It was as interesting to grown- as to the excited children, who „,, plauded the performance enthusiastically. And, again, the thought comes to us that we are fortunate to view A Century of Progress through the wide-eyed wonderment o£ children who have not as yet become sated with the miracles of the Age in which we live. . Fairyland for Children. To sit and watch 100 children transfixed in rapt attention while a fairy tale is unfolded brings a reaction which, we thank heaven, may still experience once in a blue moon. We even took a ride on the 'spic and span electric railroad, with its impressive whistle and the sharp clanging bell, and thus lopped off a couple of years from our existence. Out in the lagoon kiddies may pilot their own motorboat around an enclosed track—which called for two rides instead of one. Yes, the Enchanted Island is A 'Century of Progress's contribution to childhood, and a pretty gesture it is. lit some of your hard-shelled cynics would spend an hour there, watching the effects of Toyland on •the impressionistic minds of little iboys and girls, another angle of this mighty fair would be unfolded in their minds. Belgian Village Outstanding. The Belgian Village is probably one of the outstanding features of A Century of Progress. Here, right in the very center of gaudy modernism surrounded by hot-dog stands and the blatant Streets of Paris, is an exact replica of an ancient Belgian village, with its cobblestone courtyard, its grand little cathedral, town hall, dungeon tower, lace shops, and booths of foreign trinkets. They have even reproduced the famed statue of the little boy who forms an important part of a celebrated fountain in Brussels. It's a 'bit naughty in prosaic, staid, young U. S. A., but in the Old World, where there is less false modesty, it passes without comment. There are folk dances in the square during the hour in which we roam the cobblestone streets, and this enhances the illusion that we are actually in a foreign land thousands of miles from home. It is only when a bit of plaster paris construction is visible that we become aware of the fact that this is make-believe. But why dwell on the artificial, when the general effect is so startlingly real? Do we always look at the stage scenery when we attend a light opera and see the artificiality of it all? The Belgian Village, while no more faithfully produced than The Streets of Paris, is much more impressive and infinitely more artistic than other "location" spots. Lunch and Midway. We purposely wait till 3 o'clock to lunch at the Eitel cafeteria, in order to avoid the noon-day crowd. But to our surprise the place is till jammed. We comment on the act, and Julian (age seven) offers he sage philosophy that probably ther folks had the same idea._ If ou have never taken three wide- .wake boys to a world's fair, you have missed one of the most de- ightful experiences of life. It is still too early to secure seats for the Wings of a Century pageant, and we put in the time on he Midway. There is Ripley's Od- ditorium, the old museum of freaks dressed in modern garb. There you may see a nigger baby with four egs and three arms, a rubber skinned man, a woman with long tresses (quite a novelty in this bobbed- mir age), and many other curios- ties both interesting and slightly repulsive. Wings of a Century. The place was doing a thriving business the day we attended, and we have never felt closer akin to a sardine in a can than when we mttled the mobs of pushing, crush- f\S humans as it moved with re- entless force from one exhibit to another. And the Midget Village ;o which we sent the eager kiddies —•how they told, with breathless nterest, the details of miniature >arber shops and houses in which these little folk live. It is now 6 o'clock, none too early to buy seats for Wings of a Century. The performance begins at seven, but an hour's rest eliminates the terrific Jam which takes place directly before each show. Progress of Transportation. Here is the story of the progress of transportation from the crude og-drags of the Indians to the .argest and most gigantic modern ocomotive ever built in the United States. It is more than Just a pageant of progress—it is a story, coated with Romance and Adventure, exciting and brilliantly staked, with a musical accompaniment which stirs the imagination /and quickens the pulse. Each episode is faithfully reproduced, with vehicles, ships, and steam or gas driven motors playing their parts. Get the setting: the amphitheater faces the lake, which is visible for 50 to 76 feet through an opening in the wing's of the modern-sel stage. There is no covering over either seats or stage; we sit outdoors under a gathering twilight and watch the dim outlines of the lake fade into the horizon of the sky and we feel the magic spell of the fair settle down upon us with swisters, of Consaelo and covered arches, the hard wooden benches seem leas uncomfortable, and you may even forget your weariness while celebrated gypsies entertain you with their inimitable music. The marionette ?how given gratis as a part of the M. & P. carnival included