CONSTRUCTION BRIEFINGS
FOR EXHIBITORS FEATURED
AT TWO FAIR CONFERENCES
35 Exhibitors Will Be At Work By

General William Whipple, Chief Engi-
neer for the Fair, led discussions at two
recent conferences which were designed to
expedite exhibitor construction. Represen-
tatives of International and State exhibi-
tors were briefed on the engineering, con-
struction and architectural aspects of the
exposition at a two-day seminar at the
World's Fair site on October 22nd and
October 23rd. The following week a sec-
ond construction conference was held for
Industrial & Transportation Area exhibi-
tors - many of whom are already well
under way at their sites.
Access to sites, utilities and the prime
factors to expedite construction were the
main subjects of the agenda. International
Area participants were briefed in Spanish
and French, and national and state exhibitor
represent.mves were .llerred to the impor-
tance of submitting construction surring
dates at the earliest possible moment.
Former New York Governor Charles
Polerti, Fair vice president for Interna-
tional Atf.urs .1nd Exhibtts, welcomed the
more than 175 construction representatives
at the first conference which included pM-
tiCipants from 'i2 natwns. General Wilh.tm
E. Potter, Fair executive vtc<:: prcstdent,
discussed me.111s to .tccelcr.ue the work of
the .Hchitcctural, .md con-
firms and stressed the tmportance

ALOHA, HAWAII!
Ground was broken on November 1st
for the exhibit of the State of Hawaii
which will rise on a 113,838 square-foot
site in the Lake Area of the Fair. Robert
Moses, president of the Fair and General
William E. Potter, executive vice president
and head of the Federal and States Area,
joined Lt. Governor James Kealoha, chair-
man of the Hawaii World's Fair commis-
sion, for the ceremonies.
Discussing the exhibit, General Potter
termed it one of the most exciting features
of the Fair. He noted that "it will not only
add to interest in Hawaii as an interna-
tional tourist attraction, but will also ex
pose Hawaii's business advantages to the
estimated 70,000,000 visitors expected for
the Fair's rwo six month seasons."
Tropical Paradhe Planned
Architect Reino Aarnio has designed an
exhibit that will transform the selected
area into a tropical island paradise, where
typical features of the state will be re-
created.
The plans, as approved by the Hawaiian
Commission, call for an Aloha Building
with displays depicting various of
Hawaiian history and culture. The eight
islands which dot the Pacific to create the
State itself will be on view in their proper
positions in a miniature ocean, while many-
hued rainbows play above a 40-foot
waterfall.
The native charm will be further dis-
played in the Five Volcanoes Restaurant,
reaching partly over the Lake, where Island
cuisine is to be featured and in shops dis-
playing typical Hawaiian merchandise for
sale. An outdoor reproduction of the
Honolulu showplace, "Ulu Mau Village,"
will present the thatched hms and life of
old Hawaii. e

Present for Hawaii's groundbreaking cere-
monies are loki and Olina with the shovels,
Lt. Gov. and Mrs. James Keatoha, and Robert
Moses.

and creator of the famed "Steve Canyon" cartoon strip for the
Chicago Sun Times Syndicate. With many cartoons already inspired
by the coming New York World's Fair, including drawings by Walt
Kelly, AI Capp and Milton Caniff, the talented guests are being invited
to open their drawing pads and "foresee" what the Fair might be
like for the projected 70 million visitors from all parts of the world.

sponds to the Pope's message on the occa-
sion of the groundbreaking for the Vatican

a message carried by radio throughout
Europe said: 'The theme of the New York
World's Fair is peace through mutual Ull
demanding on a shrinking globe 111 .Ill
expanding universe.
"We welcome the support of the Vati-
can at this crucial time and its willingness
to s<:nd us its greatest and most moving
sculptural symbol. We regard the an-
nouncement of the beginning of construc-
tion of the Vatican Pavilion as an event of
immense world significance."
Also responding to the Holy Fathers
message at the Fair was the Very Rev.
Msgr. Timothy J. Flynn, director of the
Bureau of Information of the Archdiocese
of New York. The Most Rev. John J.
Maguire, Vicar General and Auxiliary

