01 America: The "flying post" Washington takes first flying post office in operation, the that is undoubtedly the latest and fastest of all post offices.
Where else passengers in comfortable armchairs, post bags be stowed here.
Then the whole post in the air – flies and in flight, it goes beyond Washington.
Deep down is located, while up here 'Flying post offices' officials just sort the letters, as their terrestrial counterparts.
Only all - in the fly goes with them.
02. pictures of the edertal dam reconstruction again commissioned the edertal dam, originally, built to raise the water level of the river Weser, was in May 1943 by an English air mine demolished. Through the 70 meters wide and 30 meters deep hole in the wall, crashed enormous masses of water Valley and flooded the territories of the Edertales.
The loss of energy caused a significant decline in the war industry. Meanwhile, the separation barrier was restored. Today the edertal dam with two power stations a peaceful picture will again be offering and is used to power supply of next areas, as well as the regulation of the water level on the river Weser and the Mittellandkanal.
Engineers and machinists to monitor the proper functioning of the entire system to the measuring instruments. Westphalia, Hanover, Thuringia and Hesse, as well as the northern areas until after Hamburg up be powered in part by the edertal dam. Their turbines provide electricity for the time being on average 6 million kilowatts. The maximum capacity is 25 million kilowatts - at full sea -.
03. Shanghai today Shanghai - the metropolis of the East - is today a city of seven million inhabitants; more than twice as many people as before the war crowd in the streets and hectic life pulsates in town and port. The Japanese occupation is over, but the civil war raging in the North of the country and casts its shadow on Shanghai. Hardly a city of the world experienced a major boom - hardly a city has greater opposition within their walls. In the movie palaces, one sees Hollywood movies - Tarzan and Marlene Dietrich to be their traction here.
At the railway stations but the traits that have day-long delays waiting for the masses.
Three million have no quarter - they sleep on the streets and go to the station the next day - when the train is Not yet, they remain in Shanghai — often forever.
Seven million To want live. Goods of all kinds from all over the world are unloaded in the port and all precautions are taken to secure the goods against the access by black merchants.
The value of money varies. Gold is weighed with many notes, jewelry and family treasures are you're looking for coin.
If something to the Exchange has, without money and exchanges in the markets where everyone offers and estimates, envelops, or rejects. A labyrinth of stalls, armies of hawkers and restless prospects - seven million diligent and rushed people into the wild post-war whirls of a world city - also primitivstes life of the far East - that is Shanghai today...
04. America England Germany: war work the war invalids aid is an international problem with a dual task: on the one hand the Kriegsbeschädigten career opportunities to create again - On the other hand their work output of the entire population can be used to make.
In America, there are nearly 300,000 war invalids, for them it has found new ways of professional training and successfully followed.
Even work on the tiny parts of the clock is possible with the help of special work prostheses.
The artificial limbs, which are, at the same time spare hand and tool can be replaced as needed. England also has thousands of Kriegsbeschädigten must be queued in the work process. You are working in part again in their old professions. Drill files, and even banging you can with this arm.
So help the hard Kriegsbeschädigten through meaningful employment in the reconstruction of England.
Also in Germany are anywhere similar workshops in the making! Here the disabled work in Flensburg in the former naval engineer officer school. It trains and employs amputees locksmith, blacksmith, auto mechanic, electrician, Carpenter, Weber and applied artists.
There are about 21,000 war alone in Schleswig-Holstein. You To want not a charity, but despite their disabilities back productive economic life incorporated into be.
And here A few products of the plant. Special training and specialized knowledge make the Kriegsbeschädigten already the most valuable helpers in the economy and reconstruction.
05. updates soon: a. "Queen Elizabeth", England "Queen Elizabeth" moves to New York. In Southampton is the world's largest ship, "Queen Elizabeth", ready for the trip to New York.

The 83,000 tons moving - tractors take over the giant ship - and then start the machines to the first ride in the guise of peace.
Troop carrier, "Queen Elizabeth" has dealt with already a half a million miles in the war. Now get to the maiden voyage as a passenger steamer - as the largest and most beautiful ship in the world.
b. DANA, Germany, licensing, the German General News Agency - was the DANA DANA in Bad Nauheim. -passed in German hands. General Robert Mac cuter, the head of the American news control, gave a retrospective about the DANA in the past years.
Then he handed over the licence certificate to the 77 Publisher of 41 German newspapers in the U.S. zone passes into whose possession the DANA as a cooperative company.
Editor in Chief Curt Frenzel thanks on behalf of all licensees for the confidence placed in the German press. He called the leitmotifs of DANA: truth, objectivity, independence and promptness.

Bassermann, once the resplendent star of the German and Austrian Theatre, knocked out after all offered him top honors Nazi cultural policy and voluntarily went into exile after the Switzerland and America. He acquired the position and the fame of a master of his art is on the new.
His stint in Vienna means a "curtain up" for a new round of character dance Bassermann ' scher figures.
d. French elections, France, referendum in France was acceptance or rejection of the new Constitution - that's why. There are only two choices: Yes or no.
