    Pheasant rearing, a huge Minnesota wheat harvest and insulators tested at a laboratory.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    United States of America (USA).

    In Sherborne in New York we see various shots of pheasant that have been reared for game reserves. A chicken or hen sits clucking on a nest; she is lifted up so we can see the tiny pheasant chicks beneath her. More little striped chicks are seen with a hen or chicken.

    In Minnesota we see several shots of enormous fields covering 20,000 acres being harvested by several combine harvester machines. The wheat grain is taken to a huge storage elevator.

    At a Pasadena laboratory we see insulators being tested. Transformers produce an electric current of 1 million volts. The 'lightning' crackles about the generators.
