For the business, they are in competition with the Pixley Hotel, which may have an elevator and telephones, but doesn't have Kate's home cooking. To be on the safe side, Kate decides to do a face lift of the hotel's rooms before the convention organizer's inspection, with Uncle Joe to do much of the work. Kate also receives notice of a property tax increase of $6, the amount about which Kate is relieved but Uncle Joe is livid, although he states he is angry about the increase on principle. Unknown to Kate, Uncle Joe writes a scathing letter to the tax review board demanding the taxes be lowered. Problems ensue not only for Uncle Joe, but Kate when Uncle Joe confuses the visit by the convention organizer, Mr. Forbes, with the visit by J.C. Albright, the chair of the tax review board, to who Uncle Joe wants to make the hotel look as shabby and run-down as possible to justify the tax decrease. Written by Huggo See less
