A three-way race for class president ensues, with Nellie and Mary battling the slow-witted Elmer Dobkins for the honor. Plenty of shenanigans ensue: Elmer's nomination was just a joke, while Mary and Nellie each host parties to try to win votes. After Nellie plays a cruel joke on Elmer, Miss Beadle soon puts a stop to the whole idea of class officers, until Laura pleads with the teacher that many lessons have been learned.
In the end, Willie winds up casting the deciding vote, for Elmer! When questioned by his sister, he says it was because Nellie kept picking on him and Elmer wouldn't let her.
