A forthcoming reception for the hotel guests is being planned, proving to be a huge celebration. Food, dancing, decorations, and all things festive. Lum enters after going to greet Miss Emiline. Which girl will he take to the party, Miss Emiline or Trixie? He thinks he has a plan to take both women. A switchboard call pulls Abner away on his bellhop duties. Dick and Lum get a laugh out of his pride in the new kjob. What made him decide to be bellhop, rather than insisting on being manager as he did in the previous episode?
Lum and Dick review the guest list, noticing they are all from the Chicago area.
Abner returns, and tells about some scandalous behavior in the rooms. Guests playing poker for money, and backtalk from a child towards her parents. Even Cedric has a report of unusual happenings. Sounds like gangster activity to me. I wonder how long it’ll take for Lum and Abner to figure it all out?
