The new dentist is getting settled in, and has gone to start looking at the teeth of the students at the school house. Mousey is seen in town, and pops in to tell the gents what he has been up to in the Army. His time is limited, and he needs to meet up with his wife Gussie before he has to leave again.
Eager to hear everything he has to say, Lum and Abner begin telling Mousey about all the latest developments in town. The new dentist, grandpap’s amnesia and disappearance to Toledo, and more. When will they ever let Mousey get in a word to tell how he’s been doing?
Lum goes on a rant to tell Abner the importance of buying war bonds to support Mousey and the troops while he’s gone. He maps out a plan to ship the troops across the pond to fight the enemy in Europe.
Abner is confused and thinks the pond is the mill pond. If it is, Lum needs to draw it more accurately. And those marks to indicate friendly and enemy troops, Abner wants to warn people about enemy in the area. Why ship the troops use boats when they can easily walk around the pond? Mousey’s time is soon up, and its a good thing he got to tell the gents all about his Army life.
