George is bursting with song as he greets Gracie in the morning, but only until he finds the Ladies Uplift Society meeting in full swing in the den. What does he have against the cream of American womanhood? The patriotic ladies are up to some secret shopping to monitor prices of hats. Will their government funding go through on their project? Meredeth, the honorary woman of the club, distracts the situation by talking about his dancing.
Will the bad news about the funding cause the club to break up? Will there be a major uprising and protest? Quick Meredeth, take down a letter as Gracie dictates! She shares her opinions on the sorry state of affairs that result when men in congress run things. Should she start her own country without men?
After a musical interlude by Meredeth Willson, the ladies discuss their money rising woes. Bill Goodwin pops in for a sponsor message, but inspires a way for the ladies to extract money from their husbands. The plan is to charge their husbands money for every little housekeeping chore, from making food to cleaning house. Cash register bells go cha-ching, as Gracie racks up the totals for George.s
