As Lum and Abner argue over their splitting the hotel after their latest rift, Cedric tries to mediate but is only becoming confused. Dick Huddleston enters to get an earful from the two former friends who aren’t talking to each other. Will the bickering run off all the guests?
Not only are the rooms divided up, but the dining room is operating under two chefs and management. Abner is caught spying on Lum as he tells Dick about the division, and a little about his gangster guests.
It’s time for Lum to eavesdrop on Abner as he tries to steal away some of Lum’s guests with lower rates. Will Lum stand for the price war? If he lets Abner get away with it, their profitable hotel business could be in danger of collapsing.
