Storyline

Rivals since childhood, Pete ( Nick Stuart ) and Bill ( John Darrow ) continue feuding in high school, and their natural friction is intensified by each centering his attention on new classmate, Eleanor Barrett ( Sally Phipps ). Amusing complications involve a sequence in which the high school Latin class presents what is intended to be a Roman tragedy but develops as a comic farce. The boys' enmity threatens to disrupt the school basketball team, but loyalty to their school compels them to drop their differences. Meanwhile, Eleanor ends up more interested in Allen Drew ( David Rollins ), a bespectacled, studious type. Written by Pamela Short
