"'Be a swell person -- Take an Orphan to the Fair' is the motto of the movement started by the Mandel
1. "'Be a swell person -- Take an Orphan to the Fair' is the motto of the movement started by the Mandel Brothers, State street department store, to help charitable Chicagoans take under-privileged children on World's Fair outings. Shown here is Leon Mandel, general manager, with the first of the groups to visit the exposition, composed of boys from the Bohemian Orphan asylum, the Illinois Protestant Children's home, and the Chicago Home for Jewish children. A special department, under the management of Mrs. Jennie Pervin, has been organized in the club women's bureau on the ninth floor of the store, to assist persons planning orphan parties; such persons may write, call in person, or telephone State 1500. Orphans, in groups of three or more, will be admitted to the Fair grounds for five cents each."

3. "Pursuing the quest for knowledge with the same zest with which they participated in greased pig races, pie eating contests, and other competitions staged at the Fair during the summer, thousands of Chicago school students are taking advantage of the reduced rate student tours offered by the management of the Chicago World's Fair. To enable students to see the many educational features of the Exposition, admission prices for children in groups of ten or more have been reduced to five cents with accompanying teachers admitted free. Here a group of sixth graders from the Lewis Champlin school are getting the visual instruction in the art of glassblowing from Maestro Romano Zanetti, one of the master craftsmen in the Venice-Murano exhibit."
