06. spring is here!
01 barrel spring is here! And with him one of in signs of spring in Vienna: the Bader.
Bader, the Pottering man, is one of Vienna's most popular Street characters. For half a century, he turns on streets and courts his same old, good lyre therefore... for 50 years. When he starts to subdued, the window opens. Father admits the tool bissel mother lie, the wash tub - and the children hold hands and dance to the same music as the grandfather became the grandmother of the hand for the first time. Spring comes in many forms... but many Viennese saying his best mask is as Bader, the Pottering man.
02. hippo other people think the Lenz is the easiest way to recognize a wide big mouth and a concrete thick skin bark. Which Of course not the Schönbrunner Hippo "Mary" is meant, but... the 5 days old "MD" son. -"Marie", a massive child of love, of spring, and a couple of pachyderms, became the Easter surprise - sensation of the animal park. Large and small fell in love with the prustende water-baby. "MD" lost the mother shortly after birth, he must be using the bottle, that is raising with the rubber hose. So you Pat a hippo - or rather say: a nil population. And so it - sucking due to lack of other related license requiring pants.
03. hats a hippopotamus is still no spring - but a new collection spring hats admits no error: spring is here!
Step right up, ladies: this constitutes paradise is something each Eva. Provisionally mostly for the Cabinet, but for the eye - because Vienna hats are are looking for export goods, transformed into foreign exchange, help economic and reconstruction. Small hats - great effects.
Each flavor comes at his own expense. Gekniffter felt refined large flattering brims or just a little bit. Flirtatious trimmings from a thousand and one material or the big, bold, simple line.
Some things appear some too strict, too bizarre. But suddenly they say: who is the right person! (Is the mode with the love is right...)
The spring took jets? No hats!
01. Truman before Congress:
Help for Greece and Turkey
Congress assembled at the Capitol in Washington to receive an important communication. Pres. Truman summoned the representatives of both houses to hear of wide-spread program of help for Greece and Turkey. The President based his speech on the fact that both European states had asked for the assistance of the USA, to preserve their political and economic independence.
Greece was badly hurt by the war and by post-war difficulties. In spite of all efforts by UNRRA, starvation and disease had caused political chaos, which to date made economic recovery impossible. 85% of the children have tuberculosis. Truman also pointed out that Turkey as an independant state would need financial assistance, and he requested a loan of 400 million dollars.
(original sound, Truman)
The President's address marks a decisive change in U.S. policy overseas.
02. News flashes from Germany:
a. a) Berliners to the Ruhr
Berlin contributes to the reconstruction of the mining industry. Each day brings new volunteers from the Spree-River to the Ruhr-district.
200.000 miners are engaged in Ruhr-mines ... 300.000 are needed to get coal in full production. The applicants get a thorough examination. The examining doctor came from the Ruhr district. Only healthy, fit and under 35-year-old workers are accepted.
Each month 600 miners-of-the-future leave Berlin to start their new job in the Ruhr.
During a four day conference in Berlin, the Association of Film Producers of the U.S. Zone was formed. General McClure, Chief of Information Control Division, spoke to the 18 licencees, producers and directors.
Erich Pommer, American Film Control Officer, was also present.
Soon we will hear in the Munich and Berlin studios: "Lights!" "Quiet!" "Camera!".
Palucca dances again! After a long recess the famous dancer starts a tour through northwestern and southern Germany.
With Isadora Duncan any Mary Wigman she is numbered among the great dancers.
Many towns will see her again. And a new generation will know the great expressionist dances of Palucaa.
Two important meetings
The Hamburg Senate was the scene of the first postwar meeting of the "Co-operatives." Burgomaster-in-Chief Brauer welcomed the guests of honour and the representatives of the "Co-ops" of the three Western Zones.
Dr. Agartz, director of the Two-Zone Economic Office. Two problems were points of discussion during the meeting: the reconstruction of the "Co-ops" destroyed by the Nazis, and the "Co-ops" in Germany's economic life.
In Munich the first general congress of the Bavarian Trade Union was convened. This congress represents 400.000 Bavarian trade-unionists.
Representatives of Military Government, Civil Governments and the city of Munich participated.
General Muller, Director of Military Government. The Chairman of the meeting, Lorenz Hagen, in his opening speech said.
Then General Muller addressed the audience. He declared that the Trade Unions were the basis of a free, peaceful and sound Germany. Among others, the Bavarian Prime Minister spoke.
The Congress O.K. 'd important decision concerning economy, prisoners-of-war and refugees. This Union is the largest organization founded in post-war Germany.
04. Pilgrimage to Bombay
Thousands of pilgrims from all over India came to Bombay to pray for world peace. Dancing is included in the Hindu religious ceremonies.
The high-priest of the Brahmans is worshipped as a Saint. His attendance gives the feast unusual importance. Priests, scientists and other members of the highest Indian castes go to the Holy Shrine. Here they pray for days and nights on end.
Crowded around the fires in which incense is burned, the believers pray for heaven's blessing.
For centuries Hindus and Moslems have been enemies. Mahatma Gandhi is again on the road. He visits town and country and begs the people to settle their differences.
Brahmas and Mohammedan differences influence even private family-life.
The unity of 300 Million Indians is at stake.
Nuremberg was the scene of a four-Lande-meeting in gymnastics. Bavaria, Wurttemberg, Hesse and Baden were the competitors.
Theo Wied. Wurttemberg, was best on the parallel-bars. Strobel, Wurttemberg, at the horse. And now Bavaria's representative, Adolf Dossler. And finally Ino Standgl at the bar.
Stangl was also best in single gymnastics. Second Theo Wied.
Bavaria scored highest marks, followed by wurttemberg, Hesse, and Baden.
b. Motor Cycle race
In America motor-cycle races are often held on the sands of a beach. Here is one of the best known races of its kind, in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The race is run over 350 kilometers.
The leading group becomes smaller and smaller.
Finally Jonny Spikular from Milwaukee wins the race.
06. Spring is here!
Spring is here, and with it came one of the surest messengers of spring in Vienna: the "Xandl."
The Xandl is the most popular man on the streets of Vienna - for over half a century.
When he begins to play windows are opened, father puts away his tools for a moment, mother stops working, and the kids join hands and dance to the music our grandfathers and grandmothers knew. Spring wears many masks, but the Viennese think that the Xandl is the best.
Some people celebrate spring by going to the zoo to see the hippopotamus' 5 day-old son "Sepperl", the spring offering of a thick-skinned couple! Everybody loves the little water-baby. "Sepperl" shortly after his birth lost his mother and has to be fed through a hose.
A Hippo may not make a spring - but a display of new hats undoubtedly demonstrates that spring is here. Here all "Eves" find interesting things; not for their own use, however, as Viennese hats are needed for export and are converted into foreign exchange to help industry and reconstruction. Little hats - big effects. You will find the right hat for yourself. Large ones and broad ones - or just a little piece of felt, cunningly decorated. Some of them seem a bit strange, but finally you find one, and no other is right for your! (In this fashion is like love ...) Spring arrives - - with hats!
