    United States of America (USA).

    Various shots of the American President Harry Truman on rostrum with drape and American flag speaking - natural sound, poor quality. He is talking about the world food crisis and the people suffering. He is talking about the export of the American food to the other countries, American cannot be happy while human beings are starving, etc. He urges Americans to save food so they can help starving people.

    Close up shot of the US Secretary of Agriculture Mr Clinton Anderson, talking into camera about the food crisis - natural sound, poor quality. He is announcing that Americans will produce more food for export to help the starving people in the world.

    Good medium shot of President Truman, Mr Anderson and former Mayor of New York, Mr La Guardia, now appointed chief of UNRRA, posing for cameras with draped flags behind. They chat as they pose.
