John Kennedy and Nixon debate over the prestige of America prior to the presidential elections in the United States.

Presidential election debate held between Democratic nominee Senator John F. Kennedy and Republican nominee U.S. Vice President Richard Nixon in the United States. New York Herald Tribune newspaper correspondent Roscoe Drummond asks Senator Kennedy that how can American prestige be measured abroad. Senator Kennedy responds stating that America is identified with the cause of freedom and if other countries have to choose between America and a Communist country, they would choose America. He further speaks that there are many indications that prestige of the United States is not as high as it once was. Kennedy summarizes some of these indications and relates to it by mentioning the example of Sputnik space program by the Soviet Union in 1957 (during the Space Race). Kennedy speaks about the economic development of the Soviet Union. He says the Soviet Union will be ahead of any other country scientifically and militarily by 1970. He mentions votes by different countries in the United Nations dealing with Red China. He says that Guinea and Ghana, two independent countries now are supporting Soviet foreign policy at the UN. NBC correspondent Bill Shadel asks Richard Nixon to speak on the topic. Vice President Nixon responds by speaking about the economic development of the Soviet Union. He speaks that the Soviet Union is a very primitive economy and that the United States is well ahead economically. He says that if the United States is going to maintain its strength and its prestige, they must not only be strong militarily and economically but must be firm diplomatically also. Bill Shadel says that an entire hour was devoted to answering questions from the reporters. He says that each candidate was questioned in turn and each had the opportunity to comment on the answer of his opponent. Shadel says that the reporters were free to ask any question on any subject, neither candidate was given any advance information on any question that would be asked. He says that the fourth debate is scheduled for Friday, October twenty-first.

Stands are crowded with spectators at University of Oklahoma's Owen Field, in Norman, Oklahoma, for a game between the Oklahoma "Sooners" and "the fighting Irish" of Notre Dame, on November 16, 1957. Although Oklahoma came into the game with a 47 game winning streak,they lose this game to Notre Dame, 7 to zero. In the telling play, Quarterback Bob Williams (number 9) throws to back, Dick Lynch (number 25) , who runs around the right end, untouched, for the only touchdown in this upset game. (Stickles, of Notre Dame kicked the extra point to make it a 7-0 ballgame.) Scene shifts to presentation of the Heisman trophy to halfback, John David Crow, of Texas A&M on December 11, 1957.

Another unusual 1957 game is shown in which the players contend with rain and mud that makes play practically impossible.
