01 industrial building is coal power source of reconstruction, basic element is private and the national economy. Progress and pace of the recovery depends on the performance of each individual mine today. Obtained in the Fortuna pit Brown coal mining in Cologne - the excavator promote coal directly from a depth of 80 m.
On production lines, the brown coal directly at the briquette plant is fed, pulverized and pressed.
The briquettes will be released in the pulse of the machine and hiking over running belts for transport in the available trucks. A part of the production is diverted for reparations, everything else will benefit from the German industry and the household.
The works of Leitz in Wetzlar fabricate again the famous Leica cameras, microscopes and other scientific and medical instruments. Hospitals, doctors and universities get this equipment indispensable for their work. Already 3,000 workers are employed in the Assembly Hall of the work.
And here the fabrication of Leica.
A full day production of Leicas shows renewed performance of the work, a strong factor to uplift and vitalize a German exports and foreign trade.
02. streiflichter from Germany: a. rest home for war invalids the former nursing home on Lake Starnberg is now used as a rest home for invalids. War of ages To find here for A few weeks, hospitable accommodation, relaxation and medical treatment.
Every day is filled with sports and games and other entertainment.
The Vesper Bell gets to the common meal. The management of Munich dining institutions took over the catering.
b. music boxes, the instrument collection of the city of Munich was transported back to Munich from her Evakuierungsort in the Upper Palatinate.
The collection includes about 3,000 instruments from all over the world and all times. She is first temporarily housed and later to get a permanent home in the former Munich Villa Martin Bormans.
A Claviciterium, a forerunner of the piano from the 16th century.
Also boxes of all kinds are represented. This is the where... Sounds like you? Please here. And this is the smallest music box in the world, from the 17th century. She is only 4 cm high, made of Ducat gold and weighs all 48 grams.
c. children's ship, Hamburg Hamburg children from particularly bombengeschädigten districts run daily during the summer with a pleasure boat in the beautiful, green landscape outside the gates of the city.
The children's ship is a facility of the Hamburg school. 6 to 700 children every day enjoy the occasion, for A few hours to leave the debris fields of the city and become in light, air and Sun can let off steam and relax.
The teachers running and supervising their pupils. And the "school meals" in 1946 a free air feast, a worthy final of the class trip.
d. Registrar remains one of the of the Registrar to the professions for women newly developed now and in Berlin-Reinickendorf, Miss Dora Brunzlow already managed the Office of the official marriage Porter.
The first Registrar of Berlin's formerly worked in a lawyer's Office and acquired then - in a "course for State officer candidate" - the trade and knowledge of human nature for dealing with thereto.
03. New from America: a. aircraft carrier Midway the American aircraft carrier "Midway" is now in the service of polar research. In the Norwegian Sea, carries out experiments to test the resistance of man and machine under Arctic conditions.
Pilots and ground crews wear special suits against the bitter cold and the often sudden onset snow storm. The hot air engines are fueled before each start. The new Arctic fashions make their vehicles such as fantastic creatures of Mars, but they proved themselves as best and high protection.
Special machines clean the deck of New Zealand. Right at the start – the propeller is fired up. With catapult force the aircraft into the air is propelled to join the flight in the eternal ice. And so the machine after machine.
The new expedition had complete success. Valuable scientific and practical experience gained during these trials for life and traffic in the Arctic zone.
b. sheep, thousands cubic meters fall dam every second about the Grand Coulee in Washington State. The dam is one of the most perfect technical buildings in America. The particularly heavy snow melt of this year reinforced the raging floods, which has to cope with the massive dam.
At the same time the Grand Coulee as dam road and bridge. A flock of 3,000 sheep draws to the opposite shore of the Columbia River to new better summer pastures... a beautifully picturesque image of the Zusammenklanges of nature and technology.
c. refugees In New York Harbor arrives a ship with more than 800 victims of the Nazi regime. Most have spent long agonizing years in the terror camps of Auschwitz, Dachau and Theresienstadt. Statue of liberty, they go to a happier future. Many bear the fire time of Auschwitz a tattooed identification number on their arms. 75 of the incoming children are orphans. Most do not know their home or their nationality.
Many passengers To find back their relatives and friends at the wharf.
d. Roundhouse the housing shortage in America leads to all sorts of experiments. This Roundhouse alloy was built in the State of Kansas.
The designer explains the benefits of the Round House. It needs no foundations, the roof is movable and can be used as a mechanical ventilation system and you can find more at any corner.
A model shows the details.
Each part of the space is used. In the Interior, there are new practical ideas: rotating wardrobes... built-in drawers under the Paternoster system...
