The changes were made because of the extreme popularity of the theater last year. At the left may be seen the completed unit of the Thompson restaurants, which began serving food today."

3. "North approach to the Hall of Science at Chicago's 1933 World's Fair -- A Century of Progress Exposition, which opens May 27th and continues until November 1st. The beautiful carillon tower rising above the Hall is equipped with mellow-toned chimes that send their music floating out over the grounds throughout the day and night. Inside the Hall of Science, Exposition visitors view dramatic action exhibits of industries closely related to the basic sciences. The building comprises superb examples of modern architecture. It is U-shaped with two arms reaching down to a sparkling lagoon, and enclosing a court of three acres. In the center of its upper terrace is a circular well, forming the base of a court colorful with pools, fountains and flower-gardens."
