Kennedy and Republican nominee U.S. Vice President Richard Nixon in in New York, United States on 21st October 1960. NBC News correspondent John Chancellor asks a question to Senator Kennedy in relation with U.S. relations with the Soviet Union. Correspondent Chancellor asks if Russians have resumed testing of nuclear devices as per news from Atomic Energy Commission of Washington and if the U.S. would resume its own nuclear testing in 1961. Senator Kennedy replies to the question and says that the next President of the United States should make one last effort to secure an agreement on the cessation of nuclear tests. He mentions the Conference for the Reduction and Limitation of Armaments from 1932-1934 held in Geneva, Switzerland. Kennedy says that he believes the effort should be made once more by who so ever is elected the President of the United States. Senator Kennedy says that if they fail in making the effort, the responsibility will be clearly on the Russians and then they'll have to meet their responsibilities for the security of the United States, and they may have to test underground. He says that there may be testing in outer space. Senator Kennedy says that he is most concerned about the whole problem of the spread of atomic weapons. ABC News correspondent Quincy Howe asks the Vice President to comment. Vice President Nixon says that the Soviet Union is filibustering.

Japanese film using various kinds of imagery and analogies to illustrate Japan's National frustrations in 1933.

General of the Imperial Japanese Army Baron Sadao Araki speaks for a while, with the National flag of Japan (Sun-mark flag) in the background. A group of Japanese hikers is seen on the windy slope of a snow-covered mountain. Camera pans across the snowy scene. Closeups of individual hikers, who seem intimidated by the prospect of continuing their journey. Next, they are seen climbing the mountain, using picks, and lifelines, in an experienced manner. As the leader reaches the summit, he secures their lifeline and assists those behind as they arrive. Shadow of the leader is cast on the snow at the summit. As they cross a Crevasse, one of the climbers falls in, but his descent is stopped by the lifeline. Others work securing the line and pulling him up. With their help, he gains footing up the side of the crevasse and climbs out. Scene shifts completely to the Palace of Nations, Geneva, Switzerland, home of the League of Nations. Inside, Japan's chief delegate, Foreign Minister Yosuke Matsuoka, is seen objecting to the League's report charging Japan with responsibility for the hostilities in Manchuria. Animated map shows Europe with arrow pointing to Geneva, Switzerland. A cartoon explosion rises there and drifts East to encircle Japan in its smoke, transforming into a steel chain around Japan and environs. It shrinks, successively tightening its grip, choking Japan into its home islands, where the Japanese national Sun-mark flag flies. A train arrives at a crowded station. The crowd contains many persons displaying protest banners and waving small Japanese National flags. Many police are amongst the crowd, maintaining order. Next, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yosuke Matsuoka, arrives from Geneva to report to the Emperor and Government. He steps from a limousine, and walks across an esplanade, followed by many officials. He and they, all bow toward the Imperial Palace, as a photographer takes their picture. For a moment, Yosuke Matsuoka holds a handkerchief to his face as he proceeds across the esplanade. The animated map appears again, this time showing the encircling cartoon smoke ring looping out to enclose part of Manchuria, where the flag of Manchukuo now flies. Scene shifts back to the mountain climbers, who now are descending from the summit. View of clouds below them as they stand with arms raised celebrating their accomplishment with what appears to be three "Banzai" shouts. Final scene is a view from moving railroad train of Mount Fuji and other views of Mount Fuji.
