"'Have a World's Fair cane, boys," says Leon Mandel, general manager of Mandel Brothers, state street
1. "'Have a World's Fair cane, boys," says Leon Mandel, general manager of Mandel Brothers, state street store, to these orphans from the Bohemian Orphan asylum, the Illinois Protestant Children's home and the Chicago Home for Jewish Children. He was host Wednesday (September 26th) to the first group to visit the exposition under the store's plan to assist charitable Chicagoans in taking underprivileged children on World's Fair outings. A special department, in charge of Mrs. Jennie Pervin, has been set up in the club women's bureau on the ninth floor, to help hosts organize their groups. For full information, citizens need only write, call in person, or telephone State 1500. Orphans will be admitted to the Fair in groups of three or more for five cents each."

Dennis inhaled a six-inch blueberry pie in one minute and thirteen seconds to win a contest staged at the Armour Building on Children's Day. At the left is Edward Jackson, who took third place in the contest, and Bob Callow, winner of the second prize, is in the middle. Callow might have won but he overlooked a bit of the filling which dropped off onto his plate and a vigilant judge made him clean it up."

"These boys, from Lawrence hall, 4833 North Armitage avenue, saw the World's Fair (Oct. 12) as the guests of Leon Mandel, general manager of Mandel Brothers State street department store, in the store's 'Be a Swell Person' campaign to make it possible for under-privileged children to see the exposition. A special department has been set up on the ninth floor to assist big-hearted citizens in planning outings for groups of three or more."
