Now, let's get back to our continuing 1930s syndicated serial, "The Monticello Party Line", a little known series written by Sandra Michael who would go on to later fame as the creator of the Peabody award winning program, "Against the Storm".

Program 735 in the series was originally heard December 16, 1938 and is, as usual, sponsored by Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin.  It's the last day for the Sara and Aggie apron offer.  In the story, Jack decides to open the letter he's received from Chicago.  Will he discover Marilyn's plan for a divorce?
