Agreeing to help Lum, Squire Skimp will talk to Mable Melrose about not claiming her prize of the war bond drive. Namely, marrying Lum. In the Jot Em Down store today, the phone rings off the hook, with curious people who want the latest gossip of Lum’s marriage arrangements.
Maybe they could tell people that Mabel took one look at Lum, and called the whole thing off. Lum agrees… hey wait… does that mean he’s not much of a catch? How could any woman in her right mind turn down such a prize as Lum! Will Abner think up another contest idea to solve the problem?
Joining the idea brainstorming session, grandpap helps think up ways to auction off artifacts from Lum’s mystery wedding as war bond fund raisers. Details of the mystery wedding ends when Squire enters with news from Mable. She has a good case against him, but might be bought out… if Lum has that much money.
