Additional Info

The story relates the adventures of a handsome young automobile salesman who, on inheriting a girls' boarding school, insists on running it according to his own ideas, chief of which is that the dominant feature in the education of the young girls of today should be charm. The situations are teeming with humor, clean, wholesome humor.

In the end the young man gives up the school, and promises to wait until the most precocious of his pupils reaches a marriageable age. The play has the freshness of youth, the inspiration of an extravagant but novel idea, the charm of originality, and the promise of wholesome, sanely amusing, pleasant entertainment.
