Clyde Otto Dobermann, old Heinrich (Dollar) Dobermann’s heretofore worthless hard-drinking son and sole heir, on the wagon on doctor’s orders, reviewing a misspent life the day after his fiftieth birthday, comes to the conclusion it’s high time he “did something.” Something worthwhile he’ll be remembered for. But what? An idea strikes him like lightening. It’s also high time Winatchee Falls did something to honor the Pretzell Brothers, the three chiropractors whose Chiropractic Clinic (locally known as The Chiro) put Winatchee Falls on the map. And The Chiro’s patients (they come from all over the Corn Belt and two Canadian provinces) keep the Dobermann Hotel at 85% of capacity. So honor them how? Well, a statue, what else? Clyde, all fired up, forms a committee. Raises funds. Hires an amoral sculptor who honed his marginal skills with the Depression Era Federal Arts Program. Overcomes labor problems and numerous other vicissitudes. And the statue is finally erected and officially unveiled at a Dedication Ceremony. But the timing is disastrous.
