~Plot Synopsis~
Impressionable Hugh Carver, once a championship runner in prep school, falls in love with Cynthia Day
at college and goes to the dogs. He begins to lose races and incurs the wrath of his parents. Cynthia
eventually realizes that she has done Hugh a great disservice in encouraging his infatuation and refuses
to see him any longer. Hugh then regains his athletic prowess and wins the big football game for his
school. Upon his graduation, a changed Cynthia returns to him, and it looks like wedding bills for old
man Carver.
