Storyline

Larry Brewster, partner in the music publishing firm of Brewster and Crow, returns from a trip to find that his partner, J.C. Crow has hired Pat O'Rourke as a song plugger. Larry doesn't approve of the plan and, in a bad mood, refuses to see composer Wilfred Potts who is offering a song for publication. Pat, in spite of Larry's objections, stays on the job. She has the firm promote an amateur song-writing contest, and the winner is a submission by Potts, but because he used the name of Wicks, the firm can't locate him and is facing prosecution on charges of using the mail to conduct a fraudulent contest.
