... But there seems to be a fight brewing between those who want to do something now and those who think there's a lifetime to settle a big immediate problem... and we know which side Molly is rooting for."
