A crisis comes to Ware College, the dean says the college is broke and must shut down. A look at the college’s finances sends alumnus Louis Jordan’s eyebrows up. The college it seems has enough cash to keep ticking for another century. Jordan advises the gloomy faculty in the Dean’s Office and reveals that he has a trick up his sleeve to keep the college from closing. He plans a big dance to raise funds for his alma mater. The students cheer wildly when the Dean is forced by Jordan to announce his “mistake” and declare that the college will stay open. Jordan ends up saving the school and getting the girl.
