After Tex's efforts help the freshmen win a tug of war between the sophomore and freshman classes, he is elected class president. Bob is invited to join the most important fraternity on campus, but when Tex and Jay are not invited because they do not come from socially prominent families, he turns down their invitation.

Knowing this, Bob invents flunk insurance, allowing a student to pay a small amount against the ten dollar fee....
