Griggs, winner of the nation-wide Believe-It-Or-Not contest held by Robert Ripley, is shown abode as he waits for the executioner's blade to come down in the trick guillotine at the Hindu Rope Trick show on Treasure Island.  Griggs, who received a trip to the Bolden Gate international Exposition as his prize, came all the way from Pittsburgh, Pa. to visit the Western World's Fair.
