In Leave It To Blondie both Dagwood and Blondie write out a check for the Bumstead commitment to a new kid's summer camp for $100.00 each. That's twice what they pledged and it's really depleted their checking account balance.
But there's a possibility of ready cash as the head of the summer camp committee Eula Morgan is also sponsoring a local songwriting contest. Arthur Lake goes into the Bumstead family archives and has found an old song that Uncle Henry Bumstead wrote back in the day. Dagwood submits it as his own and he becomes one of three finalists in the contest.
Now personally I think it was a bit unfair for the contest organizers to ask for the songwriters to sing their own material. Dagwood wasn't exactly Crosby or Sinatra to begin with, but that cold he gets really doesn't help. After all did anyone ever ask Jerome Kern to sing his own material?
It all works out in the end and while Lake does not become the new Irving Berlin he closes a nice real estate deal for the J.C. Dithers Construction Company. That's all mixed in with the songwriting contest and you'll have to watch Leave It To Blondie to see how.
