The Winfield family moves to a larger house; Marjorie Winfield and a neighbor boy, William Sherman, fall in love. Williams's ideas about marriage and money don't please Marjorie's father, a bank Vice President. After graduation, the entire class of the small Indiana town ships off to WWI. Pleasant nostalgic fluff, with undercurrent of upcoming war. Followed by a sequel, By the Light of the Silvery Moon (1953).
