Meet Allan Caldwell, comic artist, blacklisted since the 1950s for his testimony to the U.S. Congressional Inquiry. Tour the greatest city in America during a period of social disintegration. This Issue: "Become A Pulp Writer of maybe a Vaudevillian". The word is out about Harold's association with Caldwell. It is also plain that he is keeping company with the beautiful June.

Together, Harold and June leave the convention and tour Manhattan. Upon returning to the convention, they find that she has been reported a runaway. Her disappearance is blamed on Harold and he is warned to keep his distance.
