Sid and Babe are in opposite camps. Despite cajoling from her fellow garment workers, Babe appears to reject Sid.

At the meeting, as Prez and Mae's relationship is waning, Sid arrives and tries to smooth things over with Babe.
Despite her feelings for Sid, she pushes him away. Back at the factory, the girls reassure Hines, offended by the slow down.

In Gladys' office, still jealous out of his mind, flings knives past Sid and Gladys, narrowly missing an paranoid Mr. Hasler

Dubuque is the county seat of Dubuque County, United States, located along the Mississippi River. In 2017, the population of Dubuque was 57,637; this city lies at the junction of Iowa and Wisconsin, a region locally known as the Tri-State Area. It serves as the main commercial, industrial and cultural center for the area. Geographically, it is part of the Driftless Area, a portion of North America that escaped all three phases of the Wisconsinian Glaciation, it is one of the few cities in Iowa with bluffs, a tourist destination featuring the city's unique architecture and river location. It is home to five institutions of higher education, learning. Dubuque has long been a center of manufacturing, but the economy grew and diversified to other areas in the first years of the 21st century. By 2005, the city led the state and the Midwest in job growth, ranking as the 22nd fastest-growing economy in the US. Alongside industry, the city has large health care, tourism and financial service sectors. Spain gained control of the Louisiana Territory west of the Mississippi River following the 1763 defeat of the French in the Seven Years' War.
The first permanent settler in what is now Dubuque was Quebecois pioneer Julien Dubuque, who arrived in 1785. In 1788, he received permission from the Spanish government and the local Meskwaki American Indians to mine the area's rich lead deposits. Control of Louisiana and Dubuque's mines shifted back to France in 1800 to the United States in 1803, following the Louisiana Purchase. Dubuque died in 1810; the Meskwaki continued to mine with full support of the U. S. Government until 1830, when the Meskwaki were illegally pushed out of the mine region by American prospectors; the current City of Dubuque was named after Julien Dubuque, settled at the southern end of a large flat plain adjacent to the Mississippi River. The city was chartered in 1833, located in unorganized territory of the United States; the region was designated as the Iowa Territory in 1838, was included in the newly created State of Iowa in 1846. After the lead resources were exhausted, the city became home to numerous industries.
Dubuque became a center for the timber industry because of its proximity to forests in Minnesota and Wisconsin, was dominated by various millworking businesses. Important were boat building and the railroad industry. In 1874, the Diamond Jo Line moved its company headquarters to Dubuque. Diamond Jo Line established a shipyard at Eagle Point in 1878. Just two years the company was the largest employer in Dubuque, putting 78 people to work, 75 of whom worked at the shipyard earning their collective $800–$1,000 per week in wages. Between 1860 and 1880, Dubuque was one of the 100 largest urban areas in the United States. Iowa's first church was built by Catholics in 1833. Since Iowans have followed a variety of religious traditions. Beginning in the mid-19th century and into the early 20th century, thousands of poor German and Irish Catholic immigrants came to the city to work in the manufacturing centers; the city's large Roman Catholic congregations led to its designation as the seat of the newly established Archdiocese of Dubuque.
Numerous convents and other religious institutions were built. The ethnic German and Irish descendants maintain a strong Catholic presence in the city. Nicholas E. Gonner, a Catholic immigrant from Pfaffenthal in Luxembourg, founded the Catholic Publishing Company of Dubuque, Iowa, his son Nicholas E. Gonner Jr. took over in 1892, editing two German language weeklies, an English language weekly, the Daily Tribune, the only Catholic daily newspaper published in the United States. Early in the 20th century, Dubuque was one of several sites of a brass era automobile company, Adams-Farwell. Subsequently, Dubuque grew and industrial activity remained its economic mainstay until the 1980s. During that time, a series of changes in manufacturing and the onset of the "Farm Crisis" led to a large decline in the sector and the city's economy as a whole. In the 1990s the economy diversified shifting away from heavy industry. Tourism, high technology, publishing are now among the largest and fastest-growing businesses.
Dubuque attracts well over 1,500,000 tourists annually, the number continues to increase. The city has encouraged development of the America's River Project's tourist attractions in the Port of Dubuque, the expansion of the city's colleges, the continued growth of shopping centers, such as Asbury Plaza. Dubuque has received a number of awards and recognition for its redevelopment this century. 2001-1st recipient of the Vision Iowa Grant, awarded $40 million to revitalize the Port of Dubuque. 2006-Urban Pioneer Award by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, in recognition of Dubuque's 20-year commitment to the revitalization of the city's center. 2006- Audrey Nealson Community Development Achievement Award, given by the National Community Development Association.

