To help support her family, Irene becomes Mrs. Parker’s maid. She feels disrespected by the Parkers, and even milkman Tom thinks she’s fair game for his lechery. Irene falls for Reed, the boyfriend of Laura, the daughter of her employer, but Laura says Reed told her he was just trifling with a servant’s affections. Irene quits and goes home to the farm. Reed shows up and says Laura lied: he really loves Irene.

Synopsis
Airline hostess Louise has a crush on pilot Jim. They’re stranded in a mountain cabin one night and are overcome by passion. Afterwards, Jim is cool towards her, but when she’s injured during a flight he admits he loves her, even though her actions in the cabin prove she wasn’t a decent young woman. Louise vows to someday regain Jim’s respect despite having “yielded to temptation.”

Indexer Notes

It's pretty obvious in this story that Jim and Louise have premarital sex in the cabin.

Characters
Bill Rand; Edith; Tod
Synopsis
Expert swimmer Edith has a crush on handsome lifeguard Bill, but he seems to prefer women who just lounge on the beach. Edith’s brother Tod tells her “no guy likes his girl to be a female Tarzan” and advises her to pretend to be “soft and feminine and helpless.” Edith tries, but when Bill is injured trying to rescue a drowning boy, Edith dives in and saves them both. Bill tells her that he prefers “someone who’s a real person and not just a pretty doll in a bathing suit,” and they kiss.
