  • Description

    United States of America.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Budding 'white hopes' get ready for a little war of their own."

    High angle shot of large group of young boys (between 4 and 8 years old?) wearing boxing gloves and little shorts and T-shirts with the word "Navy" emblazoned across them. A trainer stands in front of them and spectators sit behind. The trainer shouts out instructions and the boys put up their dukes and pull various boxing poses. M/S of the boys as the trainer shouts "left, right, left, right" and they punch the air. Cute M/Ss of the boys. One of the littlest ones nearly falls over as he wiggles around as he punches the air.

    "Anybody's war - " reads an intertitle. Boxing ring full of boys - a little older then the toddlers seen earlier.

    M/S of two youngsters boxing - about 3 or 4 years old. The trainer crouches between them and other boys spectate. One of them knocks his opponent down.

    Story has no music.
