This film consists of three segments. The first deals with the chief of police of Altha, Florida, who comments on his "no-crime lawman" reputation. Viewers see him visit an elderly lady on his rounds, then a short interview with his wife. He then discusses his philosophy of maintaining law and order. The next segment features Asian women dressed in traditional Chinese and Japanese attire. They model outfits outdoors and indoors while drinking tea and playing a Chinese harp. The final segment features a collection of William Watson's ceramic vases on display at the LeMoyne Gallery in Tallahassee. Several close-ups reveal the detail in many of the pieces. Produced by WFSU-TV.
