It appears that Abner’s daughter, little Pearl will be going off to train in the nurses corps soon. Today the gents keep up their discussion of the new and creative excuses that Ulesses S Quincey gives for not hosting the club meetings. An official looking envelop has arrived. Hmm.n. it looks kind of important. I wonder what it could be.
Lum tries to look over the important letter, while Abner talks on the phone to hear about the latest excuse. The questionnaire seems to ask a lot of things about their business. And that pesky Ulysses keeps calling. Should Abner keep hanging up on him like that?
The language on the form is confusing to Lum, but he does his best to make up the answers he thinks it asks for. Abner isn’t any help, not that a big business professional like Lum would sink to asking for help. Will Ulysses finally get through to the store? Will he actually agree to host the meeting?
