Lum and Abner – Abner Has Not Been Seen At All. 350801. Horlicks: One of the world’s best known infant foods. Proclaimed by doctors, and full of nutrients to build strong bodies that’s also easy to digest. It’s equally fine for the nursing mother as it is for the infant.
In Pine Ridge, Squire had hoped that Abner would invest his money from the sale of the Jottem Down store into the silver mine. Lately, Abner has been abducted. Today Lum is practicing his singing. Fortunately he is interupted by the phone. It’s Lizabeth, and she wants to know if there’s any word on Abner. Dick comes in to take over the phone. Apparently he’s either with Squire, or Squire knows where Abner is. Where’s Squire?
The Jottem Down store is closed up, and nobody around. The two friends recap the events of Abner, and his refusal to buy into the silver mine stock. Lum defends the mine, since he’s pretty deep into the investment, but Dick has no place for Squire or his involvements. After more talk about the situation behind the sale of the store, worry sets in that something bad might have been done to Abner. As conclusions are being jumped to, Squire enters, and both Dick and Lum confront him about what he did with Abner.
Squire is awfully confident, even after the threats to bring the sheriff out after him, but when Dick actually gets on the phone to call the cops, Squire begins to worry.
Horlicks: It’s easy to digest, doesn’t spoil the apetite. Keep a pitcher in the refridgerator for a tasty treat any time.
