The Wonderful World apartments, a project designed to house every family in Pine Ridge, has been going over like Gangbusters with folks in town. Lum goes over the blueprints and floor plans with Abner. He has a brilliant ideaa of putting the attic under the apartments, to make it easier for people to store their extra thhings. Huh? Then where’s the basement going to be? It’s the floor in the middle, of course. Just listen to see if you can figure out Lum’s logic.
With all the modern conveniences, Cedric enters to explain that he wants his outfitted with a pinball machine. The trouble is, he isn’t qualified to live in the apartments. The idea is for land owners to swap their property for their place in the apartment, and Cedric doesn’t own any land. What can he do about that? Isn’t there any loopholes for him? He owns a library card after all. Cedric leaves to study up on a solution to his problem, and Lum continues to explain his floor plan to Abner. Lower floor attics, first floor stores and businesses, a post office, a basement in the middle. It makes you wonder where the people will live at.
The crazy description is finally interupted with Cedric, and his idea to win his place in the new apartment building.
