Sunday, April 2, 1933

Went to church and Sunday school. Went over to Raiferts and played pinochle. I read the paper.

In connection with the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago ("the Century of Progress Exposition"),
the San Antonio Express and Evening News together with the Chicago Tribune cosponsored a
 Court of Honor Competition -- a photographic contest seeking "charming" girls who would formally
dedicate the Century of Progress International Exposition at Chicago on June 1, 1933. Fourteen other
newspapers nationwide, including the Kansas City papers, cooperated in the event, and many others
ran advertisements such as the one above and articles. Among the fifty-one who were chosen were
Julia Wiedenmann from Kansas City, Missouri and Isabelle Perry from Kansas City, Kansas.
