Synopsis

Sylvia Dodge is engaged to Eugene Weyeth, best friend of her brother, John, when war is declared; and both young men enlist in the Navy. Smith, a secret service operative, informs Sylvia that Ernest Drake, one of her most persistent admirers, is the leader of a German spy ring and persuades her to encourage his companionship so as to learn his contacts and methods. Found in Drake's apartment by her brother and fiancé, Sylvia is disowned by her family; and when Drake is arrested, she leaves home. Attempting to learn the location of her brother from sailors at the Navy Yard, Sylvia is arrested as a streetwalker and sentenced to a year on Blackwells Island. In a great naval conflict, combined British and American fleets repell the Germans in Keil Harbor, and John is killed. After the Armistice, Sylvia is reunited with Eugene at her brother's grave.
