guided into a theater -- a triangular area bound on two sides
by 12 foot walls, and appropriately railed in.
After about a minute, a voice will instruct the audience to
keep their eyes on the wall afore them. As the narration continues,
the audience will be given a brief description of the history
of land transportation -- both orally and through use of an exciting
series of colorful transparencies and projections.
The audience, standing on a 38-foot-diameter turntable, will
turn slowly to view a color sound film that pans closer and closer
to a Greyhound Bus traveling through the countryside.
As the camera reaches the bus itself, the area beyond the
walls suddenly will fill with a stereo sound effect and full-dimension
color sound motion picture.
The audience will virtually experience being in the
bus itself. For two minutes, the audience will share with the
bus passengers the intimacy and pleasure of bus travel, and get
a first-hand look at the countryside.
At the end of this life-like experience, the bus will pull
into a modern Greyhound bus terminal.
For the next minute and a half, the audience--now revolved
slowly to face a large, lighted map of the United States -- will

At the left of the exhibit pavilion, a "Lady Greyhound
Leisure Travel Center" will be provided, aimed at the growing
leisure travel market. In this relaxing area, visitors can take
it easy while watching a short color sound film, an actual Greyhound
tour. The leisure travel center will utilize bus seats set among
planters and dividers. In the middle of this travel center will
be a special events stage on which will be presented such interesting
events as appearances by Lady Greyhound, fashion shows by Greyhound's
living symbol, and "State of the Week" presentations.
After viewing the Greyhound exhibit, Fairgoers may enjoy a
leisurely meal in the adjacent, attractively decorated Greyhound
Post House Restaurant.
