Storyline

While going through a box belonging to Helen, Andy comes across a newspaper clipping with a photo showing her being arrested by two policeman. The caption is partly missing but it clearly gives Helen's name and that she is being arrested. Andy phones her home town newspaper to get more information and they confirm the story, but not the outcome of the trial. After Goober and Howard see the clipping on Andy's desk, news of Helen's past spreads like wildfire. It also comes to the attention of Mrs. Pendleton, the Chairman of the school Board who decides to take action and fire Helen. Andy has to get the whole story pretty quick if she's to keep her job.
