"'Be a swell person -- Take an Orphan to the Fair' is the motto of the movement started by the Mandel Brothers, State street department store, to help charitable Chicagoans take under-privileged children on World's Fair outings. Shown here is Leon Mandel, general manager, with the first of the groups to visit the exposition, composed of boys from the Bohemian Orphan asylum, the Illinois Protestant Children's home, and the Chicago Home for Jewish children. A special department, under the management of Mrs. Jennie Pervin, has been organized in the club women's bureau on the ninth floor of the store, to assist persons planning orphan parties; such persons may write, call in person, or telephone State 1500. Orphans, in groups of three or more, will be admitted to the Fair grounds for five cents each."

19. "'Like this?' Don McNeill, famous NBC announcer, takes the 'mike' and the control head phones at the World's Fair radio auditions contest and talks to himself. He doesn't seem to think much of his own efforts. McNeill, who takes over the position of master of ceremonies in the new Pontiac broadcast scheduled from WEAF, New York next month, was the guest star at the audition contest. He also acted as one of the judges and turned out to be one of the toughest critics that have yet acted in that capacity."

"'Murderers Row' of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, which today defeated the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, 18 to 17, in a fiercely fought softball game of seven inning duration in Grant Park adjoining the World's Fair, boasts a group of real sluggers. This quartet, reading left to fight; Bill Fantozzi (violin); Joe Mourek (trumpet); Sam Dolnik (violin) and Dan Seidenberg (first cellist), fired a volley of homers, triples and doubles, to score the triumph. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra appears twice daily in concerts at Swift Bandshell at the World's Fair, while the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is playing at Ford Gardens, also at A Century of Progress."
