Robert Gibbs, ( Creighton Hale ) is a wealthy man, but cowardly and decides to escape the draft by marrying laundress Susie Simpkins ( Gladys Hulette ). Susie is appalled when she hears her father chiding him for his cowardice, having thought she married a brave and patriotic man, Susie then learns the real reason why he married her. After declaring she won't be known as " Mrs Slacker," she leaves Robert and decides to don the uniform and fight in the war herself. Later that night, Susie uncovers a German sabotage plot to blow up a reservoir in the city. She is captured by the spies, and Robert who happens to be wandering by, realizes his wife is in danger, rescues her, thwarting the enemies bombing. Now a real hero, Susie proudly stands by Robert as he enlists. One of the many silent films made during the first World War to inspire the home front with a little comedy and dramatic patriotism.