The whole: yet strangely appealing attempting over-a round thing.
the elections to the Presidency were Instead of e. President Roxas, Philippines the Philippines. A lively propaganda for both candidates, Osmeña and Roxas leaves are colorful and interesting to the election campaign.
Manuel Roxas, who went to the ballot box in Manila, was elected President by a clear majority. He will announce the independence of the Philippines in July of this year.
Immediately Roxas travelled after the election to America for an official visit and friendly personal discussion with President Truman.
04. Bees provide healing fabric houses far beyond 1,000 bee colonies the largest bee farm in Europe in Illertissen (Swabia). In addition to the honey and wax extraction, a proven cure for sciatica, gout and rheumatism is made here, mainly from the poisonous sting of bees.
Because the bees have also their lives with the sting, only that are oldest and weakest for the purpose selected.
Using a pair of tweezers, the animals against a blotting paper then press where the sting left. On average ten such Spike are required for filling a vial.
Now the bee venom from the Blotter is solved, and bottled in vials.
A part of the preparation process to an ointment.
More and more people are free from their suffering... with the help of science and - bees.
05. England: Day of the Derby for 163 years is England's classic sporting event the Derby... and on the day of the Derby, the whole world looks to the historic racetrack on Epsom downs.
It is people pleasure, holiday, Sports Festival, mass trip... all together and all messed up. Despite the rain, 250,000 spectators have been published. The newsreel has built a 40-meter tall tower to hold the race in all phases.
The Royal couple with the Queen Mother and Princess Elizabeth drive the course along and go to the grandstand.
The start of the race: the parade of the 17 horses and jockeys.
That's the crass outsider "Airborne", whose Starter turns out not as the unlucky number 13. Shortly before the start, the Sun breaks through.
The 1946 Derby runs.
One and a half miles - almost two and a half kilometers are manageable--opportunity enough for varied periods, exciting moments and surprises. Forays from midfield bring first no change - still flies the top closed. But now comes the twist that all waiting for: the grey horse no. 13 "Airborne" comes up, the middle - and passes up to the top flight.
The outsiders happens all favourites and win with a length!
This is the fourth time that a grey horse won the Derby in 163 years.
50: 1 1946 brought the 13 - in the Derby.
01. Industrial Reconstruction
Coal is the power-source of reconstruction, basic element of private and public economy.
To-day, the output of each single mine determines success and speed of the program of recovery.
In the Fortuna-pit near Cologne the dr[...]ing machines haul brown coal directly from a depth of 80 meters.
Conveyor-belts transport it to the briquette factory, where the coal is crushed and pressed.
The machine emits the briquettes and belts carry them to the waiting trucks.
Part of the output is branched off for war-reparations, everything else goes to German industrie and households.
The Leitz-works in Wetzlar have resumed production of the famous Leica-cameras, microscopes and other scientific and medical instruments. Doctors, Universities and hospitals are the first to obtain these [...]oods.
The plant already amploys 3.000 workers. This is the Leica-departmant.
One day's output of Leicas proves the regained capacity of the works, an important factor für Germany's export and foreign trade.
02. News flashes from Germany:
a. Rest Home For Disabled Soldiers
The former old-age home at Starnberg Lake has been converted into a rest home for disabled soldiers. Here they receive for several weeks hospitality, rest and medical treatment.
The days are filled out with sport, games and other recreation.
The bell calls them to dinner.
The Administration of the Munich catering establishments is in charge of the administration of the rest centre.
b. Musical boxes
The Municipal Collection of musical instruments - which was evacuated during the war to Oberpfalz comes back to Munich.
The collection contains about 3.000 instruments of all countries and periods. For the time they have a provisional home, later the former villa of Martin Borman in Munich will house the whole collection.
This is a Claviciterium, a predecessor of the piano, 16th century.
Musical boxes of all kinds and sizes are to [...] here, too.
This is the most elaborate one ...
And this is the world's smallest musical box, 17th century. 1 and 1/2 inches high - made of ducat-gold and weighing only about one and a half ounces.
c. The childrens ship, Hamburg
During the summer months, the children from the worst damages parts of Hamburg are taken by steamer to the beautiful green countryside out of town.
The childrens ship is an institution of the Hamburg School athorities. Every day, 6 to 700 kids enjoy the opportunity to leave the ruins of the city behind them and recoperate in fresh air and sun.
The teachers accompany their pupils.
The openair picnic is a welcome finish to this school outing 1946.
d. Female registrar
Another new profession available for women is now that of a registrar and in Berlin-Reinickendorf Miss Dora Brunzlow already administers the office of a marriage registry.
