Carlton Bricker suggests to all the boys and girls to hurry and send in for your flashlight, and how to do it.
When we last saw our friends, Lum had been arrested, and put in jail. Dick Huttleston covered bail, and now Lum visits him in Dick’s general store. Lum spills the beans to Dick, but wants to keep it secret about the ordeal of Abner’s fake broken arms. For now Lum still has the check that he went to jail for, and is keeping it safe until he can return it.
Dick, besides being the friendly rival store owner in town, is also postmaster of Pine Ridge. He gives Lum the mailed requests for flashlights that have arrived by the thousands.
Lum is filled in about Abner’s campaining activity. Running around with his arms still in slings to get the pity vote. Lum gets on the party line to put his own plug to encourage folks to vote for him, and keep his status as president of the Jottem Down store when they reopen it. It looks like there’s going to be some good competition for president.
Carlton Bricker plugs the handy dandy tiny flashlights, and how to send in for one.
