“D-nude Ranch, Flop”, Says C-R
Office Girl After Visit To F airs
What was yom‘l impression in the
comparison of the two World Fairs?
The above question or similar ones
have confronted me. the Conrier-
Reporter office girl. by many Ken
newick people since my arrival Fri
day morning from one of the most
educational trips I have ever taken.
In answering this question I will
have to admit that]; did not do Jus
tice to our western exposition be
cause 01' my limited visit to one
evening, -However. I believe I walk
ed over the ,major portion of the
grounds .and must say that the
Golden Gate International Expo"
sition to me 'is just a‘ miniature as
compared to the great New York
Treasure Island impressed me as
being an ideal'setting for the un
believable ‘tFaii-yland." with the
most gorgeousland indescribable col
ored lighting reflected in the water.
The buildings were mostly uniform
in structure. centered by the lofty
“Tower of the Sun." I did take a
peak at a few of the exhibits and
thought they were very similar to
this New York exhibits. but of course
on a much smaller scale.
Although the New York Fair dis
p‘ yed some wonderful lighting el
- the grounds as well as Treas
ure Island. However. the theme cen
ter, she 'l‘rylon and Perisphere, white
towering structures. _are so erected
than they‘joan be seen] for miles eith
er by day or night; The buildings
m-_,general are patterned after the,
theme. “The World of Tomorrow."

design. The grounds are divided
into zones according to the type of
exhibits and streets leading from one
zone to another. -
Each of the exhibits was based
on the future or “The World of To
morrow.” To illustrate, in the Peri
sphere is a miniature model of the
theme just mentioned, and also a
‘very interesting model of the “high
,ways of Tomorrow" is displayed in
lithe General Motors building. This
display seemed to be one of the most
ipopular as there was always a long
waiting line—the popularity aside
jfrom the display itself might pos
fsibiy have been due to the very com
fortable moving seats. In the for
eign, government and state build
ings was illustrated by displays of
‘various forms, the past, present and
}future developments of the various
'phases of civilization. One of the
most favorable and striking im
pressions I received or each of the
foreign buildings was the fact that
in each there was some sort of pro
motion of Good Will and Interna
tional Peace brought out in the ex
hibits. If World Fairs will encour
age and keep this feeling between
nations, we should have many and
more of them.
i The Federal building was most in
teresting, having displays of the
different departments of the gov
ernment and Whit they are doing
for the nation.
Another impressive exhibit which
showed the extreme of comparing
the past and present was in the
Electric Utility building. Upon
entering the building the time was
turning back as indicated by a huge
clock and visitors entered a city

street in 1892 which was dimly
lighted by gas jet lamps. As one
walked down the cobblestone street
and viewed the different store dis
plays. cards were noticed in each
window announcing the celebration
of the tenth anniversary of the
founding of electricity. After tak
ing in the interesting sights of the
old dark street the visitor walks
through a passage way. opens a
large door and is surprised to find
himself entering an ultra-modem
city street with all the modern
lighting equipment displayed in the
street and store windows. all of
which showed the extreme progress
of electricity.
0 Of course, being a Washingonian,
I had to visit the state building
which, although small, is modem
istic in architecture ‘and was erect
ed at a cost of $34,000: The cost of
the building and exhibit together
amounts to $150,000. The cost of
the state exhibits at ‘the _two fairs
amounts 1700250000.. With ‘the ex
ception of one or two state build
ings I believe Washington had one
of the finestexhibits. All Washing
ton residents should also be remind
ed of the fact that our state helped
start the fair. Since the entire lo
cation of the New York Fair grounds
‘ is built on swamp land. there had to
be some foundation for the build
ings. _ Some 80, 110 and lzo-foot‘
Douglas fir trees were transported
on several different railroads and
are used as the pilings underneath
the buildings. It is said that Grover
Whalen. preSident of the fair as
sociation. in several of his speeches.
has commended the Evergreen state
for its huge timber.
01' course I could not pass up the
idea of giving my opinlon of the
center of each falr's amusement
area. I considered Sally Rand’anud‘e
ranch as quite a flop; But speak-y
m mic: (imam coum-m
ing of Billy Rose's Aqumde—there
is a real show to.see! The setting is
a most elaborate open air pool with
huge stage in the background. The
diving exhibitions and the water
formations by mum-colored lights
was one of the most beautiful sights
I have ever seen. Many of the ce
lebrities took part in the show. in
cluding Morton Downey, master of
ceremonies; Gertrude Ederle. John
ny Weismulier. Evelyn Holm and a
number of; diving champions. "
Another indescribable and gor
geous sight was the matter hour

with a change of theme each eve
ning. -
According to statistics received at
the fair there are 33,000 employees
on the grounds and the entire fair
cost' amounted -to $58...000000 I
would advise anyone who is con
templating taking in either felt. to
first of all. wear old shoes. No one

Sleeping sickness among horses of

Sellick recently said the disease is
transmitted by mosquitos and other
blood sucsing insects. .
Khyber Forrester, who. recently
:wrote an—article on the subject of
5 equine emomyelitis, as medical
authorities. term the disease. said
a new method of combating the dis
