A bachelors' club is shaken when one of its members forfeits his five thousand dollar fee to wed. Then another member adopts the child of a dying friend. This inspires Robert Audrey (Harry Myers) to adopt, too -- he figures it will get his mother (Georgia Woodthorpe) off his back. Mrs. Audrey picks out the photo of an adorable six-year-old war orphan, not realizing that the photo is 12 years old. So Audrey is quite shocked when pretty Ruth Atkins (Mae Marsh) shows up on his doorstep. The other members of the club also adopt war orphans with unexpected results -- crotchety old James Crockett (Claude Gillingwater) requests a boy but winds up with a girl and the highly efficient Henry Allen (William Louis) gets triplets. These children win over their reluctant adopted daddies with no problem, while Audrey falls in love with Ruth. Crockett and Allen both find wives who can mother their children and the bachelors' club is dissolved.