Elmore John Leonard Jr. was an American novelist, short story writer, screenwriter. His earliest novels, published in the 1950s, were Westerns, but he went on to specialize in crime fiction and suspense thrillers, many of which have been adapted into motion pictures.

Leonard received his first break in the fiction market during the 1950s publishing pulp Western novels, he had his first success in 1951 when Argosy published the short story "Trail of the Apaches." During the 1950s and early 1960s, he continued writing Westerns, publishing more than 30 short stories. He followed this with four other novels, his western novels had begun to portray his fondness for culturally diverse outsiders and underdogs. He developed his characters through dialogue, each defined by means of his speech. For many of his stories he favored New Mexico settings. Five of his westerns were turned into major movies before 1972: The Tall T, 3:10 to Yuma, Valdez Is Coming, Joe Kidd. In 1969 his first crime story titled. Leonard was different from the well-known names writing in this genre, such as Raymond Chandler or any of the other famous noir writers – no melodrama and pessimism, but more interested in his characters and in realistic dialogue.
The stories were located in Detroit, but apart from his favorite setting he liked to play his books in South Florida. “La Brava” a story from there published 1983 was the reason for a New York Times review, in which Leonard moved from a mystery suspense writer into a novelist. His next book, a Atlantic City gambling story published in 1985 and titled “Glitz,” was his breakout in the crime genre, it spent 16 weeks on The New York Times Bestseller list. Other crime novels that followed were all best sellers, as well. In his review of “Glitz”, Stephen King placed him in the same company as John MacDonald, Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, but Leonard felt more influenced by Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck.

At the time of his death his novels had sold tens of millions of copies. Among film adaptations of his work are Jackie Brown, a "homage to the author’s trademark rhythm and pace". Nearly thirty movies were made from Leonard's novels, but for some critics his special style worked only in print, he married Beverly Clare Cline in 1949, they had five children together—three daughters and two sons—before divorcing in 1977. His second marriage in 1979, to Joan Leanne Lancaster, ended with her death in 1993; that same year, he married Christine Kent, they divorced in 2012.

He was 87 years old. Leonard is survived by his five children, 13 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren. Commended by critics for his gritty realism and strong dialogue, Leonard sometimes took liberties with grammar in the interest of speeding the story along. In his essay "Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing" he said: "My most important rule is one that sums up the 10: If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it." He hinted: "I try to leave out the parts that readers tend to skip."Elmore Leonard has been called "the Dickens of Detroit" because of his intimate portraits of people from that city, though he said, "If I lived i
New Hampshire is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. It is bordered by Massachusetts to the south, Vermont to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Canadian province of Quebec to the north. New Hampshire is the 10th least populous of the 50 states. Concord is the state capital, it is personal income taxed at either the state or local level. The New Hampshire primary is the first primary in the U. S. presidential election cycle. Its license plates carry the state motto, "Live Free or Die"; the state's nickname, "The Granite State", refers to its extensive granite quarries. In January 1776, it became the first of the British North American colonies to establish a government independent of the Kingdom of Great Britain's authority, it was the first to establish its own state constitution. Six months it became one of the original 13 colonies that signed the United States Declaration of Independence, in June 1788 it was the ninth state to ratify the United States Constitution, bringing that document into effect.
New Hampshire was a major center for textile manufacturing and papermaking, with Amoskeag Manufacturing Company in Manchester at one time being the largest cotton textile plant in the world. Numerous mills were located along various rivers in the state the Merrimack and Connecticut rivers. Many French Canadians migrated to New Hampshire to work the mills in the late 19th and early 20th century. Manufacturing centers such as Manchester and Berlin were hit hard in the 1930s–1940s, as major manufacturing industries left New England and moved to the southern United States or overseas, reflecting nationwide trends. In the 1950s and 1960s, defense contractors moved into many of the former mills, such as Sanders Associates in Nashua, the population of southern New Hampshire surged beginning in the 1980s as major highways connected the region to Greater Boston and established several bedroom communities in the state. With some of the largest ski mountains on the East Coast, New Hampshire's major recreational attractions include skiing and other winter sports and mountaineering, observing the fall foliage, summer cottages along many lakes and the seacoast, motor sports at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Motorcycle Week, a popular motorcycle rally held in Weirs Beach in Laconia in June.

