The beautiful carillon tower rising above the Hall is equipped with mellow-toned chimes that send their music floating out over the grounds throughout the day and night. Inside the Hall of Science, Exposition visitors view dramatic action exhibits of industries closely related to the basic sciences. The building comprises superb examples of modern architecture. It is U-shaped with two arms reaching down to a sparkling lagoon, and enclosing a court of three acres. In the center of its upper terrace is a circular well, forming the base of a court colorful with pools, fountains and flower-gardens."

"The smallest man in the world, Capt. Werner Ritter (age 21, height 18 inches, weight 19-3/4 pounds)
7. "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."
