Lum and Abner – Stockholders Want Their Money Back. 350903. Horlicks: Are there any vacationers who haven’t learned of Horlicks tablets? Try some today to get the most out of your vacation to ward off hunger and fatigue, keep up energy, or just to have a tasty treat.
Now, let’s see what’s happening down in Pine Ridge. After Lum has gone into hiding over the scandal with the silver mine, a letter has gotten out to try to divert attention from where he is hiding, and to explain himself, but it exposes his hide out instead. Dick Huttleston has found Lum and is talking to him about the irate stockholders, and why Lum is being blamed for the mess that Squire caused.
Lum has had the chance to show himself on the streets and tells how he has no friends in town. Is there a way to reimburse the stockholders? When Squire bailed out, he left Lum as President, and sole person to hold the bag and be responsible. Abner stops in to tell about the rolling store. Sales are in a big slump that all started when the town turned against Lum.
Abner sticks by his friend, even if it means the rolling store goes bankrupt over the boycott. Lum gets Abner confused over the saying about a barking dog not biting. Lum tries to think of a way to get on the good side of the stockholders, but Abner just can’t let go of the idea of barking dogs, and biting.
Lum thinks if he can do something heroic, like rescuing somebody, the town will like him again. Maybe if they pretend to rescue Abner from kidnappers?
