2. "'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.

3. "As a reward for their efforts in a citizenship contest conducted by the board of education and the city parks and playgrounds, these boys were assigned to executive positions at the World's Fair today (Thursday, August 23) as part of the North Side Day program at the Fair. The young executives, front row, left to right, are: Louis Miniscalco, 15, as secretary; Chester Andrezak, 17, chief of the events division; Floyd Jacobson, 15, director of exhibits; Herman Loper, 14, director of foreign and federal participation; Bernard Galivan, 15, director of promotion and publicity; and Carl Marziana, 17, assistant to the general manager. Back row, left to right, Lawrence Hatton, 17, director of concessions; Charles Felice, 15, chief of the protocol; Anthony Graziano, 17, legal counsel; LeGrand Malany, 16, assistant to the general manager, and John Maheras, 14, general manager. Don Schmidt, 16, was so busy carrying on as president of the Exposition, and Joseph Wirt, 16, chief of public protection, was so busy making arrangements to meet Ed Wynn, that neither had time to pose for the picture."

4. "Humans may like pie eating contests but monkeys prefer bananas in the raw if you don't mind, as you may readily see by this picture, which was snapped yesterday during the height of the World's Fair Monkey Banana Pie Eating Contest staged at the Frank Buck show on Northerly Island. A real monkey riot was precipitated shortly after this picture was taken by a gentleman who came to the show with a dozen real bananas."