The well-known film actor Maurice Chevalier in the election.
And the politician: Thorez, the leader of the Communists.
In a small village, General de Gaulle chooses.
And Prime Minister Bidault.
French people decided by a narrow majority for the adoption of the new Constitution.
06. "with the stroke of the Gong is..." just 22. Gong. Man sets his clock and white, this time right on the second. But where does the broadcasting the exact time? By the observatories - many were destroyed in the war. But the establishment of the Observatory in Bergedorf near Hamburg was preserved and today helps us to determine the so-called standard time.
Actually this time comes from the stars - one measures the passages of the stars through the Meridian and compares these observations with the running of the Observatory watches. As a result, inaccuracies can be compensated up to a hundredth of a second. These 3 watches are all Normaluhren of railway postal and broadcasting. Placing small weights on the pendulum correct the clock to fractions of a second.
Exact time determines the course of our existence. 8: 00 35. Whether trading, whether traffic, whether business or private, always means it be punctual to the minute on the second. Also at the Rendez-vous. But if 'she' will be on time, that isn't in the stars that determine the normal time.
07. sports: a. horse racing, Newmarket, England, England was the last great horse racing of the season Instead of the famous Cesarewitsch race.
No mean feat is to get 27 horses flawlessly from the start. The launch succeeds, and the mass field is closed over the distance.
The Favorites of the race are in the midfield, and so the tip changes all the time.
Anyway develop hard fighting for second, third and fourth place. Even in the middle of the race, the output is completely open — every horse of the Group has still a chance to win; and every weather looks to win even his Renner.
In the final stretch At last a horse loosens itself from the other box and in the sharp Sprint wins the French horse L'amiral in glorious style with three-quarter length.
(b). Powerboat race, United States of America's biggest speedboat race is the competition for the cup of the President registered on the Potomac in Washington.
President Truman observed the boats that flit over a distance of 20 kilometers above the water.
The favorite, that Miss Great Lakes, boat goes into the lead.
With an engine of 1,700 HP driver Dan Foster from California reached 150 km/h.
The trophy from the hands of President Truman - the highest price for the highest performance.
The "Flying Post Office"
From Washington takes off the first flying post office, beyond any doubt the most modern and fastest one. Where the passengers used to lounge in comfortable chairs, mail bags are now stored.
The post office takes off and flies over Washington.
Far beneath is the Capitol, while the officials in the "Flying Post Office" sort the letters just as their earth-bound colleagues do far below.
A new peak of postal and flying efficiency.
02. Pictures from reconstruction:
Eder Valley Dam again in operation
The Eder Valley Dam, originally constructed to increase the water level of the river Weser, was smashed in May 1943 by an English airmine. Through the breach - 70 metres wide and 30 metres deep - the floods rushed down the valley and inundated the area of the Eder valley.
This loss of power caused a considerable set-back to the German war industry. Meanwhile, the damage has been repaired. Today the Eder Valley Dam with its two power plants offers again serves peaceful purposes. It supplies the power for vast areas and regulates the water levels of the river Weser and of the Mittellandkanal.
Engineers and mechanics check the smooth working of the plant at the measuring indstruments Westphalia, Hanover, Thuringia, Hesse and parts of the North-German areas as far as Hamburg get their power supply from the Eder Valley Dam. The turbines at present produce an average of 6 million kilowatts of electric power. Top capacity - with storage lake full is 25 million kilowatts.
03. Shanghai today
Shanghai - metropolis of the East - is today a town of 7 million inhabitants. More than twice as much people as before the war crowd the streets and hectic life pulsates in the city and the harbour.
The Japanese occupation is over but the civil war rages in the north of the country and throws its shadow also over Shanghai.
There is scarcely another town in the world which experienced a bigger boom - there is scarcely another town which combines sharper contrasts with its walls. In the movie palaces there are Hollywood films - Tarzan and Marlene Dietrich pull in the cistomers here like elsewhere.
But at the railway station the masses await the trains which are overdue for days.
Three millions have no shelter - they sleep in the streets and the next day they return to the station - if the train does not yet arrive they remain in Shanghai - many of them for ever.
Seven millions want to live. In the port goods of all kinds and from all countries are unloaded and every security measure is taken to protect the goods from the black marketeers' claws.
The money's value fluctuates. Gold is exchanged for lots of bank notes; jewellery and family heirlooms are in high demand.
He who has something to barter ignores money and barters at the markets where everybody offers and estimates, accepts or rejects. A labyrinth of stalls, ambulant dealers and restless crowds - seven millions of busy, swarming people in the wild postwar whirlpool of a metropolis - side by side with the primitive life of the Far East - that is Shanghai today.
War invalids at work
War invalids' relief is an international problem with a double issue: on the one hand to create vocational occupations for the war invalids, on the other hand to give the whole population the benefit of their products and performances.
In America there are about 300.000 war invalids.
For them new ways of vocational training were found and successfully initiated.
