  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this issue.

    Titles read: "COAL MINERS TAKE CHARGE".

    United States of America.

    L/S of a steam train moving along a track in a quarry with mining colliery in the background. General views of wooden shacks; an old man stands on the porch of his shack. A man in a suit writes something in a log book as miners in dungarees stand around him and point at the page he is writing on. Men come up from the mine in an open lift. C/U of a man with a lived-in face putting a pipe in his mouth and sucks on it. L/S of men working on the quarry.

    Gist of the story seems to be that the workers are running the colliery.
