"Chicago: New World's records in swimming are promised when these three champions start paddling in their favorite events on the program of the National A.A.U. outdoor title racing carnival in the World's Fair Lagoon, scheduled for July 6, 7, and 8.

Just close the aluminum door and presto, it's a nice private drawing room, convenient and homelike even if it was just a Pullman section during the daytime."

Posed to show how much easier it is to 'get up and get down' in the ultra-modern berths shown this year for the first time anywhere in the new streamlined, 110-miles-an-hour, diesel-motored, all aluminum Union Pacific Pullman trains. They make their debut at the World's Fair of 1934 in Chicago."
