    Manor, Texas of 1937 is documented in this film where scenes of rural schoolchildren play baseball and perform gymnastics outside of the schoolhouse. Footage of the students in class are also included, where students seem to really enjoy class discussions. This film is part of a larger collection of itinerant films made by Arthur J. Higgins. Higgins was an itinerant filmmaker in the 1930s and 40s who visited towns across the country with his wife, spending several days recording posed scenes of daily life there that focused primarily on the residents, for whom the film was typically shown at a local theater.
