1. "Humans may like pie eating contests but monkeys prefer bananas in the raw if you don't mind, as you may readily see by this picture, which was snapped yesterday during the height of the World's Fair Monkey Banana Pie Eating Contest staged at the Frank Buck show on Northerly Island. A real monkey riot was precipitated shortly after this picture was taken by a gentleman who came to the show with a dozen real bananas."

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."

"This old colonial stock failed to deprive Miss Georgie Berry, Richmond, Va., of her charming smile, even with the ridicule afforded by Miss Mildred Smith, left, of Wilbur, Wash., and Miss Betty Bort, Long Beach, Calif. The smile trio, finals in a national charm smile contest, visited A Century of Progress yesterday (Tuesday, July 24) and were luncheon guests at the Colonial Village where this picture was snapped by a Fair photographer."
