  • Wally worries that popular Myra won't go with him to the sophomore spring dance if he can't afford to buy her an expensive orchid corsage.

  • It's still early in his dating life, and Wally wants to go to the upcoming sophomore dance only if the most popular girl in his class, Myra, goes with him, but he isn't sure if she'll agree to go with him. She does accept his nervously asked invitation. His excitement is tempered by the fact that she implies that she would like an expensive orchid corsage since she has to uphold the look expected as chair of the dance committee. He finds out an orchid costs $7.50 which is about three times the amount he has and much more expensive than something like a gardenia corsage. He isn't sure if Myra will still want to go with him unless he can get her the orchid, and thus he isn't sure if he still wants to go to the dance. Although June tries her hardest to convince Ward to pay for this one small luxury to keep face in Wally's young dating life, Ward refuses, stating that it is an extravagance that no young girl should expect of a young boy. With Mrs. Rayburn's help, Beaver thinks he knows how to solve Wally's problem. Barring that, June decides to bring out the big guns to convince Ward.
