Scope & Content: The original release sheet reads: GRIM TOLL IN WAKE OF PACIFIC CATALYSM: Disaster report from the battered rim of the Pacific, following the devastating earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that triggered a 10,000 mile tidal wave felt as far as Japan, the Philippines, and Hawaii. Harrowing scenes of disaster and privation from Chile and the Philippines where one of the worst tropical storms in many years swept in following the tidal wave. NON-VIOLENT STRIKE IN PARIS: In Paris, a group of non-violent demonstrators stage a sit-down strike on the Champs Elysee, just to show their philosophy. As the gendarmes haul them away, they never lift a finger. Limp but triumphant. VAN CLIBURN IN MOSCOW: American concert pianist Van Cliburn receives a jubilant welcome in Moscow, as he arrives to begin a month tour of the Soviet, where he began his meteoric rise to musical fame. SPORTS TRAGEDY, THRILLS, AT INDIANAPOLIS: The Indianapolis 500 mile Speedway classic is marred by tragedy before the race starts, when a makeshift tower, with over 100 clinging to it, topples onto the crowd below. In the race itself, Jim Rathmann wins in record time after a sensational 400 mile duel with last year's winner Rodger Ward. "ST. PADDY" WINS EPSOM DERBY: At Epsom, 350,000 in carnival mood turn out for the Epsom Derby, England's greatest flat race. The Queen and Prince Philip are among the vast and colorful crowd that cheers to the echo the winning, home-stretch surge of England's own "St. Paddy", a pre-race 7 - 1 shot.
