Exposition which will tour the states when we get home will hold a special open forum in the parade ground tomorrow. Thursday April 19th at 1015.  The purpose of this forum is to give complete information about the Karnival – what has been done to date, what is planned for the future, and to explain how the show has grown from a mere Arts & Krafts Exhibit to an exposition that will rival the best efforts of Grover Whalen and his Trylon – Perisphere’s outfit.  Everyone is invited to attend. Colonel Greening has advised us that you won’t be disappointed.  A sample exhibit will be set up for inspection during and after the meeting.
