The Argument.

In 1950 the world is swayed by the firm hand of woman. Man has been relegated to his well-merited position of inferiority. But some notorious k-nuts from Wellington have escaped to the continent of Atlantis, where they still preserve their pristine superiority. Hearing of this the women embark in their 1950 aeroplane the "Wowserina," and descend like a plague on the ungodly in Atlantis. For subsequent events, and woman's final metamorphosis to her original status, see Act III., being a parody of "The Taming of the Shrew."
