SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE: The original release sheet reads: "THE BIG PICTURE" travels from the U.S. to Germany and Japan -- From the United States to Germany, Japan and back, the traveling camera crews of THE BIG PICTURE record various scenes of the Army's activities around the world. The first story deals with the Code of Conduct for members of the Armed Forces of the United States. The Code is dramatically presented by a series of six posters. How these posters came into being is the basis for this report. The next coverage is given to "Operation Red Corpuscle," a story of giving. It concerns an entire company of men stationed in Germany, and how they, as a unit, gave their blood that others might live. Another story takes place in Japan. It is about milk and how this nourishing liquid, taken for granted here at home, reaches Army personnel five thousand miles away in the Far East. The final feature starts in the United States and is really unfinished, for the leading characters may soon find themselves serving in the most remote corners of the world. This is the story of the men who are learning to operate the Army's newest source of power -- derived from the atomic reactor. FOR MORE INFORMATION:
