In the Jot ‘Em Down store Abner tells Cedric about the latest news about Lum helping with a housing problem. He has been working with the Lady’s Aid to help a family with a large number of kids to find a place to stay. Cedric has his own updates to share, and the two talk about radio show specials.
As Cedric tries to decide on what kind of book cover to buy for school, Lum enters. He’s just wore to a frazzle, after he has promised to get the Childress family a place, but when his efforts have fallen through, he has let them move in with him.
The long time bachelor tells about the noise and chaos that has come to his quiet home. It’s enough to drive a man stark raving mad crazy insane. What can Lum do to get his privacy back, and find a place of their own for his house guests? Will Lum resort to building them a house to get them out of his place?
