Saddened by being turned down as a reporter on the school newspaper, The Student Star, Daffy overhears information regarding a milk racket, which is considered a threat to the peace and health of the community, and reports it as an expose in the next edition. At first, the story apparently backfires in Daffy's face, but Superboy soon discovers the truth in it.
