The Godless Girl

1
It is not generally known
 that there are Atheist
Societies using the schools
of the country as their
battle-ground - attacking,
through the Youth of the 
Nation, the beliefs that
are sacred to most of the
         people.

[dissolve to:]

2
And no fanatics are so
  bitter as youthful
      fanatics.

3
"Call a meeting of 
 the Godless Society
 tonight - same hour -
    same place!"

4
"This blasphemy is
 spreading through the
 school like a plague!
 It must be stopped!"

5
"I will address the
 Students at once!"

6
Judy, daughter of
 Atheism ... Bob, son 
of Gospel ... Intolerance
 versus Intolerance.

7
"All those who have
 copies of these
 blasphemous pamphlets,
 will bring them to me
      at once!"

8
"Are there any more?"

9
"Under the State Law,
 the student responsible
 for this outrage is
 liable to imprisonment!"

10
"As President of the 
 student-body, I suggest
 you let us handle this
 our own way - and I
 guarantee it will be
     wiped out!"

11
"You may handle it
 your own way -
 but remember, no
   violence!"

12
A shabby hall, on a
 squalid street ...
where little rebels
blow spit-balls at the
   Rock of Ages.

13
"This is the Scientific
 Age - we don't need
       a God!"

14
"Come and get a
 pamphlet from 'Koko'!
 Don't high-hat him -
  he's your cousin!"

15
"Easy, fellers - those
 Godless babies are
     upstairs!"

16
"Handle these eggs
 gently - you may 
 be old yourself some 
        day!"

17
"Our new member,
 Mr. Bozo Johnson,
 will now take the
      oath!"

18
"Bozo, swear that you
 don't believe in the
 Bible - the Church -
      or God!"

19
"Does that cut out my
 Christmas holidays?"

20
"Well, if it isn't
      Angel!"

21
"You and your goofy
 gang beat it! We're
 going to wipe this
   place clean!"

22
"You've got just one
 minute to get out!"

23
"In just one minute
 I'm going to clunk
 you on the button!"

24
"If it's a fight you
  want - start it!"

25
"I'll teach you to tell
 my kid sister there
   isn't any God!"

26
"Well, Bible-Pounder, we're
     still with you!"

27
"I can get you out of
 this, Judy! All you got
 to do is go religious!"

28
"POLICE, quick!
   Riot-call!"

29
"You're going to need
 that rotten banner for
      bandages!"

30
"It's breaking - the rail's
         breaking!"

31
"Beat it - the cops!"

32
"That kid's dyin' - I'll
   get an ambulance!"

33
"Judy - tell me you're
 wrong - I don't want
 this to be the end!
 Tell me - there's
 something more!"

34
"Judy, this can't be the
 end! I'm scared - I'm
 scared to be all alone!"

35
"You ain't got no call
 to be scared, baby -
 where you're goin'! He's
 waitin' there to take
   you in His arms!"

36
"Judy - he's right! There
 is something more - I see
     it - I see ..."

37
"He pushed her over -
     I saw him!"

38
"You did this - you and
 your holy thugs - you
     killed her!"

39
"I'd advise you to shut
 up - as you'll both be
 held with manslaughter!"

40
The REFORMATORY..Bricks...
  Barbed-Wire...Iron...
 And rebellious Youth.

41
"Say, what's the
 big idea - I'm
 not a criminal!"

42
"No - but it won't
   be long now!"

43
"Just shape it a little
 at the nape of the
 neck - don't touch
    the front!"

44
"Save the gas, Sister -
 you got a big hill to
       climb!"

45
"New girls get their hair
 cut short - and every
 word you speak will
 add one day to your
      sentence!"

46
"Pipe down, Bimbo,
 you're just one of
 God's step-children
   in this joint!"

47
"Just a chip off the 
     old block!"

48
"What does one do
   with these?"

49
"One parks the carcass
 in 'em, dearie! You
 ain't dressin' for tired
    business men!"

