SCENE 1 At Hooper's Store, Mr. Hooper is puzzled that no one ever takes the top issue of the newspaper in the bin, going for all the issues underneath instead. He and Bob try to find out what would happen if the torn newspaper on top of the stack was placed in a different position. Susan comes by and picks up the second (bad) paper, not caring about how dirty it is. Oscar comes by, wondering where the “good” (dirty) paper went. He settles for a clean newspaper, which he proceeds to tear up himself.
