1. "'Boy Howdy! This is our idea of a sandwich,' exclaims Audrey Hoesch and Glen Hillgartner as they bite into the first portion of the world's largest ham sandwich today at the World's Fair, while Phillip R.

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."

Milow and his partner, George Nelson, track captain of the Armour Tech team, when he is not working, ran the distance in 4:19.4 for their employers, the Coca-Cola exhibit."
