It looks like on the London underground to the peak hours: everywhere crowded trains, platforms, escalators. The expansion of the transport network of over and under the ground powered with urgency to bring a considerable relief of current traffic needs.
08 original sports: a. freestyle wrestling, Paris this wrestling match in the free style is original in many respects: the arena is a circus in Paris – the audience a mixture of sports and sports doctors, and the exchange of views between the two fighters leaves nothing to be desired of originality. Only the referee seems to take things seriously: he thinks he's strict on the rules of this poorly regulated way of struggle.
Congratulations the winners, probably get's...!
b. underwater ball game, United States small prize question: How does imagining at the water sport particularly original: by playing ball under water. Includes: the girls a nice figure for men good ball technique - both together results in an aesthetic and intended original gameplay. The underwater game pleased himself at the time in California of popular - one can show what's in a: air – and the whole thing is in complete silence happening - a true treat.

An overly ambitious skiers has constructed is an auxiliary engine with Jet Propulsion to get better to drive. The launch is under a good star.

The cloud of grief is right - because the shot by Jet Propulsion closes with a substantial fall.
Original? To original!

21 small excited boys in Hagenbeck Zoo in Hamburg. This is an unacustomed view of the famous Viennese Boy's Choir which is now on its first post-war international tour. From Hamburg they go to Berlin, then to France, Spain and England.
The choir was inaugurated in 1472. The young singers live in the boarding school of the Viennese "Hofburg" and have - of course - to do their school-lessons besides their singing. Every one of them is a picked soloist. Five to six boys have to leave each year on account of muting of the voice.
And now: last preparations for the performance. The merry crowd from the Zoo has became the "dignified" Viennese Choir. Under conductor Haymo Täubert they give their farewell-performance in Hamburg.
07. Actualities in Brief:
a. Milch tried in Nuremberg
At Nuremberg, together with the doctor's trial, the case against the former Fieldmarshal and Inspector General of the German Airforce, Erhard Milch, has opened. Before an American Military Tribunal he has to face charges of war-crimes and crimes against humanity.
The indictment accuses him i.a. of having participated in the forced abduction of 5 millions of foreign workers and in the shooting of allied P.W. fliers; his participation is based on his former position as a leading member of the "Central Planning".
Prosecutor Denny outlined in his opening speech the personality and career of the accused and declared: "Milch chose the way of the least resistance and thus became one of the evil spirits who cast the shadow of war and crime over Germany and the world."

c. London Subway, England
In the East of London a new subway line of 7 kilometers distance was inaugurated. Transport Minister Barnes opens the line which - in future - will see a regular four minute-service.
This is what the London Subway looks like during the rush hours congested trains, platforms, rolling stairs.
Various Improvements of the transportation system above and belong ground, now under way, will bring considerable relief of present traffic-troubles.
a. All-in-Wrestling, Paris
This all-in-wrestling match is odd in many respects:
The scene is a circus in Paris - the audience a mixture of sport-fans and sport-doctors, and the fight itself is an odd as you please.
The only one who does not seem to consider it odd is the referee - who sticks to the rules of this scinewhat irregular contest.
The cheers for the winner - chin up!
b. Underwater-ball USA
Here's an easy one: what's odd about water polo? Nothing - if you don't happen to play it under water. And that exactly is happening here.
All you need is: for the girls a nice figure, for the men dash and style - both combined produce an aesthetic and certainly odd entertainment.
The underwater-polo is a popular new pastime in California - and it takes place in complete silence - a real blessing.
c. Yet propelled skis
This more noisy but no less odd. An over-ambitous sportsman has constructed a pair of yet-propelled skis - for a better take-off.
Hardly a successful venture, it seems.
The motorized skier lumbers ahead trailing a funereal smoke screen after him and the hazardous expedition ends with a big crash-landing.
Odd? Too odd!
