Eleanor and Claire talked shortly and agreed that the feud between their husbands was silly. They decided that they would plan a meeting with all four of them. They went back to the cabin where Ruth was and let him know their thoughts. Ruth agreed and they all enjoyed drink and food. Eleanor seemed to get a bit carried away with the time and eventually went and looked for Lou to bring him to the meeting. Of course Lou was upset since he'd been searching for her. As if just hearing that she had been in Ruth's cabin wasn't enough, he learned that she had been drinking and having a good time in Ruth's cabin. The meeting never happened.

The factory gets out the ball bearings, the block rubber, and the go-juice, and the home run epidemic follows." - Paul Gallico
