The breezy weather has been a set back for the observatory, and Professor Sloane. Today, Lum and Abner pay him a visit to cheer him up. The high strung teacher shares about an astronomy book that he has been reading.
As the gents bring flowers, or tell a joke, or talk about the ailments of other, deceased citezens in Pine Ridge, the professor begins to worry. Should Professor Sloane start to worry about his mortality?
The wonderful feeling of health soon turns into hypochondria, and worries of certain doom. Good thing they showed up to cheer up the teacher. The gents may have saved his life, making him aware of all the dangers he might narrowly be missing.
