Annie is furious with the absent Jack. Len arranges an election meeting at the Mission. Ena books Annie in for a meeting at the Mission knowing that it will clash with Len's. Len feels that the Street is a slum and should be demolished. Annie and Len row over their meetings. Annie accuses Len of only standing through spite. He accuses her of being a mouthpiece for snotty women. Ena settles the argument by suggesting a joint debate - Len versus Annie.
