    Location of events unknown - a field or sports ground.

    1st event is gymnastics; parallel bars; a line of men come up; walk in between the bars; swing themselves up and flip over. Then 1 at a time; they perform another move. Next 2 guys do tricks in synchronisation. Finally; the group all pose together; some doing handstands on bars; some on the ground; while others stand on their feet and lean out from the bars w/ backs arched.

    Long jump. A series of men come running and leap from a line across the ground; landing in sand; some officers record the distances. Somehow it doesn't seem like they're jumping very far.
