STK-ID 2334

[Remark: the arrival of a supply boat is a big event for everybody concerned.] Shot aboard ship of passengers among whom are several men in uniform. Shot of the shore, of men debarking. A scientist, pack on back, goes for a walk to study types of rock. The passengers from the ship mingle with a group of Inuits. Shot of rapids. Passengers eat lunch on beach while ship is being unloaded. An impromptu sports meet is put on for the Inuits who derive great pleasure from the sack race, and the pillow fight on a greased horizontal pole.
