Curious happenings over the baby, and Squire’s change of mind have the gents baffled. Today, Abner and grandpap play checkers, and discuss the matter of Mr Finnely, and signing the store over to Squire to settle legal debts.
As Lum inventories the stock in the feed room, Cedric enters to collect junk for a scrap drive. Abner thinks the government is just making up the need for scrap iron, copper, and other metal, but Lum tells otherwise. In the process, Cedric spills the beans on a secret over at Squire’s house. What does it mean for the mystery of the baby?
Squire enters, but Lum knows he has been lying to them. Is Squire’s game of tricks up?
