New Methods Feed the North: To defeat their ancient enemy, hunger, Inuit and First Nations Peoples of Canada's north learn game conservation measures and Arctic gardening. We see how government wardens and forest rangers help them improve and increase reindeer and buffalo herds and undertake cultivation of garden crops to supplement their basic meat diet. A Brain, a Voice - and Courage: From his bed in Camp Hill Hospital, Halifax, Walter Callow, a World War I veteran, totally blind and paralyzed, operates a bus service for wheelchair invalids. From Ivy Walls to Sea and Squalls: In this item, university Navy cadets are seen at a naval base receiving their basic training, and later at sea putting their knowledge into practice in action-packed battle exercises.
