Western Samoa, Lotus Land of the Pacific, is administered by New Zealand under United Nations trusteeship. The Administration brings to the Samoans those European services which will benefit them, and aids them in preserving all the best of their own ways of living. With modern amenities at hand, Samoan life goes on much as it has always done in the thatched villages amid the groves. The slim canoes still glide in from the fishing grounds, the food is cooked in ovens of heated stones, and the flower-decked girls sing and dance beneath the palms. B&W 17 mins. 35mm 1,550 ft.
