4. "Having pursued a two year course in accounting in the commercial classes of Northwestern College, of Watertown, Wis., Meinhardt Raabe, aged 18, who is one of the inhabitants of the Midget Village at the World's Fair gladly cooperated today (June 22nd) with Dr. C.W. Dupertius, of Harvard University in a bit of scientific research. The doctor, who is director of the Anthropometric Laboratory in the Social Science Hall, measured the heads and bodies of the midgets for the purpose of comparing the statistics with fully grown adults. Meinhardt, a resident of Johnson's Creek, Wis., is 48 ½ inches tall, weighs 58 pounds and is crazy about tennis."

5. "The bespectacled youth on the right is Dennis O' Shea, pie-eating champion of the 1934 World's Fair. 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."
