Lum and Abner – Broken Down Circus Comes To Pine Ridge. (350308) Horlicks: Recommended by doctors to help develop strong bodies and teeth for children. Carlton Bricker reminds listeners that the flashlight factories are still working hard too send out all the promotional flashlights to those who requested them.
In the Jotem Down Store, Dick Huttleston talks to Lum about how business is going. Cedric and Abner are out back, tending to all the livestock he has traded for. Meanwhile, Lum and Dick talk about the futility of operating his business by bartering.
Abner’s merchandise is becoming depleted, his stores of animal feed are going to feed his livestock, and purveyors won’t sell to him without cash. Talk turns to the circus that just came to town. They are looking for credit to meet expenses, but are being turned down by all the usual sources. Even Dick and Lum turned them away.
Cedric pops in to tell how busy he is with building animal pens. Abner finally arrives to tell of his latest business deal. He is providing groceries and food to the circus. Maybe not a smart business decision, but as a security he has made them mortgage the circus animals to him.
Horlick drama: A man has trouble waking up and his wife suggests he might get a better rest if he had taken some hot malted milk the night before. Horlick’s the wonder drug strikes again!
