1. "'Have a World's Fair cane, boys," says Leon Mandel, general manager of Mandel Brothers, state street store, to these orphans from the Bohemian Orphan asylum, the Illinois Protestant Children's home and the Chicago Home for Jewish Children. He was host Wednesday (September 26th) to the first group to visit the exposition under the store's plan to assist charitable Chicagoans in taking underprivileged children on World's Fair outings. A special department, in charge of Mrs. Jennie Pervin, has been set up in the club women's bureau on the ninth floor, to help hosts organize their groups. For full information, citizens need only write, call in person, or telephone State 1500. Orphans will be admitted to the Fair in groups of three or more for five cents each."

Brian Joseph Burns, 2 years old, 229 East Superior Street, the calm winner, seems quite satisfied to pose for the camera and watch for the 'birdie.' The contest was part of the festivities attendant on the North Side Day celebration at A Century of Progress."

4. "Smack! Together we make 15 million. That's enough for anybody. William McAvoy, (left) 10 years old thus greeted Peggy Klein, 8, as they met a reception at Swift's restaurant following the greeting of McAvoy as the nine millionth visitor to A Century of Progress - the Chicago World's Fair.

5. "The bespectacled youth on the right is Dennis O' Shea, pie-eating champion of the 1934 World's Fair. Dennis inhaled a six-inch blueberry pie in one minute and thirteen seconds to win a contest staged at the Armour Building on Children's Day. At the left is Edward Jackson, who took third place in the contest, and Bob Callow, winner of the second prize, is in the middle. Callow might have won but he overlooked a bit of the filling which dropped off onto his plate and a vigilant judge made him clean it up."
