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."

2. "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."
