Announcer introduction: "The annual village celebration is going on in many homes, but Molly Goldberg feels like retiring to solitude... just to be alone. It's been a full and heart-shaking year, Sammy is in the Army, the village is emptied of the young men... the girls are in the mills. Things are changed... and not only that... but the battle is still ahead... the battle that must be fought and won on the battlefield, a battle that can't be talked away for a temporary peace... So Molly doesn't have much heart for parties... In fact she seems to be definitely against them... Listen..."

Announcer close: "Jake's lesson on morale has tapped the great vitality and courage that more than anything is Molly... Molly herself... and with her we feel that we too must have the iron in our hearts and the courageous smile on our faces... because this is going to be a victory... our victory..."
