1. "'Like this?' Don McNeill, famous NBC announcer, takes the 'mike' and the control head phones at the World's Fair radio auditions contest and talks to himself. He doesn't seem to think much of his own efforts. McNeill, who takes over the position of master of ceremonies in the new Pontiac broadcast scheduled from WEAF, New York next month, was the guest star at the audition contest.

Posed to show how much easier it is to 'get up and get down' in the ultra-modern berths shown this year for the first time anywhere in the new streamlined, 110-miles-an-hour, diesel-motored, all aluminum Union Pacific Pullman trains.

5. "Three new musical instruments, an electrical violin, a clavier, and an electrical guitar, attract much comment from spectators at the outdoor science theater in the court of the Hall of Science at the World's Fair. The instruments are the invention of Lloyd Loar, lecturer on the physics of music at Northwestern University, who is seated at the clavier. The other musicians are Charles Stein (left) and Ruth Brenner (right). The instruments produce an electrical current which is amplified and converted into sound by the loudspeaker shown in the picture."
