In the Jot ‘Em Down store today, Lum listens to Abner and the plight that the men face since their wives went on strike. The men of town have been living together in Abner’s cabin while the women sit in the comfort of their homes. In short, things aren’t looking good for the menfolk.
Abner gets confused over some of Lum’s figures of speech. Grandpap enters with the latest from the battlefront with the women. It’s enough to make Abner want to give up, and leave the men’s association.
