Baseball game between Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox, likely Memorial Day 1916

A baseball game being played at Navin Field, in Detroit, Michigan. Based on the uniforms, the size of the crowd, and the action seen in the clip, this is very likely the second game of a doubleheader played by the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox May 30, 1916, on the holiday then known as Decoration Day (now Memorial Day). Clip opens with shots of one White Sox player, two Tigers players hitting. Camera pans across packed stands. Tigers outfielder and Hall of Famer Ty Cobb (with split grip on bat) reaches out to get a hit. White Sox catcher Ray Schalk removes mask, gets ready for throw. Detroit player tries to score; Schalk receives the ball, applies the tag. Umpire's call is difficult to discern. Action shifts to an overhead view. Three White Sox players score on a hit, the last one sliding past an attempted tag by Detroit catcher Oscar Stanage. Detroit pitcher Harry Coveleski gets final out of the inning. Detroit player reaches first base on infield error. The next batter pokes a ball over first baseman for a single. Other Tigers players hit. The Tigers would win this game 9-8.

The City of Detroit acquires new Ford V8 sedan automobiles for its Police Department

First scene shows a line of new Ford V8 sedan cars parked side by side along the edge of a highway. The closest car displays a sign reading: "Ford, V8 Detroit Police Department." A spokesperson stands in front of the car and delivers some remarks. Next scene shows a white car parked next to the line of police cars, with a large sign on its roof and writing on its door. (The writing is difficult to decipher.) Individual Police officers are then seen standing next to each of the new Ford V8 automobiles, which are lined up along the highway edge, almost out of sight. Then the Police officers begin to drive the cars away, one at a time, successively, in a single file motorcade. Ford Company executives and Detroit city officials pose for a group picture. Ford Company Chief of Internal Security, Harry Bennett is standing to the left of a uniformed Police officer (who may be James E. McCarty). Bennett converses with Police Commissioner John P. Smith to his left. Closeups of segments of the group. Views of the officials dispersing and some more closeups. Finally, the new cars leave in a "parade" of sorts, led by motorcycle police. Traffic is stopped for them as they drive away from the photo site.
