Plot

As described in a review in a film magazine, [4] Ann Jordan (De La Motte), the flirtatious and pampered daughter of a wealthy contractor (Walling), is inclined to favor easy going Bob (Goodwin), but breezy and conceited Frank (Sears) sweeps her off her feet and she becomes engaged to him. Shaking his hand, her father remarks that he is the thirteenth suitor he has congratulated for that reason. Bob's friend Jack (Forrest), an engineer, is preparing a design for a bridge competition. Ann's father becomes interested, invites him to the house, and copies his ideas. Ann falls in love with Jack and sweeps him off his feet, although he realizes that she is a flirt. Ann's father congratulates him on his engagement, and declares that he is responsible for Jack losing the bridge competition as he wanted the design for a bigger proposition.
