Incompetent waiter Shemp Howard ruins Detmar Poppen's rendez-vous with Louise Squire. The next day he reports for training in the National Guard, thinking it will be a vacation. Guess who his commanding officer is? I am not terribly fond of Shemp Howard's comedy persona as a loud-mouthed, twitchy bumbler, but for those of you who are, this will be a very funny short subject. Although it is a Vitagraph short directed by Roach veteran Lloyd French, it is a Shemp movie all the way, from its big knock-about pratfalls to its loud sound effects -- listening to it, one would think it was something out of Jules White's shorts department at Columbia.
