Duke, the pampered son of a millionaire, decides to prove to his father that he can be a success on his own and takes up prizefighting. On his way to an important match, he sees Susie on a train with a group of college youths and falls in love, deciding to return to college. Although he is determined to compel her to accept him, she consistently refuses his attentions. When at length he wins her admiration, he is obliged to forego a meeting with her so as to fill a Decoration Day fighting engagement in San Francisco. She believes there is an ulterior motive in his absence, but hearing the fight on the radio, she realizes her mistake.
