    Titles read: "JUNIORS JOY DAY!"

    Durban, South Africa.

    Various shots of children between the age of about 5 and 10 years walking about and posing at an outdoor fancy dress competition. Winning children pose on the steps of a bandstand (?) - one is dressed as Mae West (? - commentator says "Come up and see me sometime").

    At a continental zoo (probably in Italy) we see children looking through the bars of a cage at a family of exotic birds and other exotic birds. We also see porcupines, ostriches, turtles (a little boy sits on a turtle's shell and cries) and monkeys - one of which is seen climbing over a newsreel camera.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
