Whitey finds that one of the inhabitants of Boys' Town has hidden in his car, unaware that the boy has been involved in a crime. Marsh is arrested for the crime and sent to the reformatory. There, audiences are shown through Whitey's experience, the cruelty of these institutions. Whitey begs Father Flanagan for help and help he does.
