  • Description

    JUST 117 DAYS BEFORE THE OPENING OF THE JAPANESE-STAGED EXPO-70 AT OSAKA, A TOKYO DEPARTMENT STORE IS GIVING VISITORS A PREVIEW OF THE EVENT BY PRESENTING ITS OWN MINI-EXPO -- WITH THE BACKING OF THE EXPO-70 AUTHORITIES.

    HUNDREDS OF MISS EXPO-70'S -- THE HOSTESSES WHO WILL BE SHOWING THE PUBLIC ROUND THE SITE -- ARE PERFORMING THE SAME FUNCTION AT THE MINI-EXHIBITION.

    BUT IN THIS CASE, THE DOZENS OF PAVILIONS AND ATTRACTIONS FROM THE SITE ARE REPRODUCED ONLY AS MODELS.

    THE MINI-EXPO IS PART OF THE LARGE CAMPAIGN MOUNTED BY THE AUTHORITIES TO HELP ATTRACT VISITORS TO EXPO-70. ADMISSION REDUCTIONS FOR YOUNG WORKERS, AND FREE ENTRANCE TO THE SITE FOR SCHOOLCHILDREN, ARE TWO OTHER MEASURES CURRENTLY UNDER CONSIDERATION.

    ALTOGETHER, 72 COUNTRIES WILL BE EXHIBITING IN EXPO-70. THE AUTHORITIES SAY THAT ABOUT 80 PER CENT OF THE CONSTRUCTION WORK ON THE SITE HAS NOW BEEN COMPLETED.
