Storyline

Two college boys, from a very respectful distance, worship the great hero of the football field, Jarvis by name. At the beginning of the picture we see them negotiating for and achieving an introduction to him. After college days are over they become assistant shipping clerks in a big establishment. On one of the pillars of their workroom is pinned a big newspaper picture of their hero in full football regalia. Whenever they pass it they stand in salute before it. One day a great event happens: at a cheap table d'hote dinner their hero makes his appearance and with much trepidation they finally decide to go over and claim acquaintanceship with him. Instead of a haughty repulse which they might have expected, he invites them to sit down at his little table and have their dinner together. It is a great honor and a great event for the boys.

The hero worship withstands all the shocks of seeing the man down
19 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Another "Siwash College" story by Geo. Fitch. The situation is as fresh as good air and full of comedy. The great football hero is worshiped by two sophomores. Time passes. All these are graduated. The hero, a lawyer without clients, has gone broke and is hungry. One of the most commendable things about this picture is that the hero worship withstands all the shocks of seeing the man down and ready to work manfully as a porter. The audience plainly showed that it enjoyed the picture; it is worthy. Mr. Geo. Lessey plays the "hero," Messrs. O'More and Beaumont play the two sophomores. We also see Mr. McDermott. Miss Elizabeth Miller, Miss Natalie Kindgen and Mr. John Sturgeon. - The Moving Picture World, June 1, 1912
