4. "Great Hall of the massive Hall of Science at Chicago's 1933 World's Fair -- A Century of Progress exposition, which opens May 27th and closes November 1st. Ceilings, panels, balconies, and stairways of the building embody new and superb examples of modern architectural design. Here the spirit of man's scientific achievement during the past 100 years, the predominant note of the Exposition -- finds concrete expression. The hall of Science houses a wealth of exhibits by industries closely related to the basic industries, with sections devoted to biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics, physics, and medicine."

5. "If expressions mean anything, Gloria Swanson and her party seem rather pleased with what they saw when they previewed the new World's Fair from the top of the west Sky-Ride tower. With Miss Swanson are Walter N. Greaza, leading man in the sketch in which she is now appearing at the Chicago Theater, and her secretary, Mrs. H.A. Richardson. The guard, resplendent in his new uniform, is J.F. Murphy."

6. "Life-like in form and action, and with a look of evil intent, these prehistoric animals aren't good for your eyesight unless you are in command of all your faculties!

"The smallest man in the world, Capt. Werner Ritter (age 21, height 18 inches, weight 19-3/4 pounds)
9. "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."

10. "This is Fred Allen but it isn't Fred Allen, if you get what we mean! It's a mechanical Fred Allen and it's the first robot to be made with actual human features. "Fred" is also the first comedian mechanical man for he wisecracks and grimaces very like the real Allen. He talks, moves his hand, shows his teeth, raises his eyebrows and chuckles, but not all at once. He will perform continuously at the new World's Fair in the Ipana exhibit of the Bristol-Myers Company. Jean Hendry and Lillian Harvey from the Midget Village are shown welcoming him to the Fair."
