After the dramatic, and mysterious kidnap of Cedric from the wedding altar, talk in the Jot Em Down store turns to a letter from Mousey Gray. How is the mild mannered man handling life in Army training? Just things like knitting sweaters for his woman in his spare time, that’s all.
Abner returns to the topic of wondering what happened with Cedric. If that miss ‘W’ was strong enough to overpower him, and haul him out of the chapel, might they have eloped by now? Conversation drifts into the topic of rationing, and being responsible for not wasting resources.
A phone call is from Ulysses S Quincey to arrange to have the next meeting of the Golden Era Discussion Club elsewhere. Cedric surprises Lum and Abner. Wonderful world! He shares the secret of his kidnapping, and the prank his friends pulled on him with the fake love notes from miss ‘W’. It still doesn’t get him out of his engagement to Winifred Redfield.
