Cedric has driven aunt Charity to the county seat for a beauty treatment, and today Lum and Abner talk about the expected date between grandpap and Charity. Abner has only had more trouble with his woman, when he manages to tell her the wrong thing in fending off her requests to look beautiful.
The gents also discuss ways the folks in Pine Ridge are taking advantage of pooling together in doing things in the county seat. All in the name of supporting the war, and saving on unnecessary trips. US Quincey enters with a bit of gossip. A strange woman has been lounging in a hammock, making sheep eyes at grandpap. Who could it be?
Is there some strumpet in town, hoping to get her hands on grandpap’s money? The gents discuss other instances of money grubbing women in town. Should they phone grandpap to warn him, and be true to Charity? Cedric arrives to reveal who that woman in the hammock really is.
