With a borrowed instrument and free lessons at school, Tom is encouraged that his son is showing an interest in music. After three days, Eddie's talent is still lacking, but the household endures to encourage Eddie. However, upstairs neighbor, Major Pritchett, is not so understanding. Not willing to compromise, Major Pritchett demands that Eddie cease and desist from ever playing the saxophone again. After speaking to the major, Tom is outraged. The major has declared war, and one of his tactics is to stomp continually on his floor and play his bagpipes at two o'clock in the morning. As neither side gives in, the major, with other neighbors on his side, organizes a tenant's meeting to discuss the issue. After consulting his lawyer Sy Freeman who advises him to come to terms with the major, Tom welcomes the opportunity to address the tenants. After making his point and outing Major Pritchett as the bagpipe player, Tom informs the tenants that Eddie has decided to stop playing the saxophone since he has decided he doesn't like it. The major thinks he's won the battle, but apparently he has not won the war. The major gets a talking to from his next door neighbor, Lorraine Karn, who objects to the continual squawking of his birds. And another neighbor, Mr. Hobson, was so buoyed by Tom's speech that he has decided to bring out his drum set. Written by Huggo See less
