Since his sister Hattie left town, Gildersleeves is rearing to get back to his usual routine. We find him bursting with energy in the Water Commissioner’s office. He feels like a free man as he talks to Bessie. The soaring feelings come to a crashing end when Gildy has a few near misses with traffic on the way home. As he and Marjorie meet folks along the way, we learn of a Red Cross drive, and a visiting soldier home on leave.
Gildy is just the man to get roped into being honorary chairman, but a hotbed of ill feelings between a few of the womanfolk emerges. Can he soothe things over, and unite the town for a successful drive?
Things are hopping in the Gildersleeves home as the big moment approaches. Taking a break from the madhouse, Gildersleeves pops in to visit with Peavey, and comment about those darn arguing women. Good thing men never argue like that. Well, listen in to see how Gildy has a rude awakening on that one.
The warring factions all come together, the fur is about to fly over the fund raising ideas, but a rescue comes from an unexpected source. A reality check is dropped to put priorities into perspective.
