Buster is frustrated at hearing so much about this Milford Avery Spears character, but never able to meet him. He’s also upset over the way aunt Charity grieves to have him back, and return things to normal. In fact, it makes Buster fighting mad as he storms out to search for Milford, and whip him within an inch of his life.
Abner wishes they could do something to help Charity feel better. Meanwhile, a phone call to Cedric leads to a pitch to spend money wisely. Not so much in pinball machines and frivolities, and more for war bonds. Abner isn’t sure, since Buster thinks Charity is touched in the head, and is the sister of the mysterious Milford.
What if Lum can get Buster and Charity together? Will they fall in love all over again? Lum thinks his expertise in the matters of love will do the trick. Before the plan gets far, Lum gets a phone call to bail Buster out of jail.