General Cigar Exhibit Announced
General Cigar Company, Inc. will con
struct a special exhibit on a 15,000 square-
foot tract it has leased at the Fair. Julius
Strauss, president of General Cigar, an
nounced that the specially-designed Gen
era! Cigar exhibit will be centrally located,
directly facing the Solar Fountain, just
across from the International Area on the
Avenue of Europe.
He pointed out that the General Cigar
building, as at the last New York Worlds
Fair in 19391940, will occupy the major
portion of its 1 5,000 square-foot site. Both
the building and a generous landscaped
area surrounding it will, Mr. Strauss said.
"provide an atmosphere and location where
.1 mJ.n C.tll sit down and quietly enjoy .1
good cigar with his family and friends."

the brewing company will exhibit its 120-
year history in one segment of a three-part

recent visit to the Fair produced no practical plan for an exhibit.
C) Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company- They were originally interested
in a Bucket Ride but such a feature will now not be included in the

Looking forward to the time when there will in back areas in the Fair
which I will be unable to rent, I asked the neral Motors' Fair representatives
if they would be interested in leasing lots 2, 3 and 4 which adjoin their plot.
(See attached drawing), They rejected the ide of renting more space from us.
I then asked if they might be interested, at some later date, in assuming the
responsibility to landscape and maintain these areas, providing I could not rent
them. I emphasized that it might be sometime before this would be determined.
Their landscape architect made an estimate "and came up with the figure of more
than $200,000 to landscape and maintain this area during the two of the
Fair. The GM representatives called and advised me that they were interested
in assuming this responsibility provided that the Fair would permit them to use
some of the area for outdoor exhibits. It would also be necessary for them to
revise their plans and obtain authorization from Mr. Donner to spend these
additional funds, On that basis they requested that I give them an answer to
this proposal by October 15.
1 have discussed this with Mr. Constable who feels we should go ahead, providing
that we expand the Brass Rail area which now fronts on the walkway immediately
adjacent to the GM site. I discussed it with Mr. Thornton who can see no legal
problem to doing this.
1 have advised GM that, if you approve, this matter should be kept confidential
for several months because I am carrying on active negotiations with several
other exhibitors at our standard rate of $8.00 per square foot. It is my
recommendation that we should make this area available to General Motors on the
above-mentioned basis, Mr. Donner approves the increase in their
budget.

We have been successful in getting Goodyear
to reopen the question of World's Fair parti-
cipation. They are presently seriously
considering 100,000 sq.ft. of the old Chrysler
site for a Goodyear exhibit in conjunction
with a Carveyor ride across Grand Central
Parkway and back to the Goodyear site, They
have been in contact with Walt Disney about
putting together this exhibit, Mr, Motley
has written to the President, Mr. DeYoung,
advising him that arrangements have been made
to include the Carveyor in a package together
with the exhibit and urging an affirmative
decision on participation, A final decision
should be reached in the next two weeks.
Agreement has been reached with Greyhound on
their total site in the Transportation
Section, however, there are a few items .re-
maining unresolved at the momemt holding up
final agreement. We anticipate a lease
signing in the near future.
All doubts about the feasibility of this
project were erased this week when the
Messrs, Gottlieb and Lippert
were able to secure the partial sponsorship
of the Dodge Division of Chrysler. The Fair's
legal staff is now preparing a lease draft
and we will progress this rapidly in order to
have the Fair receive the $175,000 down pay-
ment as soon as possible. This will be an
admission show and the Pair will receive a
guaranteed rental of $750,000 against 107. of
gross revenues,
I have concluded negotiations with General
Motors on our proposal that they assume all
obligations to landscape and maintain 62,000
square feet of back area adjoining their
exhibit, In return for the substantial addi-
tional expenses that General Motors will
incur, they will be permitted to install a
limited number of outdoor exhibits on the nev.1
space. The Fair's legal staff has prepared
an amendment to the General Motors lease and
we anticipate it will be executed later this
month.

