Rubber salvage drive in Washington DC.
Titles read: 'RUBBER ROUND-UP' ( Dublin issue ).
Washington DC, United States of America (although commentator says it's Memphis, Tennessee).
C/U of a pile of old rubber tyres. M/S of a man driving a tractor pulling trailers full of old tyres past huge piles of tyres in a yard. Panning shot along the tyre piles. Commentator explains the rubber is being collected "for salvage... for the 101 new things that Uncle Sam is wanting" - namely war materials, but you can't say that in the Dublin issue!
Children throw tyres and other bits of old rubber onto a pile, with a banner behind it reading 'Get In The Scrap - Official Rubber Collection Depot'. The Capitol Building is clearly seen in the background.
A group of small boys pull along a cart with a sign on it reading 'Boys Club of Washington Rubber Salvage' and boots and other old rubber bits are piled on it. They empty it onto a big pile of rubber odds and ends.
Several shots of children lining up at what looks like a petrol station. Their old rubber offerings are weighed by a man who looks like a soda jerk on a small set of scales. He seems to give them money for their rubber toys, hose and boots. The man helps a cute little boy to take off one of his wellington boots.