50
"Gimme them papers -
 the child is in London!"

51
"If you try a getaway -
 those cuts will leave
 tracks a blind man could
         see!"

52
"Them stripes are a
 target - so they
 can pot you if
   you escape!"

53
"Keep your pants on!"

54
"But they're all just 
       alike!"

55
"I worked three years
    to get that!"

56
"3107!"

57
The muscles of an Ox...
 the brains of a Sheep...
 the mercy of a Hyena...
 the Head Guard.

58
Day in, day out...Week
 in, week out...GONGS
to eat and gongs to
drink...gongs to sleep
and gongs to wake...

59
GONGS...crashing into
 her dreams of the
Boy on the other side
 of the Iron Fence.

60
"That sour Matron ought to
 gargle this line about
  lovin' one another!"

61
"Let's cut the Bible
 stuff, Mame - it's just
   popular fiction!"

62
"You ain't so good, that
 readin' this won't make
      you better!"

63
"Bend for it, baby -
 or they'll pick you
  up in a dustpan!"

64
"I dropped it, Ma'am..
     accidental!"

65
"No salvation-hunter
 can take my blame!
 I threw it there -
    on purpose!"

66
"So, you lied to protect
      another girl!"

67
"Now, both of you
 report to the
 Garbage Detail!"

68
"You almost make me
 believe this stuff
 works - when I see
 how white you are!"

69
"Wash - faces!"

70
"Wash - ears!"

71
"Who - did - that?"

72
"So you want to play
 with water! All right -
  I'll play with you!"

73
"Did I hear you
   say stop?"

74
"What you heard,
 is where you can
      go to!"

75
"Get out of here now -
  and report to the
   Garbage Detail!"

76
GARBAGE

77
"What a laugh! Your Belief
 and my Blasphemy, both
  ending in garbage!"

78
"Cover up, dearie - 
 I've seen better heads 
    on cabbages!"

79
"You got a snooty habit 
 of steppin' on things
   over your head!"

80
"I'm the Mama that put
   the it in mitt!"

81
"Take that mitt home,
 Blondy - and keep
   it for a pet!"

82
"Nix - it might have
      mittens!"

83
"Don't be sore, Judy -
 I tried to railroad you
 to heaven, but I landed
     you in hell!"

84
"I'm not sore! That kid's
 been dying in my arms
 every night - I'm begin-
 ning to understand a lot 
      of things!"

85
"From now on, Sheik, you
 can do your love-makin'
 on bread and water -
     in Solitary!"

86
"I'll get you out of
 this hell-hole, Judy -
  I'll get you out!"

87
"Say - prayers!"

88
"We ain't prayin' to
 God - we're prayin'
    to a gong!"

89
"Goodnight, Mame. The
 more I see of you -
 the less I like myself!"

90
Solitary - a black hole
 lined with stone and
 steel - to shut in Hate,
 and shut out Mercy.

91
"What have they done
      to Judy?"

92
"They've put her to work
 in the Girls' Meat House!"

93
"I'll learn you that bread
 and water - means bread
       and water!"

94
"Let him go, you
 big bum! He's only
      a kid!"

95
"I'll - be - back!"

96
"I'm back - and I'm comin' 
     in for you!"

97
"Take this load of 
 provisions to the
 Girls' Meat House.
 Here's your pass!"

98
The incidents of this story 
 are true. These conditions 
actually exist in certain 
reformatories. There are many 
others, however, that are 
humane and progressive - 
thanks to those who are 
striving to help our 
Delinquent Youth to become
  good men and women.

99
"I'm just puttin' on 
   a little dog!"

100
"We're going to escape!"

101
"Are we? Ain't that 
      grand!"

102
"Get Judy..and keep
 the Matron busy while
      we duck!"

103
"Judy?...Oh, you mean
        Judy!"

104
"Snap out of it, Romeo -
 I'm waitin' for a hog!"

