Storyline

Just to show they weren't just all about globe-trotting and geography, Lowell Thomas and the "Going Places" unit used Table Tennis (formerly known as Ping-Pong) as the subject, and showing how, in just a short while, it had grown to become the seventh most-popular sport in the world. Featured ping-pong/table tennis players in this short were: Sol Schiff, the American champion; Stanley Fileds (not the actor), known as the world's greatest exhibition and trick-shot player; and Ann Sigman, the No. I Ranking Woman Player at the time.
