Drama

Billy Parker is a senior and President of the Student Council at a large university which receives the greater portion of its funds from William Carter, a very rich manufacturer. Billy is in love with Rachel Jarvis, a psychology student and the daughter of the President of the University, but she repels his advances by her scientific attitude. Henry Pratt, another senior, has brought disgrace on himself by demonstrating during a football game against Carter and the manner in which he treats his mill-workers. It is up to the student council to take action on this, but Billy makes a deal with the council to do nothing about Henry and he (Billy) will make it possible for Meacham, a star football player, to evade a Shakespeare examination by a faked injury. When the President and his board examine this situation they are brought to an impasse by the realization that expulsion of Henry for his misdemeanor will expose the school to great scandal. They agree to allow Henry to stay in school. Billy, brought to realize that high-sounding phrases are empty, goes on a rampage and the next day delivers his speech at the commencement exercises. The speech questions the integrity of the college and its manner of educating the young, eager student and blasts Carter for not looking out for his mill-workers and the conditions under which they have to live. And so Billy repudiates his college learning and goes out into the world to find out what it is all about.
