Story Summary

While standing in a bus line one morning, Little Jim starts to sing. At first everyone is annoyed but over the coming days, they all start to join in. Soon the town is divided between the singers and anti-singers. Even though the singers are jailed for ordinance violations, the power of song wins the day.
