During a recent visit through- out the East at which time Knight contacted leading industrialists in Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Akron, New York, and ,other Cit- ies, it was learned that many man- ufacturers and those in scientific research are looking to California fairs for an opportunity to place before the people of the west their latest "right off the line" products.
