1. "Miss Gladys Farkes, 27 years old and 47 inches tall, is bossing the job while Victor Bump, 27 years old and 50 inches tall, works on the Chevrolet Assembly line in the General Motors Building at the World's Fair. Both of these small people are members of Midget City at the Century of Progress."

2. "The smallest man in the world, Capt. Werner Ritter (age 21, height 18 inches, weight 19-3/4 pounds) visits the smallest distillery bottling line in the world at the Hiram Walker Exhibit, a new attraction at A Century of Progress. As the picture was snapped Capt. Ritter was being kidded out of a miniature rage which developed when one of the 22 co-eds who attend the bottling line, tried to cuddle him like a baby. 'Das ist nicht gut,' asserted the midget (he speaks only German). The reason for his anger was revealed when he asked permission to keep the miniature souvenir bottle, held in his left hand, as a present to his pint-sized sweetheart in the Midget Village."
