Irma and Jane are in a confusing discussion of American history, when professor Kropotkin rushes in with an urgent problem. He has adopted a little boy who needs help. The boy doesn’t speak English, but the girls agree to take him on an outing to learn American history and culture at the museum with a cub scout troop.
Irma sets out as the cub scout leader, while the professor has more worries on his hands. He has just got disturbing word from the immigration office.
The professor seems to have told some lies so he could have the boy sent to him. He claims to be married to Mrs O’Riley, and he’s worried that if Mrs O’Riley should find out about the boy that she would raise his rent.
The officials will be here within the hour to inspect the Professor’s apartment to make sure the boy has a good home. Is there anything to worry about? The desperate professor is even willing to marry, or pretend to be married to Mrs O’Riley to keep his adopted son.
Al pops in with an alternate solution to having to marry Mrs O’Riley. Irma even goes to her boss to see if he can help with keeping the boy from being deported. Things aren’t looking good. It’ll only cost the prof a kiss to soften Mrs O’Riley.
