The hero of this slapstick comedy is rejected by the army because of his lack of height. For some reason he decides that taking up bowling will cure this problem. He unwittingly aids the enemy when, unknown to him, a radio device is implanted in his bowling ball, enabling German agents to signal U-boats when they are standing near him. When the ruse is discovered, the hero redeems himself by capturing the spy ring and being accepted by the army draft board.
