Because rich businessman Chester Wallace (Alan Mowbray) has asked the simple man for inventions to help in the war efforts and Abner seems to have invented synthetic rubber, Lum and Abner go from their small town in Nebraska to Washington to present their invention - but at first Washington seems so overrun that they can't find a single bed to sleep in and end up being tricked into sleeping in a shopwindow. Then, at Wallace's office, they find a long line of people all waiting to present their inventions. So they spend their days on a parkbench, and wouldn't you know it, on the same parkbench where also some senarors spend their time (when out of senate). And soon enough, Lum and Abnergive the politicians invaluable advice from out of their experiences in their hick-town. Before long, the two of them become celebrities, and eventually, Chester Wallace, overburdened with undertalented inventors, asks their advice ... and suddenly they are able to present him Abner's synthetic rubber.

But at a press conference, when Abner is supposed to reproduce his rubber, he is hit on the head and loses his memory. So it's back to their hick town for Lum and Abner, abnd Wallace, anxious to get his synthetic rubber in order to win the war, and eventually, by another bump on the head, Abner finds his memory again - but then Wallace gets bumped on the head too ...

 

Mildly amusing comedy, that was, first and foremost, supposed to be World War II propaganda ... and as such it's - naturally - over-simüplistic, and often enough fails to hit its marks.
