whoops, what I meant to say...
Disregard what that Bill T. said! He don't know nothing!
In this volume, we find out about Phillipine volcanoes, caves, Joe Dimaggio's retirement, and what goes on in an orchestra, because all you young kids want to know about these things apparently. This and other stories.

Ike Joins, Church Comes, Troops Watch and Ship Sinks!
In this volkume..
We first see Ike take his first steps to becoming the President of the United states by becoming a replublican candidate for election. Nothing really earth shattering here, unless you can't get enough of that impossibly jingoey 'We Like Ike" slogan.
Nice footage of a snowstorm that happened at California. Great footage of a rescue of a snowtrapped train.
Winston Churchill comes to Washington and NYC and well, since this is NYC, they throw a parade for him. Pretty nice one too.
More foolish troops watch a nuclear bomb test in Nevada. They seem to not mind the radioactive dust blowing on to them..
Rather silly segment about a man who can carve figures out of vegetavles. Might as well throw them into a soup like the woman did at the end.
We then show a pretty blah demonstration of a slo mo camera that is said to be able catch missles in flight. That is not shown, instead, we see a slow mo plane.
Hawaii is then profiled, as it was on the verge of becoming a US state. Mmmmkay.
We end it off with a protrait of a ship captain who thought he could save his ship, finally he wa convinced to get off of it. Everyone is moved to this, NYC has (yes) a parade for him. and his hometown also has one too.
Pretty standard stuff this time!
