Betty Gibbs is given the position of librarian of the little village library. As soon as she is installed the library becomes very popular. Among those who come is Robert Prentice, a high school teacher, and he and Betty quickly become interested in each other. Betty's brother has recently enlisted in the army and is at a post near the village. Corporal Cutler, coming across Jack Gibbs while the boy is supposedly off duty, is abusive to him and finally irritates the boy so that he knocks the officer down.
