It is shown that, while the Century of Progress Exposition in Chi-
cago was "a failure from an attendance standpoint" it was "from an ope-
rating standpoint the greatest success in exposition history. It is
the only fair that ever met expenses." Advertising exhibits are said
to have contributed largely to this success. A cross-section of opin-
ions of advertisers is given and the potential objectives of the com-
mercial exhibitor are listed. "The typos of exhibits which commercial
exhibitors employ to accomplish those objectives fall into seven main
patterns." These are summarized and illustrated.

The varied approaches of the food exhibitors and the results are
noted.
"Size alone was no measure of the value of a World Fair exhibit.
What was done in the exhibit space determined results. Those exhibits
which appeared to have accomplished best results, used the same formula.
They combine action and the human clement. They showed 'how it is made.
And thereby, they made a strong bid for better public relations...
Standad Brands' coffs-:roasting demonstration of 'how it is done', *..;
coupled with the aroma of fresh roasted coffee, and the sampling (at
the visitors expense) earned more friends for Chase & Sanborn coffee
than the elaborate puppet show trading on the prestige of the Charlie
McCarthy program...
"The most successful food exhibitors at the 1939 Worldls Fair...
brought the food plant to the people and they built for themselves much
good will with the public. They also raised the level of the food in-
dustries in the public estimation."

This article contains an account of an experiment made in a small
public library in a New England industrial community to attract the atton-
tion of non-readers. Three exhibits wore arranged, one of old newspapers
published in the community and containing neos about or pictures of resi-
dents of the towh, another of material dealing with the city's history
in fires and fircfighting, and a third which showed. the origin and deve-
lopment of a brass band which had existed iin'the community for almost
seventy years.
"These three displays were not the whole of the exhibit program but
they were the peaks. They were spread over a year and a halt and were
interspersed with exhibits by a local camera club, by exhibits of school
posters, and more conventional displays of art material from traveling
exhibits. But it was these three exhibits that really impressed the
library upon the community. They touched every newspaper reader, every-
one who had felt some of the fascination 'of fire, everyone who (even if
only as a child) had thrilled to a parade and a brass band. They helped
break down some of the barriers that keep the public out of the public
library... They aroused, moreover, an interest that every public library
needs and raust strive for the interest of the adult male of the commu-
nity.., no miracles wore worked... There was a gain in enrollment but not
enough to greatly increase the one-third-of-the community ratio previously
mentioned as a point of critical complaint. Yet the penetration and in-
fluence of the library had been extended far beyond the index of that
registration. It showed itsold in man.ry, ways: in a new awareness and
friendliness toward the library in almost all communal circles; the pre-
vious five-year decline of 24 per cent was reversed (inactive card holders
became active again), and by.,1939 the circulation showed a.tota. gain of
40 per cent over the low point 6f 1937...
."Emphasis upon books aloe "could not have achieved thoseiresiats -
certainly not so quickly. It was the thought and work that went beyond
books which proved so effective."

"The Leipzig fair is a market. In former times wars brought by mer-
chants were dealt in, but today sales are based on saiplcs. In any case
the modern fair brings a concentrating stream of men and goods. Conse-
quently one of the most important bases of the fair is its location.
This is just as much in Loipzigts favor now as in times past. The loca-
tion of Leipzig, coramercially and geographically considered, is the base

for an international market-place. But the fair is also conditioned by
economic geography,- since Leipzig is the center of the central German
manufacturing industry,.. So far as German demand goes the fair is gene-
rally visited by from 150,000 to 189,000 business men. The region imme-
diately around Leipzig supplies the largest part. But important as the
fair is for domestic trade it is more so for export. The majority of
exhibiting firms send to the fair to get in touch with foreign buyers.

An analysis of utilization of space in fairs with special reference
to the Leipzig fairs of 1927 to 1929 is follo',wd by a discussion, illus-
trated by graphs, of the distribution of the exhibitors according to the
size of th: stands and of the numbers of German and foreign buyers during
the years 1914 to 1929. It is shown that pIeace time business prospects
have improved inasmuch as there are more buyers per exhibitor than before
the World War.
Preparation for setting up a stand at a fair, the selection of per-
sonnel, and effective advertising are briefly,, discussed.
