A red Herring epsiode-with two obvious suspects who did not kill the victium!
Poor Mrs Harrison is in quite a bind :
1) If she stays with him-they stay in poverty due to his stupid and stubborn refusal to become an engineer and remain a teacher at a poor school!
2} if she divorces her husband-she and the child will probably get little to no alimony conserering that her husband cant even keep up household payments-let alone medical expiences for their daugther!
She has only two hopes for her daugther:
3} constitute divorce proceedings to force her husband to realize that he has to give up teaching and become an enginner to support his wife and child
4} Constitute divorce proceedings and take her child and live on her family farm and find someone who can support her child with a well paying job.
1} is growing intolerable for her and her child sake
2) leaving her worse off than before
3) Her husband is too stubborn to quit his low paying teaching job
4) Her last and best hope
