PEPSI-COLA
The pavilion brings a small-scale Disneyland to the Fair in a salute to the children of the world. A series of ingenious Walt Disney animations is the main show. The U.S. Committee for the United Nations Children's Fund operates an adjoining building with its own exhibit area. In the larger building a nine-minute boat ride takes visitors through miniature settings from many countries, where Disney-made figures of children, animals and birds sing and dance. In the adjoining pavilion of the U.S. Committee for UNICEF, which is also sponsored by the Pepsi-Cola Company, are pictures of children from countries around the world, indicating the needs served by the United Nations agency. On top of this smaller pavilion is the 120-foot Tower of the Four Winds, which is visible from most of the fairgrounds.
* Admission: free. Boat ride: adults, 95 cents; children, 60 cents.
Highlights
GIRDLING THE GLOBE. The boat ride, called "It's a Small World - A Salute to UNICEF," carries spectators past such familiar scenes as France's Eiffel Tower, a Dutch windmill and India's Taj Mahal. The animated figures dance, cavort with droll animals, and in their various languages sing a song called "It's a Small World," composed especially for the exhibit.
HELP FOR CHILDREN. In the smaller pavilion, UNICEF greeting cards, books, games and posters are on sale. A garden has photographic displays on the theme of every child's right to security, good health and education. From the Tower of the Four Winds dangle colorful shapes which twist and dance in the breeze.
