Abner has walked out after feeling that Lum should let him be manager of the new hotel. Today Dick Huddleston talks with Lum about the happenings of the kjob position. Can Dick talk sense to Abner?
Waiting for Abner to show up, Lum and Dick discuss the first guest, and Lum’s fancy clothes he has on to make his first impression. Dick ducks out as Abner arrives, but will he soften up as Lum tries to talk about old times?
Their mushy compliments nearly lead to a fight, but Lum decides to use a secret ballot to elect the new manager. Cedric enters to lend a hand to the voting process. Somehow Lum demands a recount until he is sure to get elected. Will Abner stand for such tactics?
