A town in Greenland sponsors a dance with company of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter, Northland.
United States USA Date:1940 Duration:34 sec Sound:NO SOUND
A sign, bearing images of the American and Danish flags, reads, in Danish and English: "Dance Tonight." At bottom of the sign is a silhouette of the ship and the words: " U.S.C.G. Northland." Local Greenland native Inuit couples dance to the accompaniment of a local band of musicians. The location appears to be a small gymnasium, with a basketball hoop seen at one end. Several of the dancers appear to be U.S. Coast Guardsmen. A large group of spectators stand on a balcony overlooking the gym dance floor. Many young women are seen. Some enjoy refreshments. The hall is adorned with a huge American flag, in front of which a life preserver, from the ship, is suspended. Lettering on it reads: "Northland. U.S. Coast Guard."
