A sprint criterium is held at the cycling track "Groenewoud" in Nijmegen. The cyclers Jef van de Vijver, Jan Derksen and Arie van Vliet participate. Van de Vijver wins the first race; Derksen the second; Van Vliet the third. Van Vliet is also the overall winner; 0:03 Derksen (no.3);  00:38 and 00:55 Van Vliet (with glasses).

During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
