The story begins when Stone asks Gannon to speak before a night-school college journalism class. He turns down the invitation, writing a nasty letter to the instructor saying that education is “a waste of time” for anyone who would like to get into the newspaper business and that experience is the only thing important. There he finds the attractive Stone teaching the class. Before he is able to introduce himself and apologize for the letter, Erica reads the letter aloud to the class.

Wanting revenge, he decides to join the class, posing as a wallpaper salesman named Jim Gallagher. Erica is quite taken by him and Gannon is quite taken with Erica. When Erica discovers Gannon's true idenity, she breaks off their relationship. Will Gannon win back her heart?
