Winter is Here- Snow and Sleet Hit Whole East Seaboard; January 1954; Images of inches of snow settled over streets and parked cars as the camera pans across city scenes. A close-up image of a spinning tire getting nowhere in the snow. Then a group of men push a car up a hill, and a snowplow plows down a street. Birds eat at a snow-topped bird feeder and a man shovels his front walkway. Images of kids sledding.

California; Lockheed men prepare a small rocket for take off to test different wing shapes. We see the rocket blast away reaching supersonic speed. Men work on the electronics of the rocket, getting them ready to record in-flight data. We see fingers push the take-off buttons and then from the camera on the rocket, we see the wings as they react to the speed.
