Celie in search of a husband

The caption reads: “Celie in search of a husband.”  Notice as well that Ab dates this cartoon on the front, so we know it was 4th October 1935. To save you all the trouble, I’ve looked up the date and discovered it was the week between Rosh Hashanah (New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement).  So perhaps at some point during New Year observances, Ab went AWOL and Celie tried to track him down at the shul.  What we don’t know is if Ab really is amongst the davening throng or why Celie had lost track of him.
