This is the second film in a series and the sequel to SKIPPY. A small-town boy would give anything to become a soldier and wear a uniform, since he takes real delight in blowing bubbles out of a bugle. The film takes a somber turn, however, when the boy asks his father why people have to

be sent to the poorhouse. His pal's mother is soon to be sent there and, eventually, the woman dies. All the attention focuses on the actions and reactions of the small boys, and they quickly win the audience's hearts.
