• Short Summary

    The St Louis Post and Dispatch newspaper is printed and transmitted into homes in America.

  • Description

    Titles read: "RADIO PAPER NO. 1!"

    St Louis, Missouri, United States of America.

    Various shots of people working in a newspaper office on the St Louis Post and Dispatch. Men work to typeset and print a single copy of the news sheet which is put on a transmission machine. A photoelectric eye scans the copy and beams it out over the airwaves.

    In an American home we see a little girl and her mother take the incoming newspaper sheet from their receiving machine on their radio set. Other children sit about on the sofa and chairs in the living room.
