    In Moscow, Russia, we see various shots of an animal fur auction in progress. Buyers examine hundreds of pelts handing on rails in the fur market, then put in their bids in the auction room. There are several auctioneers sitting at a table, each responsible for a different section of the sale. Brief M/S of exterior of the auction building, people walk along snowy streets.

    In the village of Nonington near Dover in Kent we see several shots of a College of Physical Training, with beautiful grounds and a modern gymnasium. Various shots of young women doing exercises in the gym - swinging over bars and leaping on and off boxes.

    In Palestine we see women picking oranges in a grove attended by armed guards. Other guards watch over the fields for terrorists from sandbag-covered hills. Men put oranges into boxes and load them onto trucks. Brief shot of boxes being loaded onto boats at a harbour.