Formerly Berlin's first female registrar was employed in a solicitor's office. Later she took a "course of instruction for applicants for registrar's offices" and thus gained the technical and psychological experience necessary for dealings with knowledge and judgement of men for the about-to-be-newly wed.
03. News flashes from America:
a. Aircraft Carrier Midway
The American carrier "Midway" has been transferred to Polar exploration. Cruising in the Arctic she now tests men and machines under Polar conditions.
The planes are covered against the cold. Masked against the bitter weather the men experiment with protection for equipment in the sudden blizzards of the far north. The new Arctic fashions make their wearers look like phantastic Mars-people. But they prooved themselves to be the best and most reliable protection against severe frost.
Before the take-off the motors are heated with warm air and a mechanical brush sweeps clear the flight deck.
Ready for the take-off - the propellors are turned over - and with the aid of catapult equipment plane after plane takes off for a flight over the arctic ice cap. These tests resulted in valuable scientific and practical experiences concerning living conditions and communications in the arctic zone.
Thousands of tons of water per second pour over the Grand Coulee Dam in the State of Washington, one of the most magnificent technical structures in America. The melting of this years unusually heavy mountain snows increased the volume of the flood which the dam has to control.
The Grand Coulee Dam also serves as bridge and street. A great flock of 3.000 sheep are on their way to cross Columbia River to better summer grazing lands
Into New York harbour sails a ship with over eight hundred victims of Nazi persecution. Many of them spent long terrible years in the horror camps of Aushwitz, Dachau and Theresienstadt.
Past the Statue of Liberty they sail towards a happier future.
In notorious Aushwitz Camp, these girls' arms were indelibly tatooed with prison numbers.
75 of the arriving children are orphans. Many of them are without any records of their homes - or even their nationalities.
Relatives and friends wait to meet the newcomers and they get a welcome they will never forget.
d. Circular Dwelling-house
The housing shortage in America leads to all kinds of experiments. In the State of Kansas this circular dwelling was built of lightweight metals and plastic.
Its inventor points to the following advantages: the round house needs no foundations, the revolving roof can be used for mechanical ventilation and - there are no arkward corners to bump into.
Space is utilised to the utmost. The interior, too, reveals some novel practical ideas: rotating wardrobes ... linen drawers on the conveyor belt system.
A round house may seem strange but, in a housing shortage, people are giving attention to all new ideas.
e. Roxas elected President of Philippines
Thoughout the Philippines a presidential election is held. The election campaign for the two candidates Osmena and Roxas was marked by high popular interest and wide electioneering.
[...] who himself voted in Manila, was elected president with a clear majority.
He will lead the Philippines to complete independence in July of this year.
Soon after his election Roxas travels to America for an official visit and a friendly personal discussion with President Truman.
Europe's largest bee-keeping establishment in Illertissen (Swabia) shelters more than 1000 swarms. Besides honey and wax, a valuable remedy for sciatica, gout and rheumatism is produced here from the poisonous sting of the bee.
As the bee loses its life together with its sting only the oldest and weakest are taken for that purpose.
With the aid of tweezers the little animal is pressed against a soft paper in which the sting remains.
Approximately 10 stings are necessary to fill one tube of the medicine.
Now, the bee-poison is dissolved, concentrated and filled in vials.
Part of the preparation is made into ointments.
Thus more and more people are healed ... with the aid of science and ... the bees.
Since 163 years the Derby is Englands classic sporting event ... and on the day of the Derby the eyes of the world look toward the historical track on Epsom Downs.
It is a national rally, a holiday, a mass-excursion ... all rolled in one.
Inspite of the rain 250.000 spectators crowd the stands.
For the newsreel a 120 foot high tower was erected so as to cover the race in all its phases.
The King and Queen, Queen-mother Mary and Princess Elizabeth drive along the course and then mount the royal stand.
The Derby begins with a parade of the 17. competing horses and jockeys.
This is the outsider "Airborne" whose number 13 did not prove so unlucky.
Shortly before the take-off the sun comes out of the clouds.
The Derby of 1946 is under way.
One and a half mile have to be covered - enough for lots of thrilling moments and surprises.
The middle field gains - but the lead never changes.
Suddenly the grey horse No. 13, "Airborne", darts forward - passes the whole field - and takes the lead.
The outsider beats all the favourites and wins by a length!
This is only the fourth time in 163 years that a grey horse wins the Derby.
No. 13 pays 50 : 1 ... in the Derby of 1946.
