A nickel is all it takes for anyone under 12 to pass practically any ticket office on the grounds that day. She is shown here in front of the Puerto Rican exhibit in the Court of States to which she paid a neighborly visit. Little Sarita is a niece of Guillermo Valiente, recently appointed Cuban vice-consul to Chicago."

"When Ella Nora Newholm, a post office clerk, of 118 South 14th Ave., East Duluth, Minn., stepped into the turnstile at the 12th St. entrance to the World's Fair on Tuesday night, September 4th, she had no idea she was making history. 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."
