Postum, even more economical than coffee, and it doesn’t give you the restless affects that caffeinated drinks have. Wake up fit and rested.
Now lets see what’s going on down in Pine Ridge. Previously Lum and Abner have discovered the extent that Squire’s contract covered, and the demands of their income the contracts made. Lum has developed his own little scheme to get Squire to buy their contracts back. The deal seems to have gone through, the contracts are no longer in affect, Abner still has his house and property, and Squire has bought oil rights on land that has no oil.
Lum tries to explain the doings with the metaphor of a checker game, but Abner is confused and thinks it’s just silly. Movie productions come to a halt as Lum has to wait for his film to be developed. Lum also shares his technique of overacting, and cene stealing so he ends up with the most attention from the audience.
Grandpap enters with the big news that Squire has struck oil on Abner’s land. Now Squire is selling stock in town in his new oil well. Grandpap is convinced that Squire’s well is real, but of course Lum and Abner just wink to themselves. Squire enters, and is so convincing in his sales pitch that Abner doesn’t want to be left out of any deals since it was found on his land. Has their deal with Squire backfired on them?
Postum, fights against nervousness, jumpiness, and irritability. If coffee has been keeping you awake, switch to Postum. Lou Crosby speaking for CBS.
