    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In the United States of America we see various shots of the New York Police trying out a new kind of tear gas shell that explodes harmlessly for use in crowd control. In a laboratory a man in a police gas mask puts one of the shells in his pocket where it explodes. The man jumps but he is unharmed - amazing shot! Another man in a gas mask stands in a field, facing away from a man who is firing the shells at him from a machine-gun. He is unharmed.

    In Minnesota, United States of America, we see Mr and Mrs Koppo sitting outside their house with their six sets of twins. Pan across the line of twins standing behind them. The couple hold their latest baby twins in their arms.
