1. "Congressman Richard J. Welsh, his wife and son, Richard, Jr., of California, sign the official register of the new World's Fair in the Sears Roebuck building, while Major Chester L. Fordney, of stratosphere flight fame, looks on. The congressman and his family are on their way to California from Washington. He expressed the opinion that the Fair this year is even more colorful and picturesque than A Century of Progress last year, having seen both, and declared it a sight which no one should miss."
"When Ella Nora Newholm, a post office clerk, of 118 South 14th Ave., East Duluth, Minn., stepped into
2. "When Ella Nora Newholm, a post office clerk, of 118 South 14th Ave., East Duluth, Minn., stepped into the turnstile at the 12th St. entrance to the World's Fair on Tuesday night, September 4th, she had no idea she was making history. As she dropped her ticket into the hands of the guide on the gate she became the 10,000,000th visitor to A Century of Progress Exposition. She was greeted by M.M. Tveter, comptroller of the Fair and presented with a veritable armload of gifts, among which were: a Hild floor polishing machine, a ham, a clock, and other fine presents."
