Storyline

Hank Thackery is the owner/operator of the rival hotel to the Shady Rest, the Pixley House. Hank's mentality is all about modernization. As such, he proposes to set up a jitney service between Pixley and Hooterville as an alternative to the Cannonball. He bets Joe and the Cannonball to a race from Pixley to Hooterville, the loser to act as the bellboy at the other's hotel for a month. In addition, Hank convinces the county commissioner that the Cannonball's fate should depend on the outcome of the race. If the Cannonball ceases to operate, that means that the Shady Rest goes out of business. Part of Joe's problem in winning the race is getting Wendell into fighting mentality, rather than be his usual helpful self at the expense of speed in operating the train. But both Hank and Joe figure that some unconventional operating tactics and some sabotage are fair game all in the name of battle to the death of the jitney or the Cannonball. Written by Huggo