a Bernard Shaw sketch which brought down the house. This part of the entertainment was under the personal charge of Tony Sarg and showed the marks of his genius. From the large refreshment pavilion in the A. & P. exhibit, facing the cool breezes of the lake, we take an enjoyable boat ride, skirting the exposition grounds and going as far northward as the Municipal Pier. The Romance is a trim little oil-driven ship 75 foot in length and cutting the . choppy waves like a sea thoroughbred. Thus-we have satisfied a desire of the youngsters to spend an hour on Lake Michigan, and the experience has not been in the least irksome to us elders. Then, after double-deck cones, we are again in prime condition to proceed with A Century of Progress. Halt to Extract Teeth. _ We saunter over the bridge leading to the Enchanted Island and attack the Electrical building. Mrs. C. looks over the Westinghouse exhibit while Julian T. pulls another tooth, thus completing a four-tooth gap in the front. After a hasty visit to the wash room, where necessary repairs are made, we proceed. The Electrical building, like all of the major displays at the fair, rambles from corridor to corridor in rather chaotic disorder. But the huge black pillars, with frescoes showing the progress of this important industry, are impressive. They rise to a height of 75 feet, towering like giants above the puny exhibits below. We see the mechanical man, tout most of the other displays are far over our un-mechanical heads. Even so, the massiveness- of the building, the extensiveness of the exhibits, the minute attention to detail in an industry which may be called the basis of our 20th century progress, must all make themselves felt as we roam idly through the apparently endless rooms and halls. And there are folks who say there is nothing in A Century of Progress which ap- eals to them! Avenue of Flags. Crossing the north bridge, we alk under the canopy of the Ave- ue of Flags arranged in modern- stio regularity on steel poles poised at 70 degree angles. Even a -bit f red bunting must ibow to the pirit of this Age of straight lines 1 nd square corners. As we walk beneath this arch- vay of fluttering flags we turn ur heads and view again the pan- rama of this Century of Progress, with its towering obolisks pointing eavenward in a riot of color which urpass even sunlight toy its bril- iance. Gone are the quiet days of 893 with their Grecian beauty— his is 1933—machinery, electricity, ndustry with the new god, Busi- icss, ruling our destinies. Full team ahead—all aboard—for—who :nows where? Time and Fortune. The Time and Fortune building is unique and consistent with the dis- inctive Character of the magazines. Huge tfac similes of the covers of both Time and Fortune ower above the low building, which houses a comfortable rest and reading room. There is a riendly atmosphere of quiet charm as we saunter about on a heavy, shock-absorbing carpet. On a great rack, in the center of the room are magazines from every country in the world. We are interested es^ pecially in Chinese publications, in one of which is a double-spread of our friend Betty Boop. Outside, on he terrace, surrounded by sunken gardens, are tables and comfortable chairs where visitors may relax and gird their loins for a fresh onslaught. At various periods, the members of our little party separate and each goes a separate way. While we are personally inspecting Charlie pyle's famous (or infamous) Cuban Rhumba dancers on the Midway, viewing the performance squatting cross-legged on a sloping, carpeted floor, Mrs. C. goes to the baby incubators exhibit, where she says she saw many interesting little babes, one in particular weighing only a pound and a quarter. (Sometimes Ted accompanied her, at other times Jack was her body-guard and so we did "double- duty" in the matter of seeing those things which interested us most. Here's Some Thermometer. One of the most unusual structures in A Century of Progress is a huge, 200 foot thermometer which registers temperatures. It is one of the incidentals constantly before your eyes as you roam through the grounds, but which one is likely to Dverlopk in a hurried account of the fair. Most of our activities thus far have been confined to the northern entrances, so we transfer our base of operations to the extreme south section, the 3$th street entrance. Here, of course, the Days of "49 show appeals to the youngsters, who have seen graphic description of this phase of our pioneer life in the western reels of Tom Mix and George O'Brien.' During the hour which the children spend in the crude, frame buildings in Which this show is housed, we elders proceed to the Transportations exhibit, where we pick out the several displays which might be of particular interest to youngsters. Here are exhibited the latest models of aluminum Pullman cars, planes, and all the vehicles which have Darl, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Hallard Snyder, was operated on last Thursday afternoon at the KossutSh hospital for appendicitis. He had seemed well in the forenoon, and had ridden to Qexton on his 'bicycle, but early in the afternoon he complained of severe pain in the side, and -when he was taken to a doctor an immediate operation was advised. The Aid meets this week Thurs- gripping tenseness. Train after tram rolls out on the stretch of track before us, the crude efforts of men pressed steam into our early "toy engines, later the mighty iron monsters that pull their great loads of modern freight over moun tains and across plains. Here u probably the most successful edu cational and entertainment featur< of the entire fair. Let no one scoff at the Wings of a Century pageant Theater and Boatride. And when, your tired "dogs" be <ITI harblUCr & t)lt« bUfiJTO *9 vftQ vQQJ U* V«M*M**O ™ *f^ r t T . _ J __!