The change is almost insignificant as it is just a younger brother taking over for his older brother once the older brother leaves town for college.

He uses the words of Joe Crowell discussing his teacher’s impending betrothment, “Well, of course it ain’t none of my business—but I think if a person starts out to be a teacher she ought to stay one.” In making this comment, Wilder urges the audience to discover that small towns like their banal lifestyle. The quote is also used to demonstrate that in a small town it is normal to have an opinion on everything happening in the community. In fact, small towns have become known for their gossiping and Wilder supports this belief both with Crowell as well as later in Act I with the conversation amongst Mrs. Gibbs, Mrs. Webb, and Mrs. Soames.

Also, in the paragraph fourteen the author stated, “When the song ended, the audience clapped and called for more.” then in paragraph twenty-three, the author stated, “Shouts of “Hey, Dominic!” and “Whoo-hoo, Mr. 50’s!” filled the gym.” These paragraphs show that, Ian was having to face a hard decision on picking a winning act.
