  • Description

    Titles read: "FIGHTING NATURE!"

    Tien-Tsin, China.

    Various shots of floods over a vast area of farmland. We then see Japanese troops and Chinese under supervision at work, building a new canal that will help remove the flood waters. Dynamite charges are used to blast a new channel; several shots of the small explosions throwing earth into the air. The flood water flows through the channel; a marker shows how much the water level has dropped.
