A special department, under the management of Mrs. Jennie Pervin, has been organized in the club women's bureau on the ninth floor of the store, to assist persons planning orphan parties; such persons may write, call in person, or telephone State 1500. Orphans, in groups of three or more, will be admitted to the Fair grounds for five cents each."

37. "'Like this?' Don McNeill, famous NBC announcer, takes the 'mike' and the control head phones at the World's Fair radio auditions contest and talks to himself. He doesn't seem to think much of his own efforts. McNeill, who takes over the position of master of ceremonies in the new Pontiac broadcast scheduled from WEAF, New York next month, was the guest star at the audition contest. He also acted as one of the judges and turned out to be one of the toughest critics that have yet acted in that capacity."
