Seeing the poverty-stricken old age of jazz great Binky reinforces her concern. Skeets agrees to audition for a secure job with Hank’s orchestra but fails to show up. Mindy calls him a “music hobo” and they break up. She gets a teaching job and tries to forget him. Skeets reappears: he took the orchestra job and now they can be married.

Characters
Corinne; Stewart Reed; Corinne's father; Corinne's mother
Synopsis
Corinne falls for fellow college student Stewart, but he’s something of a radical who works for the campus newspaper and clashes with the dean. Corinne’s parents disapprove of Stewart’s trouble-making, since “a reformer usually has a disturbed personality!” However, Stewart and Corinne find an old newspaper article which proves Corinne’s parents were also “reformers” in their day: her mother was arrested as a suffragette and her father was arrested trying to help her. Corinne’s parents admit that people can “settle down” after college, and approve their daughter’s choice of a boyfriend.
