  • Description

    Titles read: "UNDERWATER UNDERGRADS" (Dublin).

    Miami, Florida, United States of America.

    At Rainbow Springs we see various shots of students from the University of Miami trying out some new diving helmets that have been designed for the study of marine biology. Young men in trunks help girls in white swimsuits to put on the helmets; the men stay at the pumps while the girls make their way into a lake. There are long tubes attached to the helmets.

    Several underwater shots show the male and female students underwater, gathered around a blackboard and looking at fish.
