    The complete title for the present work is as follows:
    Mrs. Jenkins caught Naughty Betty smoking just before dinner just before the high winds blew everything off the table which had been set up in the hallway prior to the Miss Dog America Contest (which Helen had won) but she couldn't catch her to spank her because of the gale (plus--she had to rush to the cupboard to protect her last remaining two cans of cream corn to keep them from being blown away).
