    Background: VISNEWS filmed the 37th. Milan International Samples Fair, Italy, Apl. 15, - the biggest yet. There are 1,300 exhibitors representing 35 countries officially and another 29 countries unofficially. Exhibits at the fair range from apples to Zeta. Some of the World's best live cock are on show and for the first time there is a nuclear energy section.

    The fair was opened by President Gronchi, in the Palace of Nations, Apl. 12. Last year about 94,000 people visited the exhibition, this year by the time the doors close on Apl. 27 four million people are expected to have toured the stands.

    One of the novelties is a set of five telephones, which give the visitor a detailed description of the exhibits on the stand in any one of five languages.

    A furniture manufacturer has attempted to raise public confidence in his products by submitting them to continuous water spraying in the open-air.

    Britain's space is filled with items of benefit to modern life - television, radar, nuclear energy products, turbo-jet engines and plastic materials.
