It's club sign-up at college, and all the clubs are suffering from lack of wannabe members... that is except the Silver Spoon club, which is comprised of wealthy and privileged men on campus, like its president, Chatsworth. Dobie aspires to be a member. Herbert realizes that it is his position in life that is largely preventing Dobie from being able to become a member. So Herbert, rightly surmising that the club has mismanaged its food budget, trades free gourmet groceries twice a week for Dobie's membership, the deal about which Chatsworth and the boys are not allowed to tell Dobie. When Dobie accidentally finds out about the deal, Dobie has to decide what to do. Written by Huggo
