COMEDY. Source: Elinor Glyn, "The Vicissitudes of Evangeline" (New York, 1905). Gold digger "Bubbles" McCoy, a manicurist, finds that Robert Lennon, the man she has chosen to marry, is under the guardianship of three bachelor friends, all of whom have courted her and given her many expensive gifts. Against the guardians' advice, Lennon announces the engagement. At the engagement party, "Bubbles", angry and irritated because of criticism against her, removes all the sartorial gifts she wears, leaps half nude into the swimming pool, and is pulled out by her sympathetic, forgiving fiance.
