Plot

As described in a review in a film magazine,[4] at a reunion of a bachelors’ club the five remaining members are shocked at the defection of one of their number, who pays his forfeit to get married. Another receives a letter that his chum, about to die, has left him his little girl, and the other three are persuaded to also adopt war orphans. Robert Audrey (Myers) finds his in an eighteen-year-old girl, Ruth (Marsh); old James Crockett (Gillingwater), who grudgingly accepts a boy, really gets a little girl, while Allen (Louis) finds three boys, triplets, have been awarded to him. These kiddies gradually work themselves into the affections of their foster parents until each one marries to provide a "mother" for the children. Finally Robert finds that he loves his "orphan," Ruth, and marries her, and the club goes to smash.
