Pinkham University's (P.U.) "old cockroach" of a Dean (Jimmy Finlayson) blames coed Helene's campus frock shop for the student girls' behavior, and tells her to leave. Helene's boyfriend Napoleon Fizz (Ted Healy), the Dean's cottage caretaker and perpetual student after 11 years in the freshman class, has invented a medicinal plaster that restores youth. After the Dean accidentally sits on the concoction, he reverts to the mentality of a coed-chasing college lad, to the University President's shock. When the Dean serenades the girls at the sorority house, Helene decides to disguise Napoleon as the house matron, and catch the Dean in a compromising photograph to be used for blackmail when he regains his senses. But the arrival of the real matron, the University President and faculty, turns the evening into a farce of mistaken identity.

Stan Laurel, one year prior to teaming with Oliver Hardy to create one of the greatest comedy teams in film history, directed Stooges' straightman Ted Healy in this amusing vehicle, starring Jimmy Finlayson.

Video Pick of the Week Comic of the Day

The Stooges are tailors in the Navy, and when they can't get a pass they steal some officers' uniforms. Curly is mistaken for Admiral Taylor, and the Stooges go to a party where some spies try to get them to show them the Navy's new top secret submarine. When the real Admiral Taylor shows up, the Stooges pretend not to know him, and decide that they had better make themselves scarce, so they hide out in the submarine, accompanied by the spies!
