Transient workers are pouring into Sleepy Lagoon by the thousands to work in the local defense factories, with no means of finding good clean fun in a town that has been moribund as its name for years past. They have been squandering their earnings and going into debt at the gambling houses, hostesses-provided dance halls and saloons that have opened up overnight.
