Mr. A. E. Weed placed his camera beside a high school playing field and then clearly instructed the teachers to get as many pupils as possible to perform some form of field sport within the view of the camera. We see young boys jumping a rather low high jump, young boys shot putting, young boys lurking in the background with a javelin.
