Squatter's Town & Widow Stewart

As our adventure opens, Doctor Christian is visiting Squatter’s Town, the slum area just outside the town of River’s Edge. He discovers two small urchins and their big brother trying to live in a condemned shack. There is no father or mother, and to get money for food the big brother searches through the town junk yard for items to sell. Disease is rampant and the Doctor does all he can to help keep them well, but it is an uphill battle because the people living in Squatter’s Town cannot afford housing that can shelter them from the elements. Doctor Christian would like to get the wealthy people in River’s Edge to build low-cost housing for the poor people in Squatter’s Town . . . . He tells the town leaders that no sacrifice is too great and they should agree to finance construction in the empty lot owned by wealthy widow Stewart. Furniture store owner Harry Johnson has been trying to buy that lot for years but the wealthy widow will not part with that piece of land for any amount of money. He convinces the other town leaders to agree to finance housing for the poor people on the condition that Widow Stewart will donate the land . . . . . Knowing that she will not even sell the land let alone donate it. This way the town leaders can pretend to be willing to help the poor people, but they know that the land will never become available, so they will be off the hook and not need to finance the construction. . . What the town leaders do not know is that Widow Stewart is desperately in love with Doctor Christian, and she will donate the land free of charge if . . . . . If Doctor Christian agrees to marry her! Doctor Christian swallows hard and decides that no sacrifice is too great to help the poor people of Squatter’s Town, and he agrees to marry the wealthy widow. Talk about Courage . . . . This may be Dr. Christian's most courageous hour. Unfortunately, even when he agrees to marry Widow Stewart the town leaders refuse to finance the project. It looks like Doctor Christian is really in a pickle now . . . . But wait . . . . The really big crisis is still to come. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
