The footage in this film begins with the girls' basketball team in Lytle, Texas in 1938-1941. The film also contains scenes of students leaving the school and getting on school buses, as well as footage of adult residents standing at their storefronts around town. 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.
