1. "A view of the Lagoon theater, grandstand and the John R. Thompson twin restaurants as seen from the Hiram Walker 'Doodlebug' in the north lagoon at A Century of Progress. The theater has been roofed and a permanent stage built on spiles has replaced the roofless stands and floating stage of 1933. The changes were made because of the extreme popularity of the theater last year. At the left may be seen the completed unit of the Thompson restaurants, which began serving food today."

2. "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."
