"Doing Their Bit" was a 1918 code phrase for giving one's heart and soul to the War Effort. Jane and Katherine Lee, a popular kiddie sibling duo known as the "two little imps", star as a pair of orphaned Irish refugees. Though they're not native Americans, such is their patriotism that they shame the "slackers" around them into signing up for military service. This done, they save their uncle's munitions factory from German saboteurs. And they get home in time for dinner.
