Jumping the gun on his accelerated education, Cedric has quit his defense plant job. He may be facing the draft. For now the gents watch the happy scholars on their way to school. Are they so happy because of their new school board president? Not if you ask Lum.
Lum is worried the young-uns are growing up differently, in a money mad society. He’s even more taken aback when his new ward, Mary wants to change her name already. What? She wants to get married? Well at least to change it so she can sit closer to a boy. Alphabetical seating arrangements you know.
Cedric the high school boy enters. He just finished his testing for the Armed Services, and is pleased with his high standing at being a liability to any of the services, and his 4F rating. Is this something his dad can fix for him as well?
There’s another problem that Caleb might fix. However, Cedric has it under control. He can’t wait to phone Mary to tell her about a problem that his dad can’t fix, but he can, and already did.
