Diogenes Smith’s contest to find the most honest man has the town in an uproar. Not only to be found as the most honest person, but in suspicion over who the secret deputies are. It has also been revealed that Diogenes needs a new printing shop to publish his pamphlets Lum and Abner will be letting him set up shop in their feed room. Our friends also talk about a few of the good deeds they have planned. Cedric enters, and being suspected as a secret deputy, Lum and Abner butter him up. Do they have a handle on winning the prize? Listen and enjoy the gossip at the town hypocrits as they all cast off their usual ways to be nice to each other. Will Diogenes and his deputies see through all the false kindness? What is the behavior that leads Lum and Abner to believe that Cedric is a deputy, and will it cost them losing the store?