On September 18a Century Grill signed a
lease for 11,001 sq. ft. We have concluded
negotiations for an additional strip of space
measuring sq. ft. The Fair's legal
staff has prepared an amendment to the basic
lease to enlarge the premises and we have
transferred it to the lessee. We anticipate
that the amendment will be executed sometime
in November. Century Grill will operate an
unusual type of restaurant featuring ham-
burger steaks prepared in accordance with the
local customs and recipes of the various
nations of the world.
An agreement has been reached in conjunction
with Mr. Constable for leasing 15.052 sq. ft.
for a luxury restaurant. The agreement calls
for a sliding scale of percentage of gross
revenues to be applied against the basic
rental of $8.00 per sq. ft. The lease docu-
ment is currently being prepared by the Fair's
legal department.
We expect a final decision on this project in
the near future.
In conjunction with the Director of Conces-
we have reached a agree-
ment for the lease of 6,000 sq. of space
to the Budget Rent-A-Car Corporation. This
organization which had the exclusive conces-
sion at the Seattle World's Fair, is a new
(5 years old), growingJ and aggressive com-
petitor in the auto rental field. We have
refused to give them an exclusive concession.
As a matter of fact, we believe that their
presence will spur Hertz and Avis to partici
pate in the Fair.
After many months of ne,otiations in conjunc-
tion with Mr. Constable s officep the stroller
rental concession now appears to be very firm.
Strol-A-Matic will occupy two 6,000 sq. ft.
plots in the Transportation Section in addi-
tion to sq. ft. in the Industrial
Section. We anticipate a lease signing some-
time in December.

They have contacted about forty companies
and although the response to date has been
very there has been some indicatiOtl
of interest, O'Connor's staff has meetings
scheduled for early November with the Allstate
staff and with trade groups such as the Insur
ance Institute for Highway Safety.
Socony' s staff is continuing their planning
for an exhibit based on their successful
Seattle Fair exhibit, Although we continue to
tmpress on them the urgency to expedite the
project, they still have not gone for top
management approval of their plan which would
require about 10,000 sq. ft.
As of Goodrich does not have the Fair
under active consideration. However, if we
are successful in securing a Goodyear exhibit,
we will again attempt to interest Goodrich in
exhibiting.
Although the reaction to the Marine Center
displayed by prospective exhibitors at the
Chicago Boat Show was mixed, this project is
still moving forward with the Outboard Marine
Corporation playing a major role.
Following Chrysler's decision to enlarge its
site, I contacted American Motors. Mr. Aber
nethy, President, is now again reviewing the
company's previous decision not to exhibit.
We have been requested to allocate 10,000
sq. ft. at the western end of Lot 5019 to
!-Iobile Care, a charitable organization which
will supply wheel chairs and/or other means of
locomotion to non-ambulatory visitors to the
Fair. Since this work will be done in
connection with Greyhound, a portion of Lot
50-19 was selected because of its adjacency
to the Greyhound exhibit. We expect that the
lease will be signed sanetime in November.

whereby the tenant will pay $8.00 per sq. ft.
against 12/'o of the gross. The Fair's legal
staff has prepared a lease draft and we
believe that the lease will be signed in late
November.
I have had several inconclusive discussions
with Shelby Thompson of NASA. The main object
now is to interest several companies in this
field to become the nucleus of an exhibit
while we attempt to obtain Administration
support.
Juan Trippe has not yet replied to show any
progress after he agreed to attempt to gather
all the Airlines together in an exhibit. I
hope to have an answer prior to the Executive
Committee meeting.
Mr. Chairman of the Board of API
met Mr. Disney at Disney land and viewed
the presentation of the Hall of Presidents

it appears that Disney is willing to be more
reasonable about this item, Mr. McCollum
will take this up with the major companies of
the American Petroleum Institute at the

