After June Webster's father dies and leaves her guardianship to Ethan Dexter and Henry Jarvis, the vice presidents of the Webster Trust Co., which holds her fortune until she reaches eighteen, her official fathers become alarmed at Janet's capricious escapades. Deciding that marriage is the way to tame Janet, Dexter proposes and is accepted. Then Winfield Jarvis, Henry's son, proposes and is also accepted. In a quandry as to which suitor to marry, Janet confides in bank teller Steven Peabody, who loves the girl himself. Later, Steven overhears Dexter boasting of his future control of the Webster millions, but before he can warn Janet, the banker locks Steven in the closet and goes to meet his bride-to-be. Steven escapes and arrives in time to find Dexter and Jarvis arguing over Janet who then reads aloud a letter written by her late father denouncing both vice presidents and announces that she will marry Steven.
