The uniforms were ornuga with white caps, red trousers with blue tunics,'green-with golden metal helmets, and tunny,other colors. Inside ;tfie French pavilion could be heard the drums and the bugles, but It was quiet. A janitor young enough; for military service polished the--brass push-button of the elevator. People strolled pnst him, looking idly ot n modern French railioad car, a glnnt searchlight, n rakish speedster, and tlie mural decoration. "Any news?" asked n gray-haired mair with "Sioux city, Iowa" on his lapel. The janitor shook his head. "We aren't allowed to give out any information, sir." Everyone Is Jillery Someone walked too close to one of thc exhibits, ignoring the "please do not touch" sign. A metal plate crashed to thc floor. Everyone jumped. The janitor spilled some liquid polish: The drums could be heard In Iho Polish Pavilion. A good-natured fat boy whose beard MBS just beginning lo grow, and who had not yet begun to shave It, sat at the base of the basket-work golden tower. From a few feet away he looked like a soldier instead of the Polish Boy Scout he actually was. It was crowded inside the Polish Pavilion. There was a. crowd around the information desk. There was a crowd around the 10th Century Polish knight in black armor, mounted on a charger and •roaring leathers like an Indian's headdress tip the back of lils steel cuirass. There was a crowd around tlie panels devoted lo Copernicus and Marie Curie and oilier famous .scientists given to the world by Poland, and theie wns a crowd around the silver models ot transport planes flying over the air mop labeled, "Routes Which Will Encircle thc World Arc Bound to Pass Through Poland." Tre last, four words were painted n brilliant scarlet—"To Pnss. Through Poland " To Keep Pavilion Open Nearly all of the talk was in Polish, but there were a. few people speaking English in the building. ".Will you stay open?" one of these asked the girl at the Information counter, "Yes, madam," replied the girl. "Until October." "You'll keep the pavilion open no matter what happens In Eu- roi>c?" "No matter what happens," the Blrl echoed. She spoke English well A short, curly-bonded man stood in front of the big airplane motor mounted on a pedestal. He carried his coal over one arm and studied the cooling fins en the giant cylinders. "How do you like that motor boy?" he asked ot no one In particular, in English'.
