Synopsis

Billy Dexter, celebrating a football victory with his college chums, is arrested for roughhousing. He promises Mary, his girl, that he will reform; and his father presents him with an electric coupe and sends him to J. W. Smith, who proves to be an inebriated woman who sells hymnals. Instead of taking her to a recital, he goes with her to the cabaret from which he was evicted, and she incites a brawl that results in Billy's arrest and imprisonment on Blackwells Island for 30 days. He deceives Mary into believing he is on a missionary tour of the South Seas, then escapes and persuades her to marry him immediately. Their marriage ceremony is repeatedly interrupted by detectives trailing him, but he succeeds in evading them until the nuptial knot is tied. Subsequently, Billy is handed his prison discharge papers.
