Rose Marie told Winston that she sold her baby to a man named Thomas McMahon after her young husband died of polio and left her penniless. Rose Marie had met McMahon at a charity clinic, and he offered to pay her expenses if she'd give him the baby after it was born. Rose Marie had written a le tter to her husband's parents asking f or help, but McMahon promised to mail the letter and apparently didn't. When her in-laws didn't respond, Rose Marie agreed to McMahon's plan. Jack told Winston that he wants to assume Harry's position at Lane Trucking, but Winston informed Jack that the company is being liquidated to pay Harry's debts. Winston offered Jack a job at Grimsley, but a belligerent Jack refused. Winston convinced Jack to accept a temporary two-week job over the stateline in Hillsdale. Later, Jack told Betty-Jean that the Hillsdale job is a perfect opportunity for them to elope. Betty-Jean was reticent about running away. Jack warned Betty-Jean that if she didn't meet him after graduation to runaway, she'd never see him again.
