    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown

    United States of America.

    Workmen / strikers march with placards and effigies past the camera. Large sign on factory building reads: "Chrysler De Soto".

    As snow falls men march up and down in road as they demonstrate. - Spacing -

    Large crowd of men (possibly inside factory fence). Some wave at the camera, some appear to have bed rolls and blankets. They march about as the snow falls.

    Group of men outside wave placards including "We're with you boys" and "Here comes the Army".

    CU a man reading a newspaper "Lewis calls off Chrysler sitters".

    Strikers march out of factory behind Stars and Stripes flag. People cheer as they pass. More shots of the strikers coming out.

    N.B. Presumably the strikers had been holding a sit in protest against the car manufacturers.
