Lum is taking a break from his duties as chef of Lumburgers in the Meadowlark restaurant. He talks with Doc Ben Withers about his busy life. He shares some of his telegrams from around the country with doc. Will it be as impressive as doc’s telegram from president Grover Cleveland? Not only are the telegrams from famous restaurants, but Lum may be on the verge of revolutionizing America’s eating habits.
Abner enters, but gets a little confused over the coconuts in the grove at the Coconut Grove.
Will Abner be impressed with the telegram from Grover Cleveland that Doc still tries to tell about, but hasn’t quite gotten his message out? More confusion reigns for Abner when a fellow in the hat business wants Lum’s recipe for use in the Brown Derby.
Getting his big chance to brag, Doc recounts in detail how and why he recieved his telegram. He even produces it to show off. This won’t be a let down, will it?
