Scientific HIGHLIGHTS of Chicago’s WORLD FAIR

It looks like the Chicago Fair were built especially for M-M fans. It is replete with the kind of mechanical wonders shown here.

While you’re casually viewing this display of priceless jewels an armed guard is watching your every move. If glass is broken, tray drops into vault.

If, when visiting the Fair, you’re curious as to the temperature at the moment, all you have to do is glance around the horizon and this world’s largest thermometer is sure to come within your view to tell you what you want to know. A series of Neon tubes does duty as a column of mercury, the height being controlled by a master thermometer at the base. The figures and graduations are also outlined by glowing tubes.

Ever wonder what happens to the food you eat? This intriguing exhibit in Hall of Science illustrates while you wait the digestive processes that go on right in your own innards.

Motordrome at Fair is attracting thousands, who watch this daring young Miss circle the drome at breath-taking speed with full grown lion riding beside her in the car.

Amazing to spectators in electrical building is this robot. Talk into the telephone and he will do anything you command—almost. He’ll smoke, blink his eyes, shake hands, talk, stand up or sit down. In fact, he’ll even sing.

You can have a $20 bill free for the taking at this exhibit—providing you can take it without routing out the guards. Your success depends upon ability to get beyond electric eye beam.

    What could possibly be more scientific than a lion riding shotgun in a race car?

    The robot seems to be the predecessor to Electro the Moto-man.
