The Army wants the ranchers land and the Borax plant for their maneuvers. Stevenson is dissatisfied with their offer for the plant and has his men blowing up ranches making it look like the work of the Army. He hopes when the ranchers rebel the Army will raise their bid to avoid trouble. Gene has been sent to investigate but the eviction day has arrived and the ranchers prepare to fight the Army.

Sergeant Gene Autry:
We need planes where our men can train and our equipment can be tested over and over again until every flaw can be found and corrected. And I don't believe any of you are such poor Americans that you won't be proud to do your part.

Fun, forgettable comedy actioner with Frog and Autry and the added bonus of the legendary Gabby Hayes to round off the comedy talent. Autry's sent on a special mission by the army to convince a town to give up its land so the army can run drills there. Yes, it's a war preparedness western, in which the ego-centered ethic of the West is turned on its head by Autry convincing Hayes and the other townsfolk to abandon their homes and livelihoods for the greater good. A few songs are sun (no outstanding material from Burnette).
Not especially entertaining, but not particularly unpleasant.
