    Titles read: "NEWS BRIEFS".

    Somewhere in the west of Britain, we see various shots of Queen Mary visiting a training centre for women workers. Here they are given 8 weeks' intensive instruction in aircraft engine construction. Queen Mary watches young women in turbans at work.

    At a shabby house near King's Cross railway station in London, we see a memorial plaque to V I Lenin, founder of Soviet Russia, being unveiled by Madame Maisky, wife of the ambassador who is also present. A crowd of people watch. Commentator says the plaque will eventually be sent to Russia. Some people are carrying a large banner reading "Quiet Nights, Thanks To Russia".

    "At a shabby house near King's Cross railway station" - the house was at Holford Square, London. Lenin had lived there in 1902 and 1903.
