"'Have a World's Fair cane, boys," says Leon Mandel, general manager of Mandel Brothers, state street store, to these orphans from the Bohemian Orphan asylum, the Illinois Protestant Children's home and the Chicago Home for Jewish Children. He was host Wednesday (September 26th) to the first group to visit the exposition under the store's plan to assist charitable Chicagoans in taking underprivileged children on World's Fair outings. A special department, in charge of Mrs. Jennie Pervin, has been set up in the club women's bureau on the ninth floor, to help hosts organize their groups.

'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."
