- WEST VIRGINIA
Highlights include a trip through a coal mine, an exhibition of glassblowing and a chance to win a mountaintop vacation home.
There are also industrial displays, panoramas of the state's tourist attractions and a working model of the Echo II satellite.
FRAGILE MEMENTOS. Glassblowers create bowls and vases, horses and fish. The items are for sale.
BOTTOM OF THE PIT. Visitors walk through a simulated coal mine where dioramas trace the history of mining from the days of donkey cars to today's modern machines.
HIGH IN THE SKY. A six-minute color film shows the new $850,000 radio telescope at Green Bank and describes how it probes the secrets of the universe.
TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN. Every visitor is given a free ticket; at the end of the Fair the lucky ticket-holder wins five acres of West Virginia mountaintop and a new vacation lodge. Also to be given away: a two-year-old thoroughbred colt, broken in and ready for racing.
GOOD FOOD. A cafeteria features West Virginia specialties such as ham, steaks and fried chicken.
