The 1950 fair will celebrate the
golden anniversary of this cen-
tury," Thornton added. "Despite
wars ami portents of wars, we
have come a long way in fifty
years. This fair will look back
over what has been accomplished
and show that the result is defin-
itely worth celebrating."
Since the fair will not only
salute the lirst half-century, but
also preview the second, it will
attempt to prognosticate what lies
ahead in many fields, as in
science, agriculture, art, the home,
automotive and other industries.
E.'en before the last fair, work
on this "golden" cent was well
under way. The All-American Jer-
sey Show was signed up early in
l! 49. Not long thereafter, offi-
cials began angling "South Paci
fic," the big all-time All-Ameri-
can musical, toward the Audi-
torium for this year.
Ice Cycles arranged to show
both its f49 and '50 editions at
the last fair, in order to parade
its bigger '51 model at the Mid-
Century. Work on Rural Youth
Day for the last four years has
been building up to the climactic
100,000-youth gathering expected
Today while painters slap gal-
lons of brilliant hues on massive
buildings outside, the fair's staff
inside is grifiding out arrange-
ments for scores of added attrac-
tions destined to make this the
post-war fair to be remembered
as "the big one."
Among added features will be
a gigantic nightly "Parade of the
Decades," a sparkling mile-long
spectacle depicting the most ex-
