Beneath the title, the German text reads: "Du, Beate, mach jefälligst hier nich so’n Krach! Wenn du dir schon mal zur Demimong rechenst, denn benimm dir ooch darnach.” In rough dialect, this translates to "You, Beate, don't make such a racket here! If you're going to the Demimong [demi-monde], behave accordingly."

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
