They are inspecting a mummy which is believed to date from the 7th century B.C. Portions of the mummy's wrappings have been cut away so that visitors to this popular exhibit may see the method used by the ancients in wrapping the mummies. The specimen is loaned by the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago."

"Having pursued a two year course in accounting in the commercial classes of Northwestern College, of Watertown, Wis., Meinhardt Raabe, aged 18, who is one of the inhabitants of the Midget Village at the World's Fair gladly cooperated today (June 22nd) with Dr. C.W. Dupertius, of Harvard University in a bit of scientific research.

Meinhardt, a resident of Johnson's Creek, Wis., is 48 ½ inches tall, weighs 58 pounds and is crazy about tennis."
