A high school comedy with a strong underlying theme of good citizenship. Larry Bennett, prize debater of his home state, comes to Washington on a sight-seeing trip with other members of the senior class. Their teacher and chaperone, Lucy Clark, is engaged to a young congressman, Kenneth Taylor. Taylor is sponsoring a bill in the House to provide scholarship loans to young people. He asks Larry to have lunch with some of his colleagues who are on the fence about the bill, but Larry, normally a modest boy, has meanwhile met the teen-age daughter of a senator, and been flattered out of all sense of proportion. He gives an absurdly pompous interview to the press, then manages to jam the legislative machinery when he participates in a Senatorial debate. Before the boy comes to his senses, the Scholarship Loan Bill has been jeopardized, Taylor's re-election threatened, and the young congressman's romance with Lucy almost wrecked. But Larry's high school sweatheart, Babs Davis, saves the day in a surprise ending that involves the intervention of the President. The play avoids any identification with partisan politics.
