Lum and Abner – Lum Gives Speech On Honesty At The Schoolhouse. 350917. Horlicks: carlton Brickert warns against the sales pitch of a druggist who might sway your decision away from the original malted milk product. Accept only the best.
Down in Pine Ridge, Abner and Dick talk about the stranger who came to town to buy just a hundred dollars of stock in the mine. He only asked questions of Lum about the mine after the purchase. What was that all about, and what does it mean?
Lum has been riding with Cedric in the rolling store, and making passes by the school house to have a look at Evelina, his gal and school teacher who just got back in town. Lum has finished for the day, and now talks with Dick and Abner about his invitation to deliver a speech to the school kids. Lum shares his speech, or at least some of his notes. Abner isn’t too eager to hear Lums same old speech, but at Dick’s request he begins anyway.
As Lum waxes eloquent, Abner heckles him a little. Though Abner finishes most of Lums lines for him, Lum has made some changes to his usual speach to make it a speech about honesty, being upright, and of good character.
Just then, Mr Donahue is back and after identifying himself as a federal agent, wants to talk with Lum privately. He has bad news that he has to place Lum under arrest for violating the Blue Sky Laws.
