1. [Louise Lentz Woodruff standing next to the sculpture she designed for the Fountain of Science, located in front of the main entrance to the Hall of Science.

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."
