With matters back to normal, after months of amnesia and other misadventures, the plan for a synthetic rubber plant are renewed. Lum tells that samples have been sent away for testing, and explains it to Abner. Together, they look at the plans for their factory layout.
With such a large operation, where will they build it? Lum figures they could attach it to the store… after buying up a few extra acres. Lum envisions his factory workers as one big happy family, who see the factory as their home.
Music will be piped in all day long, and medical care will be on site, in case a worker gets a scratch or something. Picnics on holidays, sack races, and prizes, Abner can’t wait to take part in a workplace like that. Unless Lum tasks him with responsibilities as an executive officer… like building gymnasiums for exercise. Abner gets confused about swinging wooden indians over his head… huh? Just listen, it’ll make sense. But will Abner still like Lum’s idea of keeping the workers happy?
