Little boy and pet dog try to hitch a lift on road, a lady on a bicycle gives them a ride.
Issue title is PATHE PICTORIAL LOOKS AT OTHER PEOPLE'S PROBLEMS.
Location of events unknown.
Various shots of little boy (Dave) and his small dog (Dusty) walking along pavement next to a busy arterial road. Dave sticks his thumb out - he is trying to hitch a lift from passing traffic. Various shots of cars and trucks driving past, none stop. Dave gets increasingly frustrated. An old man with a big white beard stops to talk to Dave.
More shots Dave hitchhiking. In the end Dave sits on grass looking dejected. A woman on a bicycle passes, Dusty runs out in front of her and sits on his hind legs (cute). The woman picks Dusty up and puts him in her bicycle basket, Dave sits on back wheel - they've finally got a ride!
Note: one of a series of "Dave and Dusty" stories, probably aimed at younger audiences.