105
"You'll crab the act!
 Wait till I do my
 stuff - then blow!"

106
"Gimme that crate of
 hen-fruit - and watch
 me lay an omelette!"

107
"So long, babies - don't
    look backward!"

108
"You'll pay for this!"

109
"The dirty skunk
 crashed out! He's
 dog-bait now! Let's
       go!"

110
"He breezed - in the
    boloney bus!"

111
"They're after us!"

112
"Grab some grub 
   and step!"

113
"Let's take to the
 water - and lose
    the dogs!"

114
Night...a deserted Farm...
    and Sanctuary.

115
"I've tried - so hard - 
     to hate you!"

116
"And I've tried - so
 hard - not to love
        you!"

117
"We'll follow along the
 bank, and pick up the
 trail where they come
         out!"

118
New day...new hope...

119
"When you look at all
 this - it's easy to
 believe Someone is
  running things!"

120
"I'll show you what
 that joint has made
  me believe in!"

121
"Your figures add up
 wrong, Bob - let's
     try mine!"

122
"Here's where they left
 the river - it won't be
       long now!"

123
"I love you, Judy!
 Let's live today...it's
 all we're sure of!"

124
"I'm sure of a Tomorrow,
 Bob, and it depends on
 Today! Don't let's spoil
    it...I love you!"

125
"Where's the girl?"

126
"Flop him up against 
 the wall - and I'll
 give him what's comin'
      to him!"

127
"They can't hurt us now,
 Bob! We've found what
 they can never take
        away!"

128
"When you get out of
 that bracelet - you'll
 be thin enough to dive
      through it!"

129
"That black cat ain't
 goin' to hoodoo me!"

130
Red Judgment

131
"Let 'er sizzle, Sisters!
 It's a red-hot chance
    for a getaway!"

132
"Block that door so's
 to give the fire a
 chance! Turn off the
 water - and beat it
 down the back way!"

133
"Judy!"

134
"Whoopee! Get out your
 asbestos union-suits!"

135
"I thought I was the whole
 thing - but now I'm up
 against it - and I need
          You!"

136
"Fire on the girls'
       side!"

137
"Keep the gates locked -
 and the boys on their
      own side!"

138
"Judy! Judy! They've
  forgotten you!"

139
"So long, Mame! Beat it,
   and save yourself!"

140
"Hang on, kid! I'll be
 back with those keys -
   or melt comin'!"

141
"Do you see Judy 
   anywhere?"

142
"Quick - another hose -
  down by the cells!"

143
"Gimme your keys -
 Judy's in Solitary!"

144
"Mame's got the keys!
 Let's grab 'em and
     crash out!"

145
"Stick the blonde Sardine
    behind the gate!"

146
"Judy's sunk if you
 don't get to her!
 Climb the wall -
 then down to the
      cells!"

147
"Keep hold of me -
 don't let me be afraid!"

148
"Oh, Lord - we're
 dependin' on You!"

149
"Come back - don't
    leave me!"

150
"We've got to get
 Judy - she's in
    Solitary!"

151
"You dirty rat - she'll
     burn alive!"

152
"God - don't let him
 go through that gate!
 Don't let him leave
       Judy!"

153
"It's got me - it's 
      got me!"

154
"Don't touch him, Bob -
   it'll kill you!"

155
"The switch - quick!
     I'm dying!"

156
"Save me, kids - don't
     let me burn!"

157
"Don't judge him, Bob - 
      save him!"

158
"Come on, we'll get 'em -
       or roast!"

159
"The Inspector's here - 
 get him - I'm done for!"

160
"This bunch risked their
 lives to get me out -
 I recommend - release!"

161
"Come with us, Mame -
 let's go on together!"

162
"Nothin' doin' - three
 ain't a couple - it's
     a calamity!"

163
"Don't be so bitter, Bob!
 after all, it did teach us
 to believe - and let
      believe!"
