Characters:
Louella Parkins; Buzzy Brown
Synopsis:
Louella Parkins was the star of the Cobourne debate team, and they were off to Swanton for the State Championships. Last year, Louella had dated Buzzy Brown, captain of the Swanton team, and had fought hard to not fall in love with him. But when she saw him again, taller and even more handsome and manly, she couldn't help but swoon. Buzzy and she went to dinner, then bowling, and as he took her back to the dorm she asked why he looked so glum. He explained that he was an orphan, being raised by his uncle. After the loss to Cobourne the year before, he was told that if he didn't win the debate this year he would have to get a scholarship on his own if he wanted to go to law school. Even though he told Louella that both had to try hard to win, and it wouldn't matter, she couldn't get that out of her mind, until she heard whispering from the audience that Buzzy had used her; that it was just a story. Flipping the switch, she won the debate. Returning home, though, she learned that Buzzy had told her the truth and his uncle was making him go to work rather than go to college. Louella rushed to the train to Swanton and used all her skills to convince his uncle to support Buzzy, and he agreed as long as Louella would be there at Buzzy's side.

Sylvia Landon; Jerry Mix; Principal Landon
Synopsis:
Sylvia Landon's father was the school principal and made a point of picking out her daughter's dates. Jerry Mix, the star football player was kept from Sylvia because of his academic record, but Nat Hawthorne, the boy Sylvia's father chose, was as exciting as watching paint dry. When the coach went to Principal Landon asking that Jerry be allowed to play in the big game, the principal told Jerry he had to pass his history exam or sit the game out. Sylvia offered to tutor Jerry, and he passed the exam with flying colors. When Jerry asked her out this time, she accepted, ignoring her father, insisting that they go to the Crazy Nook, a night club her father had declared off limits to high school students. Sylvia and Jerry took the bus to the Crazy Nook, where the food was good and the music mellow. Even so, her father was arranging for the police to raid the club, and when they did Jerry got Sylvia to freedom before turning to slow down the police. When Jerry was expelled, Sylvia went to confess to her father. After taking him to the club, and showing him that nothing illegal happened there, he forgave Jerry and rescinded the expulsion. As the term ended, the team won, Jerry's grades were better and he and Sylvia became a happy couple.
