6 page Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica story "Of Dates and Nuts"

Characters Archie Andrews; Betty Cooper; Hiram Lodge; Veronica Lodge; Reggie Mantle; un-named saleslady
Synopsis Reggie and Veronica are hiding behind a tree across the street from the bowling alley. Archie and Betty get kicked out of the bowling alley (literally). We then learn what happened - Archie tells Betty that she shouldn't have rolled the bowling ball through the juke box. Betty says it was an accident - the ball ricocheted off the manager's knee. Betty then tells Archie that she'll see him tomorrow, and the two head their separate ways. This angers Veronica, who quickly pushes Reggie aside and storms off. When Archie gets home, Veronica is there waiting for him and says that he may take her out on Tuesday. Archie explains that this is the night he and Betty are collecting their prize for leading in the scholastic sweepstakes. Veronica then goes to find Betty and decides that Betty has to dress in the latest style if she's going out with Archie. She proceeds to pick out a wild flashy outfit, and Betty thinks this is a bit extreme. Veronica tries to convince Betty that this is the typical style for Dimmy's Discotheque, and pays off the saleslady to say that it would be a perfect outfit for Betty's date. Tuesday night arrives and Betty shows up at Archie's door in the wild outfit - only to find out that it's a formal dance at Riverdale Country Club. Archie tells Betty to go put on a formal gown, but Betty refuses to go without a new formal, and shoves Archie out the door, telling him to take Veronica instead.Veronica is of course all dressed and waiting for him. Archie and Veronica head off to the club, talking about Archie's memory - only to arrive at the club and find that it's closed on Tuesday, and Archie can't remember when the dance was.

6 page Betty and Veronica story "Drag Drama"

Characters Archie Andrews; Betty Cooper; Hiram Lodge; Veronica Lodge; Moose Mason
Synopsis Betty and Veronica walk past the local drag strip where several boys are out working on their cars.They get annoyed when none of the boys notice them. Both agree to meet again in an hour and go home to put on their full "battle regalia". Soon, Veronica shows up at the drag strip again wearing a miniskirt. When the boys again ignore her, she stands there tapping her foot at Archie, who asks if there's something wrong with her shoe. Veronica says that there's something wrong with his eyes, and she'd like to see a car try to wear a miniskirt. Moose replies that he'd like to see a girl wear white-walls, and Betty, laughing, says he's right. Betty is now wearing a hat and a Riverdale Dragsters shirt, saying she'd do anything to be near Archie. Veronica says she doesn't need gimmicks to get the boys, and asks Archie to "come hither". When she doesn't get a response, she yells at who she thinks is Archie. The boy says that he's not Archie - he's Harry, and points that Archie is under the car. Veronica storms off, vowing to have the boys eating out of her hand. On the day of the race, we see Veronica and her dad standing near the drag strip. Veronica is holding a large gold trophy that her father donated at her request, although Mr. Lodge doesn't seem to be too thrilled. Archie, after losing his race, asks Veronica for a date, but she declines, saying that her dad has arranged a night of entertainment for her and the winner. A photographer says he'd like to take a picture of Veronica presenting the trophy to the winner, and Mr. Lodge says that they're finishing the last heat. Veronica tells Archie that she's flattered that all the boys would work so hard just to be with her, as the winner crosses the finish line. Veronica says that it's a shame Betty isn't there to see her moment of glory. In the last panel, we see Betty sitting in the winning dragster, taking off her helmet as she tells Veronica that she is there.

Mr. Weatherbee sees Betty on top of the boy and thinks she's chasing him. Betty heads off to her next class, as a couple of boys are playing basketball in the hallway. She walks by one of the boys just as his friend throws the basketball, and the boy ends up crashing into Betty.

Betty stumbles off, short of breath, and decides to hang onto Jughead for a second until she catches her breath, only to have Mr. Weatherbee see this as well. Jughead runs off, and Mr. Weatherbee has a quick chat with Betty about being boy crazy. He then calls Veronica over and tells her to stick close to Betty.
