Wally isn't looking forward to a school dance this upcoming Saturday. The boys from Mayfield High are supposed to draw names of girls from Riverside High to take to the dance, and the boys from Riverside draw names of girls from Mayfield. Wally ends up drawing Marjorie Muller's name. Eddie comes by with a proposition for Wally: they switch dates as Eddie professes to know Marjorie and would like to take her. With yearbook in hand, Eddie shows Wally photos of both Marjorie and Eddie's drawn date, Gail Preston. Wally admits Gail is a knockout, so he agrees to the switch. When Wally meets Gail a few days before the dance, he understands why Eddie was so anxious to switch: Gail is a good four inches taller than he is. Not wanting to get ribbed by the other guys, Wally contemplates not going to the dance and if he does go, thinks of ways to make himself look taller. By the time the dance rolls around and Gail shows up, Wally forgets all about the issue thanks to Gail. But Beaver may end up... Written by Huggo
