Description:

"A free and independent country with a form of government patterned after the U.S.A. located on the western part of Africa. Monrovia, its capital city, is modern and has an air of prosperity. There is an active program of new schools, improved teaching, road construction, agricultural development, and training of its defense army. Away from the city, the country is still a land of thatched roofs and scanty clothing, ritual and tribal dances. A fine documentary that tells us also of the economic growth of the country" PSA Journal, Oct. 1962, 33.
