This is a centuries old problem that no one has had any luck in solving; but the player becomes the first person to find the truth (which involves finding the only surviving dwarf).

* In ''My Sister Eileen'' and TheMusical ''Wonderful Town'', Chic Clark, Eileen's reporter friend, tells her that the city editor of his paper may have a job lined up for her sister Ruth, who is desperately hunting for a writing job. When Ruth gets the call and hears that the city editor wants her to cover a boatload of coffee millionaires from Brazil who have just landed on a Brooklyn pier, she rushes off in great excitement after a few hurried preparations. Soon after, Chic pays an unexpected visit to Eileen, but she remains concerned about her sister and tells him she has to change for a dinner date she has lined up. He objects: "Excuse ya? After I went and fixed it to get ya alone without that eagle-eyed sister of yours around!"

As it turns out, Ruth does find a bunch of Brazilian admirals in Brooklyn, but they speak no English and follow her all the way back to her apartment.
