Football hero Tom Bain (Jack Gardner) wants to marry Peggy Dinsmore (Helen Ferguson), the sister of his college pal (Frank Morris). But it's going to take more to support Peggy in the style to which she's accustomed than a job at the bank where Tom's dad is cashier. So Tom comes up with the idea of inventing a machine to drill tunnels through hills. Because of his skill at talking people up, he is able to sell this contraption -- but it turns out to be a complete failure. When the head of the company comes to Tom with his complaints, Tom gives him such a great line that he hires him as a salesman. With this job, he is able to land his expensive bride.
