POOR OLLIE! ALL he wants is to practice playing his big bass horn, but his family can’t take the noise. So off Ollie goes in a rowboat to practice offshore. That’s when he realizes that the bell buoy has drifted away–and the fog is getting thick. So he stays and plays his horn as a warning to an incoming ship–and saves it from running aground! Suddenly, the mayor is giving Ollie a medal for bravery, and best of all, the town pays for him to go to music school–where he can practice without bothering anyone!
