2. "Myrtice Crory, of the Firestone Tire exhibit at the World' Fair, a runner-up in the beauty contest finals staged last week to find the fairest employee of A Century of Progress, is enriched by $10 for her guess on the number of precious stones contained in the 18 articles in the Chinese Imperial Gold Collection in Streets of Shanghai at the World's Fair. She estimated the number at 7550. The correct count is 6307 according to Herbert J. Devine, the exhibitor, who is pictured here presenting Miss Corey with an envelope containing a $10 bill for her winning guess."
