1. "A conception by Hugh Ferriss, a noted New York artist, of how the Ford Exhibition building now being erected at the Chicago World's Fair will look at night in its blaze of light. The building is nine hundred feet long and ten stories in height at its center. It faces upon a five acre park fronting Lake Michigan. Albert Kahn of Detroit is the architect, and Walter Dorwin Teague of New York, the industrial designer, is in charge of the interior display."

2. "Humans may like pie eating contests but monkeys prefer bananas in the raw if you don't mind, as you may readily see by this picture, which was snapped yesterday during the height of the World's Fair Monkey Banana Pie Eating Contest staged at the Frank Buck show on Northerly Island.

3. "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."
