  • Short Summary

    General Smuts, Prime Minister of South Africa visits St. Andrews University, Scotland.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "GENERAL SMUTS AT ST. ANDREWS - University students hail their new Lord Rector."

    St. Andrews University, Scotland.

    Three men (two in academic robes) get inside an open coach. The first man that enters the coach is General Jan Christian Smuts, Minister of Justice of South Africa, - he enters it, stands and waves to the crowds for a while and then sits down.

    Masses of people, mostly students, marching towards the camera. Students - and not the horses - pull General Smuts' coach, crowds around. Coach stops in front of a building and General Smuts leaves it. Close up shot of General Smuts in front of the building.
