After recent testimony in the trial of Cedric, things aren’t going well for him. Today, we join Lum and Abner, who are wore to a frazzle over the ordeal. They summarize how the case has gotten to where it is, and the confusion over the mistaken proposal.
Will Cedric lose the case, and be forced to pay $1k? Will the gents kick in some cash, since they had a part in the matter? The telephone offers a distraction when Ulysses S Quincey tries to get out of having the next discussion club meeting at his place. As the case is further discussed, Ulysses keeps phoning back to bring up more excuses. A clogged stove pipe, no ladder, and more.
Will Cedric’s friends stand up for him? It was their prank that got things started for Cedric. We never seem to find that out, or whether Wimpy takes the stand. Instead, we learn the secret of the clogged stovepipe at Ulysses place.