MEMORANDUM TO THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
FROM CHARLES POLETTI
I have prepared, as of November 7th, the situation with
respect to the International Division. I wish to supplement it with the
following facts:
1) Thus far, two nations which have executed contracts
have subsequently withdrawn, namely, Afghanistan and the USSR.
Israel has withdrawn, but it had not signed a contract. It did every-
thing else but. Also, the Islam Mosque is out.
2) The BIE, during the past two months, has intensi-
fied its efforts to hurt the New York World's Fair. Pressure has been
applied on BIE countries and, in addition, pressure has been applied
on the European Federation of Industries which is an organization
representing all the big industries of Western Europe. In fact, at a
recent meeting, there was a discussion about the New York World's
Fair and the BIE disapproval. The representatives of British Industry
were particularly strong in their assertions that the industries of
Western Europe should not participate in the New York World's Fair,
but should abide by the regulations of the BIE. The Government of
Great Britain has continued its efforts against the New York World's
Fair. Instead of relenting, it has intensified its opposition. The
representatives of Germany also showed an unfriendly attitude.
3) On November 13th there will be a BIE meeting at
which it will be decided that Montreal will have a world's fair in 1967
under the aegis of the BIE. People fr-r,m Canada have already contacted
various governments to invite them to come tc Canada's World's Fair
of 1967.

4) There are a few international participants which
are sadly in need of financing assistance1 especially the Union
Africaine et Malagache.
5) Because of the BIE1 the International Division
has been compelled to organize private groups for pavilions repre-
senting various countries which are members of the BIE. We have
done this in France1 Spain, Tunis and Belgium, and are doing it in
Switzerland and Morocco. We have our :fingers crossed as to the
:financial strength of some of these groups. We have been assisting
them in all ways possible in finding companies that will take space
in the pavilions.

SUBJECT QABLE RIDE AND GREYHOUND AMENDMENT
I attach General Whipple's memorandum of November 7th in regard
to the proposed cable ride. I agree with his recommendation that we be
authorized to negotiate and execute an agreement with Von Roll on the
basis outlined in his memorandum, with the understanding that we can
switch to Cayuga if Von Roll proves difficult to deal with.
We have met with Greyhound's representatives and have come to an
agreement with them as to the amount Greyhound will be paid if we install
this ride, as General Whipple recommends, as a one-way point-to-point
ride, which, according to Greyhmmd, means that it will become partly
"transportation
11
competitive with the Greyhoillld concession.
Mr. Preusse, :Mr. Thornton, Mr. Witt and I negotiated the agreement
with Greyhound which I now recommend. The agreement is that if the ride
is installed as outlined above we will, in the first instance, pay to Greyhound
At The World's Fair one half of all income received by the Fair Corporation
on account of operation of the cable ride. illtimately, however, the Fair
Corporation will get back -- pursuant to the terms of our basic agreement
With Greyhoillld -- 40% of the amount initially paid to Greyhound At The
World's Fair on account of the cable ride operation if Greyhound At The
World's Fair makes a profit.
We expect that Greyhound At The World's Fair will make a profit.
If it does, the net result will be that the final division of money received on
account of the cable ride will be 70% to the Fair and 30% to Greyhound.
I
I recommend that . e

