  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICIALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In the United States of America, we see men of the US Navy carrying out deep sea diving experiments, mixing canisters of oxygen and helium to enable divers to go to greater depths. A man in a diving suit and helmet is lowered into a pressurised chamber tank that is the equivalent of going to a depth of 500 feet.

    At Jamesburg, New Jersey, we see a new three-wheeled car being wheeled into a yard by three young men. The car is made from pieces of junk and powered by steam. Two of the boys ride the car along a road in a cloud of steam.
