Con- se.rvation, Social Service. Education r.nd Agriculture., The purpose cf these departmental exhibits is, twofold. First, ii' shows what each of these departments does and how it does it: sec- end. it shows the value of it" work to the people of the state. To eccom- jiish this twofold purpose every known device to make the exhibits clear, simple, graphic, and interest- inn is used. A great deal of use is made of animated charts, slides and moving pictures. Many of the moving pictures and Baloptican displays have sound effects. Department of Education In the center of the exhibit space is a large map of the state animated with, small colored lights to indicate the chief educational institutions, elementary schools, high schools, colleges, teacher training i institutions, etc. When the lights i for each of these groups of institu- ! tions flash on. captions light up i civing information and statistical 1 data for that group. In front of the map there is a model of the State Education Building at Albany, above the map is the caption "Literacy and Democracy Go Hand in Hand" which is the theme of the Education exhibit. The walls on either side of the map are covered with photographic murals of school and college activities, exterior and interior, throughout the state. Overlaid upon the murals will be a series of graphic charts illustrating various phases of the history of education in New York State. Figures as to the parallel growth of population, school attendance and school functions will be given, and important steps in the development of the state's educational system will be emphasized -- the creation of the University of the State of New York in ' 1784, the passage of the first bill to provide funds for the support of schools in 1795, the passage of the bill to establish free schools in 1849, and the first law for compulsory education in 1874. One section, devoted to public school art and vocational training, has drawings and exhibits of the art and handicraft products of these schools. Slides show the work of special schools for the physically handicapped, the mentally retarded, the deaf, and the blind. Another section shows work of the libraries and museums of the state. One interesting feature of the exhibit is a large-scale model of an elementary school with a continual | parade of miniature figures emerging from its doors. By an ingenious method of designing the figures and by appropriate legends there are shown how many, on the average, out of each hundred who enter elementary school drop out in each grade, how many go on to high school, how many go to college. Another interesting exhibit, especially for children, is the work of the Brooklyn Children's Museum. This exhibit contains manv di" r s- mas of outstanding historical events. This exhibit is sponsored by the State Education Department. Conservation Department The Conservation Department exhibit brings out their functions The following features are emphasized, lands and forests, fish and game, pest control, fire prevention and reforestation, also the twelve functions of the Bureau of Publicity An interesting feature of the Conservation Department's exhibit is a diorama of a forest fire. By the use of a system of lights the fire appears to start rom a careless camper's campfire and spreads rapidly until the whole area is in flames. Methods of preventing and fighting forest ."fires'" are demonstrated by actual apparatus. Amphitheatre The amphitheatre Y which. seats approximately'8,000 people is operated under State supervision by jthe New York World's Fair Corporation. It has a marine stage entirely surrounded by water on Which are presented aquatic shows, operas, pageants and extravaganzas of all sorts. The New York State World's Fair Commission also suggests and encourages the individual counties or regions or cities to give pageants portraying scenes or events, particularly identifying the counties or regions. This is offered as a suggestion whereby the state might participate in utilizing the amphitheatre for the promotion of State pride and civic interest. Educational Value The state exhibit at the World's Fair provides the answer to the problem of how to acquaint the World's Fair visitors and. the people of this nation' wfuti 'the Empire State, the'"Sta'te that has everything." In a short time, the public, young and old,, from all corners of the globe''estimated at 60.000.000 people, will get a good understanding of the history of the state, of its geography, resources, industries and agriculture, of the many opportunities it offers for recreation, and of the important functions performed by the state government.

"Some guy gets arrested," Smith continued, "and wants to create a sensation so he says he saw Cole and Roe." ! Smith recalled however, how Cole I almost got free by hiding in a gar- i bage can. And how he slipped out j of handcuffs and leg irons as a j daily joke. j Once Cole made his way safely out of McAlester. Okla.. penitentiary in a laundry bag.
