When America enters WWI, wealthy wimp Robert Gibbs (Creighton Hale) has neither the desire nor the stomach to march off to France. To earn a draft deferment, Gibbs hastily weds laundress Susie Simpkins (Gladys Hulette). When she learns that he married her only to avoid getting shot, she balks at being a "Mrs. Slacker" and gives him the air. Despite this blow to his manhood, Gibbs is not galvanized into joining the army until Susie goes off on her own and foils a German sabotage scheme. Very much a product of its times, Mrs. Slacker would be rendered instantly unsalable when the Armistice was declared in November of 1918.
