Synopsis:
Ellen had just started going to Baldwin Junior College, but her relationship with Tim had gotten serious. At the dormitory, she was introduced to Karen Marshek a beautiful exchange student from Switzerland. When Tim came over for their date, Ellen introduced her to Karen. But, when Tim offered to help Karen study American government, she had a bad feeling. Soon Tim came around less and less, until on a stroll Ellen saw Tim take Karen in his arms and kiss her. Her jealousy took over, and she told Tim that the only reason Karen was interested in him was to marry him and get American citizenship. Furious, Tim broke it off with Karen. Soon, at an assembly, it was announced that Karen had won first prize for her essay on "The Meaning of America" but she could barely accept the award after what Ellen had done to her. So much for truth and fair play. Astonished, Karen admits that she lied about Karen. Screaming, "how could you be so cruel?" Tim ran from the auditorium to find Karen, leaving Ellen to deal with her guilt and conscience.

Characters:
Maxine; Ralph Shore; Tom Jordan; Richard Worthington
Synopsis:
Even though Maxine was still in high school, she had planned out her life. She'd marry Ralph Shore. He'd become manager of the store and life would be perfect. The problem was that Ralph hated the store and wanted to be a gardener. Infuriated that he wanted to work in the dirt, Maxine broke off with Ralph. Later, when Tom Jordan called, she agreed to go out with him, and at the dance learned that Ralph was working at the Worthington estate in Elmdale. Deciding she had to see him again, Maxine took the train. On the trip, she witnessed a squabble between a couple and overheard the woman say, "If I want to be interested in my father's gardener, I will" and then she threw her engagement ring at the man. Thinking the woman was a Worthington and she was talking about Ralph, Maxine grabbed a cab at the train station and hurried to the estate hoping to beat the other girl there. Racing around a hair-pin bend as they approached the estate, the taxi and Worthington's car collided. Ralph ran out dragging Maxine from the car and after everything was explained, she and Ralph reconciled. Maxine realized that no one had the right to dictate what another person did with their life, and it was definitely more important that her husband be happy at his work.

Synopsis:
Norma had been in love with Jack Stevens since they began high school, but he only saw a plain and studious girl who got good grades. The only way she could get next to him was to tutor him in trigonometry. Realizing that her parents didn't want her to wear make-up or dress like the other girls she felt desperate in grabbing Jack's attention. So, when popular Carinna Williams offered to help her with boys, she agreed. But for that advice, Corinna wanted Norma to run her campaign for class secretary. Norma made wonderful posters for Corinna, all noticed by Tommy Johnson, who was running for class president. After the election, and Corinna's victory, Norma was furious when she found Corinna kidding Jack. Running home, she was greeted by a telephone call from Tommy asking her out. In response, her mother helped her with make-up, and her father sprang for a new gown. Norma looked great and was the wall flower no more.
