Abstract:

Intertitles: Santa brings U.S. biggest submarine. Mrs. Charles Francis Adams, wife of Navy Secretary, christens giant V-5, largest in world (105 ft.) -- Senate war opens over World Court. Swanson of Virginia urges American adherence to international tribunal. Senator Johnson, California, declares for American "independence" (166 ft.) -- 50,000 [dollar] race opens new turf season in Australia. Huge crowds see 14 start in the famous Melbourne Cup Classic (124 ft.) -- "Behind the scenes" with Metrotone. Here's how a Broadway show is whipped into shape: This is a rehearsal for Strike up the band. Principals and chorus work on an equal basis; among the notables you'll recognize George Gershwin, composer, and Clark & McCullough, noted comedians -- Air gunners train in ground planes. U.S. Navy base at Pensacola invents a new method of improving sky fighters' marksmanship. Bringing down "enemy planes" (110 ft.) -- Rose tournament greets new year. Colorful pageant gets year 1930 off to a fragrant start at Pasadena (111 ft.).
