Another building, representing the publishing industry, is that of "Time" and "Fortune", two national magazines.

This pavilion is located just south of the Science Palace on the edge of the lagoon.
This large building with a high ceiling has an air-conditioned reading room with many comfortable chairs and 2000 different magazines from all over the world are kept in this pavilion.

Two open terraces overlooking the lagoon give an excellent view of the exhibition at night and the resting areas are really appreciated.

This building is also of particular interest to girls' colleges.
They have the opportunity to use it as a meeting place for afternoon tea.
It also offers parents an information service about schools for their daughters.
Colleges for girls are presented such as: Smith, Barnard, Wellesley, Randolph-Mason, Radcliffe, Vassar, Bryn-Mawr, Wells, Lake Erie, Goucher, Mount Holyoke, Connecticut, Milwaukee-Downer, Mills, Trinity, Wheaton, Elmyra and Sweetbriar
