    Full titles read: "LANGUAGE OF THE HANDS"

    M/S's of a women's arm (the rest of her body is blacked out). The arms and hands make several strange movements. The commentator says - "Did it ever occur to you how expressive hands can be, I mean just hands without their owners ? Well, here's Sali Lobel, leader of the well known Every Women's Health Movement, handing it to you."

    Lobel demonstrates avaricious hands and the hands of a women who loves dancing. Lobel then demonstrates with the aid of a man's hand (could be Lobel's hand with the sleeve of a man's jacket on ) two hands flirting ! Eventually the man's hand disappears out of view and returns with a ring which he places on the finger of Lobel. The two hands then clasp together.
