**********************************

PLOT SUMMARY: (From the 1966 Starstone Yearbook) Narrated in fairy tale form, the play involved the rise of a little old lady, aided by an industrious businessman, to the top of a multi-zillion dollar corporation. When the naive spinster, Mrs. Partridge, enters big business, the corporation dealers try to cover up their swindlings by giving her the nonexistent job of "Stockholders Relations Director". Mrs. Partridge's sincerity soon gains the confidence of many stockholders. Big Ed McKeever helps Mrs. Partridge expose the swindling corporation directors and soon the nasty old directors are fired.
