1. "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."

2. "When Ella Nora Newholm, a post office clerk, of 118 South 14th Ave., East Duluth, Minn., stepped into the turnstile at the 12th St. entrance to the World's Fair on Tuesday night, September 4th, she had no idea she was making history. As she dropped her ticket into the hands of the guide on the gate she became the 10,000,000th visitor to A Century of Progress Exposition. She was greeted by M.M. Tveter, comptroller of the Fair and presented with a veritable armload of gifts, among which were: a Hild floor polishing machine, a ham, a clock, and other fine presents."
