Lum and Abner – Squire Will Take Hogs To Chicago. 350515 Carlton Bricker reminds listeners of the limited supply of photos of Lum and Abner, and how to send for one.
Down in Pine Ridge Grandpap plays checkers with Abner, and argue over their playing ability, and who is cheating who. Lum comes back to break up the game, and put them back to work.
Lum has been counting his hogs, but with the chain letters finally slowing down, there’s a problem of having enough feed.
