"'Boy Howdy! This is our idea of a sandwich,' exclaims Audrey Hoesch and Glen Hillgartner as they bite into the first portion of the world's largest ham sandwich today at the World's Fair, while Phillip R. Reed, treasurer of Armour & Company; Ed Graule, chef, and John R. Thompson, Jr., look on. This eight foot square sandwich on which more than 1,200 children feasted, weighed 325 pounds."
