All three try to avoid the overbearing Mrs. Haslem, who is Granmum's daughter and mother to the two boys. Granmum realizes that both her grandsons are in love and decides to award a ring to the first one to marry, but the ring is stolen. During a police raid, it is revealed that the Purity League president's son stole the ring to give to a dancer at the cafe.
