Doris is dismayed to see the state of the plants on her patio, which she learns are being slowly killed by sulfur poisoning, the nurseryman who can smell the sulfur in the air. She tracks the culprit down to a new sulfur factory, Fedderson Sulfur, which she tries to shut down. She does slightly soften her opinion when she learns of sulfur's many uses, but still comes out of the meeting with the plant manager unsatisfied that they will not make the easy and quick fix to reduce toxic emissions at a $500,000 price tag. She gets permission from Colonel Fairburn, who is overseeing the running of the magazine in Nick's absence, to write an anti-pollution article, especially concerning her specific situation.

As such, the Colonel kills the story. Doris has to figure out a way to change the Colonel's mind. Mother... Written by