__ theater ! ,s our progress in We go through the contributed to transportation. three fully-equipped modern trains that stand on the tracks nearby. Two are U. S. A., and one is foreign, the Royal Scot. The exertion calls for a cooling refreshment which we find at the Schlitz garden, facing the lake, and there we watch a hydro-plane land and take-off, carrying passengers— we are told, at $3 a head. We have neither the price nor the inclination for this thrilling experience. And Many Other Things. There remain still many, many things of interest which we see on following days. The General Motors exhibit, the largest building on the grounds devoted to a private industry, contains many interesting and instructive features, the most important being the assembling of a complete car. Mrs. C. finds much of interest in the Japanese and Czechoslovakian buildings. PAGE THUMB i day with Mrs. Sarah Wise, Rex, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Taylor, entered a Jersey heifer in the 4-OH club exhibits at the county fair and won first in 4-H class, first in the open class, and the Junior championship. He now plans to take the heifer to the Dairy Cattle Congress at Waterloo. • Mrs. John Huff Qr. has moved into the A. I/. Greenfield house. Her sons Ray and Clarence live with her. Mrs. Sarah Wise, daughters Nell and Mrs. Drusilla Noble and son Herman spent Sunday at Loyd 'Steven's, Burt, Mrs B. E. Sanders got home ! week Wednesday from Chks*i% where she attended the world's fdflf with the Henry Hawleys and tfceK daughter, Mrs. Naomi De Wilde* at Mason City. Mrs. De Wilde wftfr having a two weeks vacation frottt her stenographic duties at a Hardware insurance company office at) Mason City. Mrs. Harvey Steven and Nell Wise attended a, county Sunday school convention at Lone Rock. Monday. (And so the few spend themselves, spent only minutes in which could easily have remaining days and we have buildings required days of study and inspection. It is a pity, but this hasty tour is the product of an age of speed and high tension. If the NBA gives us a.lit- tle leisure to enjoy the fruits of our civilization it will have contributed more to mankind than almost anything else. Farewell and Home. We spend the last evening of our visit in Chicago atop of, a double- deck motor bus, and from this vantage point we look a last time on the brilliantly and vari-color lighted playground of the nation. And so A Century of Progress fades off into the pleasant memories which are not the least enjoyable part of such an undertaking. We trust that the educational advantages which such a stupendous exhibit offers, -will linger long in the young, impressionistic minds of the children. If they do our mission is fulfilled. Little Girl Badly Hurt. Lotts Creek, Sept. 12—(Eunice, small daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Walter Krause, fell from 'a James Way chicken barn Saturday and broke her forearms. Capital and Labor Where is the capital of the United States? I think half of it is over in Europe and Andy Mellon and his associates have the other half. * We have the labor and several kinds of taxes. We have cotton tax, wheat tax, and several other kinds. I think one name, Consumer's tax, would cover the field. Some morning I expect to read in the papers where they have appropriated a couple of millions to fix up the run-down golf links over the country and to install radios in cars, for the tourist. I hope they get everybody at work, but I know they will not. As long as the world stands there will be an army of unemployed. Work is a great civilizer. A hard-working man is generally a good citizen. An idle mind is the, devil's workshop. Let us hope everybody that wants to work finds a job. The farmer has to feed everybody anyway, whether they work or not. If everybodyis earning money the farmer will stand some show of getting paid for what he raises. What I cannot understand is where will the money come from to pay the fellows we put to work. Which comes first, the egg or the hen? In our case the farmer comes first, for if he has money we can sell shoes and buy more shoes. Our good president will figure it out. I am confident he is doing his best to help us out of the muddle, so let us all stand by him and help in tfce struggle. We are soldiers in the war against depression—let us pbey orders and do our part. It is {he only way to go over the top.
