When Ben Potts asks to hold the choir practice at his place, Ely is upset. He’s the leader of the group, and doesn’t take it well when he percieves others trying to take over. Patience takes to the phone lines to gossip over the change in practice locations. Ben has a surprise to share. What could it be? The choir meet to sing, Massa Don’t You Cry.
The choir members are thrilled at Ben’s new organ, and the sound it gives them when they practice… Everybody except for Ely. In throwing a fit, Ely gets hurt, but he doesn’t want to take the medicine his friends offer to make him feel better. Cliff and Marian sing, My Heart is Thine Alone.
After more friendly, petty bickering among the choir members, Cliff sings, Take Thou My Heart. Ely frets that he won’t be leader much longer, since Ben has his organ. Can Ben say anything to assure him of their friendship?
The choir sings, Jesus Sweetest Name I Know.
Moral of the story: Being thankful for friends.
Note: Didn’t Ely already get a new piano delivered to his house a few episodes back? What’s the worry over the new organ? What’s he going to do with a new organ, even if Ben is niuce enough to give it to him?
