Synopsis

James Randall, an upperclassman at the Naval Academy, falls in love with Patricia Lawrence, the sister of a plebe. She is engaged to Basil Courtney, a wealthy reprobate who arranges with Rita to discredit James. On the night of the big dance, Rita goes to the guardhouse where James is supposed to be on duty and arranges to be found with him. Ted Lawrence has taken his place, however, and James sees Ted with Rita in the guardhouse. Honorbound to report Ted for violation of academy rules, James decides to resign instead. Courtney abducts Patricia, and James rescues her. James discovers Rita's complicity in Courtney's schemes and decides to stay in the academy, marrying Patricia upon his graduation.
