James Morrisson goes off to Yale. As a lowly freshman, he is hazed by his fellow scholars. Then his parents come to visit him and bring along his sister, beautiful Beatrice Behrman. Suddenly, Morrisson is the most popular man on campus.

This Vitagraph one-reeler can be seen on the Eye site on YouTube, albeit with Dutch titles. It is not particularly good, given how little there is in this one-joke comedy, although the well-run studio has all its technical issues well in hand, with elaborate set dressing that bespeaks the essentially middle-class ranking of its characters, as well as fine outdoor settings.

Although not a very good movie, it is a valuable example of what was going on at the Vitagraph Studio in the last few years of all-short-subject movie programs.