be authorized to negotiate and execute an agree-

SUBJECT:
In accordance with your instructions I have further investigated cable rides along the
approved route across the International area of the Fair, and now have firm proposals
from (1} Von Roll Iron Works of Switzerland and (2) Cayuga Construction Company
allled with the Pohliq Company of Germany. Both groups .are sol.Uld financ1ally
1
excellent technically
1
and they have practically identical proposals physically.
Negotiations have been carried out in close coordination particularly with Gov. Poletti
and Mr. Constable, also General Potter, Mr. Witt and Mr. Thornton. Gil Clarke bas
approved the layout as regards its aesthetic effect.
Although alternatives are available, the best proposal will provide a double ride,
carrying two lines of cars in each direction, supported on a single steel column.
Each car will carry 4 persons. Passengers will get on at either station and dis-
mount at the other. The ride will take them 112 feet above the main axis of the
Fair, and will last 5 minutes. Fare will be 509. The capacity will be 4800
passengers an hour, probably over 50, 000 for a maximum day, with a total of
probably 15,000,000 for the whole period of the Fair (This is 62% of theoretical
maximum capacity). Von Roll has submitted experience data which indicates such
figures can be reached. This ride promises to be a major attraction for us.
Financially both proposals are excellent. All costs of construction, operation and
maintenance will be advanced by the concessionaire. Net returns to the Fair will
be by percentages of qross returns, summarized as follows:

On the basis of these proposals, the Von Roll ride would net us slightly more revenue
for gross receipts up to $5,000, 000; but if gross receipts rose to $7, 500,000 Cayuga
would pa.y us $350,000 more.
The Von Roll proposal has the additional advantage that Von Roll will definitely make
a major contribution to the organization and construction of a Swiss Pavilion. Governor
Poletti feels that this is sufficiently important that we should give preference to Von
;Roll. He recommends, however, that we try to get a better proposal from Von Roll.
Neither proposal contemplates a down payment; therefore, it seems that Von Roll
should be asked to give a down payment of $100, 000. Other usual legal and financial
provisions will also have to be added.
I am advised that this ride would exceed the scope of cable ride provided for by our
present Greyhound contract and that some settlement must be arrived at with
Greyhound. Stuart Constable and Mr. Preusse have this matter under negotiation.
If agreement with Greyhound proves impracticable, we could fall back on a round
trip ride, which we have a right to do; but we would have to charge 7 5 ~ per person
(average) and our revenues would fall to approximately $1, 000, 000.
I recommend that you authorize finalizing negotiations with Von Roll as above
indicated. However, we should hold open the possibility of switching back to Cayuqa
if Von Roll proves difficult to deal with. Stuart Constable agrees, and if you approve,
he will sign the contract when finalized.

The Fair Col1 oration's standar form of agreement with parti-
cipants, both dom tic and foreign provides that preliminary plans
for participant's bfldings are to e filed no later than October 1, 1962,
and that definitive 1working dra gs must be furnished to the Fair
Corporation no latfer than J ary 1, 1963. Both the standard form of
industrial lease, fm.d the r s and regulations further provide that if
any participant ies such ans later than January 1, 1963, the Fair
Corporation may, in its cretion, accept such filing upon a showing
that participant co plete his building in time for the opening of
the Fair. In sue c s, it is provided that participant will be charged
an additions,\ 5 %) per cent of the fee for examination of plans.
The Engineering Department has received many requests from
exhibitors requesting an extension of time in which to flle their plans.
In considering such requests, it is desirable that a uniform and fair
procedure be followed in all cases. The criteria for granting such
extensions, of course, will continue to be whether the participant will
be able to complete his building in time for the opening of the Fair.
Accordingly, I recommend that paragraph (f) of Article 2 of Part 1 of
rules and regulations be amended to read as follows:
"Each participant shall furnish the Fair Corporation
with the definitive working drawings, details and complete
specifications of his building or structure no later than
January 1, 1963 or the date specified in the participant's
agreement with the Fair Corporation. If, however, the
participant is unable to comply with such requirement, the
participant may, fifteen days prior to January 1, 1963 or
the date specified in participant's agreement with the Fair
Corporation, apply to the Fair Corporation for an extension
of time in which to furnish such definitive working drawings,
details and complete specifications. No such extension will
be granted except for cause satisfactory to the Fair Corpora-
tion and upon a demonstration to the satisfaction of the Fair
Corporation that the work to be done will be completed in
time for the opening of the Fair. In the event the participant
furnishes the :F'air Corporation with the definitive working

