2. "Something new in section appeal - in a Pullman car. Posed to show how much easier it is to 'get up and get down' in the ultra-modern berths shown this year for the first time anywhere in the new streamlined, 110-miles-an-hour, diesel-motored, all aluminum Union Pacific Pullman trains.

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."
