  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In Kansas, United States of America, we see a 24-year-old farmer in a field with his large telescope and another man. Commentator explains the young man discovered a star using his home-made telescope as we see him showing pictures of his star to another man.

    In New York, we see the snoop (yacht) 'Ahto' returning after a 4,000 mile trip from North Africa. Captain Olsen talks to camera, saying it is good to be back in New York to get some good food - a big juicy steak and some beer.

    Somewhere on the North American plains we see various shots of large packs of wild horses being rounded up and herded into enclosures. Commentator says more wild horses than ever are being rounded up here. Could be Nevada.