January 1, 1963,or the date specified in participant's
agreement with the Fair Corporation, or the date specified
by the Fair Corporation in granting any extension, the
Fair Corporation may, in its discretion, accept such filing
upon a showing by the participant that the work to be done
by him or on his behalf can be completed in time for the
opening of the Fair. In such event, however, the fee
charged for examination of such defihitive working drawings
shall be increased by

It is further recommended that Chief Engineer under my
overall supervision, with the concurrence of the Vice President or
Departmental head concerned, be given the responsibility to deter-
mine whether a particular exhibitor should be given an extension of

drawings., details and complete sperifications.

Coordination of Construction
In order to help insure the expeditious completion of
construction at the Fair site, and to insure that construction
work by any particular Fair participant does not overlap or
interfere with construction work being done by another
participant or the Fair Corporation itself, it will be necessary
for the Fair Corporation to exercise general supervisory
control and coordination over construction work at the Fair
site. You have previously approved the general concept that
an addition to the Fair Corporation's .regulations giving the
Fair Corporation authority to exercise such supervisory
control and coordination would be appropriate. Accordingly,
I recommend the addition of a new Article XXVI of the Fair
Corporation's GeneralRegulations as follows:
XXVI OF GENERAL REGULATIONS
CONTROL OF CONSTRUCTION AT THE FAIR SITE
Construction work at the Fair site shall be subject to such
general supervisory control and coordination by the Fair Corpora-
tion as the Fair Corporation may deem necessary and appropriate.
Such supervision and control by the Fair Corporation will be exer-
cised generally byrepresentatives of the Fair Corporation's
Engineering Department, and may extend among other things to
matters such as excavations relating to or touching upon paving
and curbing, interference or destruction of trees on the Fair
site, pile driving or other operations at night, ground cover or
other installations not on the participant's premises, excavation
or depositing of fill or other excess materials on property other
than the participant's premises, and relocation of installed street
light standards or other Fair Corporation construction. Upon
request by the Fair Corporation or its representatives, the
participarLt shall furnish, or cause his engineers and contractors
to furnish, complete and accurate information concerning
participant's actual or projected construction operations.
The supervisory control and cocrdination contemplated by
such proposed regulation will be exercised by the Chief Engineer's
Office under my supervision. ~

SU8JIECT:
Your approval is requested of the following report for presentation to the
Executive Committee.
CONSTRUCT.I:ON- DESIGN AND WORLD'S FAIR CONTRACTS
Design work is continuing about as scheduled, but more time than anticipated
has been required to finalize certain contracts passing through city administrative
channels, particularly the entrance building and Kissena corridor grading. Good
'progress is being made on design for pools and fountains and street lighting. A
technical model has been constructed of the pumps, piping, wiring and lights of. the
pool of industry, in order that prospective bidders may understand this wmsual and
complex design. A model has also been erected of the street lighting standards,
luminaire, and accompanying loudspeaker. Design is nearing completion for the
balance of the paving in the main exhibit area, and for the parking fields at Flushing
airport and Meadow Lake. Good progress is being made on the designs for the
parking area and utilities for the Flushlng Bay Marina.
Electrical and telephone service is now available for exhibitor construction
at all parts of the main exhibit area. Necessary for cross-overs are being
rapidly placed under the low tension electrical contract; and paved roads should be
available reasonably close to all exhibitors in the main exhibit area by the onset of
winter weather.
The Security Building has been closed in; and work continues satisfactorily
on the Press Building and three other maintenance buildings. Two of the less
important service buildings are delayed by necessary coordination with the highway
contract at the VanWyck- L. I. Expressway interchange. This same highway
contract also affects other work which is now being started in the Lake Area.
Satisfactory arrangements for coordination with this contractor are being worked
out with assistance of the Triboro Bridge Authority. A contract bas been awarded
for construction of entrance ticket booths and gate houses. Grading and fi1l.inq
operations are in progress in the lllth Street Bus Terminal Area.

