Storyline

Enid Gregory plays the piano at a music store on Broadway, and is content with her snappy, routine existence until Janet Fenwick, a society girl whose father committed suicide under a cloud of financial disgrace, comes to Enid's boarding-house. Enid gets Janet a job, and Janet teaches Enid society manners, awakening her ambition; and Enid's interest turns from Billy to Kent Lloyd, whom she meets on a beach outing. Jack Taylor, Janet's fiance, informs Janet of an affidavit held by her father's partner, Bruce Tilford, that would clear his name. Enid tries to obtain the paper from Tilford but is trapped in his apartment. There Jack and Bruce engage in a fight, and when a fire breaks out, Enid rescues Bruce. Later, Bruce promises to surrender the paper, and Lloyd proposes to Enid and promises to work his way to a partnership in his father's plumbing company. Written by Pamela Short
