1. "'Murderers Row' of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, which today defeated the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, 18 to 17, in a fiercely fought softball game of seven inning duration in Grant Park adjoining the World's Fair, boasts a group of real sluggers. This quartet, reading left to fight; Bill Fantozzi (violin); Joe Mourek (trumpet); Sam Dolnik (violin) and Dan Seidenberg (first cellist), fired a volley of homers, triples and doubles, to score the triumph. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra appears twice daily in concerts at Swift Bandshell at the World's Fair, while the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is playing at Ford Gardens, also at A Century of Progress."

3. "Bud Fisher who climbs the high flag poles on the Avenue of Flags at A Century of Progress, gives the crowds there a real thrill when he poises as for a dive to the asphalt 90 feet below him, on the top rung of the Mack fire truck extension ladder. He performs thrilling feats on the ladder daily when not busy with the flags."

5. "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. A real monkey riot was precipitated shortly after this picture was taken by a gentleman who came to the show with a dozen real bananas."

6. "Marchese Alberto Rossi-Longhi, (center) charge d'affaires at the Italian Embassy in Washington who presented the Balbo shaft at the World's Fair to the city of Chicago yesterday (Sunday, July 15) on behalf of the Italian government, enjoys some real Italian wine at a reception in the World's Fair Italian village. Left to right are Guiseppe Castruccio, Italian consul-general in Chicago, Mrs. R. Townsend McKeever, the Marchese, Mrs. Joseph Bauer, and Judge John S. Sbarbaro."

7. "This is Fred Allen but it isn't Fred Allen, if you get what we mean! It's a mechanical Fred Allen and it's the first robot to be made with actual human features. "Fred" is also the first comedian mechanical man for he wisecracks and grimaces very like the real Allen. He talks, moves his hand, shows his teeth, raises his eyebrows and chuckles, but not all at once. He will perform continuously at the new World's Fair in the Ipana exhibit of the Bristol-Myers Company. Jean Hendry and Lillian Harvey from the Midget Village are shown welcoming him to the Fair."