EXEIBITORS DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
Exhibitors' Advisory :Memoranda have been issued covering (a) noise levels
after reqular working hours, and (b) warning of the potential danger to construction
operations constituted by high tension cables which are now activated.
Seventeen of our largest exhibitors are now actively engaged in construction
a.nd a number of additional jobs will be started this month. Major steel work on the
Ford exhibit is the most spectacular item under way, but General Motors and
General Electric have made major progress with walls and steel, Port Authority has
also started steel work,and Kodak has a complete building slab in place.
On 30 October the first job meeting was held with contractors, architects
and field representatives of those exhibitors who have started work or are just about
to. This meeting proved useful in getting construction operations under way smootllly
and rapidly.
The labor force increased substantially in October. World's Fair and
Park Department contracts employ 348, and 508 are engaged on exhibitor's contracts.

SUBJECT: EXH!BITORS' CONSTRUCTION CONFERENCE
1. Attendance - (See attached tabulation)
2. Assessment of Results
- Purpose achieved; Exhibitors made aware of urgent necessity for accel-
erated progress.
~ Questionnaires - (sample attached}
Questionnaires were turned in by only 20 (17 - International-3- State)
out of 62 exhibitors participating.
Of the 17 International exhibitors' questionnaires, only 7 -(China,
India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Sierra Leone, and Venezuela) were filled
out with any degree of complateness, and established realistic construction
schedules. Remaining questionnaires - (Belgium, Bolivia, Dominican Republic,
Ireland, Malaya, Mexico, Peru, Spain, Sudan and Turkey) presented little or
no information.
Of the 3 State Exhibitor questionnaires, only 1 (West Virginia) established
a realistic construction schedule. Remaining questionnaires (Delaware and
Florida) gave only information previously known.
While the immediate results of the conference as indicated above were
disappointing, they have identified the exhibitors on whom additional pressure
must be brought and hence have facilitated our task.
4. Action
- Where International exhi biters have not yet signed contracts or
selected a foreign architect, pressure must be applied by the International
staff with assistance, as requested, from the Chief Expediter. Where foreign
architects have been selected, initiative for ensuring accelerated progress
passes to the Chief Expediter.
(Note: At meeting of International staff and Chief Expediter, on
October 31st specific actions to be taken with respect to each
exhibitor were determined. These actions are now in progress.)
--Action similar to above is under way for State Exhibitors --
The Industrial and Transportation exhibitors (R. C. A. and S. K. F. Indus-
tries, Inc.) have only recently signed up. If progress does not appear satis-
factory over the next few weeks, expediting action will be taken.

MEMORANDUM TO ARTHUR S. HODGKISS
FROM JOHN T. O'NEILL
SUBJECT: Progress R.eport on Arterial Highway Construction
in _vicini tv of llvorld' s Fair
No substantial improvement in progress has been made since
the last report. Several progress schedules have been revised to
"theoretically
11
bring the contracts up to schedule.
Contract No. 2 (Merritt-Mt. Vernon) is already falling behind
the new revised schedule. More significant however is the fact that
the service road bridges and the interchange ramps at the Long Island
Expressway are not being accelerated to insure their being ready for
traffic this year. The contractor has informally promised the Fair
that the Fair bridge across the Long Island Expressway will be
completed by January 1, 1963. Both of these endeavors are extremely
dubious at the present rate of progress.
Contract No. 15 (Ottaviano) requires that the new Flushing
River bridge be open for traffic by January 31, 1963. Failure to do so
can result in the two adjoining contracts being delayed. This contract
is over three months behind schedule. It appears that the contractor is
ignoring critical directions by the engineer and the State to increase
working forces, submit plans for winter concrete operations and expedite
steel erection.
