Stopping in for a trim,Gildy talks with Floyd the barber. What’s the latest word from the campaign trail? Judge Hooker puts down the copy of Esquire long enough to read the recent news headlines. Has Floyd betrayed Gildy, and gone to the Tewilliger camp?
At home, Gildy tells the family about his new headquarters in the room above Floyd’s barber shop. Leroy calls a meeting of his friends. The Commandos debate over who should use their new flame thrower first. The blow torch debate flames out when Gildy presents his own mission. What will his new recruits be doing?
Leaving no stone unturned, Gildy checks in at his headquarters. Has anyone in town popped in for information about the race for mayor? Peavey and Judge Hooker give a report on the women’s demographic. Floyd enters to get the boys organized… he even brought a deck of cards to help the chore along. A gig to sing at the Kiwanis club could win a lot of votes. The Jolly Boys work out some lyrics, and campaign song for Gildersleeves. The singing is brought to a stop when we learn that Leroy has been arrested. Is there political undercurrents to the arrest? Is Chief Gates in the Tewilliger camp? Will he show his loyalty by lending voice to the barbershop campaign song?
