Swearing off any line of work he knows nothing about, Lum is taking possession of a barber chair he swapped from Mose Moots. Today, we find the gents debating on how to get the heavy chair from the barber shop to the store. Will Cedric and his car be sturdy enough for the job? The poor boy is tired from working at the defense plant.
Lum is willing to give Cedric shaves, and hair cuts for life. Abner thinks the whole idea is just silly. Abner is owner of the store, but Lum makes him the same deal as with the diamond business, sharing space and percentages of profits. Does Lum have any clientele lined up? Everybody he names all go to Mose.
Does Lum really think he can deliver better service at lower prices? Lum has spent hours watching Mose. All you gotta do is talk steady. He feels that he comes by it by instinct, no need for expensive barbering colleges. Abner gets confused, and wonders what Lum has to do with bird dogs. Will he barber and shave the birds, or the dogs? What ever happened to Cedric and that chair? Why is he carrying it past the store?
