All the fun of the student rag, with pram pushing, tiddlywinks and piano smashing.
Sloane Square, London.
Students from London Universities raise money for charities by performing various stunts in their annual rag. The Pathe camera follows a pram race, with one student with a potty on his head, one in pyjamas, and a girl sucking a lolly sitting in a pram. We also follow a tiddlywinks race in Kensington High Street, where the students are seen trying to get a tiddlywink back from a drain, and try to prise the drain cover off with an umbrella. A group of students push a piano into a derelict area and smash it up.
There are also rock climbers crawling along Regent Street, as if it were a mountain climb, searching for holds on the railings. There is a long line of bemused onlookers . Two students chuck rubbish out of a rubbish cart, while the rubbish man in cloth cap nods. Others 'fish' from a drain and catch some nice fish and a kipper! The students smash the piano and dance in a ring. Some student girls leap and cheer. We see more of the pram race, with nice shot at the end of the Pathe cameraman being pushed along in the pram taking a shot from the point of view of 'baby'.
