Headlines announce that women will run the city for a day. The day's mayor sings a challenge to her lieutenants and they respond in close harmony that they'll make the city pretty.

In this gem of a short subject June Allyson, not yet the star that should would eventually become, plays a temporary mayor for a city in order to make it more attractive. With the help of several other well meaning dames, she urges other city employed women to do their jobs to the best of their abilities.
A musical short, the first two songs in this one are amazingly catchy. Particularly a song about an overworked information girl. We are then presented with a near-opera number and finale that's very cheerful and features quite the funny little joke.' You can catch this one on the Warner Brothers "Roaring Twenties" DVD. Recommended.
