1. "Myrtice Crory, of the Firestone Tire exhibit at the World' Fair, a runner-up in the beauty contest finals staged last week to find the fairest employee of A Century of Progress, is enriched by $10 for her guess on the number of precious stones contained in the 18 articles in the Chinese Imperial Gold Collection in Streets of Shanghai at the World's Fair. She estimated the number at 7550. The correct count is 6307 according to Herbert J. Devine, the exhibitor, who is pictured here presenting Miss Corey with an envelope containing a $10 bill for her winning guess."

2. "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."
