3. "Great Hall of the massive Hall of Science at Chicago's 1933 World's Fair -- A Century of Progress exposition, which opens May 27th and closes November 1st. Ceilings, panels, balconies, and stairways of the building embody new and superb examples of modern architectural design. Here the spirit of man's scientific achievement during the past 100 years, the predominant note of the Exposition -- finds concrete expression. The hall of Science houses a wealth of exhibits by industries closely related to the basic industries, with sections devoted to biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics, physics, and medicine."

4. "This is Fred Allen but it isn't Fred Allen, if you get what we mean! It's a mechanical Fred Allen and it's the first robot to be made with actual human features. "Fred" is also the first comedian mechanical man for he wisecracks and grimaces very like the real Allen. He talks, moves his hand, shows his teeth, raises his eyebrows and chuckles, but not all at once. He will perform continuously at the new World's Fair in the Ipana exhibit of the Bristol-Myers Company. Jean Hendry and Lillian Harvey from the Midget Village are shown welcoming him to the Fair."
