This blatant World War I propaganda film was based on a Henry Irving Dodge story that appeared in the Saturday Evening Post. Albert Walker (Arthur Hoyt) is dismayed by the rumors and unpatriotic talk he hears around town. Disgusted with these "yellow dogs," he rounds up the boys of the village and has them challenge all those who speak against the war efforts. Not only does this plan purge the town of "yellow dogs," a plot is discovered in which a shipyard is to be blown up. The nefarious scheme is halted and the identity of the spy responsible for it is revealed.
