Little Sarita is a niece of Guillermo Valiente, recently appointed Cuban vice-consul to Chicago."

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."