Even watchmaking has been made possible with the aid of special devices. The artificial lims, which simultaneously are hand and tool, can be exchanged as required.
Angland, too, has thousands of war invalids, who have to be redeployed into the labour proeess.
Many of them have resumed their former professions.
With this arm one can file, drill and even hammer.
Thus, also the invalids fully participate in England's reconstruction.
In Germany, too, similar specialized workshops are being created.The Invalids Relief in Flensburg in the former Engineer Officers School of the Navy trains and employs amputated locksmiths, smiths, mechanics, electricians, joiners and weavers.
Alone in Schleswig-Holstein there are about 21.000 war invalids. They don't want charity, they wand to become productive co-workers in spite of their disabilities.
These are some of the products made by invalids. Special training and special ability make them already today valuable helpers of economy and reconstruction.
a. "Queen Elizabeth", England
The "Queen Elizabeth" sails to New York.
In Southampton the world's biggist ship is moored - "Queen Elizabeth" - ready to sail on her first voyage to New York.

The ropes are cast. The 83.000 tons begin to move - tug-boats pull the giant vessel - and then the engines are set in motion for the first voyage in civvies.
As a troop transporter the "Queen Elizabeth" has already covered half a million miles during the war.
Now she makes her delayed maiden trip as passenger ship - as the world's biggest and finest craft.
b. DANA, Germany
License for DANA.
At Bad Nauheim the Deutsche Allgemeine Nachrichten Agentur - DANA - was laid into German hands. General Robert Mac Clure, Chief of American Information Control, reviews the history of DANA during the past year.
He presents the license document to the 77 publishers of 41 German newspaper in the US Zone, into whose possession the DANA passes as a cooperative enterprise.
Editor Curt Frenzel thanks, on behalf of all licensed publishers, for the confidence shown to the German press. He says: DANA-s motto will be: Truth, objectiveness, independence and speed.
General Mac Clure presses the key which sets the telewriter in operation.
A milestone on Germany's road towards a completely free press.
c. Bassermann in Vienna
From Zurich arrives with the Arlberg Express after an absence of 8 years, the greatest living German actor: Albert Bassermann and his wife Else.
Many friends, colleagues and official representatives meet him at Vienna West Station. Bassermann - once the most shining light of the German and Austrian stage - refused the highest honours the Nazis offered him and emigrated voluntarily to Switzerland an America.
There he again won the rank and fame of a great master of his profession.
His appearance in Vienna is a "Curtain up" for a new galaxy of Bassermann's art.
Plebiscite in France.
To accept or to reject the new constitution - that was the question.
There are only two alternatives: yes or no.
Also the celebrities cast their vote.
The screen star Maurice Chevalier.
And the politicians: Thorez, leader of the communist party.
In a little village, General de Gaulle casts his vote.
Minister President Bidault and his wife.
With a narrow majority of vates the French people decided to accept the new constitution.
06. "When you hear the gong ..."
One regulates one's watch and knows: this time is exact to the second.
But how does the radio determine the exact hour? From the observatories -
Many were destroyed in the war - but the equipment of the Bergedorf observatory near Hamburg remained intact and helps us today to determine the socalled "mean time".
Actually this mean time is derived from the stars - one measures the way of the stars across the meridian and compares it with the observatory-clocks. Thus an irregularity of one hundredth of a second can be corrected.
Exact time is indeed a "heavenly thing".
Thousands and Thousands of mantle clocks, alarm clocks, pocket- and wrist watches are set by to this mean-time-clock.
The pendulum is regulated by adding small weights. One more tiny weight and in the next 24 hours the clock will advance one tenth of a second.
Each stroke of this pendulum releases electric contacts, which transfer the rhythm of the observatory-clock to all other standard clocks in the town.
This clock relays the time signal directly to post-office, railways and radio.
Whether in trade or traffic, in business or private life, punctuality is all important.
Also for a date.
But if she will be punctual - that is not written in the stars that determiner our time ...
a. Horse race, England
In Newmarket, England, the last great horse race of the season takes place, the famous Cesarewitch Race.
It is no small matter to get off 27 horses smoothly, But ir works and the horses pass the track in a close field.
The favourits are in the middle of the field and so the lead changes rapidly.
Nevertheless, hard fights develop for the second and third places.
Half way round, the result of the race remains in the dark - each horse of the leading group has still a chance to win, and each backer still can hope for the victory of his horse.
Finally in the straight, one horse outruns the field, and by a brilliant spurt the French horse L'Amiral wins with a three-quarters length in fine style.
b. Motorboat race, USA
America's fastest boat-race is the Potomac regatta near Washington for the President's Cup. On board a cruiser President Truman watches the boats, which fly over the water covering a track of 20 kilometres.
The favourite "Miss Great Lakes", takes the lead.
With a 1.700 H.P. engine the driver Dan Foster from California reaches a spead of more than 90 M.P.H.
The Cup is presented by President Truman - the highest prize for the best performance.