New Hampshire has the shortest ocean coastline of any U. S. coastal state, with a length of 18 miles, sometimes measured as only 13 miles. New Hampshire was home to the rock formation called the Old Man of the Mountain, a face-like profile in Franconia Notch, until the formation disintegrated in May 2003; the White Mountains range in New Hampshire spans the north-central portion of the state, with Mount Washington the tallest in the northeastern U. S. – site of the second-highest wind speed recorded – and other mountains like Mount Madison and Mount Adams surrounding it. With hurricane-force winds every third day on average, over 100 recorded deaths among visitors, conspicuous krumholtz, the climate on the upper reaches of Mount Washington has inspired the weather observatory on the peak to claim that the area has the "World's Worst Weather". In the flatter southwest corner of New Hampshire, the landmark Mount Monadnock has given its name to a class of earth-forms – a monadnock – signifying, in geomorphology, any isolated resistant peak rising from a less resistant eroded plain.
Major rivers include the 110-mile Merrimack River, which bisects the lower half of the state north–south and ends up in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Its tributaries include the Contoocook River, Pemigewasset River, Winnipesaukee River; the 410-mile Connecticut River, which starts at New Hampshire's Connecticut Lakes and flows south to Connecticut, defines the western border with Vermont. The state border is not in the center of that river, as is the case, but at the low-water mark on the Vermont side. Only one town – Pittsburg – shares a land border with the st

Say, Darling is a three-act comic play by Abe Burrows and Richard and Marian Bissell about the creation of a Broadway musical. Although the play featured nine original songs with lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and music by Jule Styne, all of the songs were presented as either rehearsal or audition material and not as the thoughts or feelings of the characters; the original 1957 Broadway production featured only two pianos, but RCA Victor released a orchestrated original cast recording of the score, leading many to conclude that Say, Darling was a musical. In a case of art imitating life not once, but twice, the show is an adaptation of Richard Bissell's semi-autobiographical novel of the same name which chronicled his experience adapting his novel 7½ Cents for The Pajama Game, making it in essence a play of a book about a musical adaptation of a book, it focuses on Jack Jordan, brought to Broadway to help develop his best-seller into a musical for leading lady Irene Lovelle. His journey provides him - and the audience - with an education about what goes on behind-the scenes on the Great White Way, from auditions to rehearsals to rewrites in hotel rooms to feuds among cast members, all under the watchful eye of veteran stage producer/director Richard Hackett and a young fledgling co-producer, Ted Snow, whose financial acumen outweighs his show business savvy.
Because of their similar physical appearance, actor Robert Morse was thought to be imitating producer Harold Prince, who had co-produced The Pajama Game. The Broadway production, directed by Burrows and choreographed by Matt Mattox, opened on April 3, 1958 at the ANTA Playhouse, transferring to the Martin Beck Theatre for the last five weeks of its 332-performance run. In addition to David Wayne as Jack Jordan, Vivian Blaine as Irene Lovelle, Robert Morse as Ted Snow, the cast included Johnny Desmond, Jerome Cowan, Horace McMahon, Constance Ford. Eddie Albert replaced Wayne in the run. Appearing in small roles as chorus performers were Elliott Gould and Virginia Martin. Morse was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play and won the Theatre World Award for his performance; the play was revived Off-Broadway at the West End Theatre in New York City for 16 performances in May through June 1996 under the direction of Robert Armin. An original cast recording was released by RCA Victor with orchestrations and musical direction by Sid Ramin.
The 2008 CD release on DRG Records was re-edited from the first-generation master recording and interpolated five dialogue lead-ins that were not included on the 1958 LP release. The "long-lost" Robert Morse dialogue was not included. Say, Darling at the Internet Broadway Database
