In a misguided theory to make his school a trend setter, Mr Conklin has mandated that school should be held on Saturday. Of course a revolt among both students and faculty results. Though the turnout of teachers and students is slim for classes, a protest and demonstration is planned. Miss Brooks is joined by Walter, Harriot, and Stretch to show their displeasure. To her credit, Connie tries to motivate the students to get onboard with the project, and attend class. What will the head of the school board, Mr Stone have to say on the new classes?
Mr Stone is on the way over. Will he love the idea, or hate it? Connie is caught in the middle as she alternately gives a pep talk to the students to stay, then to go, then to stay. The students aren’t dummies, and develop their own scheme to put a kink in the plan.
The students may be detained against their will, but their fire drill creates it’s own comic situation for Mr Conklin.
