Radio announcer Andy McCaine broadcasts the news, stating that there is nothing to link Copelin with the missing money, and is warned by his sponsor, department store owner E.E. Nichols, to leave politics out of his program. When Andy refuses, he is fired. Andy points out that his contract doesn't allow him to be fired, so his boss puts him to work broadcasting the children's hour. Meanwhile, Dunk Glover, Andy's legman, continues to investigate Copelin's disappearance. Andy decides to take the program on location, broadcasting the activities of children. One boy, Mouse Malone, writes to Andy and invites him to see a boxing match that he is presenting. Mouse reveals to Andy that he believes Nicey Ferguson killed his brother Danny. He tells Andy that the night Copelin disappeared, Danny was asked to do a cement job and later was killed. The address Danny was sent to was the same address Copelin went to before he vanished. Andy investigates and learns that the house belongs to Weston, the chief accountant at Copelin's business. In the garage, under an oil slick, Andy finds new cement and assumes that it is Copelin's grave. He suspects that Danny was killed to keep him quiet. Pretending to be interested in buying the house, Andy calls Weston. He trails Weston to Nicey's club and follows both of them back to the house, where they dig up Copelin's body. The police identify the body, and Andy starts to broadcast from the murder site. A shoot-out between Nicey and the police ensues and Nicey is killed. Nichols is discovered in the house with Nicey and is arrested by the police. Vindicated, Andy gets his old job back"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940.

A Texas Aggie who had spent several years in Japan before the war appears to be a Japanese spy, but in the end it is revealed that he is really working for the U.S., when he sacrifices his life in order to dive his plane into a Japanese aircraft carrier. "The Army hour radio program honors the new graduates of Texas A & M who are preparing to join the United States Armed Forces. Many of the school's alumni, such as Colonel Jason 'Cannonball' Craig, listen to the broadcast from their stations in the South Pacific. Radio announcer Bill Stern then tells the story of Brad Craig, Jason's son, who first attended Texas A & M in 1938: On the train to the college, Brad meets and falls for Nina Lambert, the granddaughter of chemistry professor 'Pop' Lambert. Brad has a hard time adjusting to the rigors and traditions of the military school, despite the constant counsel of his roommate, Cyanide Jenkins. Bill tells Pop that he plans to quit college and return to his home in the Philippines, but the professor convinces him to stay. Later, at a late-night pep rally, Bill meets and quickly becomes friends with two Japanese students, Matsui and Kubo. Brad and Nina date for his first two years at the college, though she and Cyanide soon fall in love. The two finally admit their true feelings to each other at a ball, but, out of loyalty to Brad, they remain only friends. As the United States prepares for war in the South Pacific, Brad receives the ire of his fellow cadets for his continuous support of the Japanese. Brad's mind is changed, however, when he sees photographs of the atrocities committed by the Japanese in China. At the beginning of his senior year, Brad is accused of helping Matsui and Kubo steal a secret formula from Pop's laboratory, though he is only pretending to be a traitor and actually gives the Japanese spies a counterfeit formula. Brad is soon forsaken by his fellow cadets, then expelled from the college. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Brad goes to Japan, where he performs on anti-American radio broadcasts. Prior to the Japanese attack on the Solomon Islands, Brad is taken aboard a Japanese aircraft carrier, then is assigned an airplane so that he can report on the battle from the sky. Seeing his window of opportunity, Brad kills his Japanese pilot, then radios the American flyers, who include Cyanide, of the position of the Japanese fleet. The Americans win the sea battle with further help from Brad, who commits suicide by crashing his plane onto the deck of a Japanese carrier. As the Army hour radio broadcast ends, Brad is posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his self-sacrifice, and his father listens with pride to the ceremony"--AFI catalog, 1941-1950.
