This short was either used to tout electricity or fungus.
This short is about a guy returning home and bringing a friend to stay over. A friend who is also a guy and sends the sister into a frenzy. Apparently there were incredibly desperate girls back in the day ready to throw themselves at the first guy new in town. Well he does not quite take to her at first as he is more interest in devices and an upcoming lecture about fungus. So there is the problem, what is this short trying to accomplish? Hm, there are several mentions of electricity within this short, but there is also several mentions of the fungus lecture. One can also not rule out that this is some workshop meant to help young girls lure men into marriage by pretending to be interested in the same things. I am going to have to go with the electricity as there seems no need to mention how everything, including the water heater, is electric and how great all the electric stuff in the house is if it was not some vague short put out by the electric company about how wonderful electricity is. Still, they could be a bit more direct as there are some that are going to focus in on that fungus lecture and wonder if they too could grow and raise fungus in the basement. The acting is over the top, the sister comes across as very immature someone who should not be helped in her quest to find a boyfriend, and the parents wooden. Still, it was more entertaining than other shorts I have seen from this era.
