Storyline

Two leading women of Wichita want Earp to be chairman of their baby contest. Initially he declines but when he learns about the gambling involved with it, he decides to take on the role. The saloons are forcing all winners to donate ten percent of their winnings to vote for a baby as each vote costs 25 cents and the winner of the contest receives $200. Earp is forced to arrest a man for wearing a gun who wants his 10 percent back as he is broke. However, the man escapes when Earp is distracted by some drunk cowboys. He then finds a hungry woman on the street with a sick baby looking for a doctor. Earp takes them to the doctor. The baby will be okay but the mother is hungry, tired, and broke. The doctor and Earp decide to enter her in the baby contest to win the $200. However, they learn the odds given on the baby winning in one saloon indicate the baby will lose even though she is getting the most votes. An inspection of the rules indicates the father and mother must be present to win... Written by Anonymous
