"The thrill that comes once in a lifetime is to score the winning touchdown for the varsity team when all seems lost. That is what happens to Tom Marlowe, football hero of Tait University, but the honor nearly escapes him when he flunks his astronomy examination. The harsh old professor is insistent that Tom qualify in this study, and things look dark, until Patricia, Tom's sweetheart, induces her cousin Connie to tutor him. For once Tom places the habits of the stars on an equal footing with the gyrations of the pigskin and digs in. There are many surprises in store. First of all, Tom falls in love with Connie. Then, the professor, hated by everyone for his insistence upon rules and regulations, turns out to be tender-hearted and passes Tom on the eve of the big game. And the game itself--what a game! Tom is sorely needed, and the suspense is lifted when he makes the winning touchdown."--Publisher's website

"Leaving work after she has been dismissed from her job at Merlin's department store, salesgirl Polly Parrish happens upon a woman leaving an infant on a foundling's home doorstep and is pounced on by the attendants as its mother. After furiously protesting that she is not the baby's mother, Polly leaves the orphanage, but the officials from the home track her down at work. Feeling sorry for the 'unwed mother, ' the boss's playboy son, David Merlin, intercedes to get her a better position in the toy department. When Polly still refuses to keep the infant, however, David threatens to fire her, and she reluctantly accepts motherhood. Polly quickly develops a maternal love for the boy, whom she names Johnnie, and David's compassion for mother and child also ripens into love. Matters reach a climax when disgruntled shipping clerk Freddie Miller sends a note to J.B. Merlin claiming that Johnnie's father is none other than his own son David. Anxious for a grandson, J.B. threatens to take the baby from Polly. Desperate, Polly convinces her landlady's son to pretend to be the baby's father, and as she visits J.B. to introduce him as the baby's father, David appears with Freddie, claiming that the shipping clerk is Johnnie's real father. Confronted by two fathers, J.B. remains unconvinced of the baby's parentage. As Polly prepares to flee, David proposes, and all ends happily as Polly and David plan to marry and adopt baby Johnnie"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
