Storyline

Oliver races over some new soil samples for the university to analyze after learning his first batch was destroyed in shipping. Seeing an opportunity to get Oliver to give up farming, his mother spikes the dirt with items from her cosmetics bag. Eunice gets her comeuppance when uncouth Joe Carson shows up to woo her with an action-packed evening on the town: a poker game at the Elks lodge. Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>
