Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for April 18, 1974
Boy: Ms. Caucus, is being on a waiting list really such a bad thing? Ellie: Oh, yes! It's almost as bad as being rejected! You see, the anxiety builds up and up, and the pressure becomes unbearable as you wait day after day after day, wondering if you have any future, any career, anything left to live for! Fortunately, some women have what it takes to persevere, to hang on, to hold their heads high no matter what the outcome!! Ms. Caucus is one such woman! Children: YEA!! Ellie: You gotta believe!
