Bob and Phil went there together with them. Arriving in town, they noticed that there still was no snow. Because of this, vacationers left all hotels.
Friends were staying at a hotel, which was owned by a retired General Waverley. Concierge Martha hid from her master unpaid bills, hoping to improve the situation in the business. After learning about the problems of the former chief, Bob and Phil decided to make a festive show in the hotel. Granddaughter Susan came for Christmas to Mr. Waverley. She was worried about her grandfather, as he again tried to get onto the army’s service. Meanwhile, rehearsals of next concerto began.

Wallace's friend helped to organize a meeting of ex-soldiers of 151 division, to support General. Martha misunderstood his words and decided that Bob wanted to take away the hotel from Waverley. When the concierge shared their assumptions with Betty, the girl started to treat her lover colder.
Soon she went to New York with her sister, where she was offered a job. General learned of the overdue accounts and was very angry with Martha. When the girl did not appear at the rehearsal, Bob and Phil were forced to execute music numbers instead of her. Wallace then went after his beloved. Meeting Betty in New York, Bob tried to convince her that he is a decent man. Later, she realized her mistake.
