The girls, Maud and Alice, accept the boys' invitation, with the understanding that Jack's Aunt Nellie will act as their chaperon. It is so arranged and preparations made accordingly.

Hearty laughter filled the house
31 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A roar of hearty laughter filled the house at the climax of this picture, which was written by Maibelle H. Justice and produced by Charles France. The primary situation has served other picture authors, but has never been used so profitably, so far as we know, nor been developed so naturally. The result reflects credit on its writer. John Lancaster, as the janitor who consents to act as chaperone at the college ball, but comes to grief in the middle of the dancing, bears the burden of the picture extremely well. He is well supported by a large cast, including Lillian Leighton, Irma Dale, Nellie Goodwin and, as the college boys. Palmer Bowman and Maxwell Sargent. The photography is clear. - The Moving Picture World, March 8, 1913
