Editor's Note: Interesting that Alice doesn't like Arnie Shaw. He is a bit of a wheeler-dealer always swapping horses and watches and things. Maybe Alice just thinks Allen never makes out in the deals. I don't know why her dad had this wilting flower image of her because on many occasions now she certainly has put up a fuss when she felt it was warranted. She walks off in huffs, she calls Allen a fool when he is one and at one point she stopped talking to him (before they were married). I would defer to her judgment I am sure.
