Grandpap is relieved to learn from Abner that Lum really didn’t want to build that big office building for Doc Withers. Cedric is back, but not for shoe shopping today. He has been having trouble with a juicer.
Lum wants to make preparations for the anticipated arrival of Doc Withers, vetinarian extraordinaire. Will there be a famous Lum speech? Grandpap assures Lum and Abner that the Doc is a simple man who doesn’t throw his smartness into your face.
The welcoming celebration is described further as Lum tells how the doc will be paraded around town, meeting city officials, welcomed by the local Boy Scout troop, and more. Signs and banners are prepared for the occasion. Cedric is back again, and we learn more about his troubles over the orange juicer.
